    Default H&R model 1904

    I was at the range yesterday and just looking at the bulletin board. I saw that someone was selling an H&R model 1904 .38 double action for $100. I want to buy an older revolver so that i can take it apart, fix it and make it looks pretty again. I have taking a gunsmith course online so i do not get an hands on experience. is this worth it? how hard would the parts be to find? any upgrades out there such as trigger?

Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your ...gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.

    The H&R Model 1904 is a fairly commonly found item...I have 8 of them in my H&R collection. They were in production from circa 1905 to 1942. Originally intended to replace the H&R American Double Action, they exhibited minor changes to lock work and grip frame and angle. They did not prove to be well accepted, for whatever reason, and the ADA remained in parallel production. They were chambered in 6 shot .32 S&W Long and .38 S&W. All were engineered for smokeless/Nitro powder pressures, so they will shoot modern factory loads if in SAFE condition. The one chambered in .38 will only accept the .38 S&W Cartridge. There are no known upgrades that I am aware of (not even grip panels.) This model has a pull pin cylinder - not swing out, is DA/SA, came in Nickel or Blued finish, with barrel lengths of 2", 4" and 6". Numrich Arms/GPC has spare parts for most H&R firearms. The internals are supposed to be fairly simple, however the frame is solid (no side plate) and reassembly is reputed to be fairly tricky.
    The $100 tag may be a bit high, depending upon condition. I would counter offer $75 and settle somewhere in the middle.
