    Default Harrington & Richardson Revolvers - what do you own?

    I'm dedicated, for what ever perverse reason, to collecting H&R Revolvers, and other H&R firearms. I'd really appreciate hearing comments, stories, observations, facts, questions, BS, etc. concerning H&R revolvers. If you have any old H&Rs and don't know what the hell you have, post a description and maybe we can figure out what it is you have.

    I have one! I really don't know much about it except it belonged to my dad. Its a nine shot and it has "Sidekick" stamped on the barrel. It's been around for as long as I can remember, and I'm a grandfather. It laid around for about 30 years, but I cleaned it and bought some new ammo and shot about 36 round through it about a month ago. It shot fine, although compared to the Ruger GP 100 and various S/W's I was shooting that day (these guns belonged to someone else) it really felt like an older weapon. The gun is in surprisingly good shape for its age. I have very little gun experience, but that is about to change. I just got my CCW permit and bought a new Ruger GP 100 and plan on adding to my collection soon.

    MDL,
    That's a Model 929. The grips are what they called "STAG" colored. The ejector rod with the steel sleeve around it dates it to right around 1957. The serial number, stamped on the bottom of the butt strap, should start with the letter S, T or U (let me know what it is and we can determine the year). The crane lock up on that one should be a spring loaded plunger that comes down from the top of the frame and there should be a small screw up there. The firing pin should be attached to the nose of the hammer (which is jeweled or machine turned, only done for a few years in the late '50's and early '60's - too costly).
    The Model 929 was H&R's FIRST swing out cylinder revolver, along with the Model 930 (nickel plated version), the Model 732 (.32 S&WL) and the nickel plated 733, also in .32S&WL. This model was also the first swing out cylinder revolver made by any of the "Blue Collar" gun manufacturers. It was very well accepted in the market and lasted in production, in two variations (second var. had a transfer bar safety system and frame mounted firing pin), until H&R went out of business in 1986. Model 929 was available in 2 1/2", 4" and 6" barrel lengths
    It is a strong gun, with a coil wound main spring, and is capable of handling any .22 lr factory round made today (assuming it is in safe condition to fire.) I hope you find this info interesting and thanks for the opportunity to share some of my info.

    32,

    Well you sure know your H&R's that describes my gun right down to the last detail. The serial number begins with T.

    Walter,
    There ya go, you're on your way! Do you have the 732 with the 2 1/2" barrel? Sturdy little gun. 622 is a decent field/utility gun, only draw back is popping out the cylinder to reload. Does the cylinder on your 622 have the manual "ALL IN ONE" ejector system? :-B-:

    The 622 has a two part cylinder that is removed and can be hit in front end and all cases pop out. The 732 is realy a 733 (brushed crome) with the 2 1/2 inch barrel.

    Thanks Baldy, it is remarkable shape considering the treatment it received. It was hidden away in an attic for MANY years with no protection. There was only a very light bit of surface rust on the lower part of the handle. I removed most of it with a very light buffing with a scotch brite pad. I'll probably keep and let my grandchildren shoot it when they get old enough.
