I have actually an H&R S&W .38 top break revolver. Serial number 82009 ~ above the grip, but the number over the cylinder looks like starts with one F, then 82009. There is no caliber ~ above the left next of the barrel. Wondering what model it could be, exactly how old it is and also what type of ammo come use. Peak of the barrel has actually patent dates and also was made in Worcester, Mass.The pistol is in an excellent shape. Any kind of info would certainly be appreciated - many thanks

Hi

Your gun to be made through Harrington & Richardson, not by smith & Wesson. The shoots the .38 S&W cartridge, and also that is that only connection with smith & Wesson. Please keep in mind that the .38 S&W is no the exact same cartridge together the .38 S&W Special. That is shorter and contempt fatter. .38 Specials will certainly not work in your revolver.

I"m moving this thread come the H&R category, so someone with understanding of these guns can answer your questions.

Regards,JP


pablopescado: your revolver has been renickeled.

Please short article detailed photos of both political parties of the gun and also readable, close-ups of every markings, including serial number and patent days for identification and evaluation.

The patent dates and also ALL markings ~ above the top and also sides the the barrel and frame and other places plus the serial number through letter prefix (if over there is one) under the left grip panel or the revolver butt are absolutely important to identify the Model and also variation of her revolver.

There room no markings ~ above either next of the barrel. The optimal shows the patent days and above the cylinder that is marked F82009. The cylinder and extractor both have a "9" stamped ~ above it. No markings top top the butt plate. Why would certainly they renickel an cheap gun? - many thanks

pablopescado: You have actually a huge Frame automatically Ejecting revolver, 2nd Model, fifth Variation make in 1903.

This revolver is chambered because that the .38 S & W black color Powder cartridge and is not considered safe to usage with contemporary ammunition.

The refinishing could likewise be chrome plating and I to be leaning towards chrome rather than nickel due to the difficult shine.

There can be dozens of reasons why someone would certainly refinish an cheap revolver.

My supposition would certainly be a sentimental reason related to an ancestor or, much more likely, own by someone that was employed by a chrome or nickel plating business.
