    H&R or NEF single shot with rifle/slug sights

    I am interested in getting a 20 ga single shot H&R or NEF that has rifle sights, but not one of the newer front heavy thick barreled slug guns. Does anyone know what model I should search for or were all slug models made with the thicker profile barrels? I am hoping to have a lightweight hiking gun with a short barrel and capable of accuracy with slugs, shot and/or rifled inserts for pistol calibers.

    A lot of the guys at the H+R forum use standard smoothbore barrels choked modified then try several brands of slugs to find the best shootin one. Theres enough meat on a 20 gauge barrel to drill and tap blind holes for sights. I have a 26"20gauge barrel I had threaded for choke tubes. A nice, light shotgun I can do most anything with with carefully selected chokes and loads.....Mike

    Look for an SB1-024 Tracker II or an SB1-S24 Ultra Light Slug Hunter which is a Tracker II with a scope rail instead of sights, both are rifled, you'll be looking for old new stock or used since H&Rs are out of production, I found no new ones online.

    Thanks very much for pointing me in the right direction...now I know what model #'s to look for. I also like the idea of cutting down standard choked shotgun barrel and adding rifle sights to it.

    I'm in the middle of a project just like this. I have a 12ga to 45 ACP adapter and am impressed with accuracy out of my dad's slug gun.

    I am adding sights to a Springfield single shot I've had for many years. I'm waiting on my loctite black max 380 to glue the sights with.

    I like the idea of shooting shot, buck, slugs, and 45 acp out of one gun. I'll let you know how it turns out.
    Practice makes perfect. Be careful what you practice.

    I just found a 20 ga H&R Topper Buck 162 but I haven't picked it up yet. When I do I think it will work out very well. Now I am looking into what brand of adapters to buy....

    Go to the H&R link below and click the FAQs and Help sticky, there's a link to a 7 or 8 page discussion on shotgun adapters, where to buy em and which ones work best.

    I have made many slug guns. I bought a Rigid pipe cutter dedicated for shotgun barrels only and shotgun muzzle cutters with pilot
    from Brownells.12&20g. They also sell low temp silver solder thar can be used with a propane torch. Most of these I fitted with
    sights from Rem 700s, most everyone takes them off when scoped. Out of all the single barrels if I was going to do this for myself,
    i would look for a older gun in good condition. Like a Savage/Stevens 94 series or older H&R or IJ, they are much better guns and
    worth the trouble. Also the old FC barrels seem to make the best slug guns, cut off.
