    Here's an original ad page for the W&H BC and Target, they were made by H&R 1871, they're hard to date due to the WH serial number prefix which was used for all years they were offered, best guess is 1995-early 2ks, 2006 H&R production would have an HW prefix.

    They were the same as those marked H&R, except they came without sights, the H&R marked BC came with a Lyman 17A front sight and Williams WGRS rear sight, I have three of the H&Rs, a scoped 45-70 that I bought as an accessory barrel, a factory rifle rechambered to 45-120 with a William FP-TK rear sight and brass spacer and trigger guard, and a 50-140, another accessory barrel rebored and chambered by JES. Also have two 38-55 Target models, one an accessory barrel cut to 18" in carbine form with synthetic stock, and the other a factory rifle.

    That's a bit high for a used BC in the US, many used BCs have sold in the GBO H&R Classifieds for $350-$400, both of my new ones cost $299 when I bought them, they'd gone up about $100 last I checked at Bud's, so you're basically paying a new US price. There's a used one on Gunbroker right now for $539, that's more than I'd pay for one.

    I wrote with the seller about the year of production. He wrote back, the weapon has german proof marks out of 1998. He bought the weapon unused in 2014 without any sights. He bought the Lyman frontsight and the Williams rearsight at Brownells after the deal.

    Interesting rifle, now I want one too! But in that video, the guy has to pull out every fired case. Does the rifle not have an ejector?

    H&R switched all center fires from ejectors to extractors in 2007. Only rim fires and shotguns retain the ejector system.

    All H&R centerfire rifles made 2007 on were only made with manual extractors, his rifle was made 2006(has engagement view port on the right side of the frame) or later, so it's likely a factory extractor. H&R started switching over to extractors in 2004, only shotgun and rimfires remained ejectors thru the end of production in 2015. An ejector can easily be converted to extract only, see the FAQs in the H&R Centerfire forum link below.
