    I would like one in 357 mag to become a 357 Max, and one in 30-30 to become a 30-30 AI.

    First stop would be to this guy - https://dandtcustomgunworks.websitet...com/categories

    A local shop has several shotguns for $129-$179. I already have several or I’d snag them.


    I bought an old 30-30 from there for $179, put Weaver bases and rings along with a Weaver 1-3x20mm scope. I was hoping it would be under 3” at 100yds, lol. My groups have ran from 3/4-1.5” at 100yds with Rem 170’s.


    The 357, 44 and 45/70 interest me.

    I would like to have one in 20 gauge with a rifled barrel. There is a little piece of state land near me that does't allow rifles.

    Not likely, no one else has any in stock, it's most likely NOS from a closed store or returned from one of the authorized factory service centers or customer, it was listed in the last catalog published by H&R in 2014, the H&R website has a bunch of dead links, pretty much moribund. When Remington closed the H&R Ilion plant in 2015 they sold or scrapped all the equipment, so to retool and start over again wouldn't be likely.

    Towards the last of H&R manufacture and sales, one could get a bolt action Savage or Mossberg cheaper. Then Rossi stepped in. Not to day that they were bad firearms or anything, but I suspect they did not survive the competition. They were tough little guns. CVA does not seem to be doing so well with their single shots either.
