    Found the below on Grey Beard Outdoors Forum. Some folks on there seems to have written the book on H&R's (Literally - sells for $99). According to this, your revolver looks to have been made in 1958 as both the V and U reflect that. Probably someone will be along directly that knows a lot more than I about this model, and will correct me if needed. I researched it because I really like it. Nice revolver!

    I have it's twin brother, the Model 940. It has the round barrel instead of flat sides. I'll get in the safe in a little bit and see when it was made. Probably the same year. I've always wanted a 939 to compliment my 940 but have always been outbid on GB.

    Mine was made in 1974 and I bought it used in 1976 for $60.

    Oh, I can imagine. I have a self imposed limit of $350 for a quality piece. That's why I keep losing. They usually wind up going north of $400. Yours in the original box and looking new, oh yeah, I can imagine. But hey, sometimes money isn't the issue.
