Henry Single Shot Rifle

Looks like Henry is filling the vacuum created when that "Other Manufacturer" quit making break open single shot rifles. Henry's offering is a really nice looking rifle in both steel and what looks like brass covered steel frame offerings. And in .223, 243, .308, .44 Magnum, and .45-70; and in brass .44 Magnum and .45-70. If you're interested in getting a break open single shot, then these might fit the bill. Worth a look, anyway!

    Wonder if there is enough meat in the chamber area to re-chamber a 44 mag to 444 marlin? I have a real hankering for a 444 single shot.

    A little steep on price but a lot better looking than an NEF

    Most likely it would; have to see one 'in person' as it were to make that determination. Length of the breech end of the barrel would determine that bit. .444 Marlin is only an inch longer than the .44 magnum, so there probably is enough 'meat' to do that. And they operate at similar pressures.

    I've got a couple of lever action 45-70's and I've always been against putting a scope on a levergun but I would rock one of those in 45-70. The price is pretty reasonable too.

    I like it
    For some reason I have been interested in one chambered in 45-70 since I shot the old Springfield trap door

    I have the NEF in 45-70 and like it a lot, bought a 444marlin barrel for it but have not tried it yet.
     I do like the looks of the Henry.
