Price of a used .22 revolver
 
I don't think this question has been asked (tried a search) but I am thinking about buying a .22 revolver. I don't need a new one with all the bells and whistles, just a basic single action .22 Lr for plinking. Barrel anywhere from 4"-6" (preferably 6") Once again I just want to know what a used one is going for. Thanks.

125 - 150 should get you a good one

Thanks guys. I figured it would be around $150.

If you decide to get Heritage Arms, check it over thoroughly.

Say, bud- I am looking to buy a used car. How much is that going to cost me? :p

Depends on what you get. Used H&R, about $150. Used S&W or Colt- A LOT more.

Not a revolver, but $150 could bring you a used Ruger standard 22 Auto.

I guess this is true, but I am only looking for a standard revolver. I'm not looking for the golden edition used by Wyatt Earp. I was wanting a used Ruger, but they might be out of my price range. So anyway, what can I expect out of an H&R revolver because this is the first I have heard of them. I know, I know, before anyone says it "You get what you pay for."

Lots of options in the way of H&R's
You can find some of the "utility" line pieces, 922, 929,622 in nice shooting condition for $ 150 pretty often, more for the excellent condition stuff.
For the H&R top of the kline Sportsman series, you will pay more.
Anywhere from $ 175-200 for a good shooter condition. to around $ 450 - 500 for a NIB or LNIB model 999.
Watch the auctions, ask a lot of questions, and you can still find some GREAT shooting H&R's reasonable.

Here is a model 940 target shooter, probably around the 200 -250 area

here are a few Sportsman pics

1980 model 999 4" 400 -500 in excellent condition if it has the box

1955 999 Sportsman around $ 250- 300 G]http://i543.photobucket.com/albums/gg467/jimmyjoe/dscn16292.jpg[/IMG]

H&R also made MANY sa/da western style revolvers that were good shooters at reasonable prices, mostly somewhere in between the utility price, and the 999 Sportsman priced pieces. Too many choices to list here. Models 976, 949,950,904, etc.

my opinion, H&R made some great, simple, working class guns. reliable, accurate, & inexpensive.

quite a few of the H&R (which stands for Harrington & Richardson, in case you didn't know) revolvers had different barrel lengths available. the 929 jamesjo has pictured also came with 4 & 6 inch barrels, plus also could have larger target style grips. same can be said about the 922 & 622 having short barrels. H&R later became New England Firearms & made revolvers for a few years, the .22 caliber ones were all R92 models so that's also something to keep an eye out for.

like c3 said, $150ish can buy you a ruger standard or mark I/II pistol but they will probably be a bit rough comestically. well at least the one i bought for $150 was. but i've never had the best luck when it comes to finding a deal. :rolleyes:

a phoenix hp22 might be another option, you hear some ups & downs but most people seem to really like 'em & they go for less than $200

I know where you can get a Rohm RG-66 for less than $60.00.
Single action, .22lr, rough looking, missing the rear sight, locks up tight enough to shoot.
