Our Assessment: The Harrington & Richardson Model 158 is one of those guns that used to be in every barn or garage in rural America. These things are just about bulletproof, and will last for centuries. They are as simple as it is possible to be, a single shot break-top, hammer fired gun, but that makes them great survival or zombie apocalypse guns! This one is in fine condition. It wants for a bit of attention to the forend, but a strip of glue, and it is back in the race, ready to last for the next century or two, providing solid, dependable service for coming generations of shotgunners!

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This shotgun can be transferred in California.
