    What would a used H&R .22 revolver sell for, especially in Georgia? Not what one of us would pay for one, but what a shop could sell one for? research for a case.

    Well, my $.02 - Here in Indiana, I bought a 98% H&R in .32. Couldn't hit crap with it so I sold it. Last time I was in a shop on the other side of town (that I usually don't stop in at) they had a 38 Colt or 38 Long (whatever it was, it didn't shoot 38 Spc.) and was in very good condition for $150. Price might be a bit low due to the obscure ammo. :confused:

    Sorry I couldn't cloud the issue more. :D

    I've got an 1970s vintage 999 6" Sportsman that I suspect may be worth around $200. I would not even consider selling it tho as it is one of the most reliable and accurate handguns I own. When time for such, I've put it up against the Colt Gold Cup and the 999 comes out on top as many times as not.

    H&R made several variations of .22 revolvers. But I'd expect that $100 to $200 depending on variation and in good condition would be a fair price.

    I've had a couple of H&R revolvers in the past. A snub .38 S&W top break (almost impossible to find ammo for) and a 4" swing out cylinder .22LR. Dispite their utilitarian appearance and somewhat heavy DA trigger pulls; both were accurate, sturdy and reliable.

    My grandfather told me that in his youth they (the H&R .22 revolvers) were popular among ranch and farm hands. They were entirely adequate tools for dispatching snakes and other small varments. Expensive polished and tuned handguns simply weren't appropriate or needed as part of daily work gear.
