Default My New Old Toy :)

Thanx to my dad not knowing anything about firearms i got me a new gun My mom had gotten my grandfathers H & R sportsman 9 shoot .22 revolver. Had to clean it before i was able to shoot it, my dad had put 100 rounds through it and "Cleaned it" found out his idea of clean is wiping off with a rag When i got it home and really got to clean it i took off the cylinder and the oil was the same my grandfather had put on it prolly 15-20 years ago We'll needless to say i get to keep it since my mother knows i'll take better care of it The firearm has one full piece handle so think it's pre war gotta check the serial though. Shoots decent though

Pics! I'm partial to h&r products just because they were made 15minutes away.

H&R used the one piece grip on the Sportsman models until 1954 I believe.
It may have been 1953 that they changed to the 2 piece grips.
Not sure which year.

Sight searching takes a while. I'll check my books and see if I can give you a guide.

Introduced 1936-1985 and reintroduced 1992. That's about all I have on hand from 4 different sources. H&r info can be hard to narrow down.

Does the serial# have a letter prefix?
If so, post it, and I will tell you year of manufacture.
If it has no letter prefix, it was built pre 1940.

A prefix = 1940 manufacture.
