I bought a Henry it is a new x model in 357/.38. I was looking for one and could not find one anywhere.
I noticed that Henry at that time was closed because of the Pandemic. They had a notice that some of their people were working from home and contact was available via email.
I made contact, the reply was something like this. Henry wants you to have the rifle you want. What FFl do you want it sent to. I had already contacted the FFl that was a highly rated dealer on Henry's web site.
Henry contacted dealer and in about one week the rifle was at the dealer.
I have only had it to the range 2 times so far and have been a happy owner. I have used 357 and 38 specials.

Ha, 2 is more like it. As nice and as good looking as they are, they're not all that expensive, as you'd think .

Aha! I see what you mean and totally agree with you. The darker look is WAY better. Makes the rifle kind of pop. Good call by you and good job by Henry.

Cowboy guns are fun. If you don't already, you should shoot in some SASS matches. You'd have fun. But you do need gear - like you have the rifle and pistols but you need a shotgun. I have several 97's, one that was actually built in 1898. I shot that the first couple years but then switched to a chink replica with spin-in chokes so I could shoot cowboy trap meets.

If you look at the first pair, the Navy's, they have the Richards-Mason conversion to shoot cartridges. Technically for .38 Long Colt, I end up shooting .38 Spl cases with a short OAL, 104 gr bullet over 3.2 gr Trail Boss, for a really easy shooting round that won't tax the frames. They are a gas to shoot, and look really kool, but it took me a LONG time to get them right.

Beautiful rifle Shoot!
Henry makes a great gun. 3-4 years ago i bought two of their standard .22 lever guns, one for my son for Christmas and the other for his teacher, me.

The forearm and barrel band on one had a bit of a wiggle. I called them and told them about it. Without much more questions they sent me another forearm and barrel band which the rep said he would personally make sure fit better by trying it on a gun. I got the parts and a note from him hand written saying he had put them on a gun and the fit should be better for me. It was nice and tight. Great service. And the guns are really well made for the $275 a piece I paid for them.

That is great. Henry has been giving 1st class service for a very long time with many, many happy owners. I also like the part that you got one for your son and his teacher . . . excellent!

I got them off gunbroker. Bought the one for him at $299. In communicating with the seller to finalize things I told him who it was for. He said to me ‘what are you gonna do while he’s shooting it?’ I was like hmmm I don’t know. Then he said he’d give me two for $275 a piece and after thinking (for a whole second) I realized he was right and it was a good idea to get two so we could shoot same time and duel on the steel plates at the rimfire gallery.

Here’s a couple videos. They are fun guns and it was a wise decision to get two.


Of course I had to show him how to do it.

More than the stock being a light, blonder color (which the pic shows it darker than it really was), I didn't like the graining at all. And it was their regular stock set, not their "Fancy" stock set which was on the shown rifle off of their site. Tough buying when you're not able to actually choose your stock in person, which unless your buying locally, you can't really do from a GrabaGun, etc. etc.
