Default H&R 12 Ga DOM

So I have been trying to figure out the DOM for my H&R 12 Ga I bought at a pawn shop. The barrel and receiver tang both have matching s/n. It has the left side stamped with patent Feb 27, 1900. Serial number is A207841. The fore end snaps on and off, then the barrel can come off.

Any ideas of DOM based on those details provided?

TIA

Need pictures, H&R Arms made different models then and many variations of each model on some, so pics are required, also chambering and barrel length and marking are helpful, the serial number prefix doesn't help, they used A for many years.

Little over 28” barrel. 12 GA choke written on top of barrel. Not sure how to find out chambering

It's a model 1908, but it has a short 1st variation forend(1909-21) and a 2nd or 3rd variation stock(1922-30) which has the flat pistol grip bottom, the 1st variation had a rounded bottom, so either the stock or forend was changed sometime, or the book is wrong and they made some changes during production. It was made somewhere between 1909 and 1930, best guess is it's a late 1st variation or early 2nd variation if original.

Awesome! Thanks for helping narrow it down. I wish it could tell me the history of the owners! Picked this up at local pawn shop for $45. It had electric tape wrapped around the whole gun except the receiver. I took it off and cleaned the sticky residue off with oil. It’ll be a future wall hanger!
