Default Help!!!?

I have an opportunity to buy an H&R Trapper .22 revolver. It's kind of rough looking and has no grips. I think it could be a fun restoration project but don't know anything about it. I can't seem to find grips online so I would probably make some. The price is a hundred bucks. Should I get it or not?

In your opinion is it better to keep the hundred bucks probably closer to 150 all said and done?

I saw in another thread the pic of yours. I think I am going to offer 60 max at 75 then I can get the grips and only have a hundred into it.

Im not sure its worth 20 in that condition.

They are about 220$ nib condition. What you got there is no where near the 100$ mark.

They arent rated for 22lr anyway only long and short.
