Harrington & Richardson popper gun ?

Postby mirage1 » Sun Apr 01, 2007 8:08 am

I have & old Harrington & Richardson single shot that I use as a popper gun for retriever training & the hammer will not stay back in the cock position
Is this something a non gunsmith might be able to fix or best to bring it in ?

do you feel any sort of click at all when you pull the hammer back? if not it could be a internal spring problem. sot sure how the H&Rs work, but that sounds like a sear return spring problem or a rounded sear edge.
Shoot'em close. Less to pick.

They might get my guns, but they'll get the bullets first !

Unless you have been inside one before, I'd take it to a smith. I'm not saying you or anyone else can't work on the HRs, because they're simple for the most part. It would e best to get someone professional to mess with something safety related such as that, because you'll probably feel mor confident about that in the end. The entire trigger/hammer group has about five or six parts in it, including the hammer and trigger guard, so you could just get the other few parts and take them to the smith and let him show you how to install the stuff, if you wanted. :biggrin:
Here's a thought: Let the ducks work and decoy.
