Walmart can order me a "Handi rifle" (New England Arms I think) in .223 for just under $200 and I was wondering if anyone had/has one and how they are accuracy and durability wise. I have a free source of Lake City .223 (84-9X manufacture) from a bud and I just want a .223 plinker thats cheap but will shoot decent. $200 is my price range and I can order it local.   Please no "save up and get XXXXX rifle".  Thanks guys...


BTW I had a account on here b4 but its gone and I had to make this one, I had 300+ posts b4.   Oh well.

If its the rifle I am thinking of it is very
accurate and the bonus is the receiver will
accept barrels of different calibre like the
Encores. I am told you have to send the receiver
to the mfg. to have extra barrels fitted.
It sounds cool to me.

I had one in 22 Hornet/20 Gauge.It shot ok with most loads not a tackdriver but fun.It could have been because it was a hornet.223 should shoot pretty good,heavy barrel ect.If you buy a high intensety ctg. you can send it in to get a diffrent barrel.44mag/45-70/shotgun.If you buy one I just mentioned you have to stay with the milder rounds.Marlin just bought them out.
