Unique Factory Mismatched H&R "Bull Dog" Revolver 4" Barrel

Serial #20433, 32 RF, 4 1/2" octagon barrel with an about good bore showing light pitting and oxidation with strong rifling. This is an interesting special order or employee put-together "Bull Dog" revolver manufactured by Harrington & Richardson built with the correct rim fire hammer and frame and a seemingly incorrect "32 S. & W. CTGE" marked barrel. According to W.E. Goforth in his book H&R Arms Company 1871-1986 the "Bull Dog" line of solid frame, rim fire revolvers were only produced with 2" inch octagonal barrels and the "American" line of revolvers were only produced in center fire with a range of barrel sizes that included 4 ?? inches. The gun is in excellent condition with metal surfaces retaining virtually all, 96-97% original nickel finish showing some scattered very small flakes toning to gray-brown patina and overall light handing marks. The triggerguard retains a similar amount of original bright blue and the hammer shows attractive dark case-hardened colors throughout. The black checkered hard rubber crown motif grips remain in near excellent condition showing a few mild scattered handling marks and have the aluminium grip escutcheons. The action seems to function well mechanically with solid timing and lock-up. A one of a kind revolver in excellent condition that would be at home in the most advanced H&R collection. FFL or C&R
