I can't get an answer on this one from the manufacturer. Can barrels be interchanged on the ultra rifle. I could order a replacment and see or risk me and my friends rifle and life and limb but I don't want to. I have a .308. It's about as neet as it comes. Buddys got a 25.06. A real tack driver. Can anyone help since N.E. can't even decide who makes the thing.

Welcome Chief,

These Handi-Rifles get a little confusing as to what can interchange with what rifle.

Technically, the reciever should be sent back for fitting/checking.

There is also a question of certain recievers not having the proper strength for certain high intensity rounds.

NEF will not fit an HR barrel to one of their recievers. Even though they are the same. Marlin has bought these companies now from what I understand so things may be in a state of flux for a while.

Here is a link to a good forum specifically on this rifle. Post a question over there for possible better info and insight.

Hope it helps you.

Chief RID - Here is a web site that I made when we formed the "Buffalo Classic Shooting Society"

http://BuffaloClassic.tripod.com

You will find a link for NEF and H&R 1871.

The answer to your question is simply NO they will not interchange.

If you want extra barrels for your NEF Ultra Rifle you will have to use those provided for the Ultra Rifle by NEF.  Yes although they are the same company, but differant divisions.  Marlin does own the whole package but..... H&R 1871 is continuing to run things their at the plant.  If you still are not satisfied with my answer, call James Garrison (978) 632-9393 head CEO at H&R 1871 and maybe he can explain this better.  He is quite a nice guy to talk with.

I hope this helps.

Thanks guys. I think I got my answer. I used the Shooters sight and those guys had a lot of info. I knew I could not change barrels with handi rifles but I could not figure out why another Ultra barrel would not work. I think I know that because of the nature of these guns they all may seem interchangable and legal problems could result or have resulted. I am going to talk to the man in charge when I decide to get a 25.06 barrel for it. Thanks for the help.

I saw a notice of a H&R Shikari in 45-70 for sale the other day. What is it? Is it one of the break-down rifles H&R sold a few years ago? What is it worth?
