Well, after a few years birddogging for a H&R Sportsman model 999,
I finally pointed one this week, worked a deal, drove 1 1/2 hrs each way, but here she is.
Looked up SN and mfg date is 1982.
No scratches, on gun or grips, bluing is 100% not even the slightest drag line on cylinder.
Im hard pressed to tell if has been fired, but I know its had 18 shots thru it.
Seen several of these, but never one this nice and clean.
The old man I got it from ,swears it will hit an 8" target at 50 yards with all 9 rounds.
Its been in his bedroom nightstand since new.
I have been turned down offering $400 for pretty rough ones.
Walked out with this one for $350.
