    Default Harrington & Richardson Model 999 Sportsman .22 cal. Revolver

    Just picked a H&R Mod. 999 .22 cal revolver at a local gun shop. Wanted to buy a Smith but he didn't have any. Gun dates to about 1982, has been sent back to H&R for work and some refinish, looks to have original grips, two tone with a maroon frame, blued barrel,walnut grips, locks up good.
    Any one else out there have one? How well do they shoot?
    I welcome any comments, Joe.

    I've had several over the years and the were all dependable shooters. They are fun low cost plinking guns.
    I hope this helps.

    They shoot pretty well, the "Sportsman" isn't really a target gun, but a great plinker. I had a HKS speedloader for the H&R 999, not sure if these are still available?

    Who owns the rights and tooling to these? H&R? Too bad they can't make them still.

    Rear sight? Mine just has a notch in the top for a rear sight.

    Mine is supposed to have a rear sight, there is a slit for it and a tapped hole for the set screw. They list them on Numrich but have been sold out since I got the gun.
