i have a handi rifle in a 45-70 with the hard wood stock and forearm. i was wanting something different and called H&R/NEF. they told me the stock and forearm from a Buffalo Classic will bolt right on with no mods reguired. i think it will make for a nice looking rifle. i might also have a saddle ring installed.
All H&R stocks will fit all of their break barrel firearms. I think the 2" shorter BC carbine forend will look better on the 22" barrel than the longer BC/Target forend in case you want to check that out. The checkered walnut Topper Deluxe Classic stock is also available if you don't want the steel butt plate. Lots of choices.
