Trigger pull on H&R Ultra Rifle


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I have a H&R Ultra Rifle in 243 and shot it for the first time yesterday. The gun is surprisingly accurate, really really accurate. I must say i was very surprised how accurate it is. The problem is the trigger pull, it's like trying to pick up a 15lb bowling ball with one finger. I looked at the GBO site and there really wasn't that much info there about how to decrease the pull. Does anyone know of a good way to fix this without breaking something, that was the risk they were saying on the GBO site. There was a way to decrease the pull some but you might break something in the process of doing this. Any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated. P.S. I think i might just get the 26 inch 280 Remington barrel for this gun also. Thank you much

The trigger on my son's H&R 243 was pretty decent right out of the box, but if I had a problem with it, I would send it to David White of D&T Custom gunsmithing.

If you send it in to get another barrel, the factory will do the trigger job for you if requested. Don't know if there is any extra charge. Call customer service. Goat

Trigger pulls seems to have loosened up just a tad, maybe just needed shooting some. It was the first time to shoot the last time i posted this. I must say had i known these guns were so freakin accurate i would have invested in them much sooner. This 243 with a 24 inch bull barrel will just drive finish nails. My niece in her first time to ever even shoot a gun of any kind shot a 5 shot group of 1 1/2 inches. I almost passed out ! Her brother hunts with me and can shoot the you know what out of a gun as can my other niece and nephew who were on the rifle team all 4 years they were in high school. Those two went to Nationals all 4 years and placed in the top 10 all 4 years each.

Yep, the H&R's aren't pretty, but if you had an equation that takes into account group size and cost of the weapon, it would have to be just about the best value on the market today. It shoots as good as, or better than, guns costing 3 or 4 times as much. There just isn't much to complain about.

Hello broom_jm
I think you are confused here as to what was an Original Ultra rifle made by H&R. The Original's were a custom made Rifle that H&R sold. The Only thing H&R about them was The recoil Butt pad and their company Logo. The action's were FN Mauser style Made In Belgium mated to a fully adjustable Trigger made in Finland by Sako. The barrels are Match Target grade air Gap sporter style Barrel's made by Douglas Barrels. The stock's were supplied by Fagen and are called The Aristocrat Model. H&R Had Woman in the factory apply the fine line checking on the stocks. Here is an Original H&R Ultra-Rifle chamberd in Winchester .308 Caliber shown with a Very early Leupold 3-9 scope. Regards, Hammerdown

That must be old, but we were talking about the single shot break open action H&R's. That's a nice looking rifle you have there, bet the action is butter smooth huh ?

Hello Fred
Yes the action is superior in this rifle like all of the other part's. They Just are not making gun's like this anymore and these are very difficult to locate. Regards, Hammerdown

I don't know...the Model 70's being turned out by FN, today, are probably just as well-built as the fine rifle pictured above. Both are certainly superior to an H&R Handi-rifle or an Ultra Hunter, in the same way a Cadillac or Mercedes is superior to a Chevy Cavalier or other inexpensive, but completely serviceable vehicle.

Also, just to set the record straight, H&R is currently building a single-shot, break-action rifle called the "Ultra Hunter". Neither the OP, nor I, was confused in any way; we knew exactly what we were talking about.

H&R Ultra Rifles

I'm sure your FN-built rifle is of exceptional quality, but I would also bet dollars-to-doughnuts that it doesn't shoot groups that are twice as good as the inexpensive, entry-level guns H&R has been putting out in recent years.
