The German fellow on here just got one. I believe his handle is Keirrmeister or something like that. You might want to contact him and see how he likes his.

Handi-Rifle

Hi wisconsin deerslayer!

I'm the german guy who bought a Handi Rifle a month ago. Mine has .30-30 cal. But I think there is no big difference in handling. It has a pretty thick barrel, but is not to heavy for carrying in the woods. You can real quiet open and close the break open system. Cocking the hammer works also quiet with the right technique. The trigger is short a dry, not too hard. Accuracy is very well. Your modell has a weaver mount without rings.

Regards

Handi-Rifle

Yesterday I was at the range with my .30-30 handi rifle. I tested it at 50 meters with PMC flat nose bullets. I was able to get 1'' groups (3 shots) from the bench with my 4x32 scope. Then at 100m the grouping opened a bit to about 2'' with three shots. So all in all a very accurate rifle. I think with reloading the groups could be made a bit better.
Because of the thick barrel it starts getting warm after 10 shots or so and then not really.
Looking forward how my .45-70 handi rifle will shoot. Plan to use reloaded bp cartridges with lead bullet.

Regards

Kirrmeister
