There was no other reason to buy this except (1) I sort of always wanted one, and (2) it was cheap.
It's a Harrington and Richardson Model 922, a fairly recent one I guess, since it's got a coil mainspring.
The front sight was missing when I got it, and I couldn't find one for the 2 1/2" barrel, so I looked around for something that would fit in the slot and realized a penny was just right. So I cut a penny in half, filled it down a little bit more, then put some epoxy on it, "blued" it with a magic marker, and VOLA. A front sight.
I had to "reblue" that left side.
I got no idea what I'm going to do with it. But it's cool to have.
