Default Handi-Rifle Blackout Scope Questions

Two questions. I bought a 300 Blackout Handi-rifle for my sons. One is right handed and the other son is left handed.

I need a hammer extension that will work from both sides. Any suggestions?

Secondly, I want to mount a Nikon P-22 2-7x32 scope on the rifle. Will Warne low rings work or do I need medium rings?

My sons are 6 & 7 years of age and will be shooting mostly suppressed subsonic rounds.

A Carlson's hammer extension will work with some modification of the hammer or extension, the opening is a bit small, so it doesn't quite fit right if you don't change the hammer or the opening, or a little on both.

The large power ring and bell of the short Nikon will most likely require high rings without changing the hammer.

As Tim eluded to, I would disassemble the receiver and trim the hammer and do a trigger job at the same time. Having a lower scope will make it easier for them to shoot. All the info you need is in the FAQs.

Thanks, Dinny

I reload and shoot 348 Win, 358 Win, 6.5 Grendel, 30-06 Springfield, 300 BLK, 44 Mag, 357 Maximum, 9mm, 45 ACP, 45 Colt, 225 Win and 35 Rem

This hammer spur will fit the H&R Handi rifles from either side, left or right.

The factory(Uncle Mike's) hammer extension will work from either side, but it won't without removing it and changing it for use on the opposite side, not very practical to be shared by the OP's sons, the Carlson's works from either side once mounted,

I also have the same issue kids shoot gun more than me and I have removed/bobbed the trigger/uncle mike's spor to accommodate low mounting scope in Warne low rings. In fact the low profile Warne rings is all I have used with guns for the kids. Little time fitting pays off and I think it pays off in the long run keeping the gun mounted for a successful shooting situation so they don't feel recoil sensitive. The hammers if you screw up are cheap and can go back to stock. I have filled back the gaps a little with solder to make the hammer more stable under recoil as the set screw tends to creep when removing contact surface. My vote is to work the hammer in conjunction with the spur to remove as little metal from either part as possible. Hope this makes sense

Guys, where is your manners?? WELCOME Vetgas!!!

Personally I feel the hammer spur side is moot... I like mine on the opposite side of most. My point is, they don't know one form the other so let them see what they like and do that. I'll bet it will be fine on one side.

BUT if not, I have seen a spur the extends from both sides and IINM it was a Carlson. As Timmy mentioned, I'm sure it could be modified to fit.

GREAT scope!! (Its my next purchase!!) I'm pretty sure your rings will be fine, if too close, its likely gonna be at the hammer. A easy trimming and shaping as -Dinny mentioned will have you stylin'

God luck and don't for get the rules... WE LIKE PICTURES!!

Thanks for all the help. I grew up recoil sensitive so I am doing everything I can to help these little guys do well.

I did do a pile of research and the P-22 Nikon scope seemed my best bet for the money. They already shoot the same reticle in a Nikon Rimfire in a 22 rifle so that was another reason.

How exactly are you guys modifying the hammer or the extension to fit the hammer? Dremel some material out?

I've only used a dremel stone to modify the hammer spur and extension, but some use a file.
