YES! Actually, I had a broken one given to me... I fixed it and passed it on - free - and saved a while and sold my beloved Ruger MKII - to buy a new 617. It was worth it. Save your sheckles for something better...

I bought a H&R Sportsman 999 for $109.00 from a dealer. Unless its NIB I would pass on it.

For $300 you're into a nice used Ruger Single Six.

That sort of depends on what kind of condition it's in. For one in excellent to new condition, perhaps with a box and some paperwork, then $300 could be in the right neighborhood.

Gunbroker currently has two listed: a 4" in excellent condition, missing the rear sight and no box or paperwork, starting at $300. It has a buy it now price of $325. The other one is a 6", like new in box, built in 1943, and starting at $500. They also have a buy it now price of $575.

Some of the H&R Sportsman 999 are going for more than you see S&W K22 & M17's sell for! I have never owned one of these .22 revolvers but apparently these are a classic in some manufacturing years. Several on the board here collect the 999 and they have very impressive collections indeed. H&R made some cheap guns but they also made some very good one's! Price can be all over depending on model and year made.

I would have to say that is to much. Around me you can pick one up in very good shape for around 200 to 225. Even if it was brand new and in a box 300 seems kinda high. They are good revolvers, but for a few more dollars you can get a very good used ruger or S&W even a new tauris and they are nicer.

they also made a 199 which I have and paid $100 for as well, $300 would buy you a Ruger MKII which is a better gun IMO.

If he doesn't take it, just say thanks and walk.

crazyday,
Most of these replies seem to come from about 5 years ago!
Yes ther are several models that still regularly sell for around $100.
BUT,if you pay attention to what is happening now, you will notice that values for several H&R models are rising rapidly.
Most model 999 Sportsman pieces in excellent condition will bring $ 250 - 300.
with a box up to $ 350. Unfired in box anywhere from $ 350 up to $ 500.
As I said, condition os everything, and several of the more utility models can be had cheap.
But in the real world, you may be walking away from a pretty good deal. Do a little research, find out the condition and model #, come back with this info, maybe some of us can help you make an informed decision.

crazyday,

Sign up and log onto gunbroker.com. After signing in, you can search for sportsman and 999 in pistols and look at the Completed Auctions. I think you will see that the revolvers in good condition are selling for $300 to $400.

Compare the pistol being offered for $300 to the ones on gunbroker and then you have to decide if you want to spend $300 for the revolver offered. Without knowing the condition of the revolver, I do not see how anyone can claim a Sportsman 999 (or similar model) is or is not worth $300.

I do sometimes think that prices on gunbroker (and ebay) are often higher than prices that may be found locally, but the online auctions still provide a measuring stick, knowing that items are actually being bought and sold for that price.

Just because I would not pay xxx for an item (or because I remember when the item used to sell for half or a third that much), does not mean the item is overpriced.

It is not a 1943. I have one just about like it and it was manufactured in the mid 1930s.

I still wish they made the Sportsman. A 9 shot, break open, auto extracting, DA/SA revolver is exactly what I'd like to own. I remember seeing them new in the 1990s. I just never had the cash together when I saw one.

The last one I saw was a used one in 2008 at the last gun show I've ever been to. It was $275. I would have got it, but I just bought a new 9mm pistol the week before so the cash was gone yet again. :p

I guess it depends on if it's one of the rare H&R collectables. I recently paid a whopping $150 for a nice clean '51 Sportsman and it had been up for sale on a forum for a couple of weeks with no takers. I'd have to say offhand that $300 is WAY too much for an H&R.
