NEF Caretaker

I came across a new item, used, that I have never heard of. It's marked ,'' NEF H&R Caretaker. It's a thumbhole black plastic stock with a trapdoor for storage 20 ga 3'' mag with a dull nickel finish . Anybody ever hear of this and what it may be selling for ? It would make a good little stash or truck gun . Thanks for any help !

Never heard of one. Sounds like the big brother of the .410 Snake Charmer and cousin of the Survival Rifle.

H&R/Marlin/Remington lists a Handi-rifle and a matte nickel, Tamer 20 or .410 with a synthetic thumbhole stock. They make a laminated 12 or 20 Ultra Slug Hunter too.
Just isn't called a Caretaker any more. They're calling 'em "survival shotguns". Runs a tick under $200, but may have been discontinued.

H&R

I can find info on the Snake Charmer and other H&R Handi-Rifles and what not, but I just don't find anything on this Caretaker . I figured somebody on the High Road knows or has the expertise on computers to track it down ?

Is this what you are talking about?

If so, looks VERY cool. I've been in the market for a Pardner 20 gauge single shot for some time. I've got a 12 gauge version that I have cut down to 18.5"... I'm pretty sure you can't get a smaller or lighter 12 gauge that doesn't need paperwork. But, as you can imagine it HURTS to shoot. I'd imagine a 20 gauge in the same format would have less recoil and still be plenty powerful.

H&R

Yes, that's mostly what it looks like. Instead of any shell holders molded into the gun like that, picture a smooth stock shaped just like that. Now on the butt there is a knob of sorts that you turn a bunch of times and the stock opens from the rear with about enough room for 7 or so shells, or whatever you would want to stash in there. It's pretty cool as a survival gun for game or predators. Has anyone else found this particular model ?
