I know they are having a huge RECALL on the 35 WHELENS HANDI RIFLES so you might check on that ASAP. Had a Encore 35 and had so much trouble with the MGM barrel I sold the gun and all.

Good luck with yours and eat your wheeties when you go sight it in.

He aint kidding bro!...If its one of those pretty light handi's its gonna be time to "man-up" and take some pain sighting in at the bench

Good Luck
figured you would get a kick out of that, my 444 kicks enough and wouldn't want to shoot a 35 in the handi

This is old news....almost 2 years ago

when the Handi rifle craze happened...H&R had problems with headspacing on 35 Whelen's

They recalled em and fixed the problem....that's why I said I'd be leary of a used one...
I have heard that it was new and not the one from two years ago. but it is not on there website. it is on other forums that I am on and people have sent them back and i know one of the ones that has sent his back.

If I owned one I would def check into it before I used it. :2c:
Wsm they made a bunch last year for a few retailers amd this year they made a bunch more.
