H and R 10 gauge...

Thought I would peek my head in here for some advice. I have a H and R 10 gauge that just sits in the safe. I picked it up with a bunch of others from a guy. Well, I have no use for it. It is in really great shape. Just one mark on the stock from another gun rubbing it. Any idea what I should ask for it? I like to shoot it but I have more "useful" shotguns.

Plus, there is a really nice rifle calling my name at the moment.



Thanks in advance,

Beentown

Worthless. I will pay you shipping to my door.
Sorry, no knowledge to be of any more help. Bet it kicks pretty hard.

200

These sell around the south for 200 bucks new.
That reciever can be fitted to any rifle caliber by the factory.(i think)
Also a heavy 12 slug barrel.
Does it have a screw-in choke?

You might see if you can get one of the small-gauge reducers and drop it down to a 20 or 28 gauge.

Are they both 10 ga?? Just noticed the top one has tan wood and a chopped off foregrip? Is it a 12? Is it a full choke? Is it also H & R?

The top one was a ham...always trying to get in the picture. Actually I think that one is a Sears and Roebuck It has a buldge in the last two inches of the barrel so it now hangs over my uncles loading bench.

It is on its way Actually, the kick is not bad. The gun is absolutely huge. It is so long and heavy that it helps tame the recoil. Full choke barrel...no tubes. Was going to use it for turkey this year.

I was thinking of putting it up on a local gunboard for $150. Sound fair? If I sell it I am dropping the rifle for now and buying my Dad his CCW class for Christmas.

Oh Hell Brent, Why not go all out and spring for the tax stamp. I'm thinking 9 inch barrel with a "mare's leg" type stock left behind.

Buy some 10 ga slugs and make sure you post video .

turkey gun

I see one now and then as a turkey gun. Seems like they made one w/ a slightly shorter (26?) bbl as well. The ones I've handled are suprisingly heavy.
For less weight and more versatility, a 3" 12 ga w/ all the advantages of modern shotshells, probably offers as much killing power/ range as the old 10 ga lead loads, w/ less recoil and a lighter, repeating firearm.

Now, a 10 ga slug, that is interesting.........

HR1871 still makes a ten gauge "Waterfowler" with 30" barrel and modified choke (fixed, I think, not sure).

Shotgun receivers can not accept rifle barrels. Maybe the 10 gauge can.
Ohh hog dogs...

I have an H&R model 147 10 gauge. I think it’s called a Sportsman long shot or something along that line. I would check but it’s buried at the very back of my gun safe at the moment. It has a 36 inch barrel and a full choke barrel with no choke tube. I used to use it for late season goose hunting when non toxic shot wasn’t required, and it was truly awesome for long shots on geese. I haven’t used it for a number of years, but have been thinking about getting some bismuth shot and reloading some of the hulls I have. It patterned beautifully with copper plated lead magnum BB shot, and I have been curious to see what it would do with a load of smaller shot for maybe turkey hunting. It’s a bit unwieldy due to the barrel length, but great for leading birds on the wing. Due to the weight it’s not all that bad for recoil either, but it is still a little stout. Anyone ever tried one of these on anything besides geese?

John, Here is the NEF info... I guess only rifle receivers can be fitted with shotgun barrels...
I may try to call them to determine if it is set in stone...

Quote:
Barrel Accessory Program

* Additional barrels may be added to firearms of our manufacture since 1987 only, with a serial number that begins with N or H. We do not install additional barrels on any other manufacturer’s firearms.
* Additional barrels are available as additional barrels only. We will not exchange barrels for existing barrels on shotguns and rifles, as it will change the model.
* Rifle frames may be fitted with additional rifle, shotgun, and muzzleloader barrels.
* Shotgun frames may be fitted with additional shotgun and muzzleloader barrels only.
* We do not sell additional barrels outright. All barrels must be factory fitted.
* We do not sell barrel blanks or do custom calibers.
* In order to obtain an additional barrel(s), the stock, forend and frame (receiver) must be sent to us so they may be properly hand-fitted to the barrel, to be sure they are correctly head-spaced and proof-tested.
* Hammer Spurs Sold Separately from Barrel

I happened have a 2009 H&R catalog and the receiver type for the 10 gauge, and a couple of the 12 gauge Ultra-Slug Hunters, is published as SB2 (as opposed to SB1 for the other shotguns). The SB2 code indicates the same higher grade receiver that the centerfire rifles have. However, that doesn't necessarily mean they will fit extra rifle barrels, or any other barrels for that matter, to the 10 gauge frame. It may have some dimensional differences that preclude H&R from doing that.

10 ga's are good turkey guns if you dont mind haulin' the weight around.

I've got a 10ga Pardner that I "customized" into a turkey gun. Min has a much shorter barrel than the one you described though (18" or 20")
- red-dot scope
- textured grip and fore-end
- camo paint job
- Kick's Gobblin' Thunder choke tube
- Sim's Recoil Pad
It's definately a shoulder cannon, but it thumps on both ends. I flat tracked a hen with an 8inch beard last spring @ 55yrds
