    Default 500 S&W handi-rifle

    There is another one of these at Chimo Guns in Wasilla.

    I know this is a shameless plug for Chimos but that is where I bought mine.

    That is a great camo job on your rifle, it looks just like a King salmon.

    I called them a couple weeks ago about a handi rifle. He said they had a couple. I was mainly getting prices from around town. I think I'm gonna get one from Boondocks. They were about $30 cheaper. How do you like yours? I have a S&W 500 so it would be nice to have the same ammo for the rifle.

    Mine is great.

    It is funner than heck to shoot.

    The factory sights are junk in my opinion. The ones on my gun were made of plastic. I suppose they would have worked fine if I would have left them alone.

    I tried to put a scope on the rifle. First the rear sight was in the way. I removed the sight and then the scope would not stay put from the recoil so I removed the scope and put the sight back on, or at least tried to. I had the bright idea of putting the sight where the scope base is for a longer sight radius. I had to add some hole in the sight and the sight just fell apart as I tried to tighten the screws.

    What ended up working great was to buy a set of TRUGLO sights made for muzzleloading rifles and they went on without incident. They were about $40 for a set and well worth it.
