    If any of you live in the Joliet Illinois area. Mega sports in Plainfield has a used H R trap gun for $389.00. I do not know if they are hard to find.

    I bought a brand new one for $329 and then did $750 worth of work to it. My Moma didn't raise no fool!

    Mega sports also has Federal trap loads for $60.00 a flat and Nice gortex boots or $60.00. A good reason to get out of the house.

    How is the trigger on those things?

    The gun itself is indestructible. Might be a little light, That can be fixed.

    More than one gun writer has been astonished at the quality of the trigger.

    Tron have you spent much time on the range with this gun since your last update? and I know its none of my business but has there been a rush of orders for the work or completed guns?

    Hivoltfl: The gun has was purchased from me right after the work was done (at cost). The man that owns it is a friend of mine and uses it at every ATA shoot he attends. No rush orders for that particular gun....when you add it all up, you really are better off with a used BT-99 or something along those lines. It is a good gun for the money though.

    Yes, the trigger is real nice and easy to adjust.

    Halfmile,

    I haven't looked at the trigger on one of these H&R guns, but it couldn't be very difficult to work on. If a shadetree smith can't slick up the trigger on one of these, he probably ought to turn in his license and take up knitting.

    The trigger is held in by a couple of drift pins (very easy to remove). All I did was remove a couple of coils from the spring and it brought the pull down to about 3 1/2lbs. It's very crisp with no creep.

    Tron did you use an assembly(slave)pin to hold the trigger and elevator tab in place when reinstalling?

    A shotgun/rifle Combination, very much like the on photo'd was my very first gun! And only ten day's younger then me to boot!

    Nope, I just removed it, lobbed off the coil and reinstalled it. No big deal.

    Tron,

    Do you notice a longer "lock time" on the H&R gun?
