Default Where can I get a 32

My dad has a friend that has a 32 cal. ML that he shoots squirrels and stuff with. Where can I get one, and how much do they cost? Also does anyone have one, if so how do you like it? thanks..

I have a 32 cal. Crocket and I like it a lot..The only bad thing is you
have to swab the bore after every 1 or 2 shots in order to load
it again..They foul fast..Now this is with Goex black powder that
I am using..I have no idea what triple 7 or Pyrodex would do..
I have a red dot scope on mine..But I am thinking of going to
a regular cross hair for finer accuracy. The dot covers up too
much of the target..I can't remember what I paid for mine..
so I can't help you there..Good luck,you'll find one if you look
around....John

Nice one on Gunbroker but you'll pay out the nose for it http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=89934263 The Cherokee, especially in .32, sells pretty high nowadays due to rarity.

Another option is get a Renegade or Hawkins from Thompson Center and then throw a Green Mountain Barrel on them in .32 caliber or better I think, a .40 caliber. The larger caliber does not fowl out as fast and if you run into say a coyote along the way, you can give him a real bad day. Also in some states, that is the smallest caliber legal for White tail deer. The .40 caliber is not all that big of a caliber.

Although there is some appeal of the .32 caliber. I have thought about them as well. Also to control the fowling, try some APP 3f powder and shoot that.

A 36 cal is nice, having been more commen it is easier to find stuff for and its just big enough so it wont foul as bad as the small calibers. If you are only going to have one gun you might also consider a 45, a light load will work fine for small game and its just big enough to be legal for deer in most places. Lee

Traditions has their Crocket rifle in .32 and Shenandoa in .36 with half and full stock.
www.traditionsfirearms.com

For a little nicer quality and finish in myview, Pedersoli has .32 and .36 caliber available in the Frontier with I think .32 in Kentucky, Pennsyulvania and I think a couple of others. In either Flintlock or Percussion.
www.davide-pedersoli.com
www.dixiegun.com(Distributor)
www.cabelas.com (Distributor) BLue Ridge is cabela's version the DP Frontier.
http://www.davide-pedersoli.com/default.aspx?item=distributori&lang=en

For nicer yet but still under $1K (or much more $ if you want custom), check out Track of the Wolf. They currenty have a .36, .37 and .38 calibers in percussionfor less than a grand. Also have kit's as well.

My experience with a .32 as a small game rifle left me wanting something bigger. The .32 is good for squirrels, but slightly larger game (groundhog, raccoon, fox, coyote) needs something a bit heavier in my opinion. A .36 or .40 might be a better choice if you plan on hunting anything bigger than squirrels.
