EC175B02-E6B3-43E2-9C9A-FA8E73861498.jpg Looking to buy 1 or 2 of the sculpted receivers, I think they were marked 490, 148 or 58 but not 100% sure. I have a couple barrels I would like to match up.

Thanks for looking,

Chili

Curious as to sculpted?? I have Topper Jr 490 20 ga, the receiver appears to be like my newer receivers.

I have seen those as well. I can post a picture tonight but the ones I’m looking for have a smaller radius arch where the barrel meets the receiver.
The rounded part steps in, is the best way I can describe it. Most were, 20Ga, 410s, 30-30 and 22 hornet i think.

Thanks for asking

The profiled frames and barrels were made in the 60s-early 70s I believe going by serial number prefixes I've seen, they were all rebounding hammer models(pre-~77)with the low hammer.

This makes sense. Mine is not a rebounding hammer and was built in 1977.

I have always heard them scalloped receiver/barrels called "pre 73". The ones I have are snap on forend with real walnut furniture. Mine are Topper 158's. Nice guns...good luck in your search. The scope mounts from Weaver that I bought for the 30-30 even said "pre 73" on the package.
