H&R Premiere .22lr top break revolver.  This thing is so cute there was NO way I was going to let it go.  Bore is pristine!  Actually they listed it on Armslist just last night, I spotted it and called them, asked if they could put it away until I got there today...  “Sure!”

Damn they are great enablers.  They just put it on my C&R which I have on file with them! 😁



I don’t know how I’m going to survive this new job... 😱

    Yeah, I would have bought that and I’m not EVEN looking for a .22 revolver.

    I’ve wanted one of those single shot “parlor pistol” .22s for a long time.  This thing is so dainty!  The cylinder is TINY.  So this will take care of that itch.  Hope my wife is ok with the smoke in the living room 😂

    I was seriously JUST talking to a buddy of mine yesterday that the first handgun I ever fired was an H&R Sportsman 999 (the lower class version of your gun), and I have never seen one for sale in real life.

    And you just bought one.

    Jerk.

    Yep, 7 shot.  I have not looked up a manufacturing date yet.  This will enjoy a strict diet of CCI Quiets and CB Longs.  No sense stressing the old gal!!!

    Excellent find, congrats.  Had a real nice 999 some while ago but in a moment of weakness sold it to a friend. Regrets!!!

    These older H&Rs .22s are like the most underestimated guns out there.  I hear your story all the time and everyone regrets parting with them.

    Another nice downsize. Congrats

    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    So cool! Love that old "S&W-ish" look and the fact that being ,22LR you can enjoy shooting it A LOT.

    1st. one I've seen of those; nice combinaton of a Model 3 frame with Webley MkVI grip shape.

    That’s a nice way of describing it.  I keep looking at it because it’s so freaking dainty.  The cylinder has the circumference just slightly bigger than a Quarter and has 7 chambers!  No mini mags out of this one.
