    Hi, Anyone here know where I can get the one piece wooden grips for an H&R model 949 .22 revolver:confused: I've searched the web for half the day :banghead: and all I found was 1 well used set on Gunbroker. Thanks.

    willy,
    The 1 piece western style H&R grips are becoming very hard to find.
    Like you, I've seen a few listed lately, none were too nice.
    If you are interested in finishing your own, I think I have a new unfinished set stashed away somewhere.
    Let me know, and I will see if I can find them.
    Jim

    Hi Jim, I'm into woodworking as well as shooting and reloading. I'm just not proficient enough to make a one piece grip from scratch. Finishing, I'm up for. When you get a chance and can find the grip send me a PM. Thanks for the reply.

    My brain is't what it used to be, so no promises!

    That 949 is a nice shooter. My grandfather passed it and a western holster and cartridge belt to my dad. My dad passed it on to me. My grandfather or my dad filed/ground grooves in the grip so it would fit their hand better. I'm giving the 949 and the holster to my son-in law for Christmas. I'm having the holster and belt reconditioned and would like to have new grips for it. Keeping the gun culture alive in my family.

    willy,
    I have about 30 H&R's, and love them all.
    The 949 is a great model, nothing fancy, just an excellent, firearm, made to work!
    Here's a pic of mine.

    On a different note, not all 949's were made to work!
    Here's a pic of my Nebraska Centennial commemorative H&R model 949's
    # 100, and # 118 of 300.

    Nice looking guns, Jim!! Here is my 949. Notice how the grip has been filed/ground down. Also, the red on the gun in the picture is not rust. It's just the lighting.

    The rest of the revolver looks good!
    I'll try to get down to the basement today, and see if I still have the grips.

    I thought I'd bump this back up in case someone missed it the first time around.

    Bluehawk,
    Yep, pretty much the same revolver, except for the 22/22 mag convertible thing. Also 6 shooter rather than 9 shot.
    I've got a couple 649's also.
    5.5", and a 7.5", only barrel lengths offered, both made in 1980.
    Here's a couple pics.

    Also a model 650. Same revolver, except in nickel. Also 1980 manufacture.

    Nice pics...I truly love that 649...accurate and reliable and easy to maintain.
    Where can I find manufacture dates for it?

    Post the 2 letter prefix of the serial #, and I will tell you year of production.

    AP = 1976 manufacture.
    Send me your email address.
    I think I have a list filed somewhere.
    Will give you DOM from 1940 thru 1986 .
