    So true. I had one and am looking to replace it. I don't know what it is about the BC, but it was just so cool and fun to shoot. Traded it for something else, but that's just me.
    Send it.

    If you like shooting heavy bullets, then you'll love it. The H&Rs are good guns. Barrel quality is higher than what one would guess for a budget rifle. Sure its not a good historical representation of anything, but you can shoot modern pressure loads in it. I always wanted a long single shot 30-30 like that. Something to hang over my mantle, but have ready for the occasional back yard deer or varmint issue.

    Congrats! Yup, plastic trigger guard and spacer just like all other H&R' single shot long guns made since about 1960 or so, the 38-55 Target model Wesson and Harrington came with steel parts, they were available as accessory for all other H&Rs, I got the last of what was available when Gardner closed in 2008.

    The Wesson & Harrington Target Model in 38-55 WCF follows the tradition of fine target offerings from the likes of Ballard or Wurfflein in the 1870's. The 38-55 Cartridge traces its roots to the early 1880's when it was developed for target shooting by the Ballard Rifle Company. The Wesson & Harrington Target Model uses a 28" heavy target barrel and origanal style rifling for consistant accuracy. This barrel length was one of the most popular for this caliber when it was introduced. The Target model also includes all steel furniture. A high polish, heat treated steel trigger guard and forend spacer are standard on this rifle and are now available as a factory upgrade to the owners of the Buffalo Classic, through the H&R 1871, Inc, Customer Service Department.

    i learned a lot about this rifle the last weeks. i saw different stamps on the left side of the receiver. "Wesson&Harrington" , "Harrington&Richardson" , "H&R1871" . What is the difference ? Only the year of production? Or in quality?

    Here's the H&R timeline, basically H&R1871 made the Harrington & Richardson, Wesson & Harrington and New England Firearms brands. In post 1987 production when H&R and NEF branded firearms were made concurrently, H&Rs were the premium models with nicer wood and a better finish(Ultras, BC and Target and Topper Deluxe Classic) and NEF were the plain models with hardwood stocks and not so nicely finished metal(Handi-rifles and Pardners), in later production after the move to Ilion, they kinda dropped the difference in finish, but still had the same lines, but dumped the NEF brand. Most all of my older modern H&Rs(of about 50 of them all total) have much nicer metal work than any of the later production, whether Ultras or Handi-rifles. All made in the same factory, either Gardner MA, or Ilion NY.
