my father has what i believe is a Model 929 nine shot 22 lr revolver with a 6" barrel, that belonged to my grandfather. was one of the first pistols i ever shot when i was a youngster. looks pretty close to this one.

pretty sure it shot all three. been a long time since i have even seen the pistol. when i still lived at home, we would use it with the shotshells to shoot rats in the barn without doing damage to anything else. i know it's been at least 30 years since i have even seen the pistol. not even sure exactly how old the pistol is or when my grandfather bought it, but do know he had it in at least the mid 1960's.

Mine is a great shooter. Double/Single action with a great trigger pull. In fact it blows doors on my SP101 8 shot (My SP is 14 pounds in DA mode). I prefer shooting the H&R over the SP.

It has a loading gate, but pulling the pin and removing the cylinder is much faster. The pin doubles as the ejector rod when the cylinder is removed. The loading process becomes easier the more you shoot it.

Took me two hours to clean and oil it up!! First 22 I ever cleaned, it was filthy and the cylinders are tiny. Didn't think I had anything small enough to run through them. But I managed!! Might take it to the range tomorrow you got me curious-

Remember not to dry fire a .22.

Unlike a semi-auto, you can shoot them all in a revolver: Rat-shot, shorts, CBs, etc..

I paid $120 for mine at a pawn shop 2 years ago, fired thousands of rounds through it, and no misfires.

If you look at my picture you will see mine has a button behind the trigger. This is a safety for the hammer, similar to the work of a transfer bar. Not quite as safe as a transfer bar, but it does a good job. It prevents an accidental misfire if dropped on hammer or suddenly impacted while hiking. The hammer will not fall on a live round in the chamber unless that button is pushed.

I would check yours to make sure it works before carrying a live round in the chamber. Remove the cylinder and then test it by pushing the hammer down with and without the button pushed. When the button is not pushed down you should not be able to push the hammer down towards the firing pin.

Good luck with your new weapon and let us know how she shoots.

Thank you!! It's just a family gun!! That finally ended up in my hands!! I would never carry this weapon!! But I will get it to the range soon!! If she shoots good, be a good inexpensive way to target practice!! Buddy of mine told me its made date is 1954, he researched through the serial no!! 60 year old gun that has been neglected, shows me how durable guns in generally really are!! Provided it shoots!! Lol
