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.

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!
