Found this while browsing gun broker.

Single shot 7.62x39 rifle on an NEF single shot frame.  Interesting piece.

Link no good...I think this is what you were trying for.

Funny stuff....what makes a Handi-Rifle quality as a "tactical, sniper rifle"
And it surely can't be TOO limited in production--since walmart carries it!
(for $199 no less)

"it's gotta be a sniper rifle.  that little piece of paper says it is!"

even at $200 that seems kinda high.  The shotguns like that only sell for $80 or so.

On Graybeard's outdoors, a few threads about this particular weapon state that it wont reliably strike military 7.62x39 primers enough to fire.
It works well with American made 7.62x39 rounds. I think the bore is .308 and not 3.11. The firing pin was measured by a few owners.
It measured too short for military 7.62x39. I bet this was done to discourage using non-American cartridges. I think they even warn not to in the instructions.  

From what I understand, the Thompson Center G2 7.62x39 custom barrels are not to be used with full power rounds.

 might be the only option for an inexpensive break open rifle in 7.62x39,
but i do not know much about it.

Yes, but my understanding is that the shotgun recievers are not hardened as the rifle recievers are---Therefore, you cannot have a shotgun reciever re-barreled for rifle calibers....but you can have a shotgun barrel put on a rifle reciever.

The .308 vs .311 thing has always been an issue with US made stuff.  I think the Ruger Mini-30 had the same issues.

That makes sense about the shotgun receivers not being as hard, sinc shotguns are usually lower pressure - but it still takes the same amount of machining, steel, parts, etc to make it.  Hardening isn't that expensive of a process.

A rifle like this is the kind of thing I would buy if I happened to come across it at the right price, not something I'd go shopping for.

Just another way they can save a buck for more profit.
I wonder if anyone has called the guy an idiot for using that sales pitch.

Depends on when it was produced.  I bought a Mini-30 in 2000 that has a .311 bore.  They used to be .308, and I'm not sure when Ruger switched.

CZ 527 carbine. Darn fine 7.62 x 39 bolt gun. About the best there is outside of the SKS/AK. Kind of pricey, but it is the best.

I traded mine away. Not that it wasn't any good, but I had no real use for it. Workmanship is just SUPERB! Believe it or not, but the recoil on the 7.62x39 is fairly stout when shot through a non semi auto action. Feels something like a 30/30. :x

While I don't own a 7.62 x 39mm 527 I have handled one. I do own a CZ bolt action and the workmanship is out of this world. Really puts Rem/Win/Moss/etc to shame. And I DON'T like to admit that either. It's a shame we can't build a firearm with old world craftsmanship like CZ.

We can build a firearm with that kind of craftsmanship, but most people wouldn't want to pay for it.  Czech labor is cheaper than US labor.

I've got a 20 gauge and a 12 gauge in that frame.  Nice classic looking single shots.  That rail they have on the one in the auction looks like ass.  As far as well made US rifles goes, Henry's are also nicely made.
Cunning phrase designed to irritate people or make them smile goes here.

When did single-shot break-action rifles become "tactical"? ;)   I guess if your tactics were to shoot very slowly and reload very slowly, it would be extremely well suited for that!
