I thought that the answer to my topbreak .22 quest would be a Harrington Richardson 999 Sportsman. That bubble burst pretty quick. My first impression was that the revolve was smaller and more light weight than images suggested. The hammer had side play , the da trigger was much worse than I had anticipated , (I was not expecting much , but UGH...) , the takedown mechanism was flimsy. I got tired of being stung in the face on a regular basis. I moved it along and replaced it with an Iver Johnson Sealed Eight Super Shot. It is everything I was looking for in a well built old topbreak. Happy ending pictured.
