Default Misc Grips Info for H&R Revolvers

Some more info from my "digital collection" of info related to Grips for H&R revolvers.

For Christmas this year, I (finally!) just got THE BOOK on H&R Firearms by the late Bill Goforth, and I am really enjoying it. There are many more patents in there on grips, and other functional parts, etc. of these old top-breaks and other firearms too.

Shameless plug: If you like or collect the old H&R firearms, the book is a must-have (and I have no connections to the publisher or seller.)

Here's some info on Target Grips, as an alternative to the smaller standard grips. Several of the top-breaks in my collection have these:


And here's a rather odd and unique target grip adapter... Never seen one of these in the real world yet:


And lastly, here's a "Design Patent" protecting how the grips were marked with the unique company-designed target logo:


Enjoy.

Old No 7, here are a couple of pics you might enjoy. Both of these are from my collection.

Here's a blued Premier:




And then my blued Auto Ejector. Interesting in that both of them are blued. As you know, about %95 of H&Rs' pre-war revolvers were nickle.



With best regards,

Nice ones Jeff. I'll bet the oversized grips feel good on the Auto Ejecting model; to me, the standard grips are a tad too small.
