This is my first entry into single shot break action rifles, but not my first H&R. Simply put, these guys make an awesome product, and I am super confident with the purchase I made. A couple of points I wanted to add into this review:
#1 Buds - Awesome to deal with, and handle my transactions. Turn around was about 1 week from the time I purchased it to the time the 4473 was filled out and I was going home with it. UNBELIEVABLE!
#2 Price was awesome, but more important, please spend the money for the shipping insurance. You may NEVER need it until you get the one package you should have. It will save you a headache. I am saying this not as someone who had an issue with shipping, because I didn't. Better to be safe....
#3 I didn't know I could also buy the .44mag, 12GA, or 20GA barrels for less than buying a completely new model. This has the SB1 frame, and because of that is interchangable with the barrels I mentioned. Shotgun is about $60, .44mag $110. Go to H&R and see for yourself.
#4 If you buy any other rifle caliber like .223, .30-06, .308 those barrels fit the SB2 frame and will not fit this one, so be mindful of that.
I have not had a chance to put range time on it, I need to secure a scope for it (no iron sights), and it's just pansy cold out for me.
The FFL I transferred this with didn't want me to take it home because it's the first one he saw (wanted to look at it before I was able too, I was filling out the 4473 at the time) and was super excited to handle it. Awww the love between a man and his new gun.... Any way, I will love using this for deer hunting, plinking, and teaching my daughter to shoot.
Thank you Buds!
