Would anyone happen to know if (and where?) you can still buy H&R Handi rifles for sale in Australia? Or are they badged as something else over here??

I got a message back from Raytrade, and they said the factory had stopped making them and they hadn’t seen any for 8 years. But then blokes seem to be able to find one here or there, like you duncan61. I’ll have a good ask around at Huntexpo in Melbourne this weekend and see what I can find out.

Neat little guns, values on them are climbing slightly in the USA as they are out of production and I think the factory that made them has even closed it's doors.

Web site still claims they are the largest producer of single shot rifles in the world.Who maintains a website if they are out of business

I would assume if a business stops trading the website would be shut down am I wrong??And I dont get the NZ reference.Enlighten me.Is it a tongue in cheek reference to the fact they have no access to semiautos??I really enjoyed my single shot Hornet and got a fox the first day I used it at the dairy farm where I worked.I rode the Quad out to a back paddock and zeroed of the seat.It had open sights on the way back a fox came out of the ditch and bounded away and I let one go sitting on the Quad and hit it in the back.Freaky shot as it was going out of sight and I counted down and let one go where I thought it would reappear.Doubt I could ever do it again.Anyhoo I sold it to a buddy as it was stolen on a community where I worked and the local people had carved there initials on the woodwork.
