it could be 22 short, some older guns like rg made 22short caliber handguns. i own a nef and it says 22lr on the barrel. i noticed on gun broker that the 22short guns have a much shorter cylinder than the regular 22lr at least in the rg brand they do. if 22lr will load and not stick out the end of the cylinder it is probably 22lr.
Thanks guys hope you can see the pic's had a hard time getting the print to show up.
the gun seems to have only been fired a few times like three and put away and forgotten about.
on the barrel the only thing that it says is Modle 949 22 cal. other than where it was made nothing else on the gun .
Not sure of the age. I have done a little research before and could not nail it down. I know is dates prior to about 1953 (I was 6) because I remember my father taking it up behind our house to and old quarry and shooting it. It was the first gun I ever shot.
The barrel is marked "H&R Sportsman" Double Action I think it may be a model 999. They were made back in the 30's.
Thanks Dave that's what this cylinder measures the same. So I'm sure it must be 22lr at least I shot it with them in it lol. Their really not that bad of a gun they seems to be made pretty well . Just can't seem to find much about them. it had been put up for who know how long . Had some trouble with it skipping rounds but took it apart and found someone had put the hammer spring in wrong . Now it seems to work great . Thanks for the help
Randy, when me and my brothers ventured out to go coon hunting as kids, a neighbor lent us an old H&R 22 similar to your 949 to use on coons (should we be lucky enough to tree one with the dogs). Those old H&Rs never got anyone to go ooh! and aah! like Colts or Rugers or Smiths, but they worked and did their job. Good basic shooters. Enjoy yours.
North country Gal lol yeah thats what I'm going to start using it for I coon hunt now and have been using my new Ruger single six and it was starting to get a little banged up. I think this H&R will do the trick . using rat shoot might be better in this H&R Too
Some fine dogs you have there. We used to run mostly Treeing Walkers, but also a Bluetick and B&T, now and then. When all the old coots that took us hunting discovered how well I could shoot a pistol, they gave the job to me. Dropped plenty of coons with that old H&R. Of course, had a lot steadier hands in those days.
I had a H&R 905 that I often miss. Swing out 9 shot cylinder, heavy 4 inch barrel, electroless nickel looked like stainless. It said "22LR". Fun and shot well, once I shortened the hammer spring by several coils. Original trigger pull seemed like maybe 30 pounds.......
Decided to try these Hogue Monogrip Revolver grips for my beloved S&W642 .38spc.
I like the Hogue® Tamer Monogrip® grips on our LCRx and wanted to try them on my 642 to help with preceived recoil. Getting on in years and I still love my 38's for me personally they are dependable but range time...
Missus FeralCatKillr’s first pistol was a Ruger SR-22. She was not a fan of it, and I agreed it was not a great gun for her. She strongly disliked having a gun with a DA/SA trigger transition (as did none other than Col. Jeff Cooper, so she was in good company there.) I was sort of morally...
Just wondering, which of these is better more foolproof for self defense? I love revolvers and have one of each, but the Charter .44 special is my favorite. It shoots better and is lighter and feels better in my hand. I can shoot it way more accurately and I like the round better.
I have a .357...
My friend found guns.com on line this afternoon and I've never heard of them before. They say they list guns for dealers, but you buy from guns.com and they take care of all the details for you, like getting the FFL license from the dealer you want them to ship to, etc.
I need to know if anyone...
