    I say I wish they would release it already! I'm in the market to buy a lever 45-70, but have been holding off buying one until the Henry came out.
    They say it will be available in March or April.

    Shooting from bags and rests is a good indication of how well your rifle will shoot.... But standing, kneeling and shooting off-hand will tell you how well YOU shoot.
    Get off the bench and get in the game!

    I noticed they mentioned it will handle any of the 45-70 loads. I wonder if that includes the Ruger #1 levels. Now THAT would be an accomplishment. Looks like a great looking rifle. I have read some of the folks do not like the magazine design, and I get why. I think their design would be great if it were a matter of just pulling the spring up and dropping the rounds in, as opposed to current design of pulling the spring tube out to load it. The previous mentioned design does not have parts that can be lost.
    While all the oil may be in Texas, ALL the dipstics are in "DC, and Sacramento"

    It also lists for about $200 more than I paid for my brand new Marlin 1895, which looks and shoots just fine.

    The ad says it's a straight grip! It shows a pistol grip If it was a side loader it would be decent!

    that is the MSRP. I am betting actual street price after the initial rush to have one is 550-600-ish.

    Not a fan of the magazine design, but it does look nice.

    .

    I can't warm up to that magazine design. The receiver port on other lever guns is much faster to reload and far less awkward. I can reload my Marlins without taking the gun down from my shoulder. Let's see you do that with that Henry. Otherwise, it's a very nice looking firearm.
