There are two on gunbroker. 32 H&R's are some of the finest quality made guns from Ruger and Marlin but the joke is if you don't reload you better get ready to spend several times over the gun's cost on ammo. (when you can find it) :-[
There were plenty of them made hence two on one aution site alone.
The two on GB right now are priced HIGH! The dude from Oklahoma has had that one for sale for months. I've seen it get as high as the high $900s on bids but it still has yet to reach his reserve price.
The other has a Buy It Now of around $1100 I believe.
I recently started reloading .32 H&R for a Ruger SP101, which is IMMENSELY less expensive than factory ammo. Fortunately, there is a large CAS community locally, so reloading components for the caliber are readily available.
IF (a big if) I find one at a reasonable price, my intent is to rechamber it in .327 Federal.
Yeh thanks guys.....but I was wanting to get an idea of how many were made and when???
I have just purchased one, comes with dies, should arrive Mon or Tue. Have also ordered 200 Starline cases and 90 grain Sierra projectiles.
From what I read on MO they are a great little gun....looking foward to shooting it lots.
I don't think that a lot were made. Like about 1000? They are kinda rare, but they'd be very useful, or more useful actually, in .327 Mag. If rechambered, it could shoot the .32 H&R Mag, .32 S&W Long, and the .32 S&W Short too. That should make them fairly handy and fun.
I have two H&R mag Rugers and two .32-20 Marlin rifles. If you plan to shoot your rifle with jacketed bullets H110 might be just the ticket.
One thing I'm not sure of with your rifle is the height of the front sight. Higher velocity rounds may require a taller bead - I'm thinking that particular rifle was set up with the intention of using cast loads for Cowboy Action Shooting.
Oh - I'm jealous. Big fan of .32 cartridges and never even got to see on of the Marlin .32 mag rifles before they stopped production on them. :'(
