WTB: 32 Target Pistol

Post by zanemoseley on Wed Sep 26, 2018 11:58 am

I'm already getting the pre-Winter blues and am thinking of picking up a project to keep me busy. Loading and testing 32 S&W should keep me busy. So I'm looking for something reliable, accurate and affordable lol. It doesn't have to be super new, I've been looking at older Walther GSP's but am open to options. I'm also open to 32 ACP but my budget probably won't allow it. I'm LH/med but I can always get new grips. In addition to cash I have a top of the line Arsenal brand AK-47 I'm thinking of trading/selling, its their top of the line forged receiver not stamped steel, I also have 10 magazines and some ammo. Let me know what ya got.

There is a neat one on GB. Neat being a very flexible word. I think this would be fun to own. Just have to figure out how to put a micro on there. Very Happy Hey, it's 32S&W and a project. Looks accurate.

As I neared the end of my supply of H&N bullets, I came very close to selling mine. Sure glad I didn't as I've now found a mold that produces a bullet that gives acceptable accuracy at 50 yards. 

The 32 can be very rewarding but it is indeed a project to get it shooting well at the long line. Good luck and have fun.

Jim, which mold are you using? I cast but have heard 32 S&W can be tough with cast bullets.

Check at mjgunshop.com and look under used guns. There is a Benelli listed there with 2 grips for $800 (i think)

I just stopped in and looked at that Benelli. The grips that are not on the gun would be the ones to use. The pistol looks nice. Its got use marks as shown in the pics. Could use a cleaning. not bad for the money. If it shoots like a GSP you'd be all set. Rolling Eyes

Hi, I have a .32 long with a Dave Wilson barrel and have spare Left hand grips. It is an older model HP and is used but shoots awesome at 50 yards with David's barrel....

If it’s like the Dave Wilson Barrels I have, it is a tighter chamber, and will shoot excellent with standard Speer Plinkers bullets which costs 7c ea.

Greetings,

"HP" is Pardini-speak for the "full bore" calibers. Used to be 32 S&W Long WadCutter; but, now the 32ACP is added to the description.

There are at least four design changes on the Pardini HP barrels. Early ones had a flange with an indexing pin. These were designed to be press fit assembled into the shroud, which was steel.

The latest HP models, including the HP-New, are designed such that the barrel is "glued" in place with a bonding agent. There is no flange nor indexing pin. Early models had a steel shroud while the current offering is anodized Aluminum.

Be aware that parts for the older Pardini's are hard to come by. Pardini Italy does not support the older models. Fortunately, a lot of newer parts will fit into the older guns.

Cheers,

Dave
