Single Six 32 H&R

If you've never owned and shot a 32 H&R mag, you've probably asked yourself what a 32 H&R is good for. If you have shot this neat little 32, you know that it really doesn't matter, because it is so much fun to shoot, especially in a Single Six.

Had one of these back, in the 90s, but had to sell it to pay for medical bills, but found this on our way back from Florida. Ah, back in the 32 fun game, again!

It came with box and papers and I doubt it has had a dozen rounds through it. Made in 1990. Not cheap, but considering these were never all that common and that the cowboy action folks have been grabbing them up, we couldn't resist.

Now to get hubby all rested up and head to the range for some 32 fun.

Glad to see you are back home. And have a new gun, it just doesn't get any better than that.

I like shooting H&R mag, I shot a single six once; it had a real long barrel.
Maybe 9 inches or more and was too hard to hold steady.

But, I have shot a passel of H&R mag in some .327's.
It is a good rnd for a kid or recoil sensitive person to shoot.

A HP H&R mag does a real job on a full can of Bud Lite.

Nice! I've never shot any sort of .32, but I recently read an article about .32's and .32 mags. Sounds like a fun round. The .327 mag is what interests me, though. Probably won't ever have one, but I'm curious about them.

I had the 327 in a Ruger SP101. Loved the 327, but wasn't too thrilled with the SP. A range gun it is not. Darn sights were pretty crude and that small size and light weight made it a struggle to shoot the way I like. Sold it and got a 4" GP in 357 and never looked back. The GP is a much more comfortable gun to shoot even with the hottest 357 loads and more accurate to shoot, as well. Also one of the best triggers I've found, out of the box on a Ruger, compared to one of the worst I've had to deal with on the SP. Okay, don't get me started on the SP.

That 327 in that little gun had a real bite. The 327 is not your granny's little 32, let me tell you. It's a high pressure little rocket, all the way. The 100 grain loads in the SP made my wrist buzz after 10 shots to the point I didn't want to shoot. The 85 grain self-defense loads were more manageable. What a flat shooting little cartridge, though. If I could find the now discontinued 327 Blackhawk version, I would jump on it.

Didn't mean to hijack your thread, just answering your question .32 H&R.

But, now that it is, I had to get a Hogue monogrip for the SP 101
for me to handle the .327 in it and I think it is a 15 yd or less gun.

Now the GP 100 in .327 is a totally different issue. Good shooting
from the get go and easy recoil.

I wanted a blackhawk, but, it was hard to get locally.

Hijack, away. This is a gunner forum, right?

Even with the ammo issue ion the 327, I'd still be very tempted if a Blackhawk or even the GP in 327 came my way. I've even thought about having a custom barrel made in 327 for my Contender. Have to think the 327 would really shine in the Contender.

You can get a TC in 32-20 it is really a 30-20 with a 1 in10 twist which love .308 heavy bullet . I shot one for years in IHMSA pistol matches . The 327 can not match the modern handloaded 32-20 in accuracy and speed .

Hi Tx

You know, I've been looking at the 32-20, as a matter of fact, and it's popularity in silhouette is one of the reasons. Folks there wouldn't be using it if it didn't have some real potential. Plus, I can find barrels in the 32-20, now and then.

If you get one you will need to get the reloading special dies that loads .308 and .312 bullet in 32-20 brass . We sat round a camp fire at the 1980 Ojai Ca Region match and talked and design that 30-20 and also making the 30-30 with a 1 in 10 twist with TC rep at the match . TC listen to there shoots and there needs great company .

I was snooping around and found this old post. NCG, I think you may be my long, lost sister! I've had the twin to your gun since they were first introduced. I love my .22 Single Six, but these things are just too much fun. It's accurate and recoil is light and it's cheap to reload - what's not to like? (Well... it is a little loud with light JHP bullets and a healthy dose of 2400)

Second from bottom:

rman, that is a very impressive collection of Ruger SAs, I must say. As for my 32 Sinfle Six, got an offer at a gun show and a chance to make a nice profit, so I let it go and used the proceeds to finance another lever gun. By now, it's pretty obvious I have an addiction to lever guns.

TX, there you go, tempting me yet, again. Once I get that Max barrel paid for, I'll sure consider the Marlin. Heck, I will ALWAYS consider another Marlin. PM me the details.

This is a old post . Too late I sold the 32-20 Marlin with the 357 Rossi rifle to cop here in Tx . I also sold these 2 guns that matched the Marlin to someone on this forum which are super shooters . This is the 1st and only paper they ever shot . And the only load they ever shot . They were loaded for SASS matches to 750 FPS and not for accuracy .

Really nice 32 H&R, NCG. I’d like to have one for the same reasons. I have a 22 single six that I love to shoot, as well as a 357mag-BH & 44mag-SBH. The 32 would be a nice plinker / small game pistol with a little more power than the 22. I would probably reload for it too so it could be pretty cheap to shoot. On my list for sure.

Hi SP. My Ruger is gone, but I still shoot the 32 H&R and for one reason - it's fun. It's accurate, too, in the right gun, such as this one, my current 32 H&R. It's a Contender with a rare TCA 6.5" barrel. Shoot it regularly at 25 and even 50 yards.
