Re: NEF frame

Check their site, www.hr1871.com and check out the barrel exchange program. For sure the centerfire rifle cartridges won't work. The Huntsman MZ will on some shotgun frames. Give them a call.
In Gun Parts I have a Centerfire frame for sale, will work for everything except 10 ga.

Re: NEF frame

My frame will work with ANY centerfire barrel.
I I stated this somewhere, but the frame SN must start with an N or an H to accept any centerfire tube. Mine begins with an H.

Check out the H & R site. www.hr1871.com

Here is a link to the barrel acc. program & read the first paragraph.

Thanks

Re: NEF frame

I heard all about what accurate guns the NEFs were so I bought one for my son as a starter gun in 30-06. It took three shots to hit the ground with that thing. After talking to several other NEF owners I found out that for some reason many of the larger faster bullets/calibers (30-06/280) are not as accurate as the smaller ones (223/243). I know very little about the subtleties of single shots but I have a feeling that there is some kind of torque with the greater weight/mass/speed/enertia bullets that is causing this inaccuracy. This is only my experience with ONE gun. Not much of a sample.

I guess long story short...(too late)...try one of the 223/243 size barrels, maybe a 204...hmmmm...,but do some research on the bigger calibers before you get one of them.

Good luck...just my two cents worth.

Re: NEF frame

I had the same experience with an '06 I bought for my middle son. I think the higher intensity rounds are less forgiving when it comes to barrel gap & latch engagement, so at least some truth to what you are saying. Later, I bought a 280 that was a tackdriver. It had a very tight gap (.0015) & good latch engagement. But it is not a big deal to me & not worth arguing about, I like them for 45-70,
45-90 type rounds & muzzleloaders. They are usually good in 223, but the forearm is sensitive to bipods & such & I am done with them for all but the above stated purpose.
