Anybody know anything about NEF?
Before anybody goes movin' this over to the BP forum, hear me out. I was thinking of asking the 'rents for a BP gun for my birthday this year. They said they'd probably get it for me if it was under $200(I may have to chip in a bit). Here are my questions:
1. Has anyone had any experience with New England Firearms?
I was thinking of buying myself a handi-rifle in 45-70 and then maybe having ma and da get it fitted with a Black Powder Barrel for my birthday.
2. If I got a spare forearm solely for the BP barrel, could I have a gunsmith convert it back and forth between the 45-70 and the BP barrel? Or, could I do it myself?
3. Are these rifles accurate? I'd like to be able to hunt out to about 75 yrds open sights with either the BP or the 45-70. It goes without saying that I'd have to have considerable practice with either to do this.
The idea of having two barrels for one gun is awesome, but not if I have to wait six weeks turn around time every time I want to change them.
I know that the logical answer would be to just by a T/C with a couple different barrels, but unfortunately, I'm not independently wealthy.
