My Brother-in-Laws Cousin Billy brought over the pistol he thought was a 7 shot H&R. It turned out to be a Model 622 6", 6 shot chambered in .22LR. Serial# has it at 1972. It has a parkerized frame, blued barrel and plastic grips (origional H&R). Overall the gun is in excellent shape. The cylender is the worst for wear, but not bad. Grips that once were white are now kind of yellow with the left being more off color than the right one. The action is tight, bore is bright. No rust, not even under the grips, and no crud buildup. Trigger pull is a little heavy but OK. Just a little bluing rub on the front of the muzzle and cylender (easy fix). I havnt shot it yet(he said he never had) and wont today as its only 26 or so...LOL. But I expect it will perform adaquatly as all H&Rs I have shot have. The Model 622 was the lowest, price wise, produced by H&R. The cylender release rod has no release as my model 922 does, just friction holds it in, and its a 51 year. Its a little larger framed pistol than my 922 4" camper model but will surfice for plinking, teaching, and carrying fishing and hunting. I gave $70 for it.
