I have recently inharited some guns from my father. i have managed to identify all but 2 of the revolvers.

the easy one is a H&R Top Break, 6 shot, auto eject revolver. it has no cal markings on it at all. The top of the barrel says
"HARRINGTON & RICHARDSON ARMS COMPANY
WORCHESTER, MASS.U.S.A. PAT'D OCT.4.87.DEC.25.88."
the only serial number i can find is 2259 under the pistol grips and the end of the breach lever.


the second one is a 7 shot revolver i think .22. i can find no manufacturer markings on it at all except for the serial number 17453 under the pistol grips and on the cylander.


i would apreciate any information i can get... ok the pics didnt show they are also in my albums

The pictures aren't showing so it's difficult to know anything about the ?.22..

The H&R top break will probably be a .32 S&W or a .38 S&W cartridge - probably for black powder cartridges.

Welcome to TFF.

Your 2nd gun looks like a Smith & Wesson Model No. 1, Second Issue in abused condition with the cylinder installed backwards.

(I'm not certain that's possible, but try reversing it)

Found it:

It's the Second Model Manhattan or American Standard Tool copy, distinguished by an extra set of cylinder notches to allow stopping of the cylinder between rounds.

And some are unmarked.
