I believe the Fall 2004 issue has the Scott Duff article about low number/early H&R's.
The same article can be found in "The Best Of The GCA Journal" book #6.

Nice rifle. Early Harrington and Richardsons are great to have.

Way back in 2000 I ordered what I think as the limit then, 2 M1s, plus a Danish return order add-on that was allowed with proof participation in a CMP sanctioned match.

What a luck of the draw haul... I received an early H3R (not H&R)
# 46666XX with an HRA 3-53 barrel.

Also received a Harvester with an LMR barrel.

The Danish has USGI wood and a sight cover stamped with an anchor and rack # showing it was in the Danish navy.

Luck counts.

Rich

I sold 4,666,464 earlier this year. It was an improperly corrected specimen that contained all HRA Parts. None of the typical WWII SA leftover parts. I hated parting with that rifle, but I had to come up with the funds to buy its replacement(s). I purchased SN 4,665,847 and 4,665,848. Both of these appear completely original with un-cut -9 op rods, Hart trigger groups with SA hammers, SA clip latch, and WRA op rod catches.

Both have the 3/8" DAS stocks. I have read in this thread of people with the ordnance wheel stocks on serial numbers above 4,664,000. From my reading, the ordnance wheel stocks were only used from 4,660,000 thru 4,664,000, with DAS integration at 4,661,000. Is there information elsewhere that I can read to support the use of an ordnance wheel stock beyond 4,664,000? I ask because I have a lonely one sitting in a closet.

I have also been trying to find more information regarding the Ordnance Wheel Stocks used on the 4000+ numbers. I PM'd Rick B. about this years ago, and he said that anything was possible and that the OW stock on my 46658** could very much be original.

I do not want to replace the stock on either of my rifles, but have been looking for a suitable serial number to put in the stock I have. I missed out on 4,660,386 two weeks ago, but that is just the way it goes.

I also need to know more info on the Ord wheel stocks used on the early HRA rifles. I have a stock that I think is SA but only has the wheel on the left without any other letters. Any thoughts? I can try to send a pic to someone if it would help.

It comes down to the profile if the stock, from what I have learned. IHC, HRA, and SA all at one time used a stock with just an ordnance wheel. HRAs have the large "back porch", IHCs have the slight scallop cut on the right side as well as a "V" notch in the trigger guard pocket and a 4 digit Julian date in the barrel channel. So, if it doesn't match those descriptions, by deduction, it is likely to be SA. But do post pics so that others may be able to weight in their expertise.

I'm thinking it is for a JLG to DAS transition period 4.3 SA as it has no porch and circled serif P Don't have any hosting accounts but would email a pic to someone.
