Item Description

Harrington & Richardson 1908 Shotgun 12ga

Model 1908

Make: Harrington & Richardson

Model:Model 1908

Action Type: Single Shot Break Barrel

Caliber: 12ga

Barrel: 32”

Length: 47.5”

Sight / Optics:
Front bead sight.

Stock / Grips:
The wood stock and forearm appear to be original to the gun.
The stock is cracked is multiple areas, near the upper and lower tangs.
Stock is still securely in place, despite the cracks.

Bore Condition:
There is some rust on the smooth bore.
I ran a cleaning snake through the bore a few times and that did manage to remove a lot of the surface rust.
There are a lot on online guides and videos, that walk you through the steps of removing rust from bores.

All of the functions are operating correctly.

Overall Condition:
The serial number starts with “A”, so online guides puts this shotgun as being a 1940's production.
Most of the finish form the receiver has worn off.
There are also signs of previous surface rust on the receiver.
The bluing on the barrel is in better condition, but not perfect.
Barrel had surface rust on it when we got it, but we did manage to clean most of that off.
The rust did cause some discoloration to the bluing.
A more thorough cleaning is needed, in order to remove all of the surface rust.
There is some slight up and down movement when the barrel is in the locked position.
The movement is not excessive and seems to be within normal tolerances.
Hammer cocks back properly and the trigger works great.
Firing pin is intact and moves freely.
Matching serial numbers on the forearm, barrel, and receiver.

Magazines & Accessories:
Does not include any accessories.

We try to have an absolute (.01 starting bid, no reserve) auction, at least once a week.
Be sure to check back and see what's new.

Local Pick
Yes, we do offer local pickup for Colorado residents, Monday through Saturday. Sales tax does apply, but we do not charge any additional fees for performing the background check and transferring the firearm to you.
Sorry, but we only transfer firearms that we sell, and cannot do transfers for you.
