I am familiar with your Sportsman Double action, which is being refereed to as a 999. There are one or two more current running discussions on RFC on these revolvers. Look under misc and H&R. (( I see now, your sportsman grip is 2 pieces, maybe you have a different hammer design, I leave it to you to determine how that gun works. It maybe different))

A safety note. The hammer rebounds so you can load and shoot 9 at the range. BUT! It is not safe to holster and carry with 9 as a serious tap on the hammer can result in a discharge. I consider this more dangerous than a colt SAA on the safety notch. And no one would carry a SAA with hammer on the 1st notch..

Two out of two old H&R rim fire revolvers have show weak ignition. New springs and assemblies are available from Numrich Arms. Those parts worked.

Period holsters are leather and they are fine as holsters but, another but. I would not store a gun in a leather holster. Take it out, oil it and put it away. Also know, if you carry the pistol a lot the blue will wear off. I am done with the old leather holsters.

Congrats! I have a 999 that I got years ago. Very accurate with a great single action trigger, Double action is way to long and heavy. Its killed a lot of squirrels and bunnies! Take em out and shoot the heck out of em!
