My copy of Flayderman's Guide says there are no books devoted to the arms of Frank Wesson and his successor companies, but I have a very old copy of this reference and I believe there has been at least one published since then, possibly by B. Goforth. Do a web search for him and maybe something will come up.

Your Flayderman's Guide completely missed one book on the H&R, by author Joseph Vorsiek.

Harrington & Richardson Arms Co., A Short Illustrated History of194 pages, about 8 1/2" x 11" glossy soft-cover in full color. Newly reprinted with permission.And there i the book Mr Goforth i working on.

As of mid-January 2011: the Goforth book is in final stages of completion before printing begins. It should be on the shelves within 3 months, or less. This book will be the first of its kind, dealing ONLY with H&R Firearms made between the period 1871 and 1986. It will be comprehensive and have quite a few pictures.

What is information on a Leader 28 cal revolver?

Leader was a trade name used by C.S. Shattuck, Hatfield, Mass (1880-1890), Hopkins & Allen, Norwich, CT (1868-1915), and Harrington & Richardson, Worcester, Mass (1874-c.1980). Are you sure it is a 28 caliber? This was a common size for percussion guns, but I cannot find any percussion revolvers by any of these manufacturers. I also find no references to any .28 cartridges.

Do revolvers have smooth bores?

MOST revolvers are not smoothbores, but have rifled barrels. A very few revolvers were made as SHOT pistols, and have smoothbores. These are rather rare collectors items, and require special registration with the BATFE as an "Any Other Weapon"- or AOW.

Where can I find information about 22 caliber Harrington and Richardson revolver serial number S23054?

Start at your local library. Well, that's one place to go - check a copy of the "Blue Book of Gun Values" by Steve Fjestad - look under the Harrington & Richardson Inc. identification section. You'll need to determine model. With that "S" prefix it could be a pre 1940 Hinged frame, 9 shot Single Action Sportsman, or it could be any of as many as a dozen other models made in 1956. Big difference there.
