Was looking at a TC, but for the price of a TC frame I can get a handi rifle and 2 barrels. Does anyone know of any custom gunsmiths out there that do barrel work on the handi rifle? Or has anyone had any of their barrels rechambered with any luck?

1022man;
Barrels for the handi rifle are available thru the manufacture in a variety of calibers. Bear in mind, You are dealing with basically a 410 shotgun action like the H&R topper. Therefore, firing monster sized calibers in it would not be a great idea. Stretching the action and loosening the lock is entirely possible. I have seen them in rifle caliber up to .270. In my opinion, thats as hot as I would be comfortable with.

Kill all the lawyers and the world will be much better for it.

The NEF SB2 rifles are not your fathers H&R Topper. They now come in a variety of calibers--.22LR to 450 Marlin and just about everything in between..They come in wood stocked, laminated, and synthetic..They are capable of taking high intensity cartridges...243, 280,270,308,30-06, 450 Marlin, 7-08, and 45-70. I own and handload for eleven (11) of them..well worth the money--very accurate when worked up for a good handload----Strong?? In the 45-70 some load to level Three. Myself to Level 2. Great single shots...

I know of one gunsmith that can do just about anything to a barrel but make it smaller in caliber. His name is Scott, his e-mail address is erase@ispwest.com..... You can ask him about some of the guns that he has done. He has several pic of them.

The price seems right on these but how is the trigger? The best built gun value can be worthless with a 6 pound trigger.

When you send in your gun you can have them adjust the trigger pull.
