Default 9 shot .22 revolvers

What are people's experienced with 9 shot .22 revolvers? I am thinking about getting one because they look like a lot of fun to shoot but I am interested in your opinions of best models, prices, and quality

First, welcome to the forum. When you get a minute, drop by the intro thread, say howdy, and tell us a bit about yourself.

The 9 shooters are a heck of a lot of fun. Only drawback- price on good quality modern 22 revolver is a heartbreaker. Any of the top names will do good for you- partial to S&W myself, but they are not the only ones.

Still have the H&R Target Special top break that Mom gave Dad back before WW 2, and it is still plinking away.

I've got a Taurus 92 small frame. Really like the gun. Bought it used for right around $300. Nice sights and it has been flawless. My 11 year old shoots it better than the Colt/Walther 1911 that I also have. Mainly because of the better sights.

With double action it has a long heavy trigger pull. In single action, it is almost too light.

Hecto,
Are you after a new revolver, or would you be interested in brands no longer in business?

I have a iver johnson mod 66 trailsman 8shot revolver that i purchased off gunbroker.com for 50bucks a year or so back...it shoots & functions great,wish i could find a few more like it for the same price

as for the newer 22lr revolvers,i cant see paying over 200bucks for any 22lr revolver,but thats just my opinion...to each his own

good luck with your handgun purchase's.

Thanks for the responses already I would be open to a used gun but I think it might be a good idea for me to look into a regular six shot weapon as there are so many of those. Unfortunately money doesn't grow on trees...

My first gun purchase when I turned 21 was a Harrington and Richardson 9 shot revolver. It broke open like a Webley. Wish I still had it. Reliable and quite accurate.

Since you are not against out of production models, you just can't beat the H&R Sportsman.
9 shot, break top.
Made from the 30's to the 90's.
An iconic handgun.
Most are great shooters.
You can still pick them up for a reasonable price.
But, the really nice examples are increasing in value rapidly
I have several, from 1939 - 1980, and love them all!!

1939-1940 Model 196 Eureka Sportsman


1939 Model 777 Ultra Sportsman


1955 Model 999 Sportsman
1 blue, 1 chrome




Set of 4, 1980 Model 999 Sportsman
2 4" models.
2 6" models
All wearing Jay Scott aftermarket grips



A couple more pics of Sportsman with Jay Scott grips.

Pair of 1980 Model 999 4"

my opinion may be a bit biased because i love H&R/NEF firearms, but they really are great affordable, durable guns. if you keep your eyes open on the auction sites you can get a nice 9 shot revolver for easily less than $200.

this is my New England R92 ultra, which was the same as the H&R 904.
nice smooth trigger, good sights, great accuracy. the gun shoots better than i do.


there are a couple dozen different models that they put out & almost each one has a different look & barrel than the others, so there should be no shortage of style choices once you start lookin

I was told by a friend of my fathers that S&W and Taurus were good ones to look at. I think the only reason i got the Taurus was that it was a little cheaper in price than the S&W.
