It probably isn't stamped anywhere on the gun. If you know the manufacturer and model, there may be a serial number. If there is a serial, there may be records which will give an approximate date of manufacture.
32 caliber... "32 W.S." is the designation for the 32 caliber Winchester Special cartridge.
Would need model to answer
.32 caliber. In a semi auto handgun, probably .32 ACP
9mm is roughly .35 caliber, .32 caliber is slightly smaller, 3 hundredths of an inch smaller, in diameter.
Call S&W and they will tell you.

Virtually impossible to answer with just a patent date.
32 caliber is a little smaller then the 38 caliber
32 short, 32 long, 32 ACP
No such caliber as .32 Special. Use the caliber of ammo marked on the gun.
There are several DIFFERENT .32 caliber cartridges. The .32 bullet is smaller in diameter than a .380. SOME .32 cartridges are longer, and have more power, such as the .327 magnum. And some .32 pistols are smaller than some .380 pistols, and vice versa. The caliber has nothing to do with the size of the gun.
The .22 caliber bullet is ABOUT .22 inches wide. A .32 bullet is about .32 inches wide. The bullet will also be heavier due to size.
If you mean a .40 caliber bullet in a .32 caliber gun- no. The bullet would be 8 thousandths of inch too large to fit in the gun. Caliber refers to the diameter of the bullet, so a .40 caliber bullet is ABOUT .40 inches across, and a .32 bullet ABOUT .32 inches across.
I have a octagonal barrel .32 caliber Remington Patent date May 3, 1864 - What would it be worth?
.25 ACP, as others have said. At first I was thinking that it may have been .32 caliber, but the I realized that .32 is really a 7.65mm
The gun is chambered for the 32 caliber Winchester center fire cartridge. Also known as the 32-20.
There was a maket for it.
Based in N.C. Kimel Industries Model 5000 .32 caliber listed as .32cal SW
if a New Service model made about 1920
Actually, most of the J or I framed revolvers in .32 caliber are SIX shot. The .38 caliber versions are 5 shot.
Fairly scarce pistol, most were in .32 caliber. Depending on condition, $650-$850. Likely a model 1907. (Patent dates will always be earlier than date of manufacture or Model date)
.40 S&W cartridge, bullet diameter = .401" .380 ACP cartridge, bullet diameter = .355-.356" .32 ACP cartridge, bullet diameter = .311 - .312"
They still make a .32 caliber cartridge.
Depends entirely on which .32 caliber gun. A small .32 Auto might have an effective range of 25 yards, a long barreled 32-20 revolver 80 yards, and a .32 Winchester rifle 200 yards.
