Re: A couple of H&R top break revolvers, worth fixing?
The problem is that many of the folks who post here would have to have guns like that fixed by a gunsmith, and professional gunsmiths are not into "labor of love" or "proving" they can do it. They have this strange fascination for eating regularly, which means making money and believe me those old guns don't put food on the table.
I used to try and repair as many as I could and just found it impossible to do at any kind of reasonable cost. Then, to make matters worse, I fixed several and charged what I thought was a very low rate, only to have the customer inform me that the gun wasn't worth it (which I had tried to tell him in the first place) and that I could insert it in a dark place. I finally got smart and just told customers they were not repairable; not a lie - they were not economically repairable by me.
