With Henry now starting to offer loading gates on some of their rifles, their market share of the lever business is only going to get larger. CP.

The following was in an email from Henry this AM:

“In the past, we have always taken inspiration from the original 1860s-era Henry rifle by opting to design our firearms with a removable tube magazine. We’re no sticks in the mud though, and when loyal Henry customers ask, loyal Henry customers receive. Our Side Gate Lever Action offers up the best of both worlds with our standard removable tube magazine for safe and easy unloading and a side loading gate to keep the magazine topped off.”

Yep. And in a couple of cartridge offerings not often found. Good for Henry to listen to they're customers. Not good for Marlin sales. And Marlin does't listen and learn.

the side loading gate is what kept me from buying a henry. I also think having the tube load AND loading gate option is the shiznizzle.

Checked out their website and see they offer it in.38-55. That would be cool! Their Long Ranger in 6.5 CM is interesting also.

Neat gun, Henry seems to be going places. Never really paid attention to the 38/55 but that rifle is moose worthy with the Buffalo Bore 255 gr load. Bet it is a lot nicer to shoot compared to a 444 or 45/70.

Idaho Shooter, if you're still looking for a proper base/ring set-up for a henry, the Henry Pride store has the Talley integeral base/rings deal. Put one on my Henry.357. Looks good, pretty low and only $49! Solid mount.

Every time I check out Henry I'm disappointed. Plastic sights, tube load, paint-on and cheesy plated finishes, pot metal, lousy wood to metal fit, and one store I frequent even received one missing the lever.

If people buy them and like them, great. I'll be staying away.

You were probably looking at the rimfires. I can't say for sure, as I don't own one. But, I own two Henry centerfires,.357 and .45 Colt, and they're nothing like you describe.

We just won a 22 mag at the local NRA banquet, it also is nothing like he describes. Quality fit and finish, no plastic.

I have no problem with the tube loading.
My brass BB .45 is a good shooter. Use it for Cowboy Action. Quality is outstanding
I like my BL-92 .44mag more. Nothing beats Browning for wood. Rifle is lighter and faster, but that loading gate gets to be a PITA on a long day.

I would love to see Henry or Marlin or ANYBODY chamber a rifle in .460S&W, to be able to shoot .454 Casull and .45 Colt. Like a .357mag and .38Spc. Almost equal to a .45-70 and a good reduced load, too.
