The right side of the frame shows surface erosion above the trigger guard and scattered spots of pinprick erosion on the left side. The barrel shows wear at the muzzle and scattered erosion on the barrel and cylinder. There is some yellow dried grease on the hammer and trigger. The Screw heads are sharp and undamaged. The markings are clear. Overall, this revolver rates in about Good condition.
Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We have not fired this revolver.
Box, Paperwork & Accessories: A HEISER 416 holster is provided. This holster is marked “HR 6 / Sport” above the “H.Heiser Maker Denver Colo.” makers mark and “416” below. The holster is intact, showing wear and scuffs but no tears or losses. The snap is marked “Heiser Denver”.
Our Assessment: This is the classic fisherman's box and carry gun. A reasonable quality cheap to shoot 9-shot .22 revolver. Although marked .22 Long Rifle this revolver will accommodate all the .22's except magnums. Single action makes it safe to teach with. This should make a fun plinker, and anyone familiar with this series of 9-shot H&R revolvers probably knows their great reputation. Oh yeah, and the original Heiser marked holster is probably worth about as much as the revolver. A nice combination.
