This Harrington and Richardson Sportsman is the direct ancestor to the 999 Sportsman, and its serial number is 387xx, dating it to some time in the 1940s. It is the birdshead style grip frame with one-piece checkered walnut grips, and it comes with its period original Brauer Brothers leather holster. Left side of barrel read H&R and enquoted word Sportsman, then Double Action on the second line. Right side of barrel reads Harrington & Richardson Arms Co., then second line Worcester, Mass. U.S.A. This revolver is definitely eligible as a Curio and Relic, since it was manufactured before 1950, when H&R began prefixing letters to their numbers; it is, more important, eminently serviceable, even Excellent mechanically. This revolver comes to us from our neighbors in Missouri, up in the Hannibal vicinity. It belonged to an old coon hunter from that locale, and still has his well used but well protected Brauer Brothers Holster from nearby St. Louis. This Sportman H&R is, of course, a six inch barrel, nine shot, top break double action, one of the most artistically executed of all top breaks, and one of the best revolvers mechanically and accuracy-wise. It exhibits normal moderate holster wear. The most conspicuous areas are on the muzzle sides, with holster buffed streaking extending back about 2 ½ inches on the right side, and all along the lower edge on the left lower side of the barrel. Forward cylinder flute edges have moderate whitening, and cylinder rotation marking is moderate as well. Trigger guard has moderate toning spots on about 20 percent of its surfaces, and the forward grip frame by the serial number is a buffed gun metal gray with some original bluing on that portion by the edges of the grips. Hammer and trigger sides have about 20 percent brownish toning. Grips is Very Good, with dullness to its finish and moderate scouring and pecking that affects about 20 percent of its surface. The bore has a pitted or recessed place inside about 1 1/2 inch forward of the forcing cone, but this should not affect the revolver's functioning or its accuracy. Rifling is otherwise bright, sharp, and excellent; and the cylinder chambers are all bright, clean and excellent. This revolver, other than the bore issue, is excellent mechanically. Note the absence of ping marks on the rear cylinder face: the old Missouri Coon Hunter never allowed anyone to dry fire his Sportsman. The mechanical hand has only left faint marking on the rotation teeth on the ejector face. Timing is perfect. The hammer travels a full 25 to 30 degrees after the cylinder times in all nine positions. Double action trigger pull is quite smooth, and the single action pull is an exceptionally crisp 3 7/8 pounds with minimal travel. Blast effect to the barrel top stap directly above the forcing cone is only moderate, a shallow crease that traverses only about 1/3 of the top strap area. Holster has no significant cracking to its surfaces, and its stitching is completely intact. This is a very attractive, eminently serviceable and sound mechanical H&R Sportsman from the 1940s. We're offering it for only $ 379.95
