It's hard to tell exactly what you have from the info that you provided.We have a Harrington & Richardson top break 32 revolver 6 shot, patent dated April 7, 1898. Mass. USA. Trying to get an idea of how old this gun may be. Thanks.
Welcome to TFF; you have an antique:Speaking about age? Mine only has the manufacture and location on top of barrel with no patent or dates, no markinging on side of barrel...
What makes it strange is that of all the reading I've been doing,,,No One has discussed anything about a "Maual Eject" , all I've seen has been auto eject.
Can't look under the cylinder for a serial number because of the manual eject shaft. Cylinder does'nt unscrew like a "auto".
My father had this gun and I know that it hasn't been fired for over 40 years, at least. Came with a box of bullets that were marked " 32 S&W black powder"
I've fired it with those, but only about 1 in every 4 or 5 would fire.
Do I have something odd, with this manual eject???
Try one of the larger online gun auctions. U.S. federal regulations classify guns made before 1899 as antiques, and they can be shipped by ordinary mail to most states..
I'm not realy a collector. Never have been a seller. Any sugestions best place to "unload" something this old?
