Folks,
I was wondering if someone over your side of the pond work out for me as best they can when this old girl was made please

Harrington & Richardson 410
Model 1915
Serial No A145692

410-12mm choke marked on barrel

My best guess is approximately 1922-36, can anyone narrow it down further or work out a date for me please.

P dog,
All of the info I've got is from here
http://www.nramuseum.org/media...of%20manufacture.pdf
When you scroll down to the H&R single barrel shotgun part the dates range for the small frame Assume 410 here, so there was a fair time spread?
1916-1930 (blank here so I'm assuming that's my old girl)

No5 1931-1942
No8 1931-1942
As to the No5 or No8 was this a variation of the Model 1915 or a different model altogether?

Just do a search for H@R serial number and a found several charts listing the number codes.

They all said A series was 1940.

I've done a bit more digging - I hope this makes sense.

It does date the Model 1915 to the discontinued date of 1930, from which the Model No5 took over.
To confuse the issue all of these were marked 410-12mm from 1921-1936.
So as mine is a Model 1915 & marked 410-12mm it will have to be then a minimum of 90 years old.
At least this last bit of information has narrowed the time frame down somewhat & this now more sense of the markings compared to the dates
