  • H & R Top Break 32 Caliber

    I am trying to help a friend put a value on an old H&R top break double action revolver. Serial D 14910 and I suspect this gun was made in the late 1800's or early 1900's. Patent info on the top lists several pats with the last one listed as April 7, 1898. That may mean nothing but its all I have to go on.

    For the life of me I cannot even find the caliber listed on the gun but the cylinder size looks like a 32 of some form.

    Nickel plated with a barrel of a tad over 3".

    Any ideas?


    I don't see this gun listed in the Blue Book of gun values either.

      Would you buy this revolver?

      Would you shoot it?

        I used to have one. Harrington & Richardson .32 S&W Long. I paid $175 in Maryland. Gave it to a friend when I left. Nice gun, but not really my style.

          I have a old Owlshead which is same type of revolver. Most top breakes go between $100 and $200 bucks around here.

              I sold that H&R revolver today for $100 and was happy to see it go. Only way I would shoot it was to tie it to a tree and use a long string to pull the trigger.
              But I had no ammo for it and was happy not to provide a buyer with ammo to hurt himself.

                I know what you mean Lee. I never give any old ammo or stuff that I have reloaded with any gun I sell. Factory ammo only if it's still with the box. Looks like your sales are moving right along. Good luck...

                  I managed to unload all but two of the guns and have a partial payment on the little 25 caliber tip up barrel. So one Remington model 31 pump shotgun and the collection is gone.
