I have recently purchased a Harrington and Richardson Model 158 Topper 12 gauge single shot. I was wanting to find out when it was made. I looked all over the internet and can't seem to find anything that tell me for sure. Serial number is AG6205***. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

As a H&R / NEF enthusiast, I can direct you to two sites where the gurus hang out. Both of these have a section just for H&R / NEF

Marlin owners - http://www.marlinowners.com/
Graybeard outdoors - http://www.go2gbo.com/forums/index.php

1980.


Here's a link to the FAQ section on the H&R Forum. If you scroll down a little ways, there's a complete date/prefix chart.

Thanks.
I'm taking a leap here assuming this applies to all their old shotguns?
I have an old H&R single shot shotgun that has a serial number starting with AL, so 1973?

Two letter prefix starting with N or H, second letter.....

A= 1986
B= 1987
C= 1988
D= 1989
E= 1990
F= 1991
G= 1992
H= 1993
I= 1994
J= 1995
k= 1996
L=1997
M=1998
N=1999
P=2000
R=2001
S=2002
T=2003
U=2004
V=2005
W=2006
X=2007
Y=2008 serial number prefixes changed in May 2008 and on, CBA for SB2 and CAC for SB1, the only source for build year is to call and ask (866)776-9292.

Looks like 1995.

Prefix AH is 1971.

Did a quick look on Gunbroker, and there were several asking from $160-$200. Don't know if they'll sell for that. Around here they bring ~$100-$125.

1965 AB

1967 AD
1968 AE

1970 AG

Isn't it amazing, that you can repeatedly list date codes, and STILL people will ask "when was mine made"?
