i just acquired a h&r 22 cal 9 shot pistol over the internet a couple of days ago i had aquestion about the cylinder i collect these pistols i have about 6 or 7 model 922 and model 929 the cylinder looks like it is for a model 929 because the center part slides in and out to eject the casings all at once not like the model 922 knocking them out one at a time the guy i bought it from said it was made in 1959 i thought all the 922 models did the same function it looks like you can use the cylinder rod to do the function serial #V13380 on bottom of grip cylinder has 2 and 6 stamped on it is the right cylinder or do i have to find the right one ? thanks forgot to add it has blond grips and barrel length is 2 inches

    Recommend you let a gunsmith check it over and repair it if needed.

    Take a look at the mainspring located under the hand grip panels. The spring has a plastic top piece that will brake and the gun handles just like you described. You can order a spring and replace it. Or if uncomfortable take it to a gunsmith.
    Very fun gun to shoot.

    Floyd nailed it!
    Had the same problems with my model 922, and one of my 999's
    Ordered new mainsprings from numrich, and no more problems!
    If I can replace them, I am sure you can too.
