A couple of H&R top break revolvers, worth fixing?
This forum is amazing! So much excellent information available! Thanks!
I have a couple of H&R top breaks that I'd like some help with. I believe both at them are 38 s&w. The blued one(my favorite) is in somewhat working condition. The double action works well but the hammer will not stayed cocked in single action. It's got a black plastic grip on the right side with a homemade looking wood grip on the left. The markings on the top say:
Harrington & Richardson Co
Worchester, Mass U.S.A.
and the side says:
38 S&W CTGE
Serial number is 361 257
The other revolver is nickle plated and the finish is in great shape. Unfortunately, the hammer will not snap forward in double action, nor will the hammer stay cocked. The top of it says:
Harrington & Richardson Co.
Worchester, Mass U.S.A. PAT'D OCT 4 '87
No markings on the side. Serial number is only stamped under the grip: 8225.
I guess my question, other than trying to identify these guns and their age, is whether I should try to get them repaired. Would it be worth it? I suppose I could try my hand at building some displays if not.
Thanks for any help!
