    Hello, just joined the forum. mainly because of this gun i purchased from a local pawn shop. On the octagon barrel it says "American Bull Bog" under the grips it has a number (9334). About 90+ percent of the nickle is still on the gun and the grips look like the haven't been handled very much. It has a 2 1/2 inch barrel and is chambered in .38 s&w. Only problem it has a broken trigger return spring. I will post pics soon. :)

    That is an H&R. Note the common word in Mtnboomer's post - "inexpensive." Those guns sold around 1900 for $3-5 and while moderately well made were never top line guns. Today there is some collector interest but the guns were made in large quantities and only examples that are in near-new condition bring much money. If that finish is the original nickel, and the gun is fully functional, yours would be worth around $150 retail to the right buyer. The caliber is .38 S&W (not .38 Special).
