IJ and H&R question

Postby Papa G » Sat Apr 22, 2017 3:56 pm

I was wondering if any one here knows what IJ and H&R did with their manufacturing machinery, tooling and other gun making stuff when they stopped making revolvers??? Its a shame no one picked up on it and continued making the revolvers. :(

I've been to a gun shop in Gardner Mass (last place where the H&R revolvers were made) and asked that very question. Nobody could tell me. :cry:

I think the last revolvers made were the New England Firearms version of the H&Rs and those got discontinued sometime in the 1990s.
