It's amazing what they could build when they put a little care into it. Very nice. Other than the BC and a few exceptions, the best looking modern H&R

Beautiful. Would give a Henry a run for its money.

Thanks guys. The barrel locks up like a bank vault, and it opens very smoothly when the release lever is pushed. The trigger is amazing. Wood has some very nice figure, but it does appear to be a little grainy or porous (?) for lack of a better word. Seems as though maybe H&R did put a little extra effort into these guns.

Since I'm not a shotgun guy, not sure if this one is staying. Guess it doesn't eat much and it seems to get along well with my Handi rifles. :)

Hey Buddy,

How much does it weigh?

Would be interesting to compare with the older toppers.

It really does look like another company made it, beautiful shotgun. It's almost begging to be taken to a trap stand.

Hey Dave. Sorry but I have no way to weigh it. Used to use a bathroom scale to get a rough idea, but my better half has banned them from the house. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

I agree. It has either been to the trap field or the turkey woods as someone added a white center bead and replaced the original brass front bead with a green fiber optic. :( It does come up nicely though even with the low stock.

I use a fish scale. It works pretty well. Just wondering how much heavier than the lightweight toppers.

I am green with envy. What a great buy. I have desired one of those beauties from the first time that I saw an ad for them. I wish that I would have been a follower of H&R/NEF a long time ago and I'd have one now. Let us know how it shoots!
