Default Worn out H&R 922

The "How Long Have You Been Shooting" thread got me kind of sentimental so I dug out the gun I learned to shoot with. My dads H&R 922. I don't know when it was cleaned last, but I'm sure he hadn't shot it in 10 years before he passed in '06. I got the gun and fired it a couple times to notice shrapnel coming back at me. Upon closer inspection I realized the edges of the piece that keys the cylinder in place when you fire, are worn down, and allows the cylinder to rotate enough for the bullet to graze the edge of the barrel/frame. So I retired the gun.

Tonight I dug it out and took a couple of pics...

Worn out gun.



Yes, that is lead stuck to the frame next to the barrel. I don't know how many times it was fired like that before I got it and retired it. Heck, there's a good chance I was the last one who fired the gun before I inherited it, and that would have been about 10 years before.

Oh well, some day I'll get my curio rack built and this will be a wall hanger. One that brings back many fond memorys of my Dad. *sniff*

If any of you could tell me the year, the serial number starts with a M.

It's a shame it doesn't work right anymore I also learned to shoot a handgun on a H&R 922.

IF you have the time and steady hand along with the will power , you can make what you need if the part is not out there . I have made many many parts like this , You will need a good dremel set and a micrometer for starters . The material you use is also another factor , I have used an old ratchet ' tool steel' to cut and make my stuff . Sometimes you can find a universal part and work it to fit your needs , Im not a wall hanger person as all my guns no matter the age will fire at least once . My K frame .22 got to shaving rounds real bad and it was nothing more than some bent parts getting it out of time .

Hawg, thank you too. I posted it on the other forum as you suggested.
