Just curious! I have something similar. No markings on it and the stock is broken. Is there any more details or pics you could get of the rifle. I would love to replace my stock but know not where to find one. I have no idea on the ammo you are asking about. Sorry!

The best place that I can think of for finding old .32 rimfire is gun shows. Yhey would be the best place to start. Then maybe you might find a guy that makes them or has a surplus of them from a gun show. As far as online buying I am not sure.

Default old gun

for ammo try the company ...''old western scrounger'' some of the old .32 were in reality black powder cartridges..not smokeless your homework on this and have the gun checked out by a certified gunsmith before firing it or even cleaning it for that matter as modern solvents can harm the finish on old guns

You rifle is more than likely a Stevens Crackshot or a Favorite. Navy Arms occasionally does a run of 32 rimfire. Check their site or OWS since they now own it. Also check out Dixie Gun Works. They have a form of reloadable rimfire you can use for 32 rimfire.

Dixie Gun Works muzzleloading, blackpowder and rare antique gun supplies.
