You recently purchased a JC Stevens in a 25 rimfire and another one in a 32 long rimfire Do you know where you can get ammunition for them?

.32 Long Rimfire ammunition is currently available from Old Western Scrounger, a division of Navy Arms. This is new-manufactured ammunition, produced on contract in Brazil by CBC. This is the only source of useable .32 Rimfire and it isn't cheap. This ammunition works well in the Stevens "Favorite" rifle and should work in any other firearm chambered for it. The .32 Short Rimfire is not available. Dixie Gun Works sells adapters to allow use of rifles and pistols in .32 Short and Extra Long Rimfire by using a .22 "acorn" blank as a primer. The Short adapters can be used in rifles chambered for the .32 Long, but the Extra Long adapters cannot. The .25 Rimfire hasn't been loaded since 1941 and all remaining stocks are gone. It is completely un-obtainable except for collector ammunition that is far too expensive and probably too old to shoot.
