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.
