    Default replacement barrels for NEF

    i heard that remington has purchased new england firearms. are they still fitting different caliber barrels to nef handi rifles? are there any other barrel makers/gunsmiths who can fit rifle barrels to nef actions? outside of the obvious headspace issues, why couldnt any nef barrel be made to fit any nef action? thanks

    See: http://www.hr1871.com/Support/accessoryProgram.asp

    The factory wants to fit the barrels.

    Parts differences are in the manual:

    That is right, the shotgun receivers are cast iron while the rifles are steel. The rifles are blued while the shotgun only receivers are case hardened since cast does not blue well. Lots of difference in the strength of the two.
