Harrington & Richardson Firearms Topper


The first name in single shots. The single-shot, break-action shotgun has been an American mainstay for well over a century. And no gunmaker in history has mastered its sleek, simple design like Harrington & Richardson®. In fact, we built our first in 1893. The Topper® name resonates with many generations of shooters because it’s often the gun you start with as a youngster and return to as an adult when you realize simple is better. When you desire one well-placed shot from a lightweight, dependable shotgun, Topper is the lineup more people trust than any other. From our compact and starter shotguns, to the Deluxe Classic and premium Trap Gun, this lineup has something for everyone in every stage of their hunting and shooting career.

All models are single-shot, break-open action with side lever release, automatic ejection and our Transfer Bar System that acts as a safety to prevent unintended firing. Also, each gun comes complete with its own special locking device.

A true American classic, featuring a distinctive black-finished hardwood stock, nickel-finished receiver and a fixed choke. It’s available in 12 and 20 gauge and 410 bore, with a brass bead front sight and automatic ejectors for fast reloading.
