H&R 622

Hey all,

I was looking for a truck/woods beater that I didn't care about getting rusty, scratched, etc. I absolutely love my 50th anniversary MK II, but it's sooooo purdy, I don't want to mar the finish with holster wear or my clumsy butt landing on it.

The price of all guns has gone up, but I didn't think I did too bad at $150 for a fully functional 622 with minor surface rust on the cylinder and barrel on one side. Poor gun probably sat in a drawer in a kitchen somewhere. I think I'll polish the surface rust off, cold blue it, throw it in a holster, and see how the rabbits fare! It seems that the mainspring strut is prone to breaking, but Numrich seems to have plenty in stock. I think I'll order 6 of those and a couple other small parts and I'll have a gun to last me some time.

Most H&R revolvers were/are low quality/low price guns.
Sort of like if High Point made a line of revolvers that Home Depot carried under the Ryobi brand name....type of gun.

I have a couple of them.
One is an ancient snub nose pull pin that beloonged to my late father in law, and the other is a .22/.22mag "Convertible" I bought 30 years ago.

They work & for the price & for a short time, they work pretty well.
They wear out parts pretty quick though.

BTW - as you've already found out - the bluing is crude at best. Make sure you keep it well oiled &/or wiped down.

You shouldn't have any trouble wrecking havoc on the bunny population.
(poor bunnies....I like rabbits,,,had a pet one as a kid.)
