In a different thread, I posted pics of several of my H&R's. It was suggested to me that I should start a new thread by another fan. So, here we go.
Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy bringing them to you!
Feel free to add your own!!
Let's start off with my model 686 convertibles
Every barrel length offered, all 1980 manufacture, except the 10", which wasn't offered until 1982.
All NIB or LNIB
This is a start. I'll post the rest of the convertibles next.

What a beautiful collection of H & R's. Very knew to these pistols. Was the "marbling" a trademark of the company? Is there a 22 Mag cylinder available for the 976?
Thank you all for your time.

The model 976 was 22 lr only. As were all the 900 series,which were all 9 shot revolvers.
The convertible models were all 6 shooters.
Models 649, 666 676, and 686.
Don't know what you are referring to about the marbling?
July 16, 2010, 10:45 AM
I have quite a few more, this is just a sample.
It took a long time to find all these, and the search is never ending!

I think flybuoy was referring to the color case hardening on some of them. Great collection you have there; I especially like the nickel and chrome plated models. Thanks for sharing.

Anyone know of a source for grips for the older ('50's) Sportsman with the one piece grip?
