    I broke a transfer bar on a .17hmr, total loss of firing of course. Wasn't that bad to change, made a jig from wood to drive the pins out, used a nail cut down to hold everything in place. As I recall finding the right transfer bar was hardest.

    I would sell off all the H&R/ NEF firearms of that generation. I never could see why people like them. The older H&Rs are quality made and most will function 100yrs and handed down through the generations. Single barrel shotguns of American make were all decent guns until the big corporations took over. I guess guys that aren't old enough to have been around when quality singles were made don't know what Im talking about. They could only make single barrels so cheap and when they could import $99 pumps it was the end.

    i can’t really explain what he did but it had something to do with the hammer. Dont quote me, but had to grind off the face slightly so it would get a better hit on the transfer bar/firing pin.

    all I know is I was plagued with mis-fires and I’ve had zero since he fixed it.
