    I have an H&R that I haven't seen anyone else describe or value. Mine is a .38S&W with manual ejector. The name on the top of the barrel is Harrington & Richardson, Worcester, Mass. U.S.A. The serial is stamped under the grip panel 49XX. There is no other marking. Condition is very good except for a missing pin in front of the cylinder. Not sure of the pin's function.

    You probably need to start a new thread, not tack it on to a five year old one. PLUS you need to read this:

    Please describe the item in as much detail as possible.

    Detail does not mean "in good shape" ,describe how the wood is, how much blueing (% of original finish left) there is etc., and anything else you see that may be helpful.

    Tell us all marking, words, and letters anywhere on the gun.

    PICTURES are required. Clear, sharp pictures....full length, both left and right sides, as well as closeups of any unusual features, engraving, etc.
    Here's How: http://www.thefirearmsforum.com/showthread.php?t=19430

    Example:

    If you have an old gun and the markings on it are E over LG then the gun was made in Belgium.

    You may try doing a SEARCH and find your gun value. If not, START A NEW THREAD instead of bringing up an old post that has already been answered. THE OLD POST MAY BE IGNORED..

    Our entire range of staff, are more than happy to assist you, as well as many of our membership in general, in order to try and answer your questions.

    Our experts work hard to give you an accurate value on your firearm so give them the info they need.

    Serial numbers mean virtually nothing on pre-1940 H&R guns.

    We will need pictures to ID the gun first. We will need the caliber and how many cartridges it holds. Then we will need an exact translation of the roll stamp word for word, exactly as it is stamped.
