Default .30 carbine

I was wanting to know if there was anybody that makes custom barrels for the Handi rifle .I would love to have one made in .30 carbine .and sometime after I would like one made in .223 caliber but for now the .30 carbine .I'm even open to a sleeve that could be used in the 45-70 as long as it could be easily removed .still want to be able to use the 45-70

Used 223 barrels are plentiful, check the H&R Classifieds or post and ad in the Want to Buy H&R forum, also can be had on ebay. A 30 carbine barrel can easily be had with a rebore and rechamber of a hornet or possibly a 223 barrel. Some gunsmiths/machinists will make stubbed barrels. https://www.go2gbo.com/forums/108-h-...post2055956376

Thanks I will check with oregunsmithing and see if they will make me a custom .30 cal. barrel .if I come across a .223 handi barrel what are the odds of it fitting with out a whole bunch of modifications ? It's a later model handi rifle I think it was made when Remington took over H&R

Simple rule, the more Handi's you have the easier it is to find one to fit.


Once I got over 5 or so comeplete guns one of them would always lock up solid and square with the new barrel. My .300BO has something like 5 barrels that fit it perfectly.


But I have slowly over time been setting them each up as a stand alone. No more swapping.

I still think the 9mm and the .45colt barrel live with the .300bo. Everything else has its own dedicated reciever and stocks.

Interests wide and widely varying.
Happily married 18 years. Retired on SS with lots of time to spend.
Started with .223 Ultra Bull barrel. Added .357 Talo barrel. Added an action and stock set bought here, 7.62x39 barrel. Then bought complete guns .444 Marlin and .300 Blackout. Leaving me at 4 complete rifles plus a barrel. Plus a 9mm stub job bought here, and I have been finding and buying H&R shotguns at our local pawn shop where they seem to go cheap.

Used barrel fitting is covered in the FAQs.

I talked to Wayne York quite a while ago about doing a 30 carbine rebore. He said because of head spacing he won't do straight walled rimless cartridges. Something may have changed since then so get ahold of him and see.
Dinny turned me on to Classic Barrel and gun works in Arizona. I have a barrel there now for a rebore to 45acp and he told me he could do 30 cabine.

Just another idea for those who like rimmed cartridges. 32-20 brass can be sized in a 30 carbine die to make a nice rimmed cartridge that can use 30 cal. barrels that are cheap and plentiful, or it can be blown out to use .321- 32 cal. Or .323 - 8mm barrels as I built one.

Why not get a .30-30 and just load down to .30 Carbine velocity? If you don't reload, getting a Lee Loader will get you started cheaply inexpensively and give you something else to play with! You would also have something which will give more oomph when you need it.

Or, get a .30-30 and a .30 carbine adapter if you really must use the carbine rounds!
