Default NEF Single Shots?

HI, I was thinking about getting a coyote gun,like a 223, but I don't want to spend too much money. Since i'm kind of limited on the cash, I was wondering what your guy's thougts were on the NEF or the H and R single shots.I'm having a bit of trouble deciding on whether to buya super light, orahandi rifle, or something like that. Thanks for the input

I have a 223 Handi Rifle Heavy Barrel for coyote hunting. Haven't shot one with it yet, but that will come. I really like the gun and look forward to the weather getting nicer to do a little more paper shooting.

Many of them need a trigger job, but you can easily do that yourself. I took mine down to a very nice, crisp 3 lbs.

Check out the forum. There is a TON of information on that site about the NEFs/H&Rs.

I have heard good things about the H&R another alternative is the savage stevens model 200 if you prefer more than a single shot. they run about $250

I picked up a Handi Rifle in .243 a couple of years ago for my daughter. She can shoot a .5" grp with consistancy. They are tack drivers. Better than her dad or older bro.

A H&R 30-30 was my first deer rifle 25 years ago, enjoy shooting it still today. A nice thing to remember about the NEF and H&R is their Multi barrels.

I would go with a bolt that way you can shoot faster. I baught a $600 .223 savage for $300 just because it was at the store for a year. It works fine.... nothing wrong, look for an outdated unused gun at a store and they usually run cheaper.
