H&R .22 LR pre-999 Sportsman VG-Exc 1933 Original Box Flint, MI Domicile Harrington & Richardson First Year Production 22 Short, Long, or Long Rifle pre 999  Guns > Pistols > Harrington & Richardson Pistols
Description: Mrs. Sue Shea was born in Crawford County, Wisconsin, in 1888. We do not know her maiden name. During the World War I Years, she relocated to Flint, Michigan, and worked very hard as an autoworker and Defense Contractor employee by way of Service to her Country during both World Wars. Some time during 1933, her husband Charles purchased one of the new Harrington and Richardson Sportsman top breaks with steel frame, walnut grips, adjustable sights, and 6 inch barrel and evidently shipped it to his wife, all perfectly legal during those Pre-1968 years. By 1939, upstanding woman that she was, Mrs. She applied to the Flint Police Department for her safety inspection papers; and Chief Neil F. Anderson of the Flint Police Department signed her safety inspection certificate for the revolver on July 27, 1939, after Mrs. Shea completed the process for her license. The revolver itself has a D25,000 range serial number, Early / First Year Production from 1932 – 1933 before the first variant came into play that had a vent rib barrel. Mrs. Shea preserved her revolver very, very well, with its original box and with her Michigan Green Card for it. The revolver itself shows strong original finish, only aging in the form of finish weakness to the edges of its one-piece Walnut Grip; and a moderate amount of freckling to its otherwise flawless bright blue finish. We rate it as Very Good, perhaps even Excellent, since no more than 10 to 15 percent of its surfaces are affected, in our estimation. Photos, at any rate, ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. It is excellent mechanically. Bore, cylinder chambers, and mechanism are all bright, clean, and excellent. Since carbon deposits are minimal on the cylinder face, we do not believe Mrs. Sue fired her revolver more than 50 times. At her death in 1984, her Southern Transplant hillbilly auto worker relatives did the right thing, and transferred the revolver from her estate, and the transfer card bears the Honorable Ralph Soffrendine’s signature, Sheriff of Grand Traverse County in 1984. When Mrs. Sue’s relatives migrated back to their ancestral home in Middle Tennessee in the late 1980s, they brought her revolver with them. And just recently, they brought it to us and we gladly bought it. Its own migration, then, was from Massachusetts to Arizona to Michigan and to Tennessee.

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony. GA Pay buyers are NOT charged until we confirm we have the item and are ready to ship it. The same thing is true for phone-in, fax-in, and mail-in payments. In this respect, and in several others, Guns America outshines all its competitors. This is the best firearms website there is, hands down.
