Default Remington Model 32

Is their a definitive book on Remington Model 32’s ? Or on them and the Krieghoff version combined ?

And Remington historians were no help when I asked for confirmation of a unique 3200 about 20 years ago. I suspect whatever records they may have had are now long gone

I’ve got a friend in the “Remington Collectors Society” or whatever they go by and he’s been going to Ilion and getting into the records etc and he’s been telling me about seeing all the stuff that lead up to the Model 3200 . I think he’s been up three times in the last couple years .

The original poster asked about Model 32s.

I was thinking the same thing , for some reason people think they are the same gun. Just last week a member of my gun club was saying they are the same gun just newer.

They are not the same gun. The 3200 is built on the 32 design for the most part but there are updates and slight modifications to the 32.

Several founding members of the Old Pats Society are former Remington employees, most of whom were in management, and are also long-time PGCA members.

Not the same design, and the changes, updates, and modifications are in no way slight or minor. There is not one part of a 32 that is interchangeable with a 3200 except maybe the front sight bead. The locking mechanism of these two guns are similar in outside appearance, as similar as the locking mechanisms of the Model 24 Winchester and the Purdey.

Who the hell said a 32 and 3200 are the same ? He said he asked Remlin about a 3200 and I told him a friend had told me about seeing the printed pre 3200 stuff at Ilion in their files .

Nobody said they are the same. Mr. Martin said someone at his club suggested the 3200 is the same gun, just newer, and we know this is incorrect.
