I know I posted pictures of my low wall awhile back but added my Hepburn 32-20. Haven't shot it for afew years because of the many eye problems I was having. So now have the bug again for this little cartridge. A neat little plinker. Dale.

Wow what a great pair of rifles! I would suspect there weren't a numerous amount of hepburns chambered in that caliber, thanks for providing the photo!

Thanks !!  Per Tom Rowe, from his Hepburn book, he says "that it was occasionally found in Hepburns". That would make me want to believe that not many were chambered for the 32-20. Dale.

Yes, a neat plinker. Well, to be more precise, two neat plinkers. Tongue

Ballards may be weaker,

My favorite pistol caliber in a rifle! I have a couple .32-20 singles in a #2 Roller and a #2 Ballard. That Hepburn is super, as is the Low Wall!

Sheesh, Vall- after chiding us about the nomenclature of the Ballard vs. Winchester naming of the old cartridges, I'da figured you knew that the .32-20 WCF was, for sure a rifle cartridge. From Winchester. Yer forgiven, though.  Roll Eyes

Sorry Pat. I know the .32-20 is a rifle caliber, but such a small case always seems more of a pistol length cartridge. But I still love the .32-20 in pistols or rifles, but especially in single shot rifles!!

I guess I like them also. Thinking back, I've had 9. 3 S&W revolvers, a Colt Single Action, a Martini, a Savage Sporter, a Remington 25, a 92 Winchester, and a Browning 53. Still have the S&W 3rd Model Hand Ejector Target with Roper grips, the Savage Sporter with the proper receiver peep, and the Browning 53. In the works is a 32-20 BRC choked barrel on my Stevens 44 1/2. I kind of regret not keeping the really nice Remington 25. So, yes, I like them. As my dad used to say about the revolver, "shoots like a rifle."

I have the Rem #2 and Ballard #2, plus revolvers in SAA and S&W handguns. I've owned others but down to these 4 now. I love hitting 500 yd. dingers with my Rem. and Ballard rifles in .32-20!

By this perverse logic, 38 Special, 357 Mag, 44 mag, 45 Colt should all be considered rifle cartridges cause they have been chambered in rifles for so many decades.
