I am trying to id this firearm that a friend, who inherited it from his father. It is a H&R .32cal break-barrel revolver, with an auto eject, and a 3.25" barrel. The numbers on the cylinder match the numbers on the from under the (plastic?) grips. 475-250, but all the information that I am able to find to id an estimated year range went a few different ways.

Also, does any know of a good source for replacement parts for these? The advancing star on the ejector is worn, and the cylinder does not rotate very well. other than that, she is a solid piece.

Any help that you can give is greatly appreciated.

My father had one of those, also worn with broken parts, as did my uncle. Their major attribute was that they were cheap and plentiful back in the day. Not worth fixing, not considered safe to shoot..."suicide specials".
