There were two versions in that serial number range.

Model One-and-a-Half, 2nd Issue. Round butt. Round ribbed barrel.
Serial numbers ran from 26301 in 1868 to 127100 in 1875.

Model Number Two. Square butt. Octagon barrel.
Serial numbers ran from 1 in 1861 to 77155 in 1874

Dixie Gun Works occasionally has .32 rimfire ammo made in Brazil.

ETA: Doesn't look like they have any.

They do have these, though:
