Hello Everyone!

My name is Rick, I'm 19 and I own an H&R Tracker II 12ga Fully Rifled (Single Shot/Break Action) Shotgun.
(^ My Intro ^)

Tamer:

I am looking into buying another H&R and more specifically want another Single Shot/Break Action. I also am looking at it being
a Smooth Bore and 20 gauge. Currently the only one that is half decent looking is the H&R Tamer 20ga. However, I will be taking
this gun hunting with me, and I do not think that the firearm has Sling Swivel Studs. This will be a major deciding factor, as I
MUST be able to throw it over my shoulder.

Can anyone give me their view of the gun and whether it DOES or DOES NOT have the studs? Thanks!

Rick

First of all, welcome to MO! Great bunch of guys/gals on here with an amazing amount of knowledge and the willingness to help. As for the Tamer, it doesn't look like any studs are attached . http://www.hr1871.com/Firearms/Shotguns/tamer.asp but thats an easy enough fix for a couple of dollars. Nice lookin shotgun by the way!

Thanks for the warm welcome! :D

I had noticed that in the picture it dosen't show studs, but I was hoping it was one of those "This Picture May Not Match The Product Discribed" situations... How would I go about fixing that? (purchase a new stock and forend? )

Welcome to Marlin owners ;D
You can install the studs on your shotgun yourself. Studs do not cost that much and with a little patience you can do it.

The Tamer 20 was/is my first H&R. I got one a couple of months ago when they went on clearance at the local Academy. I looked at two; one was a loose goose with a bad looking finish, the other locked up real tight and had a nice finish (obviously I took the second one). I think you'll be happy with it. Now I need to get one in .410 for my son though.

Anyway, I imagine you could just screw some cheap studs in the stocks and maybe add a little epoxy or something similar if you want to be cautious. I haven't needed a sling yet, but I'll probably just rig something through the pistol grip.

Itsricmo,

Have you looked into using the additional barrel program and just get a 20 ga bbl for your 12ga?

Think about an adapter for that 20ga , to shoot 410's in it. Then when your son is bigger you don't need another barrel.
