I am thinking about using a Handi rifle in 38/357 as a host for subsonic in a Octane 9. I have owned some Handi rifles in the past but it was years ago. I know that you can send in the receiver and have new barrels (38/357) fitted. I also read that the 357 barrel can be fitted to both the center fire receiver and the weaker shotgun barrel. I think the heat treating is different. But i see some Topper shotguns fro really cheap, $75ish. Does anyone know if these can take the 357/38 barrels and work as a host?

I'd call NEF. I've always heard the shotgun receivers can only have shotgun barrels fitted. Not sure it would be cheaper than buying a Handi Rifle with the 357 barrel already.
