Looking for some help on a H&R 1871 Ultra Slug Gun. Ganders has it on sale now for 179.00. I am thinking this would make a good entry level for my grandson. The reveiws look pretty good it comes with a scope mount which I was also wondering about what kind of scope would be recommended?

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Bob

H&R makes 3 models of the Ultra Slug --The Ultra Slug Hunter Deluxe, The US Hunter , & The USH Thumbhole. They also have an Ultra Light model. The Ultra Slug Hunter is available in 12 or 20 gauge adult or 20 gauge compact. Their website is Hope this helps you out. We have 4 H & R's in the family---2-12 gauge pumps & 2-12 gauge single shots. Great guns for the money, no complaints at all.

I bought the 20 gauge and put a nice Nikon scope on it. It kills deer just as well as my previous slug guns!

Forget entry level. I know a few well seasoned hunters who use them, as well as myself. They are tack drivers and are a solid, consistent shot. Don't be fooled by the price it is a great gun and have been toying with buying a 20ga to go wi my 12ga. My scope cost more than the gun and wouldn't hunt with anything else. I think it also would make a great starter gun in the fact that it is a single shot and would make the shooter focus on the first shot and not thowing a bunch of slugs at a target.
