Default H&R/NEF Handi Rifle

so I was doing some thinking and I have decided I want to buy a H&R/NEF SyntheticHandi Riflea .243 or a .270 so If you have owned or even used one any input on it would be great. Does it feel small since it's only 38 in.?, is it a quality rifle or does it look cheap? etc.


(it'll be used for deer hunting and I have only heard good things about it so I want to try it out.)

I bought my son one in .243. It shoots great (very accurate) and the .243 does a great job on deer. The one pictured below is a youth model and I have taken it hunting myself several times. Its a great rifle.If you're looking for an accurate single shot that is priced right, I would recommend it.

I love my Handi-rifle so much that I bought two. I have 3 barrel combo's between them. 45-70 gov (has killed many hogs in the past 3 years), .357 mag (for my sons to hunt with), and .50 cal muzzleloader. I highly recommend them and plan to send off for a .243 barrel during the off-season.

I have the Ultra Varmint version in .243. I remember being very surprised at the fit & finish when I received it. It locks up tight with a trigger that's not all that bad for a $300 rifle. It shoots great with the Simmons 4-12x40 on top too.

I have the handi .270, with leupold 3-9. Love it! I treat it like a step-child in the Adirondacks for weeks on end. Great gun! Almost 10 years of abuse, never failed me yet.

I will say it time and time again. H&R is one of the most underated gun makers out there. The 12ga. slugger that I have in my opinion is one the most accurate slug guns on the market. Sure itsa single shot, but how many times do we get a good second shot on game when needed.
