Help With H&R Pull Pin Revolver

I've been looking for several hours yesterday and today online for any information "mostly interested in when it was made" about this .22lr. I've not even found a picture that looks exactly like it. I gather there was at least 7 Editions/Versions, I know it's old just don't know how old. Vickie's brother found the H&R and an old .38 revolver hidden in his mom's closet last week. He kept the .38 and gave me the .22lr. He said he remembers his grandfather using it to slaughter hogs among other things. I'm no expert but I'm pretty sure it is no longer safe to be fired.
Here's what I know.
Harrington & Richardson Pull Pin .22lr Revolver Model 922
6" Barrel: On Barrel> H & R Arms Company H & R 922
Worchester Mass U S A
Serial number on the front grip strap "C5408

It looks rough, I'm not good at judging condition but I would say only maybe 50-70% tops. All bluing is almost gone, has some handling marks and light surface rust in a place or to. It has been stored in a old leather holster. It is well worn and used but not well cared for, it was a tool like a hoe or shovel, not a prized possession.

I'm thinking it was made between 1925-1940??

Arland, I checked my Gun Digest collection and see the H&R 922 listed in the 1960 issue for $30.95. Did not check any later issues.

My next oldest issue is 1946, but it only shows S&W and Colt revolvers.

Nice score Arland, when I was 5 or 6ish I started shooting a gun just like that that my dad's uncle had when we went to my grandfathers farm. I'd bet it's was made around 1940. I might have a old picture of myself shooting it at my mothers house, damn, that brings back memories.

IDK, I think it's older than 1960. I found a pic of one from 1954 and the front sight is flat on top. Mine is a half moon thin blade. They were inexpensive for sure.
