H&R 158 Hornet
I just bought a H&R Model 158 in 22 Hornet. The outside is very good, but the barrell shows a little pitting close to the chamber end. I am slowly getting it clean, but it will take a week or so. The serial number is BA407xxx. I would like to know the date of manufacture, as I have been told I can't get a new barrel for it if it is too old. I haven't given up on this barrel yet, but I would like a 20 ga. bbl for it also. If I have to, where could I find a Hornet bbl. for it other than the factory?
