so if i sent my action back to h and r would they fit a handi caliber to my ultra or wouldn;t they? because under ultra the only choices i have are .243, .223, .308, .25-06, and .450 marlin.......i would so much like to have a 45-70 gov't fitted to it but not sure if the factory would do it because of it being an ultra and not a handi
All of the asterisked marked barrels can only be fitted to frames made after 1997 or '98, the cutoff is right there somewhere, the only way to find out for sure is to call or email them, give them your frame serial number and ask if a certain barrel can be fitted to your frame. The list of production years for the serial number alpha prefixes is in the FAQ.

*For this barrel, please call Customer Service at (978) 630-8220 to see if it can be fitted to your receiver.

my serial number starts with HU which tells me it's a 2004 so i should have no problem fitting any handi or ultra's to it correct?
i am seeing the 30-06 ultracomp on the barrel accesory page..whats the advantage of the ultra comp and are they still available?
Don't you mean you're NOT seeing the Ultracomp barrel on the acc barrel page?? The Ultracomp barrel is a compensated or ported barrel, they had some in stock earlier in .270 and .30-06, they may or may not have any left, they're from a run a few years ago...the porting reduces muzzle jump and recoil....it also is quite loud to those standing to the side of the muzzle, but not much difference, if any, for the shooter. ....Yes, your frame can be fitted with an asterisked barrel.

I'd send em an email today asking if they have any left, the part number, price and provide your serial number so they know you have a new frame. They'll respond as soon as they come back to work..... next monday, I think!!
