Question H&R Barrel in .25-20?

Is there an H&R barrel chambered in .25-20 and if so, does anyone have one for sale? Prefer carbine, but would look at pistol length. Thanks for your help.

Do you mean .25-20 Winchester or .25-20 Single Shot? Two very different cases.

It was never a factory option, I only know of a couple that have had rebores done, Graybeard had Wayne York turn his H&R Hornet into a 25-20.

Thanks Tim. I had heard that there were some Contender barrels in the .25-20 WCF. Do you know if this is true? Did Thompson Center make such a barrel? Thanks.

Best place to ask that is in one of the TC forums or do a search.

My "fever" may have cooled down a bit, after seeing the price of this ammo. If I found a barrel, I'd definitely need a set of dies, so I could afford to shoot it. Right now, I'm letting the ammo (141 rounds) wag the barrel pursuit, instead of the other way around.

I have a factory Contender carbine barrel in .25-20 WCF, it's a hoot to shoot. I load most of my own ammo so cost is not a factor.

Been there myself, sorta, had no real interest in the 500S&W Handi, but found a couple boxes of bullets and dies marked way down, so had to buy a barrel, of course!!

i've always wanted a winchester m92 in 25/20. my friends late uncle had one with a peep sight(i'm thinking redfield, but it could be a lyman.). he was a farmer and the 25/20 was his "truck gun". he shot everything from groundhogs to pheasants to turkeys to foxes to coyotes to deer and a few cows that had to be put down. you know the phrase, beware of the man that only uses one gun. he was the one it was made for!!!!!

my 25/20 will probably made from MGM(tc encore/'tender barrels).
