    It's an Harrington & Richardson "catalogue brand name/hardware store" revolver. It's a 7 shot .22 rimfire that can handle shorts or longs and maybe standard velocity long rifle cartridges. The "VICTOR" brand line was comprised of three frame size revolvers - this is the small frame derived from the H&R Young America model. Victors, generally, were made with round barrels and unfluted cylinders - whereas the "standard" H&R analogues had octagonal barrels and fluted cylinders. Bill Goforth will supply full info, including his estimation of dates of manufacture.

    for now the exact date of the victor line of solid frame revolvers will just have to be guessed at. the dates listed below are a guess as no one knows for sure just when the were sold. i based these dates on the date of the iver johnson's arms & cycle works brand name revolver (u.s. revolver co.), for which there are factory records (1910 -1935) and the fact that what one company did the other was sure to follow and or vice versa.

    VICTOR (BRAND NAME VERSION OF AMERICAN DOUBLE ACTION AND YOUNG AMERICA DOUBLE ACTION SERIES)--------1913-1936
