When you get it try a Handi barrel on it and get back to us....<><....

I read this and went to the Numrich website, can't find any Handi barrels there. Care to share how to find them?

Thats easy, you just go to the classifieds here and get the best deal or go somewhere like ebay and pay too much.

The key to numeric is to individually look up all interchangeable models. The search function on the site is horrible. Look under the older models and they pop up. But only shotgun tubes and mostly snap on type forends. They are gonna take some work to function with a screw on forearm. You have to be willing to dig to find parts from them.

Not buying Chinese or not buying junk? The two are not synonymous. Would you be interested in American junk?

Unlikely anyone is going to 'revive' the older model guns. In a low end category such as these where every cent saved matters it is more practical to design a new model optimized for modern materials and production techniques that take advantage of modern technology.

That goes without saying. Every manufacturer needs to continually improve to stay competitve and make a profit. The import of cheap shotguns from China that are a direct clone of a discontinued US brand is offensive to those of us who value american jobs and economic prosperity. Especially when the competitive advantage of the Chinese is at the expense of human rights, environmental pollution, currency manipulation, unfair trade practices, etc. Our dollars are votes. American made products support american jobs. Some people don't care. They only consider themselves. They are a curse to our country.

Sorry guys gonna have to wait. Spent all my toy money on a mill and hot blueing set up this weekend. So new projects are strictly out till I get these paid off. Might have to do some horse trading this week and make some progress. But I think my gun budget is gone for a while.
