I wish someone would bring back the H&R single shots and 22 revolvers

I just have a soft spot for them. I have a select few, and the Henry Single Shots have been a worthy replacement, but they are just not the same.

By all accounts the H&R single shots went away because they were viewed as entry level rifles and they just could not compete with the entry level single shots. So don’t bring back the base models, bring back the Classic and Ultra. Price them to be competitive with the Henry single shots. I believe they could hold their own.

The Deluxe Classic was their line of shotguns. Bring them back in all gauges from 410 to 12, maybe even 10 ga. One in 28 gauge would be great for upland and doves. Thev16 gauge would be a good Al around. If geese were on the menu, the 10 would shine.

The Buffalo Classic was offered in a carbine length in 45 Colt, and the rifle model was offered in 38-55 and 45-70. I would bring the rifles back in rimmed cartridges from the 17 Hornet to the 45-120. I would love to have a 22 Hornet and 30-30 Winchester with 26" barrels. The Buffalo Classic Carbine should be chambered for rimmed cartridges from 32 S&W to 50 S&W. I would love to have one in 32 H&R Magnum.

The Ultra could be chambered in rimless cartridges from the triple deuce (222 Remington) to 35 Whelen.I will keep my 25-06 thank you! The Ultra came withtwo stock options, Monte Carlo and Thumbhole.

And the revolvers. My favorites are .22 Long Rifles, but maybe these could be converted to w H&R magnum as well.
The 999 Sportsman was just a good all around revolver and the 903 was for those who wanted a scoped hunting revolver.

I still have my H&R 12 single shot. I had two Handi Rifles in .223 Remington, and both of them shot very well. I miss those two, and should have never sold them off.

Yeah, the Henry's are nice...and expensive. Plus, good luck finding any of their single shot rifles in a gun store. I checked with two locally about ordering one in .223 Remington, and both said it would probably take 5-6 months to even get one in. Guess Henry is busy.

I have seen some CVA single shot rifles about, but don't know much about their quality.
I got several H&R 12 ga and 20 ga shottys for $70 to $90 several years ago. My FFL bought all the guns from game and fish that they used for hunters safety. They got a semi trailer full of different guns. G&F bought new guns to replace the old ones.
Damn! Wish I would have been there too!
CVA has some decent looking single shot rifles on their website, but don't know about the quality. They only had one in a caliber that I would be interested in, the .243 Winchester.
I found a like new engraved 999 sportsman. Asking price was $999. No, I did not buy it.

Thing is, H&R had a fairly large following. Prices on handi rifles have gone up considerably since they went under. I have been finding them from $400 to $600 depending on condition, and more for certain chamberings.
Man, that is crazy.
