Iver Johnson's must be popular among presidential assassins then, they made a top break DA .32 used by Leon Czolgosc to attempt to assassinate president William McKinley, back in 1901.

The catalog sheets that came with my Iver Johnson Cattleman .44 Magnum (Uberti) ca. 1975 list the Cadet as " A ruggedly designed pocket revolver or kit gun now available in .38 Special and .22 Magnum.................it is also available in .32 and .38 calibers."

The enclosed price sheet, dated June 9, 1975, shows "C322 Cadet Blue-Black .32 2 1/2" Fixed (sights) $52.00"

The grips shown on the gun are checkered hard rubber with the logo "IJ" impressed in a circle at the top.

Gunpartscorp.com also lists available parts for 3 separate calibers on a 55sa cadet.

i did stumble across a Cadet in 38 special a few months ago, sold for $130 if i remember correctly.

is that 32 S&W long, or just regular 32 S&W? if it's 32 long, the ammo is relatively cheap online, available in a couple different weights, & you can even get JHP bullets. for cost i prefer the wadcutters & LRN in my 32's for range use. while not an ideal defense round, i sure as hell wouldn't want get hit with one and those wadcutters leave a perfectly round hole in whatever you shoot
