    There is a website I visited not long ago that had a resident H&R expert who could provide the clues. I just can't remember the site at the moment, but it helped me date a 32 revolver I have.

    Those Sportsman revolvers are nice guns.

    Brian,
    L prefix = 1951 manufacture of the Sportsman.

    Here's a pic of my 1951 model.

    "L" serial numbers were made in 1951.

    Great gun, btw. It'll be shooting fine long after we're dust. I like H&Rs.

    Wow. We're on the same wavelength, 8:23 on the dot.

    Hey woad yurt!
    Good to see you still posting.
    Seems like our paths cross pretty often!
    I have been out of the loop lately, some health issues have kept me in the hospital for awhile.
    Great to be back on the forums!!!
    You would have beat my post if I had decided to post a pic right away, but I added it later.
    Take care, and enjoy the H&R's!!
    Jim

    I have a h & R 922 from i believe around 1950 or 1951 L50027
    it was my dads, he got it new when he was 15. this .22 still shoots great. I have the box and all paper work with it. It has the fall out barrel. i dont care for that really .
    If the gun is in great condition, i have seen them go for $200. I wound never sell mine though.

    ohio,
    Here is a pic of my 1950 model 922.
    I bought it from my uncle before he passed away.
    He bought it new. I have the box, manual, receipt, and hang tag.
    Also the box of shells that he bought with it. There were still 17 in the box. It is like new.
    A simple inexpensive, utility model. but, mine shoots excellent, and will long outlive me.
    He paid $ 24.50 for it in 1950. I paid him $ 25 in 2008!
    I just wanted to make sure it stayed in the family, as did he.
    It was the piece that started my H&R addiction!
    None of my 30+ H&R;s are for sale, but no matter what happens, this one will never be sold.

    Brian, I found my reference file for web lookups... thefirearmsforum.com has a section on H&Rs, and the resident expert there is b. goforth.....

    He should be able to help you with any info. I would up over there because of an inherited H&R and I am now getting an H&R revolver itch.
