He can also fit it for and provide a ram rod for extra money, but I was going to buy a collapsible ram rod that you wear on your belt.

If I were to do it again I think I would have Slufoot do mine. It really only saves you about $25 going with his style though. $40 for the plug, $80 for the install and $20ish for return shipping. So you're looking at $140 for Slufoot versus $165 for SMI.

The only advantage I would say the SMI conversion has is the breech plug is shorter so you get more use of your barrel length. Probly not enough to make a difference though...

Slu-foot is a member of Dougs and his work is outstanding and much faster turn around time than SMI and less hassel.

I purchased the stainless H&R off here a month or so back. I sold the factory laminate thumbhole stock and forend because it was right handed and Im a lefty. Ordered a Boyde Thumbhole Laminate left hand camobutt stock and a laminate camo forend from H&R for an Ultra slug Hunter. Next stop is sending the barrel and forend to slufoot for the breech plug and ramrod install.

True that. But I prefer their short plug over the long Savage plug.
