Default New to me H&R pre model 195 single shot.

Got this beauty yesterday. I've had a hankering for one of these for years but found them in rough shape and/or over priced. A shout out for Collectors Firearms in Houston Texas. A real nice and professional deal was done with quick and free shipping.
I ordered a repro of the original directions for this gun but won't get it for about another week. Does anyone have experience with this model as I need to adjust the rear sight slightly but can't find the proper directions to do so.

I like that! Been on the lookout for one in that condition for a while.

Sorry can't help with your sight question but please, please let us know how it shoots!

Bryan

Oh it shoots like a dream. I was shooting tight groups in the 10 ring once I figured the hold with standard velocity CCI.
The trigger is adjustable but it seems perfect to me right now.

Thatís beautiful. These early competition single shots are just something special. I donít have one but would get one if it looked like yours and I could afford it.
