Hello everyone. I am looking to buy a Handi Rifle in 35 Whelen and/or 44 Magnum. I prefer wood stock but will consider synthetic. Thank You

I don’t have one to give up, but I will keep my eyes open for one. I love the 44 Mag. That’s what I always start kids out with for their first rifle. I think I have bought one for all of my kids, nephews and nieces that hunt. My son is 32 and 6’3” and he still hunts with his about half the time.

Thank You Glen. I have a 45/70 and a 243 barrel. Since I have over 1000 44 mag shells and 150 35 Whelen shells I thought I would try and find something that will shoot them. I do have a 44 mag handgun :)

I got my daughter one with both the 44mag barrel and a 243 barrel. I hate you can’t just swap barrels from gun to gun. Each barrel is specific to that gun. I also have a 45-70 and I love it. I found a box is shells for it earlier this year, but I couldn’t make myself pay $75 for them. So yes, if you have shells it’s cheaper to buy the gun to go with them.

Actually the barrels are very easy to swap from one gun to another gun, Just a little careful fitting is all that is needed. But that said, it becomes specific to that frame and may or may not fit another gun frame. I do reload and barter ammo but do not ship.

I just remember I wanted to get a 35 Whalen barrel to swap out with my 45-70 and was told I would have to send the gun back to the factory to have it fitted to the gun. I decided it wasn’t worth that. I ordered my daughter’s all at one time. I wasn’t trying to hit you up for ammo, only making conversation. However, i may try to work something out with you at some point. Aren’t you in the Yazoo City area?
