I got a phone call from a friend of mine who was out scouting around the LGSs. One in particular was loading half dozen older revolvers in their display cases. I ran into an H&R Model 929. 22 CAL, with a 9 round cylinder, a 1 3/4” inch barrel. Total length is 6 1/4”. Marked H&R INC WORC MASS USA. She was in great shape. He wanted $200. I offered $150. He took it.
Left side looks good minor wear. It has a hammer mounted firing pin, blued finish, with a swing out cylinder. The sights are fixed and it has checkered grips, with little wear.
The cylinder and interior are in great shape.
The blast shield looks like she’s had a few rounds put through her.
H&R manufactured these from 1956-1986. I believe they were called the Sidekick. They came out with a second series of these from 1996-1999 except the grips were brown.
The Serial Number is AL367XX. Any idea when it was manufactured? My current information says AL is 1973.
