Not as cool as the Colt .32 I posted about.... I believe it also belonged to my moms' folks. This is a .32 cal 5-shot, top-break revolver that was manufactured by Harrington & Richardson somewhere between 1887 and after the turn of the century. I did some research, and there isn't a whole lot of information regarding this company or most of it's firearms. I did find that their earliest models were designed for black powder use. They were produced with the budget-conscious (like our Hi-Points are today ) consumer in mind. Based on what I could find out and the markings on the pistol, I can reasonably guess that this was an early 1900's production gun. Although not a high-value collectible, it is still a piece of history and a definite keeper. It is very, very likely that it will never see range time. I found out that they aren't considered very safe with today's production ammunition, and I really don't think it's worth the risk, even if a gunsmith ok's it for mild/light hand loads. So, back in the safe it went. I just thought I'd share another bit of firearms history, however relatively unknown it may be, with my fellow firearms enthusiasts (read "gun nuts" ).
