    Have you tried Taylorís in Winchester, VA? They are one of the larger Uberti importers and dealers.

    I have two 32-20 rifles...An original 1885 LowWall and a Remington Hepburn. Both are extremely accurate rifles. But at 200 yds with any kind of wind they are a real challenge.

    Here are stories I wrote for Single Shot Exchange on both of them:

    I, too like (the idea) of another 32-20, but would want a fast twist barrel, like 1:10 so as to be able to shoot
    the heavier bullets at out to 200yds. The 32-20CPA comes to mind- its actually a 32 cal (as in 32-40) bore so as to be able to
    use that greater choice of bullets in the 200 gr area. This version has some popularity/and great results by some in Schuetzen.
    Unfortunately, the Uberti 32-20s have the much slower twist .

    Hi Arnie..........Good the hear from you ! and Happy New Year to Come !!!! 2018 is the year of the Low Wall 32-20!!! My Thoughts on the Barrel / Rifle
    is having it in hand !!! If the total Quality for the dollar is there It won't be bad to reline of rebarrel to a faster twist!!! If I could find a "Real" Low Wall
    that was clean for the price I could jump right in with a rebarrel! Still having it is more than 1/2 the battle ...... I have to say They Sure Look Really Nice!

    Yep, can't hit anything past 100 yds. with a slow twist barrel and 115 gr. bullets. But I guess nobody told this young gal shooting an original Model 1894 Marlin in .32-20 with a 1:22" twist and 115 gr. cast bullets. And by the way, this was the first time she'd fired anything but a little .22 plinker rifle! It was great fun to sit there and watch her hit time after time! 400 yds. with just the plain old Rocky Mountain barrel sight!!! Not even fancy globe and tang sights!

    And another slow twist original 1894 Marlin in .32-20! This was offhand at I believe 500 yds.?

    The cadet martini 310 round is a ringer for 32/20,has a 1 in 22 twist, and the sights are graduated to 600 yds.....so its obvious the brit gunmakers didnt know didly,and hadnt read a bunch of forums telling em they couldnt do it.

    Well marlinman, this is the 21st century filled with internet experts who undoubtedly know more and have more experience than anyone, ever. It rather amazes me of all the things that were accomplished in times past that, since the advent of the internet, have become impossible. Sort of like today's armor plated whitetails.

    I won't begin to mention what we used to do with the lowly 22LR at 400 yards. Obviously we couldn't do it today.

    Yes, nothing I like better than taking one of my .22's and shooting targets at 400 yds! 400 yds. with a .22 is much like shooting twice that with a CF old cartridge. And it's great practice for those of us who can't get to a 1,000 yd. range as often as we'd like to!
    People today think guns have to have fast twist rates, and can't drop more than a few feet in 500 yds. to be viable. The idea of a 60 ft. arc on an old bullet traveling 1350 fps seems impossible. It's like they believe the bullets just stop traveling at about 400 yds. and drop from the sky!
    And when I think I'm shooting good, some guy has to outshoot me backwards, with a mirror!

    I tried to find a Schutzen uberti for a while and gave up. It seems they dont import them. There was a 32-40 on gun broker 6 months ago. I was going to bid on it but forgot. It brought a premium. Only one I have seen for sale.

    When I used to go to Quigley, after the days match was over and the wind went down we would shoot our .22's at target #6 which was 350 yds. After tiring of that we would go to target #5 at 425yds. Never get tired of hearing the plink several seconds after the shot. Yes it can still be done in the days of the internet.

    That's the only drawback to the .22LR......hearing the plink that far away! But it does put a smile on your face when you can hear it!
