This attractive specimen of the NEF R73 revolver series comes to us from a New England collection. From its NB serial number prefix, it was manufactured in 1987. Manufacturer was New England Firearms, an interim receivership name for the old Harrington & Richardson Company in Gardner, Massachusetts. Type is traditional double and single action, swingout cylinder revolver. Chambering is .32 S&W, .32 S&W Long, and .32 H&R Magnum interchangeably. Construction is entirely steel metal, with one polymer buffer part internally, and hardwood grips. Barrel is 2 1/2 inch heavy one piece, pinned into the frame. Rifling is six groove right hand 1:16. Sights are pressed in blade front with frame integral fixed notch rear. Trigger is .300 smooth face, with matching white steel hammer. Ignition is floating firing pin, with transfer bar safety device that prevents the hammer from contacting the firing pin unless the trigger is fully depressed. Double action trigger pull is characteristically H&R stiff, 15 to 18 pound vicinity; the single action trigger pull, however, is a tolerable 8 pounds with a minimal amount of felt creep from the transfer bar mechanism. Grip frame is round butt type, with 1.3 inch lateral grip thickness. Overall length is 7 inches from the muzzle to the grip frame back strap, and 4 3/4 inches height from butt to top of frame. Weight empty is 23 1/2 ounces, with center of gravity at the rear cylinder face. Surface detractions on this specimen are moderate, principally occasional finish freckling and streaking. We rate it as Very Good, 80 percent vicinity, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Bore, cylinder chambers, and mechanism are all bright and clean. From the absence of any significant blast effect to the under side of the frame top strap, and from lack of wear and carbon on the cylinder face, we estimate this H&R has been fired fewer than 200 times. Lateral play to the cylinder is minimal, and the cylinder times correctly in all five positions on single and double action. Replacement pricing on any .32 Magnum Revolver these days is upwards of $400. We’re offering this very attractive Reagan Era NEF R73, however, for only $ 269.00. Not transferable to civilian residents of California, District of Colombia, or Massachusetts.
