NICE Harrington & Richardson HAMMERLESS .38 S&W 5 Shot Concealed Carry 1911
Top Break Double Action HAMMERLESS Revolver C&R
Here we present a Harrington & Richardson Top-Break Double Action Hammerless Revolver in .38 S&W, made circa 1911 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, .38 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.
The top of the barrel is marked “HARRINGTON & RICHARDSON ARMS CO./WORCESTER, MASS. U.S.A”. The left side of the barrel is marked “38 CAL S&W CTGE”.
The overall condition is Fine. The action is strong and smooth. The bore is in great shape with nice rifling. The markings are sharp. The numbers match throughout. Here is a great revolver from the beginning of the eventful 20th Century!
