Hi Bert

I have a 410 similar to the middle one on your post 10993, can’t find model number. Serial on rear of trigger guard is A730946

On barrel inside when opened is serial 730946.

Are you able to provide a model number and manufacturing date? In good condition, any idea on value.

I am in Calgary, Alberta phone number 1.403.288.3959 if needed.

Thanks for your help

I have no idea what you are referring to by “post 10993” ?  Please explain further.

I do not believe that there were any Winchester .410 bore shotguns made with a serial number “A730946”.  You will need to provide pictures of the gun before I can attempt to ID it for you.

Hi Bert

 

You are correct. Did further research and found the gun is a Harrington & Richardson manufactured in 1941. Odd that manufacturer and model number not on the firearm.

 

Sorry for the inconvenience.

No problem.,

Harrington & Richardson was a relatively small company, and by the year 1941 they were on a rapid decline as a firearms manufacturing company (though they did not fully shut down until 1986).  It was typical on the lesser expensive models to not mark then very well or serialize them.  Surprisingly, your gun is serialized.

Per the information I found, the “A” serial number prefix was used in the year 1940. That stated, I cannot attest to its accuracy.
