    Hi, First post here due to my first H&R Sportsman. From what I can gather on the internet, Mr. Goforth is THE expert on these fine pieces. Sir, can you fill me in on my $275, S/N D21565 22 LONG RIFLE CTG. "SPORTSMAN"

    Thank you,
    Ed F

    (EDIT) I think I found some details using "search" ....imagine that! Am I correct in assuming it is a model 999, Second Variation, of 1933 vintage?

    SPORTSMAN DOUBLE ACTION MODEL 99 TOP BREAK-------- 1932-1952
    •Large frame double action top break revolver; Caliber 22 rimfire long & long rifle
    •Cylinder capacity 9 rounds
    •Safety rim cylinder
    •Blue finish only
    •Barrel length 6 inches (ribbed)
    •Automatic cylinder stop
    •Sights: rear adjustable for windage only
    •Three different front sights used, full Blade, Partridge type & Partridge type pinned to barrel top rib, all non-adjustable; (Second Variation adjustable)
    •Finger rest trigger guard
    •One piece oversized checkered Walnut grips (birds head grip frame shape, Rice frame)
    •Frame mounted firing pin
    •Hammer face is flat
    •Cylinder release is long pivoting lever on right side of frame (there are two different version of this)
    •Early production until about 1933 the letter code “D” was used to denote double action

    Second Variation; adjustable front sight------1933 (after 4-18-1933)
