New England SB2-500 HANDI-RIFLE 500S&W RS 22
[72514]
$269.00
by ken F Date Added: Tuesday 16 November, 2010
I just bought this handi-rifle in 500 s&w. It is my first H&R single shot rifle.
The finish on this rifle leaves a bit to be desired, but I wasn't buying an expensive gun, so some shortcuts were expected. Actually the only issue I saw was cosmetic in that the buttstock was not tapered to the action, but is about 1/8 inch larger in diameter (something I will take care of first time I refinish the stock)
I had read about this gun in this caliber online, and was hesitant to buy,as all the writings I found talked about how bad it kicked.
I have a thing about having a pistol/rifle combo, and having a revolver in 500s&w, I had to order a matching caliber rifle.
Boy was I surprised!! this rifle is sweet to shoot, and accurate as any open-sight rifle I own. First loads were popping soda cans at 85-110 yards.
This rifle has the fiber optic sights on it, which I didn't really care for until now, but they are easy to bring up and on target.
When the FFL dealer called me to say my rifle had arrived, he called it my "cannon". When I opened the box I saw why...the 500 has basically a bull barrel, giving it the look of a 20 gauge shotgun until you look at the bore. As a single shot it is fairly light weight, though I didn't weigh mine to see how light
Don't be afraid of the kick, as it is not nearly what my 45-70 lever action was...and less than my 7mm magnum, and bothers my less than shooting my 7.62x39 carbine.
If and elk or bear get within 150 yards..it will be meat on the table or rug for the floor.
