I spoke with new englands customer service today they told me the production line for the new handi rifle in .500S&W will run February and March so they should be available soon to those who are interested.

If a Handi can handle those pressures, I guess that sums it all up.

All my reloading manuals show the 500S&W up to 50,700psi or less, I've only seen the 60,000 figure in magazine articles, nothing in any reloading data. S&W proofed their cylinders at 71kpsi. Since NEF/H&R rifles have been built in 450 Marlin, 35 whelen, 30-06 and, 270 winchester which has max average pressures of 65kpsi, I don't see any issues with the 500S&W. H&R has already stated that the 500S&W and 7.62x39 will not be available until this summer, mostly likely the end of June, the 500 S&W both in rifle and accessory barrel.

They're available already, been available for some time, there just aren't a lot of em around. Several members at GBO have em, a couple even have 2!! The barrels are available from H&R in the acc barrel program, also...part number R03440, 22" w/sights. FYI....If you buy a new centerfire rifle between Sept 1 and Nov 30, you can get a $20 rebate from H&R...

I realize there have been some released, but only a pantry few. As for the acessory barrel, as per NEF, not yet available, they are going to fill all the orders for this item BEFORE making it available as an accessory barrel.
I work in the industry and this comes from the top....well almost the top. A company officer at Marlin in North Haven. I have been in constant contact with him since the end of last year on this item.

The rebate is VERY COOL!! I just found out about it a week or so ago!!!

Like I said, the .500 accessory barrels have been available, there are several at GBO that have had them fitted. They may well be out of em now just as they're out of .44mag barrels. It also may be that you talked to someone who didn't actually know, it has happened before on numerous occasions that erroneous info was passed on or there was a misunderstanding. If you talked to Jennifer or Gordon at H&R/NEF, you'll get good info, anyone else may not know. So much for the Marlin rep knowing what's going on at H&R/NEF!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I called H+R/NEF on Wednesday to check on availability of the .500 S+W Handi. They told me that I would need to have my gun dealer call about an expected shipping date if I wanted to order one. I also asked about it's availability as an accessory barrel and they said they do have them ready to go. I ordered the 30-06 and will send it off for the accessory .500 barrel.

Their turn around on barrel fittings right now is about as short as it gets, a week or 2 plus shipping time!!!

The accessory barrel discount offer is good until Sep 30 and the rebate is good for the month of September, so I may just have ta buy another rifle or 2 and have some barrels fitted!! $20 off on a rifle and $20 off of an accessory barrel is a hard offer to pass up!! I can always use a few more... :lol: :lol: :lol:
