Here is a fully traditional Harrington and Richardson M48 Topper Single Shot, manufactured in the first or second year of production of that worthy series. This shotgun comes to us from an estate in nearby Shelby County Tennessee. Left side of receiver bears the letter S beneath its Topper Model 48 / Harrington & Richardson Inc marking. From H&R’s prefix scheme, that indicates 1956. We have recently, however, had verifiable and numbered similar specimens dated from 1949 and 1950. The extractor housing beneath the barrel chamber bears a 200 range number, and we take that as the serial number. If we are correct, this is a first year production specimen. Whatever its correct manufacture date, this is a well preserved and very early Model 48 Topper, chambered in 16 gauge. Its barrel measures 28 inches, and chamber stamping reads, 16 Gauge ~ P / Full Choke, and full choke it is indeed. Muzzle diameter measures an exceptionally tight .635. That indicates Extra Full or even Super Full. This shotgun shows strong original finish with moderate detractions. Bluing is original bright blue throughout, with edge whitening around the rear area of the barrel and on the receiver, and with a moderate amount of freckling. The chief detractions is a 4 1/2 inch hairline crack on the under side of the forend, but with no separation. Forend iron insert is later manufacture factory replacement, and its screws are not correct, hence the crack most likely. Both forend and buttstock are original factory American Walnut, plain dark oil finish. Note the relatively good condition of the original red factory stamped 3/4 inch thick red recoil pad. Length of pull is the original 13 7/8 inches from the trigger face to the end of the pad. We rate this Topper as Very Good, 80 percent vicinity by our estimate, but photos ought to suffice for our shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Bore shows a pitted area about even with the forend lug. The chamber, and remainder of the barrel is smooth. What counts with this shotgun is its forward area anyway, and you can see the taper to the bore as it nears the muzzle. Breech lever and mechanism are strong and tight like they’re supposed to be. This shotgun has about 3/4 inch of right hand cant, so it will not be southpaw friendly unless it is modified. We’re offering this attractive, exceptionally bored early 16 gauge H&R Single Shot for only $ 169.00. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> $20 flat fee lower 48 states; $60 Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico, UPS Ground with full insurance coverage.
