Advanced Armament Corp Handi-Rifle

The Handi-rifle is in the foreground shown with an AAC Silencer. An AR-15 in the background.

Not sure if it’s a recurring theme yet, but there have been a few companies at SHOT here talking about their single-shot break-action rifles. There’s nothing super new for AAC, but they talked to me about their “Handi-Rifle” which comes in 300 AAC BLACKOUT.

It’s got a threaded 16.2″ barrel with a 1:7 twist. It weighs 6.9 lbs and felt very solid in my hands. It would probably make a very nice hunting rifle.

    You should do a write-up of that sweet shorty in the background when you get a chance. I’d like to know how it compares to similar Noveske and DD offerings.

    If only it weren’t black, suppressed and railed, Senator Feinstein would love it.

      But it’s a military round*!

      * Yes, I know .300AAC isn’t acctually military, just FUDding it up. 😉

    That’s kinda cool.
    Low tech means more reliability to me. It will probably last forever.

    This falls into the “neat idea, no apparent market” column for me. If it was a take-down rifle, I could see it being semi-plausible as a survival gun, as .300BLK is a good hunting round. But without that, it seems like a cheap toy for people who just happen to love .300BLK. *shrugs*

    I have a handi rifle in 44 mag. Its one of the easiest guns to shoot around. This might not have a purpose but it would probably be fun. Barrel Accessory Program…?

    they should offer a version with integral silencer.

    “This falls into the “neat idea, no apparent market” column for me” I guess if stricter gun laws pass then there will be an apparent market.
