    these thing scream saturday night special . though i never fired a 32 caliber i did fire the 22 caliber model . it was old and tired at the time and it was loose as a goose. not sure how well they would hold up to continued use. by the way the gun was offered to me for 25 bucks and i passed on it. i already have enough paper weights and since it's not heavy enough to use as an anchor i had to pass..... you'd be better off with a sling shot

    Remember the phrase, "know when to say when". This is that kind of situation. Knowing when to throw it in the trash. I guess your friend likes the thought of possibly loosing a finger or scaring his face? There are all sorts of reasons why gun companies come and go but one of those reasons is that they put out crap. He does not know the history of this gun, he does not know the maintenance that went into the gun, he does not even know if the gun works. Pretty scary to me. Also better darn well make sure is a .32 long. Good thing is a .32 long wont fit in a .32 short gun, you can't close the action if the headspacing is correct. Oh BTW, it is the headspacing correct.:rolleyes:;)

    Sounds like a good candidate for a buy back program.

    Do a Mythbusters rig. You know, handgun clamp and either a remote controlled motor or a string pull. If it explodes, then you are safe, if it doesn't explode, then it's all good.
