    Looks better than some single shot trap guns I've seen.

    It does have interchangeable chokes. Anyone make a release trigger for this gun?

    How about a PFS stock or Soft Touch?

    Ya know, we shouldn't make fun about it. If the stock is designed properly so the recoil is more manageable, and if the price is right, then this might help future trapshooters into our ranks. Look at some of the other shotgun makers. They don't have a low end entry level trap gun. Mossberg used to make one (based on the 500 pump). Even Remington doesn't make an actual youth model or entry level trap gun.

    I didn't see a price...so at this point, it's hard to say how this fits price-wise. That said,I'd like to applaud their efforts to offer an entry-level gun for anyone interested in our sport.It seems to have a number of features most shooters find desireable and the H & R line generally offers a lot of value for the money.

    I think it's great! I'm in full agreement with Brian. I bet it's a HELL of a lot better than some of that Turkish or Russian junk on the market.

    If it came with a 34" barrel and maybe a case hardened receiver I'd probably buy one. Can you imagine the looks on the Trapfield? My very first shotgun was an H&R 12 Gauge that kicked me senseless. There are numerous theories as to how much this affected me for the rest of my life.

    ABSOLUTELY!!!!!!

    Something like this has the potential to get new shooters introduced to the game; IMHO, that is a good thing.

    Rem,

    You are 100% correct. Maybe some of the other Gun makers should take notice and help make our sport more affordable.

    Does anyone have any pricing information on this gun? I would be interested in buying a couple. One for me, and one for our club to use as a loaner gun to new shooters.......Thanks.......Dan Thome (Trap2)

    The other gun makers are only interested in trying to get 10-12K out of you! This one probably makes more sense thatn paying over 8 Grand for a Ljutic! Just a few years ago when Ljutics were between 4-5K new and when MX2000's were selling at the end of the Grand for $4995. (Not 10 or 15yrs ago either, was it about 4 or 5?) you could think thats not too bad, but now some prices are just stupid. Over 3 Grand for a Browning? REALLY NUTS!

    I didn't see any pricing on the website. The site also lists it as a monte-carlo stock but it doesn't look one to me. I may buy one just to have it for when my grand daughter is old enough to shoot. They can't be much over $500 if that, since most of their line sells for less than $300.00. I just checked one of my distributor's catalogs they aren't listed there yet. Joe B.

    Based on Mr. Bowen's overload test they should be just about indestructable.

    Their 260 dollar Varmint rifles are a great addition to that sport. This is in the same vein.

    Someone hired a very smart marketing manager.

    Isn't H&R owned by Marlin, which is now owned by Remington?? Finally, Remington once again has a decent Trap gun!

    H&R is not going to be able to make this gun fast enough to keep up with demand for the beginner crowd. This little gun will occupy a great little niche. Also well built internally. Very few parts to wear. Price will be reasonable compared to this other Russian crap thats out there. Todd

    Tron,

    I do believe you are right, Remington recently purchased Marlin which owned N.E.F. and H & R
