    Very nice - mind saying what you paid for it?

    They’re neat old guns that are often overlooked.

    The first pistol I ever fired and the one that I learned on. I wish my dad had never sold it ($100 at a gun show many years ago).

    Congrats!!

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the top strap of that revolver is broken. The cylinder should swing out, not up...

    :D

    Congrats on a good looking gun!

    Keep an eye on the rear sight blade. They had a bad habit of coming loose and getting lost.

    Nice little gun.
    I bought one in 2010.

    A few months ago I gave one just like it to a neighbor lady friend.

    As I recall there's a little screw that holds the front sight in place. You might check it from time to time.

    At age six I fired my first sidearm while camping with my uncle and my cousin in Mississippi circa 1962. It was an H&R revolver, just like the one you scored. My Grandfather had one also. He kept his spare ammo in baby food jars...

    Well I had one way back in the early 90s, all I can say is I hope you got one that works.

The store had taken in a collection of pretty rough High Standards and this was in the group. It looks pretty much perfect and is exactly the model I had been lusting after.
    Does anyone know where I can check the serial number to determine when it was made?
