500 S&W Handi Rifle

Anybody ever see any of these for sale? I'd like to have one but I never see any.

I know that lots of guys liked the handi rifles however if you can find one they bring a decent price used. The Encore is a great gun its a little pricey but better in the long run , plus you can get lots of barrels and calibers .

I can vouch for MGM. My 357 barrel for my contender is a custom MGM. Good barrel.

MGM is a great barrel!!!!!! every tc encore rifle that i've use/used was MGM.

MGM makes a handgun or a rifle barrel. the rifle barrel is a 16 1/4" thru 27" barrel.
