Looking for information on the following H&R Large Frame has “The American” stamped on the top side of the gun frame and “Double Action” on the lower side of gun frame. No caliber stamp on the left side of octagon 2-inch barrel. I do not see any blued-on trigger guard.
  1. No caliber on left side stamped – Does the lack of that make it a First Model (Black Powder only) ?
  2. Because of the octagon barrel but no visual blued trigger guard does that look more like a Fourth Variation – and possibly manufactured between 1898 & 1904.
  3. No visible marking on revolver with exception of “The American – Double Action” grips on gun are hard black Bakelite, hard rubber or another material. The bottom of the grip has a band with four lines raising up to form a filled-in circle. The fifth line up and encircles the grip screw hole. From the top of grip is several scroll lines descending and encompasses an arrow pointing up with a triangle on the bottom of shaft and an orb below that.

Respectfully,
Peter D. Holt
