On GunBroker, item 902895769. I have already bid on it, but I know all of you would appreciate knowing there's one for sale. This will not help my chances of getting it, but what the hay good luck to all

Thanks for telling us about this .32-20.  Another friend sent me an email about it.  It just sold for $1425.  I looked at it many times these past few days and contacted the seller with a couple of questions.  I won't go into all the details, but after careful thought and serious study of the pictures, I am of the opinion that this is an early Utica barrel on a later action, stock, and forearm, most likely made at Chicopee Falls after 1946.  I did not want to pay a premium price for a barrel, even though the caliber is very rare.  I could be wrong and may regret my decision later.  So, I am still looking for a .32-20!

The other .32-20 ended yesterday.  It had different bidders, but sold for the same price, $1425!  It was a much nicer gun than the first one.  Prices are really going up on the rare or hard to find models.  I paid $125 for my .25-20.  I think people are beginning to appreciate these models for what they are.  A classic of the past!
