Hey guys,
Recently bought an H&R 410 shotgun... has maybe 10 shells through it. I've been told this particular gun can support multiple barrels - you can send the stock/receiver to H&R and they'll sell you a "mated to the stock/receiver" high power barrel, thus turning your single shot shotgun into a single shot high powered rifle. They say the barrel comes pre-drilled and tapped for scope rings too.

For ~$100, I'm interested in following up with this, if the final outcome makes sense. Has anyone ever done this, got any experience with this? Or am I just wasting my time and money?

I don't personally know about this, but for $100 it doesn't sound like a bad option. Hopefully someone will post up that has some experience with this.

Mossberg and Remington makes interchangable barrels. Once my 500 comes in next week, I may consider getting an extra barrel. This is the best concept to come along in a long time.

H&R makes several different receivers, capable of various pressures.
Centerfire rifles use an SB2 receiver that can be fitted with both rifle and shotguns barrels (except 10 ga).
Shotguns have an SB1 receiver. Shotgun barrels (410-12 ga) can be fitted to it.
Some of the lower pressure rifle calibers and pistol calibers can be fitted to it; .357 mag, 44 mag, 30/30.
Barrel fitting is up to about $ 150 with parts labor and shipping.
When you switch barrels, you have to re-sight your rifle in.
The Handi-rifle gurus are all on the Greybeard Outdoors forum, and a lot of the more seasoned guys have given up on switching barrels.
Switching shotgun barrels is no big deal.
You can buy a used barrel in the Greybeard H&R classifieds for about $70.
I have bought and sold a few myself, but am now "handi-less".

Go to www.hr1871.com to customer service or barrel accessory program for an order form with prices.

Might want to check with Numrich Arms in New York, they sell a vast array of used gun parts and have saved a few old firearms for me with otherwise unobtainable parts. They have a website
