Hello, I'm new to the forum. I need help to ID a revolver that I inherited from my father. I believe it's a H&R from the target logo on the grip.
The revolver is a short 38 caliber, 5 shot, double action, top break and auto-eject model. The grip appears to be the larger target style, not sure it's original to this model though.
If anyone can tell me what year and model this is, I would appreciate it greatly.
The serial # is 187117 if that is helpful.

I forgot to mention that it has a 4 inch barrel and no manufacturer name or caliber markings.
I saw another thread that Bill Goforth responded to. From his post, this is looking to be a pre-1905.

Thanks for the response. This one's hard to pin down. It was originally nickel plated. My dad took the finish off and was going to have it re-plated by some people he used to work for. He said that he got it at a yard sale for cheap.
Now my dad is gone and I was going to look into restoring it, but I think it's too far gone. I'll probably put some grips on it that I'm bidding for on ebay, blue it and put it in a display case.
