    I have 2 boxes of late production 32 Long Colt. Remington in the bright yellow and green box, about 1990 is the best guess Remington could give me based on the production codes on the end flap. I haunted yard sales and gun shows, pawn shops and accumulated several hundred rounds of the Long Colt and Winchester still cataloged the short Colt and offered SC virgin Winchester cases thru Midway. I'm well stocked and I got a good stock of 90 gr. heel style bullets from an old gent that absolutely refused to loan or sell me the mold.

I think I got $150 for the last full box that I sold recently.
    ... hangs head in shame ......

    I had it professionally cleaned and reconditioned. Not sure if that was "within an inch of its life" though. The local range has just assured me they've found the right ammunition; I'll confirm that this week.

    Here is mine:

    I came to ask a very similar question:

    If a Colt says "32 Police Ctg" that means it takes 32 S&W Long, correct?

    Also in the Colt world, "32 Police Ctg" and "32 New Police" are one and the same?

    E: very nice looking gun

    The simplest test that will tell whether a gun is chambered for .32 Colt or .32 S&W is to look inside the chambers. If it’s bored straight through without any shoulder it is .32 Colt. I collect these little revolvers and always check the cylinders first thing so as to avoid getting saddled with .32 Colt. The ammo is just too expensive. Been there, done that.
