Harrington & Richardson 20 Gauge Shotgun "Project"

Harrington & Richardson 20 Gauge Shotgun "Project"

A quick video on an H&R single shot 20 gauge shotgun I purchased recently. I have been looking for one similar to this one for a good price to be used in a future project. Brings back fond childhood memories of getting one identical to this at Christmas as a 10 year old child

    That is awesome that you found the same fire arm that you owned!!
    Does it react the same way as your first one?
    Bet you cleaned ‘er up all good and had it shooting like a champ the day before the first day of shooting it!!
    Have a good one,
    And thanks 4 sharing your Experience!!

    That was my first shotgun when I was a kid. I love the case hardening color on the receiver of my old gun. I need to find a good used one for my son (and me) good find

    I have an identical gun but mine is a NEF Pardner model. It’s a great gun. Very well made and a lot of fun.

    I have one of the first ones like this, I don’t know how old it is but my grandpa bought it used when I was around 6 and I’m 57 now, he died and left it to me in 85. Mine is the older model it don’t have a screw in the forearm.



  7. J MAC on November 7, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    It was the first one I ever owned as well. I love it also. Mine is the black wood with silverish trigger/hammer area.

    A family member across country had mine for about 30+ years and I always remembered it, but I just got it back last year, and it was literally frozen shut. I oiled it down and got the action to break open. Just trying to figure out when I originally had it, as I know it was early or mid 80’s…..but it brings back memories. The main memoriy is vivid. It was lthe actual first shot I ever took with it! I took down a male Mallard on the Colorado River. I can almost count how many blades of milk weed I pushed the barrel through. They seemed 6ft tall, but were likely only three or four feet….lol. Very vivid.

  11. Nellson Stout on November 7, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    I’m thinking about taking my old h&k 20 gauge, paying the $200 tax stamp and turning it into an sbs

  14. David Potter on November 7, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    My first gun! Brings back good memories.



  15. grishfish on November 7, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    I’ve got the 12g Pardner ($130 bucks new) and it’s one of my absolute favorite guns. A simple bead sight and an superb trigger, not to mention a very affordable platform, and I’m a happy camper.



  16. Blank Reg on November 7, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Beauty stock.



  17. oddhauze on November 7, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    A close friend just sold me one of these little suckers today, and I absolutely love it. Best $90 I’ve ever spent.



  18. TheOutdoorsman on November 7, 2021 at 9:53 pm

  19. LawnRanger II on November 7, 2021 at 9:53 pm

  20. John Marrufo on November 7, 2021 at 9:54 pm

  21. Leah Murphy on November 7, 2021 at 9:54 pm

  26. sLyM Angxlz on November 7, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    my big brother has this gun and I shot it I love this gun



  27. Marcelo Sousa on November 7, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    Melhor calibre, calibre 20



  28. Jeffrey Elliott on November 7, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    Yep I got one which was my very first gun back in Christmas of 78 and it was made in 77 and I was 13 but the real ironic and sentimental value of having my H&R Topper Model 58 in 12ga. modified choke is that it was the model number 58 which was the year my mom & papa were married 1958 Sept. 12th so yeah I will never part with that shotgun and I’ve bought Short Lane gun adapters to shoot various other calibers out of that one gun and it’s the most versatile gun I own !!!!



  29. ParasidicGeneration on November 7, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    just got one and i love it



  30. Peter Duffy on November 7, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    i got a real nice topper in 12g was going to modify could not bring myself to working on it as it was so nice so went and got a beat up nef 20 and made a truck gun out of her



  31. Timothy White on November 7, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    is the 12 gauge version hard to find for a single shot?



  32. Maddawwg45 on November 7, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    my 13th birthday I got a 20 gauge topper model I had that gun for years and years and living in Arizona at the time it took care of a lot of rabbits and quail and dove and squirrels when I moved to oklahoma I loved that gun wish I woulda hung on to it for my boys 20 gauge is the ultimate rabbit killer theres very little a 20 gauge cant do



  33. Kurtis Kennedy on November 7, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    this was my first gun while kids were I live were getting 22lrs I got a 20 gauge



  34. Justin B. on November 7, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    Are the new ones any good?



  35. John Grytbakk on November 7, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    Such a fun little shotgun. …MUST get me one 🙂



  36. Noah Koenig on November 7, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    mine was my Grandpas, never really looked at it until now. mine has a DAMASCUS receiver



  37. Eudes González on November 7, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    I need to make me get one of those to Colombia.



  38. vpsaline on November 7, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    Why don’t these single shots have screw in chokes???



  39. Danny Leung on November 7, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    whats the difference between a pardner and a topper?



  40. Lex5576 on November 7, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    Remington needs to seriously consider resuming production of these H&R shotguns.  There’s talk that production will resume in Alabama sometime in the future, but now it looks doubtful.  But it doesn’t make sense to kick H&R to the curb, there’s a big demand for single shot shotguns for people that want to train their kids to shoot on a budget, or first time gun owners.  And choices for single shots are dying off……Rossi single shots no longer being imported…….an embargo on Baikal products…….and Turkish shotguns are so crazy in design.   These H&Rs are rock solid and simple, inexpensive, and American made.



  41. Josh Myers on November 7, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    I cut the barrel down on my 12 gauge and painted the stocks camo and put a survival kit in the stock.



  42. Ernest Walden on November 7, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    Out of all the guns I had thrugh the years I grab my single shot shotgun when I in the woods. Got mine for Xmas in 1977. And never had a Xmas sence then that I was so happy to get a presant. I wouldn’t trade that old gun for anything. I got my son one for his 10th Xmas and just the look on his face was priceless. I’m sure my dad was the same way. 🇺🇸😀👍👍



  43. crabblike on November 7, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    Mrs. Crabblike has shown interest in shooting clays, which neither of us do at the moment. She has only recently moved up from the .22lr to the Mini-14 and seems to not be afraid of that, except the noise still makes her flinch, but is getting better.
    How much difference in recoil is there between a 12ga and the 20? I have a Mossberg 500 12 gauge but there’s NO way I’m letting her shoot that. I can’t find a 20ga to try without buying one.



  44. david gaspari on November 7, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    did you put a scope on that gun?



  45. hunter mckinney on November 7, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    I have the same gun and ironically got it for the same price



  46. Nellson Stout on November 7, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    I’m thinking about taking my old h&k 20 gauge, paying the $200 tax stamp and turning it into an sbs



  47. Jeremy Stewart on November 7, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    that was my first gun. still have it and couldn’t tell you how many squirrels  it has under its belt haha great gun 



  48. Michael Geary on November 7, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    My dad has the exact same gun and I use it when we go hunting. it was his first gun



  49. cazador R.Z on November 7, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    Hello greetings … you would be so kind to tell me how much you cost your shot harrington – richardson



  50. Bigbobg on November 7, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    I don’t know what you planned to do to it but it looks great as is. $60 is a steal. You did good.
