I have been using a Rossi r17s break action .17 hmr for badgers and close range coyotes. It has worked well for what I need. I am currently looking to match it with a break action .22-250. It does not have to be a Rossi, but that would be great. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Tyson

I like the looks of a New England Firearms handi rifle but have no experience with them. Are they any good and where is the best place to buy such guns?

The NEF rifles were good guns, the last ones made varied in quality. Your best bet, in a modern, in production rifle, would be the Henry Single shot in .223 or 243, they dont make it in22-250. I had one of the Henrys in .243 and .223, both shot 3/4" or less groups, out of the box with a 3x9x40 scopes, I cant shoot much better than that.

I was at Antique and Modern Firearms in Lexington today, they had a NEF .243 with a laminated stock, excellent condition, no name cheap 3x9 scope, $300. I went thru my barrel stash today and I have a Savage 22-250 sporter with less than 100 rds thru it. I have a Savage .270, with good barrel, I could swap the barrel out, and adjust the trigger, all you would need would be a scope. I could do$375 on it.

Would there be any shipping cost or is that included. Are the barrels easy to change should I decide to put something else on it? Thanks for your thoughtfulness
