How do I tell her how much hers is worth, I have it here at my house and it looks in ok shape, I would say 75%, it has blueing on the receiver.

Since it's nice to have some references for her, go here:

or here:

Show her some prices. Look for guns in similar condition. Look at what they are actually selling for.

ebutler462,
Your son got a bargain. The stocks are selling around $40.00. Barrels around $100.00

Trying to get an average price complete, without parting it out.

Serial NUmbers

I have a Topper Model 158 I bought as a kid back in the sixties. Great little 20 guage. I have been verifying my list of serial numbers and cannot find one on the topper. I have removed the for grip and barrel but nothing. The only thing it has is a patent number.

Hope this is not closed... Need info on 38-55 Winchester Jet

I have a Harrington & Richardson Topper Model 158 in 38-55 Winchester along with 450 rds for sale. I KNOW what the ammo is worth, but not so sure about the rifle. Most all of them were barreled for Shotguns of one gauge or another.
Any Help on this appreciated...
thx
