Right now I have two #1B's and two Handi rifles. The Handi's are getting dusty...

I'm thinking of getting a single shot for my next rifle any suggestions out there as to where to start looking?
Would one of these be in the picture?:

There seem to be a few folks who are pretty high on 'em.

I have a buffalo classic and it is a great rifle! It will do its job if I do mine.Get some tang sights and you can shoot out to 200 yards with no problem.

I've owned two handi rifles in the past,the 223 was a bull barrel and shot 45 grainers in 5/8 inch three shot groups at 100 yards,the other was a 243 with a light barrel and synthetic stock it was capable of 1 inch or less groups at 100 yards,they aren't expensive but the ones I've owned shot can get them in a bunch of calibers and stocks and barrels.good luck.

I would vote for the CVA Optima "Elite". You will have a wide selection for just about any application you would like. Anywhere from 12 gauge to 222 all the way up to 300 win mag, or 45-70. Barrels for the gun run around $200. Best of all, the barrels for all Elites are Bergara barrels. The gun itself can be picked up with the calibre you desire for around $350, and (in my opinion) shoot just as well as the expensive TC's.

If I had the money for one of the inexpensive single shots, but not enough for a Ruger #1, I wouldn't buy anything.I'd save up for the #1 or an 1885, or a Sharp's. None of them are what I would consider to be 'stupidly overpriced'. I think the extra$$$ onany of those is well worth it.
