Harrington and Richardson was in the business of making firearms from 1871 to 1986. From the period past the First World War to the end of its manufacturing run, the company produced many variations of .22 revolvers with model numbers ranging from 900 to 999. Some of the very similar firearms it produced had no model numbers (for a time) or were labeled with a name, such as the Sportsman. These little guns were sturdy, well made, and reasonably accurate. Many are in use today and still great little guns.

    Excellent presentation. Thanks. 👍☕😎

    I have a Nef R92 same as yours. I’m looking for a leather holster for mine but having a hard time finding one. Will the H&R 900 holster fit the Nef? Or will any 2.5 in j frame holster fit it

  3. Benjamin Wilkin on May 5, 2023 at 4:07 am

    Would there be a problem dry firing with the cylinder out? Firing pin wouldn’t hit anything, right?

    Very classic revolver!

    I would say that opening is a witness window to see if you have live ammo left in the weapon without having to remove the cylinder. Rotate and look to see if the rim primer is dented. Had one of these years ago without the right side opening. Might have to try and buy another one.

    If it’s like mine it’s just a window for checking if it’s loaded. Yes you are correct in that they tried to keep cost low but make a safe and good quality product.
    Enjoy. Oh and btw it’s Harrington and Richardson Not Richard’s. Thanks for your videos. I’m with you on the caliber issue. No one’s extra holes in them regardless of size. Lol.

    Just picked one of these up great carry gun little and sufficient to stop something. Would like to find some wood grips for it though.

  8. Rafael Lay on May 5, 2023 at 4:14 am

    That right side viewing port is an inspection port to check if the gun loaded or not. I have a H&R model 626 with a 2 inch barrel. They are hard to shoot the trigger pull is heavy. I can be accurate single or double at 5 yards. After that my grouping wander. It’s a good learning revolver.

  9. Randy Blackburn on May 5, 2023 at 4:18 am

    The old H&R top break 9 shot 22 that breaks open like a double barrel is the coolest . I had one 47 years ago and sold it like a DA

  10. Pushingfoward on May 5, 2023 at 4:20 am

    Are these 22s loud ? You know many decibels they are ?

  11. MPGunther1 on May 5, 2023 at 4:21 am

    Very nice sir. Looks pretty "heavy duty" for a 22lr.

    I just picked a h&r model 900 with a 6 inch barrel for 279$ at my local gun store

  14. J.D. McGinn on May 5, 2023 at 4:24 am

    This is a very usable system and better than saa for me for sure. I would prefer the swing out cylinder so I won’t drop it but still this is better than saa!

  15. Devin Walsh on May 5, 2023 at 4:24 am

    What do you shoot out of this .22LR?

  16. Joe Morgan on May 5, 2023 at 4:24 am

    i love my 922 its got the scrap plastic grips its a nail driver

  17. Sierra Bravo on May 5, 2023 at 4:25 am

    I haven’t researched them heavily, but from what I know they were made from the 1930’s up until 1985 or 86. I believe that’s when NEA bought H&R.

  18. Mr. FASTB621 Mare Island on May 5, 2023 at 4:27 am

    Its a great "Get off me gun". Make a good gun to put in the bathroom. Semper Fidelis

    I have to thank you for doing this video. I was just at my local pawnbroker and he has a H&R 900 it’s a 4” with a larger grip for 235 bucks. But I watched at least 50 videos looking for the design that the 900 has. Your video is the only one so far that has explained what I was looking at earlier this week at the pawn shop.

    Como arreglo la uña tengo uno con la uña database Como El que tiene cache de color marron

  21. Gordon Deitz on May 5, 2023 at 4:33 am

    I have a H&R 929 .22 lr with a 2" barrel that was left to me.
    Does it have any significance?

  22. MidwayShooter on May 5, 2023 at 4:34 am

    Very cool little gun. Thanks for sharing it.

  23. Mike Hale on May 5, 2023 at 4:34 am

    I have h&r mod 900 with slite movment in the barrel what can I do to fix that?

  24. Garnet Guy on May 5, 2023 at 4:36 am

    These make a great little tackle box gun – snake gun. Simple but still effective.

  25. Rafael Lay on May 5, 2023 at 4:37 am

    The little slut on the right of the revolver is a viewing port to see it the gun has rounds in the cylinder. That is why you can’t load through the port. I had a model 626 and currently have a model 939.

  26. OldSchoolSC on May 5, 2023 at 4:37 am

    Cool little revolver! My 900 has the 3 1/2" barrel (4" including frame), and a bit larger grips. 100% reliable, and plenty accurate inside 10 yards. Nice to be able to shoot LR as well as shorts. Very versatile! Oh, and the ‘gate’ on the right side of the cylinder is nothing more than a window to see if it’s loaded.

  27. Sam on May 5, 2023 at 4:38 am

    These are somewhat rare. Always thought it was strange, but from a manufacturing point of view, it’s more economical cheaper than a swing out cylinder but faster to reload than a loading gate model/remove the pin to remove cylinder models. It’s a perfect inbetween of ease of reloading and economical manufacture. But I’d rather just spend maybe the few more bucks on the swing out cylinder. Also the cutout that resembles a loading gate I believe was just a window to view if the revolver was loaded or not.

  28. SCVGun on May 5, 2023 at 4:38 am

    I have several of that type. But not exactly like that with the cylinder like that. Some the entire cylinder pin comes out and you use the pin to unload the pistol. They had different barrel lengths. Some videos call that slot on the side a “witness slot”. Some you can load through that gate and some you can’t. I guess it’s when it was made. I bought my first one probably about 35 years ago and I like the old revolvers. They also made this in a 6 shot.32 long.

  29. Sand Mountain Ballistics on May 5, 2023 at 4:39 am

    The hole in that H&R is just to check and see if it is loaded

  30. BATTLE ELF on May 5, 2023 at 4:41 am

    I think Van Gogh shot himself with one of those? I think Sirhan Sirhan used one to assassinate RFK?

  31. James Burch on May 5, 2023 at 4:42 am

    Got mine from my great aunt in the early 90’s. Right after I got out the military. Unfortunately I had to use it and it saved my life.

  32. Ronnie Johnson on May 5, 2023 at 4:43 am

    I have owned one of the 900s for thirty years. Always works and isn’t too heavy. Not super accurate but it is only a snub. My wife carries it and understands you just have hit him between the belt buckle and ball cap and he should leave you alone. I also taught her no fancy purse is worth your life so shoot through it.

  33. B -5160 8 on May 5, 2023 at 4:44 am

    They look cheap. Do they feel cheap, also ?

  34. Bill Dunlap on May 5, 2023 at 4:44 am

    I have one with a swing cylinder in 8 shot.

  35. Scott F. on May 5, 2023 at 4:49 am

    Cool little wheel snubs as love em…Good stuff…

  36. Jon McKeithster on May 5, 2023 at 4:50 am

    It would seem that if you could use the peekaboo window for loading/unloading they’d potentially fall out when shooting at the moon. Very cool revolver. I’ve been wondering about the H&R Model 900 for quite a while now. Thanks for your research and coverage of it, and to your viewers for their comments.

  37. Sand Mountain Ballistics on May 5, 2023 at 4:51 am

    Have you pulled the grips off to see if they have the plastic main spring head?

  38. John Rose on May 5, 2023 at 4:57 am

    Are these double or single action ?

  39. My Lucky Day! on May 5, 2023 at 4:59 am

    Nice guns! I have the circa 1953 model 922. Exactly the same gun, only difference on mine the pin comes out separately from the wheel, and you can side cowboy load mine.
