    my latest find 1888 in 32-20

    Bought this not sure but looks like the barrel has been cut and has a bad bore. I know they didn't make many of them any idea what they are worth ?

    Shoule be a fun gun, .32-20 is a neat round. I have an 1889 in .32-20 but I had to have it relined, now it shoots great!! Can't give you a value, but with a bad bore I'd guess at $300-$500. Either way, it's a cool old gun. Only about 4800 were made over about five years. The design was basically a down sized 1881.

    If you did not pay to much for it have the barrel relined 32.20 is a real fun cal. but how bad? ive seen crappy bores shoot good. try some ACME bullet 115 gr coated bullets.
