I know the feeling.
Since it’s still a very valid cartridge, keep an eye out with your local dealers for .32-40. Who know? You may get lucky 👍🏻

Just a thought, since it is more than 50 years old and a relatively rare caliber. Can it be registered as a Curio and retained with the family due to sentimental reasons and the licence gets freed for a new rifle?

Anksthakur,
There was a discussion about it here. viewtopic.php?f=47&t=27848&hilit=Curio
Maybe Abhijit or some other senior members can help you out with the process for the same.
