The .32 S&W cartridge was introduced in 1878 for the Smith & Wesson model 1-1/2 revolver. It was originally designed as a black powder cartridge.

By today's standards, the .32 S&W is a very low-powered cartridge, compared to the .25 ACP and the .32 ACP

The .32 S&W Long cartridge is its successor.
