I was in a gun shop and notice that many of the H & R and or NEF pistols that might have cost you about $90.00 way back when are now worth est..$389.00.. Now that's what the guns shop was selling them for.. so if you sold it to a gun shop you ain't going to get that amount.. However for a collector they might pay that price.

Aw, rats! Sold a perfectly good (and very accurate) NEF heavy barrel in 223, to another member here a few years back. Now they're collectible.



Nothing wrong with it, just didn't need it after finding a good deal on a barely-used M700 varminter in 223, already had two semis in that chambering at the time.

Still have an NEF combo gun around here somewheres. 22 Hornet and 20ga barrels in a handy Cordura padded carrying case.

Some of the old H&R revolvers especially older target 22 lr models can get a bit high price. The guns mentioned like the 10 ga and 223 are not collector pieces. The rifles they make are however acurate and reliable and shoot reallly well especially when usaing reloads.

I went to the range with the .223 NEF, 50 yds, same hole!! Had to disassemble the trigger works again to lessen the pull. I'm now at 1 1/4 pounds. I believe I have the newer model with a hole plug on the forward right side of the receiver, next to the pin which holds the front of the trigger guard. Super shooting rifle for poking a round through brush openings for eye shots (head shots).

I had a H & R 16 gauge bolt action. The bolt was real hard to work.. The stock actually cracked. Something just was not seated in there right for all the problems with it... I had it when I was a teenager.. I used it but sold it for about $20.00. It was a tube feed..I killed things with it but just not truly a repeater so to speak because of how hard it was to eject a shell out of the chamber fast.. I probably paid $50.00 for it but when I saw the stock was broke I just sold it in about 1973.

Sold a nice H&R marked bolt action 30-06 earlier this year. Pencil barrel, very light weight rifle and kicked like a mule with my 150gr loads.

Don't know when H&R marketed them, would guess back in the 70s, as I'd never seen one before I got it years ago. It was built on a Zastava "Mauser" action, same as the old Interarms Mark X actions from that time period.
