I recently purchased a H&R MK II CAL .32 S&W, break top, 6 shot revolver. I was wonder if anyone can tell me what the date of manufacture, history, historic value, or any other information on this piece. I am also wondering if it will take standard .32 S&W rounds. I have read several post on here that some .32's will only take black powder cartridges. Ok now for the specifics on this piece: It has "Harrington & Richardson Arms Co. Worcestoer, Mass USA" stamped on the top of the barrel. Behind that, on top of the cylinder housing in front of teh rear sight is the "MK-II" stamp. On the front of the grip is the serial number "P M.P. 245XX". On the back of the cylinder and on the extractor is stamped "630" On the left side of the barrel just in front of the cylinder is stamped ".32 S&W CTGE". I'm thinking that this is just a cal. .32 cartridge designation. It has a blued steel finish with hard rubber or plastic grips.
