RARE H&R Model 760 CAL. 22 S., L., LR. auto-eject single shot manufactured between 1965 to 1970 and discontinued because of pressure from the BATF.  Purchased this Harrington & Richardson, Inc. rifle in 1973 and used it hunting and target shooting for many many years. It has a 18" Barrel, 36.5" OAL and 13" LOP and a trigger pull of 3-3.5 lbs. The metal finish is nice for its age with iron sights and original bluing and stock has minor scratches from use and a thumb safety on left side of receiver and receiver is grooved for tip off scope mounts. The serial number is AF252077 with the letter codes "AF" were used in 1969 manufactured. Not many of these H&R Model 760 are seen because they were discontinued shortly after 1970 from pressure from BATF. $399 shipped to FFL.

The H&R Model 760 was a Auto-Eject Single Shot that fired from a closed bolt. The auto-eject is a blowback operated and the bolt handle can be turned to tighten or loosen pressure against a captive detent ball on the side of the bolt opposite the handle that presumably regulates the tension of the bolts sliding movement allowing use of 22 short, long or long rifle ammo. The blowback action also cocks the striker / hammer for the next shot. It was discontinued because of pressure from the BATF the only thing needed to turn this model into a machine gun was the addition of a magazine and a bolt return spring. H&R made two models of the Auto Eject single shot, the model 755 Sahara with full length stock and the H&R model 760, same rifle with Sporter style stock.
