    When is someone going to make a .32 Auto insert for a 7.62x39 ?

    I think that would be a fun practice device and a sure fire low noise bunny killer.;)

    If I had the reamers I'd make one myself.:thumbup:

    The same day 32 auto isn't four-times the cost of 7.62!

    Interesting..:huh: Graf & Sons 7.65x39 @ .25 ea... 32auto @ .14 ea...

    I'm glad I don't buy my .32auto where you buy yours. :paranoid: ;)

    $.25, Thats a lot for x39!
    Why not just get a 9mm or .22 insert, .32 is an odd caliber.
    Or buy the .22 WASRs that are around $200

    I'd really like a 7.62x25 insert for everything.

    I just saw an ad for adaptors to shot a .32auto in a 7.62x47r and I can remember when I had an old "Marbles" adaptor that allowed you to shoot .32auto in a 30-06.

    Why not .32auto in a 7.62x39 ? Low noise, no recoil....

    I guess the demand isn't there yet.

    Hmmm. I wonder if I could cut down one of the 7.62x47r adaptors...:paranoid:

    How do you expect either to work in a 7.62mm barrel? ;)

    I wasn't thinking about the barrel... just throwing ideas out....:)

    And neither of those cal. conversions exist... for good reason as you have pointed out.

    Found the ad and it looks like I was a little off base with this one.:paranoid:

    The .32 ACP inserts are for .308, 303 or 30-06.

    The 7.62x25 ACP inserts are for 7.62x54r, or .303
    RE:The Sportsman's Guide Cat.223452 pp44

    I'll have to pick-up a.308 cartridge and see if maybe the .308/.32auto insert could be cut down a little to fit a 7.62x39 ;)

    *My lathe has nothing to do and it's getting bored.

    For .308, 303 and 30-06 the savings are incredible on ammo. For x54r to x25 its still quite a good bit saved.

    one of the reviews for this adapter mentioned using a philips head to flip out the spent x25 cartridge... Im really interested to see what your experiences are with it - are the savings on ammo worth the time spent with single shots.
