walnut stock set?
« on: April 12, 2012, 07:39:12 pm »
I have noticed Numrich has a walnut stock and forearm listed for the Handi rifle. Does anyone have a set, I would like to see pics and like to know some feedback.

I wonder if the stock sets that Numrich is selling are factory (used, or excess stock which was sold off when the old H&R went bankrupt)?  Or are they "aftermarket" walnut stock sets which were manufactured to fit Handi's for Numrich.

What are they asking for the sets?

I have a factory walnut set on an older Handi, but it's a little dinged up.

Someone will come along to correct me if I'm wrong, but the only walnut stock set Iknow of is the Topper Deluxe Classic.

Thanks, Dinny

Dinny,

I have a 45-70 (NF prefix) that I purchased which had the walnut stock set, I was told that it was a custom ordered set.  I don't believe it started as a Topper Deluxe Classic, since it's an SB2 frame.

item 1359060 and 1359360
looks like it would be about $75 total.
I have been off work since the first of March with back surgery or I would order the set and find out. I hope they have a set left when I get back to work.

That seems like a pretty decent price considering I seen some walnut stocks sold in the classifieds for about an even hundred.

That's too close to call. Looks like an older TDC to me though.

The only current walnut stocks avalible are the BC and TDC stocks. BUT H&R's up into the late 60's where walnut! SO who knows what it could be.

OSR, I agree with -Dinny tho, it does look allot like the TDC stocks.

I just wonder if it is a pallet wood set that they are calling walnut due to the color of the stain??

Nevermind, I just looked and they list a walnut set and a walnut stained hardwood set. The walnut stained hardwood set is more expensive than the walnut set.  :o
