This cartridge should not be confused with the 32 W.S.L. Winchester, 32-40 Winchester
and the 32 Winchester Special; those are all different from themselves and the 32-20 W.C.F.
The 32-20 Winchester or 32-20 WCF (for Winchester Center Fire) or also called just
plain 32 Winchester, was introduced in 1882 as a "Black Powder" cartridge for the
Model 73 Lever-Action Rifle.
It was not long after the introduction that most other manufacturers were making rifles and
pistols for the caliber as it was very popular as a mid-power cartridge for the day for small to
mid-size game out to 150 yards, but under-powered for deer size game.
The most popular firearm this caliber was chambered in, was the Colt "Police Positive" Pistol.
