My local Dicks Sporting Goods has the Handi Rifle 45-70 on sale for $229.  This gun is typically $269-$279.  Great 'primitive' firearm to extend your hunting seasons.  No clue if this is a national sale or not.

Here it is at Academy: http://www.academy.com/shop/pdp/harrington-richardson-174-handi-...

How is this considered "primitive"?

rated:
Yes, "primitive" hunting is muzzleloaders and bows, just because it is a single shot it is still a "modern" rifle.

rated:
It is considered 'primitive' because it's a pre 1892 (or some year like that) replica.  In some states, LA and MS specifically, this is allowed during the primitive rifle seasons.  Maybe that's the only two states that allow that, not sure.  The round is a black powder round with less velocity that your modern day rifles.  Not here to argue whether it's primitive or not though, some states allow it, so have at it if they do.

  1899 actually, but you're correct.
