Hello!

I couldn't believe what I found after I restored this H&R 922 First model, first variation. I was going to test fire it, and I noticed the chambers were too large for a .22LR cartridge. The cylinder and frame have the same serial #, 145341 on the frame, and 41 on the cylinder. I tried several more .22LR cylinders, and I found that none of them would fit this revolver. I then inserted a .22WMRF cartridge and it fit the chamber diameter, but wouldn't go all the way in because of a shoulder in the chamber. I then inserted a .22WRF cartridge and it chambered perfectly. I did not fire it because it has 9 chambers, and if it was bored out to fit a .22WRF cartridge, I wanted to be sure it was safe to shoot. It locks up like a new revolver, and indexes perfectly.

I can only believe that this revolver was made at the factory to shoot .22WRF ammo. Has anyone ever heard of an H&R 922 first model, first variation being chambered for .22WRF?

The H&R 926 was never made in .22WRF. The earliest model of the .22 Special 7-shot was made in .22WRF. That's the only model revolver I can remember that H&R chambered in .22WRF.

elsewhere is gunnnaucttion...correct my spelling.

217✭✭I stand corrected. I forgot about the model 999 Sportsman in .22WRF. I still stand by my original statement that the model 926 was not chambered for the .22WRF, but the .22WMRF. That list has some errors. I don't know where you got it, but the H&R .22 Special was a model of a firearm, and didn't mean it shot .22WRF ammunition. The .22 Special that chambered .22WRF ammo was roll-marked 22 W.R.F. CTG.

Thanks for the input!

That is the correct calibers for the H&R model 650. We're talking about the H&R revolvers that are chambered for .22WRF.
