    We need pictures of the gun overall and closeup of markings. To help everyone, I suggest cropping pictures and reducing pixel count.

    H&A was a major manufacturer; and most of their guns are of reasonable quality, some are excellent. So value varies widely. They also made the Merwin & Hulbert revolvers.

    with this limited description i really can't tell you anything about this revolver except it was made before 1917. that is generally accepted as the year H&A went out of business. as to firing it DON"T.

    Ah, heck, Bill. When I saw you had replied, I thought for sure you would know the exact model, when it was made, and the name of the guy who put it together. I am disappointed. ;)
