Hi people,
Nice forum....
I am a newb here so here i go..
I have a Harrington & Richardson Topper Model 158 20 gauge shotgun. It has the snap on forend barrel hook up...
This is what the gun says on the side..
TOPPER MODEL 158
Harrington & Richardson, INC.
AC US PAT. 2876576 (there isn't any other numbers on it)
Could anyone tell me when this gun was made? I also need a complete forend, the wood part, the clip inside, the forend spacer.... it has the snap on barrel. I would also like to purchase a .22 barrel and a 30-30 barrel for the same gun.

I also have a Harrington & Richardson Topper Model I think 88?
the numbers are blurry...It s a 12 gauge 3" mod
Could anyone tell me when this gun was made...
here is the serial number AU679301
Thank you in advance for all of your help. Happy gunning.

The 158 was manufactured between 1962-74, when the model designation was changed to an 058. I see no mention of any rifle barrels made for it. As far as the parts needed; there were certainly a lot of these guns made, I would think you could find something. However, the value of the gun itself is not high[$50 range,depending on condition],so there may not be much interest in replacement parts.
I could find no reference to a model 88. I did find a 188. Made until 1961,the stock and forend were colored,black,red,yellow,blue,green,PINK,or purple. There was also a model 198 listed,which changed to 098 in 1974 as well.
Luck,
Jim
