handi rifle

Postby nontypical » Fri Mar 07, 2008 12:16 pm

My daughters started hunting this year. I already had a handi rifle in 243 that my son used when he was younger. I picked up a 7mm08 handi rifle this week so I have a gun for each daughter. Also got a 44 barrel with it, both already have scopes on them set and ready to go.

i may end up getting another handi rifle for elizabeth.. Warren doesn't like to "share" his rifle.. If i get another it will probably be the 7mm-08 as well.

what do you have to do to get another barrel for the handi rifle? I have the 444 Marlin on it. I would like to get onefor my other daughter to use it in gun season. I have purchased a 243 for the oldest daughter but need one now for the youngest.

You have to have the barrel's headspace matched to the reciver and that is the only reciver you can use the barrel on.. you have to send off your reciver.just get another handi for all the trouble of shipping. I have 2 handi's 45-70 and 7mm08.. you can't go wrong with the 7mm-08. I hunt with both most of the time cause I like the compact size. My 270 barrel on my 700 rem is the same length as my handi's. I am going to get another one this year but haven't decided the caliber yet..

I just bought two yesterday from Mean Mallard close out sale. I got the youth model 243 and a 444. That gives me 3 now because I already had a 223 youth model that my daughter killed two deer with last year.

$230, but they prolly don't have any left. There were only a couple left yesterday and one of them was a youth model 243 like I got, not sure what the other was. The guns are 10% off which they say is basically cost, the real savings comes on the accessories and optic which are about 35% off and the ammo which is 30% off.
