The first handgun i ever shot was a 9 shot .22LR revolver. I want to say it was an H&R, but that has been over thirty years.

How are they Headaches?
I've had two a .22 revolver and a pt92. The revolver was out of time out of the box had to send it back twice, sold it and bought a ruger single six. I inherited a pt92 with maybe 200 rounds through it, shoots great but the locking block broke at 500 rounds. My Beretta 92 has several thousand rounds through it with no malfunctions. Only my opinion.

Love my H&R. Bought it for $75.00 years ago. Was offered $450.00 recently. Not that many target models out there.

Got a pic handy? Does it have grips that seem really large for the size of the revolver?

[QUOTE=jamesjo;679329]


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

I understand that Jay Scott grips are no longer available. Does anyone know of a source for custom grips to fit the H&R 929 or 999?

IDVague,
What are you looking for?
The only way to find the Scott grips is watch the auctions.
Don't know of ANYONE making aftermarket grips for the Sportsman anymore.
They haven't been in production since 1986.
You still can find the original grips for sale pretty often on the auctions as well.
If you are interested, I have a couple sets of unfinished factory grips, that I would sell.
Jim

Thanks, Jim. I have a 929 with factory grips and they are in perfect condition. A friend has a 929, 922, and 999, all with good factory grips as well. We were just wondering if anybody made anything custom, but I was doubtful that they did. I've seen factory grips for sale at auction and at gun shows, but never anything else. H&R made a good reliable revolver, but the low cost pretty much takes away any market for customization. It is easier to justify a $60 set of custom grips on a $600 revolver than on one you paid less than $100 for. Thanks again.

IDVague,
Yes, you are correct.
That is why I feel so fortunate to have found all the sets of Jay Scott grips that I have.
I have 4 sets of the black pearls, 4 sets of white pearl, and 2 sets of zebrawood for the Sportsman models.
I did forget about a seller that lists some after market rosewood grips on fleabay.
He has sets that fit the 2 1/2 " barrel 929, 930, 732, 733 etc models
Also sets for the 4-6" barrel models
I have a few sets of them and they are nice grips,
I will try to post a couple pics here.
Go to the site, and type Harrington richardson grips, scroll down a little, and you should see both listings.
If you can't find them, email me back, and I will send you a link to his ads.
Jim

Here is a set of the rosewood grips on my model 642 22 mag, same grips will fit many of the 2.5" barrel model H&R's!




Here is a set on my 4" model 622 H&R.
These will fit the 929 ,632,732 etc models with 4-6" barrels.
They are nice grips, I am much happier with them than those bakelite original H&R grips.

The Smith & Wesson 617 is a super-nice plinker -- 10 shots, 10 bulls (off the sandbags, of course) . . .
