I have a NEF .243 bull barrel , and I love it. Its very accurate and fun to shoot. I would say you will not find that rifle in a .204 yet. They have limited there production to the basic caliburs. You could try there web site and see. Most of them are around $200.00. Mine was $202.00 ordered from wal-mart. Good luck!

I've seen Handirifles shoot with rifles costing 4 to 5 times as much. They are a decent gun for the money, are plenty accurate enough to take deer sized game at any reasonable range, are very lightweight, simple and reliable. They don't have any bells-and-whistles, and they won't win you and status or bragging rights, but what the heck difference does it make what kind of gun you used to kill a trophy buck? If I had reason too I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

If you can afford better, by all means buy better. But if you can't or don't wish to spend a lot of cash on a rifle, and don't consider having ONLY one shot an unbearable handicap (my fellow muzzleloaders will snicker at that thought), then the Handi-rifle is a fine choice.

I have a .223 H&R Handi-Rifle. It shoots fine for what I need. Will so sub-MOA groups at 100 yds which is fine for yotes out to 250 or so. Not a bad buy for the money, and you CAN get it chambered in the Bull Barrel model for the .204 Ruger.

I checked the website and they don't list the .204 for their rebarrel option[&:].

go to
www.marlinfirearms.com
then click on H&R at the top right

I talked to NEF and was told they wouldn't be available in the .204 until end of July - August.
