Need an affordable rifle? Love you some 300 Blackout ammo? Is your name Leghorn? Strike that last one. AAC showed a prototype of an H&R Handi Rifle chambered in 300 BLK about a year ago. Now it’s the real deal. Since the sneak peak, they’ve dropped the iron sights and added a length of rail. But it’s still a single shot break-open gun with a 16″ barrel. Perfect for keeping in the truck for when that stray elk wanders across the road on your way home. Or something like that. Press release after the jump.

  1. I shot this rifle at GoingQuiet.com’s silencer shoot out this weekend. It was suppressed with an AAC can and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. It was an amazing rifle, they had it mounted with a T1 Aimpoint red dot and the balance with the suppressor was great. Very quiet and a very powerful round. I can’t believe how much fun it was to shoot.

  2. Simple is good. There’s always a place in your safe for basic but well built guns. I have 2 h&r single pipe shotguns, one in 12 and one in 20 ga. Ever see the you tube where the guy uses his 12 as a muzzel loader?

  3. “For many years, the Handi-Rifle has been the single-shot choice for of the accomplished and self-assured hunter that takes pride in their marksmanship.”

    So why not provide good iron sites and skip the rail for the scope? Talk about an ego-stroking PR release. Still, I like it though I’d put iron sights on it.

    BTW, the link above isn’t working.

  4. Sounds like a winner. I had a guy at the range give me some .300 blk, it had miss fed in his AAC rifle, (He was trying to run it bone dry, brand new gun did not like that one bit.) He also gave me all his spent brass, I could count that as a discount off the price of the H&R as I would not need to buy ammo.

      • .300blk has subsonic loads. This is about as cheap as a suppressor host for .300blk gets.

        .300blk has limited uses. If you’re doing a short barreled AR-15 and/or a suppressed rifle, it’s great. Otherwise, there are better choices.

      • Aharon, I believe your assertion is correct.
        There is no advantage to this over the .308. the .308 can also be loaded subsonic to the exact same ballistics as the 300 blackout. In addition the full power .308 is much more useful in hunting applications. Further.308 is much more readily available for purchase. So you are correct, this platform makes more sense in .308.

        The true advantage of the .300 Blackout is that it will cycle the semi automatic action of the AR15 platform in either subsonic or supersonic loadings with no modification to the gas system. The subsonic .308 will not cycle the action of either an AR10 or M14 variants without modification. .300BLK has many other advantages in the AR platform that are not duplicated in the single shot Handi-rifle.
        I like the .300BLK but this rifle makes little sense to me in that cartridge.

    • Well, MSRP is only $360. Realistically we’ll probably see this rifle for what, about $250? I think that would be worth having around for that price. Assuming you dont mind its in 300 blackout.

  5. A cheap rifle which is configured to accept a suppressor (which costs 3x – 4x as much as the rifle), and is chambered in a expensive caliber? Um… ok.

  6. I have a heavy barrel in .223 and let me tell you, I can EMBARRASS people with it using Winchester white box 40 gr hp’s from Wal-Mart. One of my best range memories is how mad the dude who could not shoot his custom rifle got when I started shooting one hole groups with the H&R. This is after the objective adjustment ring on my Simmons scope fell off.

  7. .300 AAC can be bought relatively cheaply (less than $1/round) online, or you could put a can on a .30-30 H&R for shorter-range work. Either way, having a cheap threaded .30 rifle makes sense if you’ve already got the .30 can.

  8. You need to stop putting a decimal on the front of “300 Blackout”. In the proper name, it’s “300”, not “.300”. Every time I see that, I think of the laughing “.9mm” posts on this site.

    Look it up if you don’t believe me.

  9. Without a hint of irony, they say:

    “For many years, the Handi-Rifle has been the single-shot choice for of the accomplished and self-assured hunter that takes pride in their marksmanship. ”

    Yea, never mind all those people with Thompson Contenders & Encores, much less all those people with falling blocks, High Walls and so on before the Contender…

  10. This is the reason for a 300 BLK handi-rifle:

    For less than $700 you, too, can own a suppressed rifle chambered in a cartridge equivalent to the 7.62×39 that shoots subsonic and supersonic rounds. Get the handi-rifle for less than $300 and the econo-can for less than $300 incl. tax stamp and put a scope on it and, voila, the hammer strike is louder than the cartridge noise. It’s probably the least expensive way to get into silencers with a reasonably powerful cartridge.

  11. fatfingered one at adventure outdoors in smyrna, ga yesterday. they had it listed right at 300 cash price.

    it was really, really neat, but i can’t see myself buying it for anything other than plinking, and i have some .22s for that.

  12. My favorite “handi-rifle” so far w.low budget is a single-shot 12ga. with inserts
    Of various caliber: .45-70, .45Colt, .22magnum, etc,from MCA in Alaska. Strong,
    Adaptible,&cheaper than buying a new gun.
