    Glad to see you're back Hoss. Hate to hear that it's been a tough time for you.

    Good looking gun there though. My grandpa has the exact same gun on his nightstand. You don't see a lot of those around anymore.

    Thanks my old friend-
    No, a lot of the later 999's around but not so many of the original Sportsmans-
    Was told her Grandfather bought it new in the thirties mabe? Guess i need to reserch the serial number, with a 260 number i guess it was made the first or second year of production?

    Leave the original finish as is. You might not want to sell it but the next generation might need some cash. :)

    My condolences on your loss.

    That is an odd trigger guard but a comfortable-looking grip.

    I'd just do a simple cleaning, and oil the stuffings out of it...maybe use some extra-fine steel wool if there's any rust...
    The oil will help the finish...get a good soak overnight & wipe off any excess in the morning...
    then q-tip/dry-patch the cylinder holes & chamber/barrel to get the oil out, as oil+heat+pressure = glue...

    These guys are the H&R experts...

    Yerp, definitely check in with the link above, they'll be able to give you The specific info on those oldies ;)
    My info on 'em is fairly generic...comes from having lotsa old gun books ;)

    Bill GoForth, before he passed, was THE guy...most of the info can be found in a search of that site,
    but there are a couple of slightly younger H&R guys who really know their stuff on there nowadays!
