HARRINGTON & RICHARDSON Hammerless TOP BREAK Double Action .32 REVOLVER C&R
Turn of the Century Double Action Hammerless Revolver
Here we present a Harrington & Richardson Top-Break Double Action Hammerless Revolver in .32 S&W, made circa the turn of the century in Worcester, Massachusetts. In 1875 Gilbert Harrington and former Frank Wesson employee, William Augustus Richardson, formed the new Harrington & Richardson Company. In 1888 the firm was incorporated as The Harrington & Richardson Arms Company. Their original capital investment was $75,000. Harrington was president, Richardson was treasurer, and George F. Brooks was secretary. This 5-shot, .32 S&W revolver would have been ideal to keep in a pocket or a belt-holster for self-defense in the turbulent early 20th Century, or possibly even law enforcement. Its hammerless design makes it smooth and less prone to snag on the draw, just what one wants when concealing.
This example showcases a bright nickel finish, nice case colors and blued accent. The bore is bright with sharp rifling. Both grips are missing. The action does not function. The trigger does not return due to a broken of missing return spring. The star ejector does not function. All numbers match. This would be a great candidate for fixing up!
