The gun belonged to my dad. He passed a few years ago at the age of 91. It might have been at the house but my stepmother and I are not on speaking terms. Even if I did ask her about it she would probably want to charge me for it. ;)

I guess maybe if it is there I might find it after she dies but I suspect she has probably disposed of it in one way or another.

Have you tried Gun Parts Corporation? I think they are still around.... they have some unreal parts bins and a catalog that is pretty extensive.

A couple sources for parts

Sir,

I know this is an old thread, I'm new to the forum so forgive me. If you still have the pistol and are looking for the cylinder, here's a couple links for you to check out.
Poppert's Gun Parts

Miga Gun Parts

I have a nice old H&R 904 revolver, looks a lot like yours. I found a set of target grips and a couple other parts I picked up for spares through miga gun parts. Check back with them from time to time as their inventory changes. If you don't see what your looking for, shoot them an email [email protected] or give them a call at 912-884-5616 that's how I found my grips.

I picked my revolver up from a friend of mine, I ran into him one day and he told me his Dad passed away and his Mom had turned the gun over to the Sheriff's Dept. If someone in the family didn't put it on a permit or if they didn't sell it within another month it was going to be destroyed. I paid $125 for the gun, it was as new in the box with the original papers and hang tag.

His Dad had bought it new back in the 70's, fired nine rounds through it, cleaned it, put it away and never fired it again. The oil had dried to a thick varnished gum, I had a hard time opening the cylinder and cocking the hammer. I didn't want to tear it down so I removed the grips, soaked it with CLP then blew the crud out with an blow gun. I repeated this process over a week until all the old gunk washed away.

I fired nine rounds through it, it's set in my safe since and I'll keep her that way.

Thanks for the links. I'll check them periodically. I have also been checking Numrich (Gun Parts Corp.) regularly.

Very nice H&R. Thanks for sharing.

I wasn't really planning to sell. I was hoping to find a replacement cylinder. I would like to use it for plinking target practice. I need all of the inexpensive practice I can get.

I am located near Dallas, Texas. I will be in Olypmia, WA for the next two weeks April 15-18 and 22-25.

Send me a PM and I will give you my email address.

Paul Jackson @ C.S.A. Gunworks Bartlesville, OK

I am not 100% sure if he has the exact part you are looking for, but he has a pretty large collection of Iver Johnson and other obscure parts as well. Might not be a bad idea to contact him. Paul Jackson @ C.S.A. Gunworks Bartlesville, OK Phone 918-337-0423 he is a nice guy and if he has the part he won't gouge you on the price. You can also get more information on CSA Gunworks on facebook. Anyway give him a try and good luck I hope you get your gun working.
