I have a H&R Double Action, Model # 190438CAL, It has 38 S&W CTGE on the flute and 34473 on the butt. Can not remove the hand grip. I would like to have it repaired.

Serial number can be found under the left hand grip at the bottom of the handle for guns made 1890-1906. You have to remove the grip to access. I also have one in like new condition and am looking for a value also.
Hope this helps.

I would also like to know the value of this snub nose?

This is too weird! One of these revolvers just came into my possession yesterday. We stumbled onto a cache of arms packed away by my father in law many years ago. I too would like to know the value.

I have a gun like this but, it does not have any numbers on it at all. Nothing has been ground off of it. How much is a gun like this worth?
