I have a harrington and richardson 38s&w ctge pistol model number is 468018. how much is it worth and what year and what ammo will it handle. I know that the shells are different and it is a break over 5 shot auto ejector.
Moving your post to our brand new Harrington and Richardson forum.
Yours will be the very first one posted there.
An answer to your question will follow soon.
Thank you JP for working on my question and look forward to the answers.
I'm going to need additional information if I am to identify your revolver. There are just too many different H&R top break guns that were chambered for the .38 S&W.
Please tell me about any and all writing on the gun, whether it is on the barrel, or the frame.
Also can you tell me the length of the barrel and describe the grips?
468018 is definitely not a model number. It might be a serial number. Where is it located on the gun?
that number is probally a serial number it is found in two different places one is on the end of the grip on the frame and the other is on the inside of the frame when you pull the grips off. the grips are black and has a diamond at the top of the grips, H&R and address is spelled out complete on the top of the barrel in between the sight line. on the left side is 38 s&w ctge. the barrel is 4 inch the best i can measure. if you need additonal information then i will try and borrow a camera and get you some pics.
thank you for your time
I WANT TO KNO HOW OLD IT IS?
Unfortunately, most of the H&R records no longer exist. Only those revolvers made after about the time of WWII can be identified by serial number. Those guns have a letter in the serial number.
I have a Harrington and Richardson 38 s & W ctge with a serial number of 49c130. Can you tell me anything about it? Year ? Worth?
Not really. As I mentioned earlier in this thread, serial numbers prior to 1940 cannot be traced. Also, most of these guns are not particularly valuable. Maybe $200-$300 if it is in exceptional condition.
