Hey does anyone have this rifle? I am looking at buying one of these as well as the Tamer 20 gauge. I was wondering if anyone has shot this gun accurately at 100yds? Also, has anyone had any problems with the open sights? I have read a lot that the wrong sight gets put on the gun at the factory.

I bought the 22lr 410 combo a few years back the 410 is the only barrel that gets used now.If this is for a kid I would get a chipmunk for a small kid or a model 60 if for a larger.As far as accuracy I mounted the scope but never shot for groups.Do you have the frame and looking for the barrel or contemplating the whole gun?

Well, I'm 5'9" and 160lbs. What do you classify that as? haha. I do not have a frame I can put the rimfire on, so I am looking at buying the whole gun. I am not aware that H&R has a "versa pack" out with a .410 and 22LR? I know Rossi does but it is in youth model. Even though you don't/didn't shoot for groups, would you say that it would shoot 100yds accurately if I needed it too?

I believe there is a reason why few .22s are chambered for all 3 cartridges anymore. In my limited experience, rifles that are chambered for .22lr alone consistantly shoot more accurately than the latter. Not to mention the cost variance between the loads. I have a Remington Speedmaster and used to have a Winchester 190 - both which could accept all 3 loads and they can't come close to my other rimfires loaded only for the longrifle. Be this headspacing or bolt variance or whatever, that's just the way they shoot. ;)

The barrel measures 5/8 at the muzzle,has a target crown,is 20 inches long and I would say it has accuracy potential.My barrel is marked 22 lr and has plenty of girth.Dave
