    Hi rollinztx.....welcome to TFF. :)

    Keep checking back. Our resident expert Harrington & Richardsons, Bill Goforth (he's literally writing the book on them ), should be along shortly to tell you all you'd like to know about your H&R.

    H&R used the "AF" letter codes in 1969. value of a Model 732 (manufactured 1957-1986) would be 60%=$85 to 100%=$185

    Thank you much. The piece is in mint condition. I picked it up for a hundred dollar bill.

    the Model 732 is capable of using either the 32 S&W or the 32 S&W LONG.

    FYI, the 32 S&W Long is a very accruate cartridge and is chambered in many fine target handguns.

    I have an H&R 732 with a serial number starting with AL. Do you know when these were manufactured? Also, I've seen that some of these say .32S&W Long, but mine just says .32S&W. Can all model 732s safely fire 32 long, or only the ones that specify it? Thanks in advance for any information you have.

    AL=1973

    MODEL 732 GUARDSMAN----------------------------------------1958-1973
    Solid Frame, Double Action, Swing-out cylinder, Round & Square butt, 32 S&W Long Caliber, 6 Shot, Blue Finish, Barrel Length 2½, & 4 inches
    VALUE: 100%=$185 60%=$85

    MODEL 732 GUARDSMAN SECOND MODEL (TRANSFER BAR IGNITION) -----1974-1986
    Solid Frame, Double Action, Swing-out cylinder, Round & Square butt, 32 S&W Long Caliber, 6 Shot, Blue Finish, Barrel Length 2½, & 4 inches
    VALUE: 100%=$185 60%=$85

    H&R mixed the markings on this model. when the model 732 was introduced the 32 S&W was considered an obsolete and they were just marked 32 S&W refering to the 32 S&W LONG. they will chamber both.

    I have a H&R Topper 20ga. I'm gonna say it's roughly 21 years old serial# starts with BB. Can you tell me when it was manufactured, and the current value? Its NIB.

    H&R used the letter codes "BB" in 1985.
