Welcome to Gunslot. Nice old piece. Civil War Era? Glad to have you!
This rifle takes 32 cal rimfire "short".
This was my father's gun and he is not fired it for 60 years due to a broken firing pin that was never fixed.
his birthday is coming up in a few weeks and I wanted to restore the gun and make it possible for him to shoot it again at 75 years of age.
The pin has been replaced and the bore cleaned and treated and all the mechanisms worked and set. it is already to go except i can not find any amo.
Navy Arms - Old Western Scrounger - Buffalo Arms- none have any or know of how to obtain any.
I have pout feelers out to many collectors and still could only find 32 long.
if anyone could turn me on to a box it would make for a great B-Day for the old man :)
nice, is that the military model?
good luck! I have found a couple sites but they want $15-$20 per bullet because they're so rare. I'm not sure I would even trust shooting these because they were produced over 100 yrs ago.
found this on a thread discussing 32 short ammo.....
