handy gun
Remember years ago harington & richardson made a .410 shotgun pistol, can vaguely remember it. What were the barrel lengths offered and what was the selling price ( at that time). Can a person have one of these now if one is found???

There are a few out there still made today that take a .410 shell as well as a .45 round. The Taurus Judge is one. Here's a vid of one in action.

As for legality, that's a local issue; consult your state/county/city laws.

H&R Handy Gun
My father passed and left me this 410. I have his registration Form #1 stamped by the IRS and the ATF dated in April 1961. I have to say, this gun is an absolute blast to shoot!. I have no need and want to sell this gun. My questions are, 1) what do I need to do to "legally" sell this gun, 2) what is this gun worth when in excellent condition, and 3) what is the best way to find a buyer? Thanks for your help and information.

The handy gun requires the qualified buyer to pay a $5 transfer fee.

As said- the Handy Gun is a National Firearms Act weapon- like machine guns, cannon etc- EXCEPT it is an Any Other Weapon (AOW)- transfer tax is $5 instead of $200.

FIRST thing is to get the gun transferred to you. With a registered INHERITED NFA arm, it should transfer to you with no tax- contact the ATF for guidance. To sell it, I would find a dealer with a license to sell NFA arms. Value runs ABOUT $500-$750. But unless you really need the money right now, I would get it transferred to me, and just hold it.

If it was a 20 ga I would buy it right now.

If it was a 20, it would not be a Handy Gun.

I with the "Keep It" crowd.

Handy gun barrel lengths were 8" and 12". They were made in .410 and a few were made in 28 ga.

A friend a has a 20 ga double barrel that is made a lot like the handy gun. Every time I have had a winning trip at the horse races I have tried to buy that gun. He is just not interested in selling it. Ggggrrrrrrrrrrr :mad:
