The Remington Model 32 was a hard-luck firearm. To be an over or under rifle in the year 1931, it was to be noticeable as strange, to contain split barrels was actually strange, and to be costly in the third year of the Great Depression was more or less fatal. This rifle model was made in very small quantities from 1941 to 1947, when it was discarded. Probably only 5100 guns were manufactured during this period.
