    Just picked up this Harrington and Richardson .32 caliber. It functions well and retains about 95% of the original finish.

    The hammerless was used by Ilsa Lund in Casablanca. I have not shot it yet, but I plan to.

    Conman, no it is not the actual gun used in the movie, but it is the same model. Igrid Bergman pointed her H&R at Rick, trying to get the letters of transit from him. Rick stepped in closer to her so she would have an easier shot. Classic.

    WHSmithIV, the gun was part of a lot purchase. I went to a neighbors house (a Korean War Veteran) to help him cut down some trees overhanging his cabin. We live in a rural area of Pennsylvania. He was low on food and I wanted to give him some money but he wouldn't take it. After the work was done he showed me his gun collection, nice WWI K98 and matching bayonet with scabbard, a 1903 Springfield, German Luger etc. Then he showed me a box of guns and asked if I wanted them. I gave him 200.00 for the lot. 10 guns plus a Colt 1911 Frame and Slide. So to answer your question: $20.00 for the H&R.
