Harrington & Richardson Revolver

This answer was rated:

I need the value of a Harrington & Richardson revolver in box with rounds and owner's manual. I do not have the weapon in my possession-only a photo that I can send. I have to value it for my father's estate. I think it has the word "Blank" on the barrel and "Made in U.S.A" also says STR or CTR 038

gcgunsmithing :

Hi

gcgunsmithing :

how are you today?

gcgunsmithing :

lets see what i can do for you

gcgunsmithing :

i need a little more info

gcgunsmithing :

if you could get me all the dtails possible about it like writing on the barrel serial number any other writing

gcgunsmithing :

i could better assist you

Customer:

Hi there. I think I have figured out it is a 38 caliber starter pistol

Customer:

it says STR 038 BLANK MADE in U.S.A on the barrel

Customer:

I have a photo of the gun in a box. Unfortunately, this is an estate issue with my stepmother who is in possession of the gun and I couldn't take it out of the house

gcgunsmithing :

so is it a blank gun or anormal 38?

gcgunsmithing :

see if you can send me the photo

Customer:

It says "Blank" from what I can tell. so it's a starter pistol but the ones I see online are all 22 caliber

Customer:

how do I send a photo?

gcgunsmithing :

well they also made blank firing guns

gcgunsmithing :

there should be a paper clip icon somewhere

Customer:

Full Size Image

gcgunsmithing :

ahh ha

Customer:

are you a former police officer? My husband is also and we both teach criminal justice at Marshall University!

gcgunsmithing :

yes this is a 38 blank firing gun

gcgunsmithing :

there isn't too much litterature about these but i'll see what ican do for you hold on

Customer:

ok thanks! just an approximate value will do just have to submit it to probate court

gcgunsmithing :

i would put the value of this gun with the box and all the accessories at $150- 250 given that

gcgunsmithing :

its missing the orange cap in the front that signifies a blank gun and even the most sought after H&R revolvers don't go for more than 350- 375

gcgunsmithing :

hope this helped

Customer:

It certainly has. Will this be sent to me in an email?

gcgunsmithing :

gcgunsmithing :

thank you

Customer:

ok sounds good. Thank you!
