Re: H&R Sportsman 22 LR
I am new to threads and TFF. My daughter says I am a digital dinosaur.
My wife's Uncle Harry was "frugal." When he passed in 2010 a piece was found under his bed. Zip case. H&R Sportsman M8XXX-x on grip frontstrap. XXX matches cylinder stamp. It came to me on "a long term loan." I found four powder grains in the barrel, and faint smoke on the front of one cylinder bore. I reckon Uncle Harry lived up to his rep, even in 1952. He fired it once. It worked. He zipped it up and there it lay. To my knowledge no 22 rounds were found in the house! The piece is 90%+ and will go to the range soon. Thank you all for this thread. LOTS of good information.
