I realize that there is not a lot of collector interest in them, but I imagine most of us have owned at least one Harrington & Richardson .22 revolver. Part of the charm to the H&R product, I think, is how much they retained their old fashioned style & design elements until pretty much the very end.
My first ever handgun was a Model 950 (nickeled finish). This was in the early 1970's & I remember it had a damaged grip, so I ordered up new ones from the factory, & they sent me the most beautifully figured walnut replacements....
I've owned other H&R's over the years, & while I don't have too many left, I've become more interested in the brand recently. They have the benefit of often selling for far too little relative to their utility. If the mainspring function has gone away (in some it was capped by a plastic piece that engaged the hammer & was prone to breakage) they come really cheap.
Of the H&R's I have have kept, I've tended to tart them up with Jay Scott grips (much harder to find now than in years past), although I've always retained the original grips. The 929 pictured here is one of those guns.
I have two favorite H&R's, both target types. One's a late (serial prefix "AZ") Model 903 with the flat sided barrel, & the other is a very early Sportsman (serial #D4xxx). In representing H&R's modern era, they make for nice bookends.
