    Henry Rifle New Side Loaders

    Henry Rifles are coming out with a new series of lever actions with side and tube loading, looks really interesting. I like the Henry rifle company and would be tempted buy one if I get a chance.

    Ran a quick search to see if there were any posts on the new Henry side loaders - did not see any.

    Hope they sell a lot of them. More power to the Henry rifle company!

    .30 .30 and .38 .55 to start.

    Looks like they reinvented the Marlin 336.

    Henry is a awesome company. American made, and they totally support the Second Amendment.

    While I had no problem with the normal tube fed Henry's, they are still kicking butt in the market and now appealing to the hardcore side loaders. Good for them. They make simply OUTSTANDING products. I'm not sure...it'd be a toss up if there are more Henry's in the house or Pony's. Might be time to count them up. Interesting with the .38-55 too...

    You can't beat Henry for quality, or their customer service. Several years ago, I bought one of their lever .22s. The screw holes in the barrel band were stripped, so I called them for a replacement. The nice lady that answered the phone said everyone was at lunch, but would get back to me shortly. I figured, "yeah,right". 20 minutes later, I get a call from Mr. Imperato, the owner. He said he'd send me a new barrel band, and there was no need to return the old one. Two days later, it's in my mailbox. I'm a fan for life.

    I've no experience with the Henry's but have heard many good things about them. They're not perfect though...a friend bought one in .44 Manum and when he tried to fire it all he got was a click when the hammer dropped. Problem...no firing pin. How did the rifle get through inspection and proof firing without a firing pin?

    Stuff happens. I read many years ago in one of the gun magazines that a writer had received a rifle, complete with test target with a nice group in it. Trouble is, when he inspected the rifle he found that the barrel had no chamber in it.

    I personally know of a friend who bought a brand new Weatherby rifle, also with a test target. When he fired his first shot with it he couldn't open the bolt. When he got it home and finally beat the bolt open, he found a large gouge in the side of the chamber that the brass had expanded into, thus locking it up. He sent it back to Weatherby for a new barrel, but they never explained how they were able to shoot a three shot group with its original barrel.

    As far as the new Henrys go, I like the fact that they have kept the original tube loading feature as well. It allows a shooter to unload the gun without having to run the rounds through the action.

    I want a blue steel Henry rifle side loader in 44 with a 16 or 18 inch Barrel.!



    It's great that they listened to their customers and gave them a product that they wanted! $ Ka ching! $

    I wish another American Company- that we all know- would do that!

    +1! I have a Rossi 92 that I kept the "saftey" on- as I did not like levering the rds out of it when it was loaded in the house- taking the rounds out via the magazine tube on a Henry seems like a good feature.

    Now all they gotta do is drop all that shiny brass and I may just buy one.

    They make a good, although heavy, .22LR. The goldenboy is a very fine gun.
    I have read good things about their reproduction Henry.

    Their larger bore guns that I have fired have all been serviceable, though I would not describe them as high quality. They are good guns, but the actions in my experience tend to be stiff and heavy.

    Again good guns, but except for the .22 goldenboy I have always felt I could just save my pennies a little longer and buy an OLD winchester.
