Re: H&R 357
I was hoping to pick up a whole rifle. If I could get a used barrel, I'm sure I can have a gunsmith fit it up to a shotgun frame. The company, as far as I can tell won't fit a rifle barrel to a gun that was sold as a shotgun. It's puzzling, really. You would think it would be very simple for them to get into the switch-barrel market, like the T/C's, only much more economical. H&R already sells, or did sell, rifle/shotgun combo's, it would seem a small step from there to selling barrels that would interchange without having to be sent back and fitted. I think the 357 would be a fantastic gun to start mentored youth hunters with. Minimal recoil, but still pushing 158 gr bullets. And I'd have the option of low recoil 38's, 125gr. 38sp +P's, or full power 357 mag loads.
