Not really a 'gamblers pistol' per se-
Appears to have been boxed for show and tell.

It is a Harrington & Richardson ;Safety Hammerless ;
I cannot read the complete barrel inscription, but probably says-Harrington & Richardson Arms Company Worcester. Mass. U.S.A. / Pat-May 14 & Aug. 6 ’89 April 2, ’95 April 7, ‘96”.
The bottom grip serial number? Not important, but the cylinder should have the last 3 numbers of the serial number-
(The back of the cylinder is marked “XXX” (on both the extractor and the cylinder)

If it is a 38 SW- will be marked-“38 Cal S&W CTGE”

Millions were made- 1905-1920 or so.
This one appears decent shape, depending on cylinder operation and springing.

Can vary from 75.00-300.00 if it is safe to shoot.

I appears that the trigger guard has been removed, I can find no mention of a factory variant sans trigger guard. Probably safe to shoot, safe to carry is another mater...

I have never seen one sans triggerguard. I also think there is something odd to the grip on the left side. I was at an antique mall this week and they have a few old guns there, they had a similar H&R model, all complete and original I can't remember what they had on it but it was not an impressive number at all. About 3 boxes of ammo worth IIRC

Josh, No offence, but without a triggerguard that thing looks like a bad accident waiting to happen. Keep 'er locked up.
