Default Will an Ultra Slug Furniture fit any SB2 Frame?

Being a somewhat "newbie" to the Handi Rifles, I have a couple of questions. Will a wood stock set from an Ultra Slug gun fit any SB2 Handi frame? I'm trying to buy the set listed in the H&R Classifieds, and wanted to make sure I could take the synthetic set off of my .22 Hornet Handi (keeper) and install the wood Ultra Slug butt-stock and forearm. Also, I can't seem to find the "PM" button to send the poster a message. Yep! I'm a newbie.

The Ultra Slug 20 ga will fit but your barrel will look lost in the big forearm channel. The Ultra Slug 12 ga uses a 10 ga receiver. Click on the sellers name, a box will pop up showing options one of which is PM.

357 Mag camo syn stock, 30/30 cinnamon lam checkered straight grip stock, 20 ga USH camo syn stock, 20 ga Topper Jr 490 cut to 21.5" and Rem Chokes, 357 Rem Max nickel Topper 88 .410 stock.

All the Ultraslugs can use the same stock including the 10ga based 12ga USH because the frame at the tang is the same as SB1 and SB2 frames, the only difference in the 10ga frame is it has a lower watertable to allow for the .100" larger chamber swell on the 10ga/12ga USH barrel, but the forends are different because of the larger barrel diameter.

Quickdtoo & 45/70fan, thanks for the information. I sent the USPS money order today, so I'll be trying to put the stock set to use shortly. Can you guys tell me if there's any difference in the length of the mounting hardware between the synthetic and wood furniture? I like wood and had planned to remove the synthetic and install the wood. Also, do you think that Ultra Slug forearm would work on a bull barrel?



Sidebar: Recently bought a H&R Handi with a factory matched barrel set in .223 & .308. All numbers matched and the .223 barrel is a bull barrel. I believe the .308 barrel is also. I don't see much discussion about the .308 on here. What are you guys thoughts on the .308 on the Handi platform for deer or other larger game? Thanks.

Check out the FAQ's ..... https://www.go2gbo.com/forums/108-h-...ken-links.html

The stock bolt is a standard 3/8"-24x 4" fine thread cap screw available at Ace, True Value, and other hardware stores, the Survivor and new style syn[/color] stock takes a 5" bolt. Be sure to have add a 10mm flat washer or two to insure the bolt isn't too long and interfere with hammer travel, 10mm washers are smaller in OD and fit best. Laminated thumbhole stocks take a 2" button head socket bolt, available from H&R or bolt supply houses.

357 Mag camo syn stock, 30/30 cinnamon lam checkered straight grip stock, 20 ga USH camo syn stock, 20 ga Topper Jr 490 cut to 21.5" and Rem Chokes, 357 Rem Max nickel Topper 88 .410 stock.

45/70 Fan & Treeslayer, thanks for that information. I'll check out the FAQs and I did find out that the stock set coming to me came off a 20Ga Ultra Slug. I believe this to be the "factory" set. Would either of you know what wood an H&R Ultra Slug stock set is made from? Thanks again.

Birch. But the laminated variety I don't know.

Some were laminate and some were palletwood.

You can bed them to a smaller barrel using jb weld wood stick. It is an epoxy stick, light brown color, that you mix by kneading with your hands. Push it down in the forend channel with your fingers and then screw your barrel on tight to squeeze the material around the shape of the barrel. Rub a candle on the bottom of the barrel first to make a bond release. It cures hard and can be sanded to finish.

All of my favorite creatures have white bottoms.

Lt Dave, thanks for that information. I'm familiar with the JB Weld two part that you mix the white with the black, and end up with gray, But not the JB Weld Wood Stick. I'll have to check that out.
