I would like to hear feedback from people who have sent their frames in for fitting with another shotgun barrel. Did they do a good job and is the fit and finish worth the money?
It really depends what you want. Obviously, a 12GA mod choke barrel doesn't make sense, I can buy those for $75-100 complete. I'm sending my NEF .410 to get a .357 mag barrel fitted.Fit and finish not an issue, for what you spend for shipping and cost of barrel and fitting many feel just buy another single shot and have another complete gun. You will find quite a bit of info on this if you go to Greybeard Outdoor forums, whole forum just on H&R shotguns.
@ Dale; I have two rifles ( NEF-.280 REM, @ H&R Ultra .308WIN. Sent in the NEF action for a .223 Bull brl., .444Mar.brl., & .30-30 brl. fitting along with separate fore- grips for each. They will interchange with each action so tightly that a piece of Saran Wrap will not slide between barrel and receiver. Can't ask for a better fit. Turnaround was fairly quick too. I'd say go for it. I'm sending the NEF back presently for a .44 Mag brl. to be re-chambered to .445 Super Mag. upon return. Good luck with your rifle.I would like to hear feedback from people who have sent their frames in for fitting with another shotgun barrel.
