    no,32 S&W Long is a centerfire cartridge.Not much power.I just cant see why anyone would chamber a rifle in that caliber.

    Falling Block Works of Troy (I think) MI was a company that manufactured several different sizes of single shot falling block actions for custom rifles in the 70's or 80's I had one of their catalogs but never bought an action. A shame.
    If you are interested in getting rid of the rifle, please email me
