I picked this up in the mid 90s for cheap from the DCM ( formerly Civilian Marksmanship Division ). This was when it was a total "crap shoot" on what you ended up with. In my paperwork I included a hand written note asking for either an International Harvester or a Harrington and Richardson and thanked them for picking a nice rifle for me.

Below is the IH that I got. It was made about 1953

And yes, it shoots great. I used it for NRA High Power competition. Only upgrade was match sights on the back ( a military option )

Very cool and thanks for sharing! I never heard of these. Did ih make other guns and for how many years? Im not a big gun guy and only own one for home defense....or if things don't go so well with the next election ;)
