I have a shotgun that I can't find any info on and was wondering if anyone knows about it. It's a Harrington and Richardson model 348 bolt action 12 gauge shotgun That says (GAMESTER) on the barrel but I can't find any serial numbers or dates on it. ( I might be overlooking the too) Does anyone know much about these guns?

Thanks Hunting Man, I was looking online too but not much luck there. Did they not require serial numbers during that time of manufacturing? Or am I overlooking them?

I am not 100% sure but I think they were built for department stores back then like sears or montgomery Ward My bro has an H & R 12ga Pump from my grandfather & am pretty sure he got it from one of those stores
his is a tank would not want to carry it all day long

I don't ever remember my father hunting with it, but after he passed away I have all his old guns and pull them out of the gun cabinet and oil them to keep rust off them. There is only 3 guns out his collection that I still use:

-savage model 99 30-30
-rem model 1100 12 gauge
-rem model 742 30-06 woodsmaster

I have all but two of my Dad's guns and when my brother passed away I got his also, my sister-in-law didn't want any firearms in the house. My nephew hasn't showed any interest for his Dad's guns, funny when he does hunt he likes my Savage 99. I think in a few more years a transfer to him will happen if not my "will" gives them to him anyway. I know this is off topic but something to talk about.

Further off-topic, but after I had my insurance updated and an appraisal done on my collection I realized that it's time to speak to the kids & sons-in-law, and think ahead for the grands too. I know for a fact that none have the interest I do in guns and might as well let them select the ones they will use (eventually) and let the others be sold when I'm gone. There's no way they can store and care for them all and it simply needs to be done, sooner rather than later now. My favorites may not be ones they would prefer after all..... :wink:

I know it's off topic too but my nephews and older sons are into football, baseball but my youngest son has a heart condition where he is not aloud to play contact sports and it kills him. He is only 6 and I tell him all the time he can have his own hunting show, he has more gun awareness and hunting knowledge than any teen or child I have come in contact with. ( so proud )

Back on topic though, my savage 99 has a counter on the side which I have read can increase the value a little more or lower the value. (not sure which one it does)

Turner, my Dad had a few guns in his collection, so while he was still alive he called my brother and me over to take over his collection. He had us pick a card from a deck to start. I have a son and daughter so it will either be the guns or an equal money share but I will have it worked out hopefully prior to my demise. My son does enjoy hunting so he will get the lion share. Daughter would probably take the money! :w00t:

You can try to contact H&R I don't know if they will even have any info on it but it is worth a try

I tried to contact winchester about my daughters Ranger 120 shotgun & they could not locate 1 person there that ever heard of it & it was made somewhere in the 70's - 80's
