Notice I am missing front sight blade, have another on order, Have attached pictures, Any one else with experence with this .22?, Thanks Olypenn22

My father has one in the original box with all the papers, his has white marble like plastic grips. it feel like it is built real solid but I have never shot it and I don't think he has. It was my mothers fathers gun. I have a H&R pre 1942 hammerless pocket pistol in 38S&W that I use for Cowboy action Shooting and other than the finish being a little worn it still locks up tight and functions fine.

Exclamation "ole lightning"

WOW! Been almost 40 yrs. but that sure looks like the good ole pistol i used to carry on my trap lines. The drop out cylinder made it eqasy to "unload" everytime i moved to another location. (this was b/4 CCW) I used to just drop the cylinder into my pkt ,then pop her back in down the road. I used to call that gun "Ole Lightning" cause it sure seemed it would never hit the same place twice. Sold it for $30.00 I used that one for trapping being so if i fell into the creek with her not big deal. If that one don't shoot any straighter than the one i had you won't need the frt sight blade.

The very first 22 pistol I ever shot was a H&R trappers model a 9 shot top break. To me it was awsome, at 5 yro. I still think it may have been a ok gun. It lead me to buy a S&W 617 so I could maybe expierence my childhood with a revolver.

My first revolver was a 922 which I bought for $75 close to 30 years ago. Still have it and it take it to the range a few times a year. It has never given me any problems and is as accurate as my Ruger Single Six.

I'm not sure what your pistol looks like Olypenn22 because all I have are red X's but I know mine doesnt break over like Cheyenne Ryder's. This is my first post to this site and have a question about my H&R 922.

I got the pistol from my dad and it was his dad's. I have not been able to find any info on this gun.... age, worth (from what I've seen not a hole lot), etc. I just recently found out what H&R stood for. Thanks for anyother input.

Well, I learned to shoot a handgun with one, does that count? Between my brother and I we probably put 10,000 rounds through it. My dad wasn't too happy, since it was his gun. We loved it. Lightweight, 9 shot, it helped you go through a box of .22 cartridges in a hurry. Double action is a bit of a challenge, however.

I always found it to be relatively accurate. I has much better accuracy out of the H&R than from the heavy barrel Ruger auto I bought years later. The first sign of wear was a tendency to skip a chamber. (remember, this was after about 10 yrs of 2 boys carrying it in holsters, pockets and everything else, over hill and dale, through streams, ponds, well you get the idea) I think you will have a blast with it.

Last year I found one in very good condition in a pawn shop. I bought it and gave it to my dad to replace his. Now if I can replace the tools we lost over the years....
