I think my custom 32-20 is one of THE most fun guns I have to shoot! I bet that would be great with a bisley hammer modified to fit the grip frame and a bunch of 32-20 cases stuffed with H110.

That's a neat one RG.......

There are at least two or three people (maybe more) who doubt that seller's story... :-)))

.32-30 is a favorite of mine as well

...oh yes, as discussing with Chad, and knowing that Ruger actually did their
32-20/32 H&R convertibles through Buckeye, (Johns Sporting goods, Canton, Ohio) in late 1988 for 1989 issue, this gun above was WAY too soon,(1974?)as well as the "custom" feature of the 'non fluted' cylinder, ala Super Blackhawk,and doing on the 30 carbine framed gun, the barrel is longer too ( 7 1/2 in) still interesting and a neat concept.............. 8) :roll: :wink:

Looks to me like a great improvement on a 30 carbine. I like it!
