Re: H&R Handy Gun 32-20 8" Rifled Barrel
bullfever, in addition to a loop on the trigger guard, the barrel assembly on the one shown in montezuma's link looks more "normal" than yours, with a straight tapered barrel and a more streamlined forend. The rear sight is also different. Are you sure yours doesn't have a skillfully sleeved shotgun barrel? Is your forend attached with a screw? Show us a closeup of barrel breech face and extractor.
