Age of H&R mod. 999 Sportsman
Hi, I have a later model H&R mod.999 Sportsman, I'm thinking it was made around 1983 or 1984 but I'm not sure. The serial number is BA000154 Does anyone know for sure when it was made? Also the rear sight appears to be the standard factory one except instead of the usual adjustment screws it appears to have roll pins. I know these screws are prone to falling out but I've never seen another mod 999 with a rear sight that didn't have screws. I bought this gun at an estate sale from a friend who I know bought the gun new years ago and it's in mint condition. He never mentioned having a gunsmith mess with the rear sight but I suppose that he could have. Has anybody ever seen a 999 with a factory rear sight like this? Thanks.
