About the Cartridge

This cartridge was the result of a joint project between Harrington & Richardson and Federal Cartridge Company. It was introduced in 1984 for the five-shot H&R Model 504, 532 and 586 revolvers. The cartridge is simply the older 32 Smith & Wesson Long case lengthened by 0.155 inch. Therefore, any 32 Magnum revolver will also accept and fire both the .32 S&W and the .32S&W Long cartridges. The .32 H&R Magnum cartridge performance level is well above that of any other 32-caliber handgun cartridge currently available.

I am not sure this gun really exists in 32 H&R mag. I can't find any information other than ADC s webpage If it does I would like to know how to find it. --Hi Canoeal - I did a little digging into this myself. We tend to rely a lot on the manufacturers and trade publications for most of our information posted here. So what I have found is this; 'Blue Book of Gun Values' and 'Gun Traders Guide' list the gun as having a chambering in .32 H&R Mag - limited availability, while the ADC website itself says there is a .32 Mag chambering. Curiously the 'Standard Catalog of Firearms' lists a chambering in .32 Auto. But, it seems that a remark I found posted on a gun forum may explain it all... -The ".32 magnum" that American Derringer refers to was a proprietary automatic pistol cartridge that was not produced beyond prototype stage. It was not .32 H&R magnum- the H&R magnum was not thought of when this gun was designed. - I should probably pull this entry as we do not incorporate prototype cartridges. -Admin
