North American Arms has introduced the new Guardian 32 ACP S with an Integral Locking System (ILS) safety. The part number for this gun is NAA-32GuardianS - please check with your local dealer to order this version of the Guardian 32 ACP. Introduced in 1997, the Guardian 32 ACP is one of the few guns that fits comfortably in your pocket. The combination of small size, high quality, and great stopping power have made it our most popular Guardian. Over the years, we have made many subtle improvements to the design, based in part on the many suggestions we receive from our customers. The result is an extremely high quality gun that's Convenient, Reliable, and very Effective. We stand behind it and back it up with our lifetime warranty.

The 32NAA is a new cartridge/firearm 'system' designed and developed by the partnership of North American Arms and Cor-Bon Ammunition.

In essence, the cartridge is based on a 380 case, which is necked-down to hold a smaller 32 bullet. The benefit is a remarkable gain in ballistic performance (below).

The .32NAA Guardian pistol is designed around this cartridge. This gun is almost identical to .380 ACP Guardian, different only in the chamber and the size of the bore. The cartridge is manufactured by Cor-Bon, a well-recognized industry leader in the development of high-performance ammunition.

To summarize, the load delivers in excess of 1222 f.p.s. velocity to a 60 grain proprietary bullet from Hornady. This generates 199 ft. lbs of energy, specifically from the 2.5" Guardian barrel (1453 f.p.s. & 287 ft. lbs from a 4" test barrel).

According to industry expert Ed Sanow, the 32NAA:

 

  • Produces more velocity, more energy and more stopping power than any conventional jacketed lead hollow point (JHP) 32 ACP, 380 ACP or 380 ACP (+P) with 15% less recoil (Power Factor) than the (+P),

  • Penetrates 8.3" of Gelatin after passing through four (4) layers of denim, expanding to a .55" mushroom with a retained weight of 100%,

  • Has a Fuller Index of 62% One-Shot Stops, compared to (for example) the 380 ACP Federal 90gr. Hydra-Shok (53%).


Designed for law enforcement and people serious about personal protection, we think the results speak for themselves.
