Maybe I can help by explaining a little bit more. You stated you currently have a SB1 (shotgun) and an SB2 (rifle), and want to know if you can put a Huntsman barrel on either frame. First you have to understand that their were two (2) versions of the Huntsman. The older versions had a "push-in" and also a "screw-in" type breech plug.
The newer versions also had a "screw-in" type breech plug, which used the 209 shotgun primer carrier. I'm assuming that the Huntsman that your interested in buying is the newer one, which originally used the 209 shotgun primer carrier, and has been upgraded to use the 209 shotgun primer without the primer carrier. If this is correct, then the answer is: Yes, you can put the barrel on either frame. If you ask for my advice, I would use the shotgun (SB1) frame for the Huntsman.
Regarding your question about the Sidekick; the Sidekick barrel will not fit
on the SB1 or SB2 frames , if you decide to purchase the Sidekick, you have to buy the complete Sidekick rifle, frame and barrel together for it to shoot/function.[/QUOTE]
Your reply might be confusing to some. So let me try to clarify. The old Huntsmans with both the screw in and push in plugs in .45, 58 and 12 ga, do not fit either an SB1 or SB frame. They only fit the "Old" Huntsman frames. The new Huntsman barrel is only .50 cal as I understand it.
Now my question is, do the "Old" Huntsman barrels fit the Sidekick frames?
