I have a H&R Topper Model 158 With a .30-30, 410, & 20 ga barrels. This gun will NEVER be for sale, but I would like to know its value. The firearm is around 75%. Any ideas ?
The H&R Topper is valued at;
Exc. Cond: $100.00 USD
V.G. Cond: $80.00 USD
Good Cond: $60.00 USD
I would add $35.00 USD for each barrel and of course sell it as a package deal, or you could list the shotgun and barrels separately in the "Parts Section" of <gunbroker.com> if you are interested in selling them piece meal.
Hope this helps,
First of all, I'm no expert on values.
Second: Extra barrels in pistol, or rifle caliber usually go for more than a H&R shotgun in 12 gauge. I have never seen a rifle/pistol barrel sell for $35.00. I saw a 44 Magnum barrel selling for $50.00 in 1992. I'll bet it's more now.
Third: Little known fact...The 30-30 Winchester cartridge is inherently accurate in a single shot, or bolt action rifle. I have owned two 30-30 H&R rifles. Both shot less than 1 inch 5 shot groups at 100 yards. I would not sell my 30-30 H&R for $500.00, unless I could replace it for less than that. I have a H&R 158 20 Ga 2 3/4 inch chamber with original Walnut stock and NO forend screw. It uses a snap on/off latch like what you see on a side by side double shotgun. No serial number. Someday I'm going to research it. If you decide to sell your H&R, you will regret it later in life. Good luck...and stay away from gun stores when selling.
I own a H and R Topper #058 Ser.#BA4774030. It came with
5-barrels. A 20ga.,44mag,22hornet,357,and 30/30.
Three of the rifle barrel's came with scopes. The bargoneing ended up with $400.00 cash. it also came with a Gun suitcase that will retail for $100.00. I don't know how much this purchase is worth,but someday one of my kids will. I'm looking for the aprox. age of this piece. Thanks for reading. Mel
I am looking for a 30-30 barrel for my H&R 20 gauge Bay State (snap on) shotgun but i cant find anything except for people saying they have a barrel, please email me if you know where i can get one, Thanks!
Rifle barrels for the Bay State shotgun do not exist. Recently manufactured H & R rifle barrels (last 40 years) will not interchange on a Bay State shotgun.
AS you have more than one barrel, does the snap on fore end work with all three, I need to get one for my 20 gauge and would appreciate hearing from you.
