Just bought a Dan Wesson model 32 and looking for info about it. Thought this would be the place to start.

I know a little about Dan Wesson 1911s , but nothing about the revolvers.

Welcome to the Dan Wesson Forum.  Many of us have the dreaded disease called Dan Wesson Acquisition Syndrome. dwasdwasdwasdwas

Soon as the bullets show up I can try it out. I have had brass and dies for the past 20 years. Had a Ruger single six 32 Mag back then. Its long gone.

Very sweet gun. I am very fond of 32 mag and have more than a few Dans and other makes in 32H&R. I wish I hand loaded but have laid in a good supply of ammo before the price went crazy.

My conceal carry gun is a S&W Airweight in 32 mag.

S&W Airweight in 32 Mag would be a nice one to carry. I hope to find a couple boxes of factory ammo , but haven't seen any in a long time. Best I could find was 32 LC at 41.00 a box. So I will wait on bullets. LOL

The only place to get 32 mag ammo anymore is guns shows and Gunbroker, but on Gunbroker be prepared to pay dearly. Avoid Federal  in the red 50 round  boxes. They are the original production and the cases tend to split. 32 S&W Long can be loaded hot. Later 32 mag brass can be souped up to 327 Federal level. My first Revolver in 32 mag was New England Firearms 21/2"  for $200 including a box of cartridges. One of the ugliest guns ever made. When the first shot buried itself in a hard pine board I was hooked.

My bullets came in today. Already loaded up a few to try. The brass I have is close to 25 years old , so ? And its Federal. And I am not sure how many times I've loaded it ? I started with light loads , so see what happens ? Only problem is I have to wait till next week to get to the range.

I wasn't even looking for a DW. But no way I could pass it up. Just a beautiful gun.

TboneI think the weak case wall stuff came from the early 83 and shortly after.
