    Yes it would appear that research on early H&R guns can be difficult at best........they seem to have been consistently inconsistent with naming and numbering conventions. In my youth, Dad had a 49'er that I used to shoot a lot. Fortunately, Dad happened to have it with him when our ranch house was broken into and our family weapons were stolen. So this H&R .22LR, Model 949 is one of the very few family heirloom guns that I have today.....

    Was made aware of this thread by another member Jim Goldthwaite today......I told him I picked up an H&R Trapper Model today at my LGS and he said someone else had started a thread about one........so here's mine!!

    The gun shop claims it was built back in the 1930's.....but I have no reference books that involve H&R's.

    Definitely before 1930 and the caliber on the barrel likely puts it after about 1905.

    To be vintage it must be older than me.

    The next handgun I buy will be the next to last handgun I ever buy.

    The coins were tossed in to show relative petiteness. In fact the silver pesos may be worth more than the gun.

    What makes it rare is it still works .

    All joking aside, that's probably a fun little handgun...........a lot of fun for not a lot of money.
