    Not a big loss in my opinion considering the functional quality ran the gambit from this is neat,:) to I've been ripped off. :(

    In other words the rifle was freedom group'ed to death? Sounds like Marlin, Remington, Bushmaster, and the list goes on...

    And just to be clear, this doesn't make existing handi-rifles ultra rare collectors items. But you know some jack-wagon will pull that in the classifieds and ask $500 for his no-longer-made, ultra rare, collectible handi-rifle...

    Does that mean my H&R Single Shot 12-Gauge is worth a fortune now? :rolleyes:

    I'm kind of sad to see them go. I can say my shotgun is a very nice gun for the money, even the wood stock is well done. All for about $125. Good deal to me.

    Perhaps that is troubling for some. I can't imagine why though! They have invented these things called repeating rifles, some time ago, actually!

    I have been looking at a CVA breaktop stainless rifle chambered in 444 Marlin. It's a caliber I want to try before spending on a more expensive rifle.

    I'd love to see Oregon adopt a set of primitive rifle rules and deer hunts. It would be nice to use my #1 Remington rolling block sporter (modified for .357 Mag) in a special deer hunt.

    I forgot about the t/v contenders.

    By saudi prince priced I mean the double rifle break action ones that average about $10,000 though I could get a low end Sabatti for about $3000

    The shop up here just sent one of the new Remlins back cause it was so bad. The guy went and shot it and the screw for the barrel band broke:eek:
    I'm guessing they may go from $150 to $175 but $500?:rolleyes:

    I love the concept and idea of a primitive rifle hunt, but, at least for elk, by the time I get to 1st season elk rifle, the elk have already been pushed around by so many hunts that a loud breath will send them running for 12 miles.

    But I really do like the concept. I'd love to hunt with a sporterized trap door Springfield or something!

    I have two that work very well, a 17 mach II and a 17 HMR with two other barrels, 22 lr & 22 mag. Hate to see'm go but I'll let you have them for $500 each, $100 for each barrel and $25 for the barrel bag, being as rare as they are and all. I'll be waiting patiently by my PM message.

    I had a 30-06 handi rifle. Every time I fired it It felt like a clydesdale roundhouse kicked my shoulder.
    Sold it quickly.

    Already has this - for muzzle-loading and nothing prevents you from using your #1 Remington rolling block sporter (modified for .357 Mag) in any rifle deer hunt you draw for or general. I understand where you are 'going' with the 'primitive' issue but a SS centerfire cannot really be considered 'primitive' - and as previously mentioned

    Had many Handis from 22 Hornet to 30-30. Only one I kept is the 44 Mag, cause it's fun to shoot & fairly accurate too.
