Model 32 Shotgun

Post by aardq » Sun Feb 10, 2019 7:50 am

Does anyone know if the model 32 was ever made in a 20 gauge? My understanding is that this shotgun was too expensive to make a profit on, and that the patents were sold to Krieghoff, who has made their (very expensive) version of the Model 32 for many decades now. True or false?
Thank you,
Daniel

The Model 32 was only ever offered by Remington Arms Co., Inc. in 12-gauge --

but many multi-gauge Skeet sets have been made outside the factory. Here is a page from the 1961 Simmons catalog --

How do I determine the date of manufacture of my Model 32?

On the block between the barrels, under the forearm, the choke markings are on one side and usually a 2 letter date code on the other. I have seen the date code in other locations on Model 32 barrels.
