    Sure.

    I did before, in fact. I like these things. Mine is the model 949.

    Its a double action revolver with a single action grip. :cool:

    No, but I would offer him $75-80.

    Solidly built firearms (if not previously buggered with as many seem to be).

    Horrible DA for the most part but decent SA.

    The 949 shown above was actually my very first handgun at the age of 12 or 13.

    They are no Single Six but for the money they are decent plinkers.

    I would jump on it if it was a solid revolver. (not buggered up)

    Yeah, $100 is a good price if its decent.

    All the models on Gunbroker are going for more than that. Some are in worse condition than that appears to be.

    no_Only because I have no need for one.If I needed one, 100 would be pushing it.About 75 is all Id pay as well.They were popular awhile back.

    Those are decent old shooters though.They make nice bunny busters during rabbit season.I know many raccoon hunters that carry one for dispatching raccoons.9 shots is better than 6 when those boogers get ahold of a dog.

    I probably would if I didn't have a 22 pistol already or if I just wanted one for grins and giggles. As long as it checked out, I don't see why not.

    I like mine better than my Heritage Roughrider and they go for near $200.

    Bac- I used to have a revolver exactly like that but it was stainless. I believe it was the model 950. VERY nice revolver for the money. I believe I paid 150 for it.

    As for the OP, I would snatch it right up. IMO you cant have enough .22LRs, and even so, if you didnt like the thing you could turn around and sell it pretty quick.

    I also had a 622 and a 922, much like yours but mine was the "snubby" version. It had a small grip and a 2 1\2 inch barrel. I think they make pretty nice firearms, as long as they arent abused.

    I have no use for it. I'd rather buy ammo.

    I bought one at a local Gander Mountain 4 years ago for $69 plus tax. I shot it a few times and resold it for what I had into it. It was not very accurate. I'd rather spend more money and buy something better. A used Ruger MK I or II can be found for less than $200 in my area. $100 is to much. I'd consider it for $75 if you really need a cheap .22 to store some where.

    Sure it looks like its in real good shape, and a H&R .22 would make a nice plinker.

    Also while you are there you can talk to the pawn shop owner's daughter again :whistling:

    No, more like $50. I've had one and it's not a 949. After taking the cylinder out and punching the cases out, with the cylinder pin, you will tire of it pretty quick, I think, maybe,

    Yes I would. In a heart beat too. I will pretty much buy any gun that chamber in common caliber and will function safely, in that price.
