So I was given an H and R topper 88 by my uncle but it"s missing all of its internal parts. This shotgun was purchased in the early 80"s and the only parts I"ve been able to find are for the 1996 version does anyone know if they will also fit?

What I"ve found is a parts lot but they are from an h and r sb1-27t topper from 1996. The parts look like they match what I"ve found for schematics on the gun but I won"t be sure unless I get ahold of them.

AR is the letter prefix to the serial number that signifies manufacture in 1977. This is also when the transfer bar ignition system was incorporated in H & R firearms.

Yes, the major internal change in parts was the introduction of the transfer bar which was done for safety reasons. I am sure two old dogs is correct on the 1977 date for that transition. I have not had any trouble interchanging parts between the models from that date forward. It is a good idea to call and confirm with the current manufacturer though.

Have you taken yours apart to see exactly what parts you are in need of to complete the gun?

So if my topper starts with AT it would be made after 1977?

I believed that the first year of production for the model 88 was 1979, but t.o.d. earlier in this thread mentioned 1982 and I would expect him to be correct. Either way, the answer is the same that it could not pre-date 1977. It was also never made without the transfer bar system.

This gun has no parts in it what so ever the bagel does have the ejector but that"s it so I"m trying to figure out the best way to get every part I need without forgetting something.

Feldt,

If there is no sentimental value in that shotgun and you have never put one of this type of shotgun together before then you may want to reconsider taking on this challenge. The cost of parts and your time may exceed the value of the complted project I am afraid.

Here is a link to the current manufacturer of this type of shotgun. You can download the manual for the Pardner Shotgun. http://www.hr1871.com/Support/manuals.asp

Inside the manual there is a schematic that will show you what parts go in the shotgun. That is a good place to start making your list if you decide to rebuild it.

The 1982 date is when the Model 088 (marked on the shotgun Model 88) was given the name "American classic" and when the Model 088 became the main line single barrel offering.

H & R 1871, LLC discontinued the complete line of H & R single barrel rifles and shotguns in January, 2016.
