    From the time I first saw case hardening, it has been one my preferred receiver finishes on levers and single shots. This finish may improve the lines of the Henry action.

    From my experience in getting a 41 BB steel from Buds for $623 Here is the reality. The 410's were promised back at beginning of year and 327 fed mad promised in spring. the 410's are just now beginning to show up and it will probably be another handful of months till you can get one for street price, my guess about $650 since MSRP is $850, I am guessing it will be around Halloween or Christmas till a 327 actually shows up at our LGS.


    from 12-4-16
    Thank you for purchasing a Henry, for your kind words, suggestion and continued interest in Henry. We certainly appreciate it. We will have Henry Big Boys in both the hardened brass and steel, in both rifle and carbine, in 327 by Spring 2017. Sign up for our 2017 catalog and opt in for our occasional emails and we will keep you posted.

    Sincerely,
    Anthony Imperato

    2016 1895LE,

    As a person that has touched off a 180 gr plus 30-06 round in a 7# rifle can offer some insights. Very nice to carry. Easy to shoulder and get on target quickly. One added benefit, if you have any sinus congestion, you won't after about two shots.

    Henry already has the Long Ranger, 7#, straight stock, detach mag, with rubber recoil pad in .308 Win. With modern powders and the shorter barrel, I would say you could get very close to the ballistics of the -06 in the same barrel length.

    The Browning BLR in 30-06 , 270 win and others have been out for decades in both straight stock and pistol grip. Extremely well built guns, many with fit and finish comparable to a Weatherby Mark V deluxe

    Goldtrigger,

    Correct, just look at Gun Broker from time to time and you will see them up for sale. Many original owners families are thinning the collection these days. I first shot them back in the early to mid 70's. Strong indeed. No issues with full loads in the Browning Lever Rifle.

    Wow the options out there now are better than I thought! 24 pages of BLR stuff

I would much rather have one of them then any of the tribute editions that Tenry has so many of. But I'm just a fat old guy what do I know
    I agree. I had looked at Henry Rifles 4 or 5 years ago and initially I thought they made a lot of small caliber rifles and Novelty rifles. I have no interest in any of that stuff. But since they upgraded their line of rifles to include the H010 Chambered in 45-70 in a blued Walnut stock rifle that I started taking them seriously. I don't use anything smaller than a 308 and use a 35 REM for Scouting. The main reason Is I primarily go out in the Game Lands and State Forest solo and there are LOTS of Black Bears. There are more Bears than I can ever remember seeing since I've been on the planet. Carrying a glorified toy gun doesn't cut it where I live. Henry has really impressed me lately and has some of the best offerings any Lever Gun Company could offer. If not for my ripe old age, I would have had a Henry rifle by now.

    I would guess that Henry should stick with popular Calibers rather than try to sell odd-ball calibers that may have limited ammunition availability and a smaller potential customer base.

    Well, that eliminates the worthless .45-70.


    Henry uses small batch production for the big stuff. They can build almost anything and the production run is still small enough that everything will sell.
    The .327s that I believe you're referring to, specifically... If Henry had shipped them when they said they would, they likely would have been sold out in less than two weeks.
    The .41 Mag rifles that everyone poo-pooed so enthusiastically when Henry announced them are now on their fourth (fifth?) production run.

    Ammunition availability for things that aren't ultra-main-stream?
    That's regional.
    Right now, I can buy, within six miles of my house: .32 WS, .358 Win, .30-40 Krag, .303 Brit, 7x57mm Mauser, 7.35x51mm, 7.5x55mm, .32-40, .32-20, .327 Federal (and the smaller .32s), .338 Lapua, .450 Nitro, .470 Nitro, .505 Gibbs, .50 BMG, 8x50mm Lebel, .375 Win, .375 Ruger (and H&H), and all manner of other cartridges that people have difficulty locating in other parts of the country.

    But... I can't get .480 Ruger, 8x57mm, .220 Swift, .22 Hornet, or 6.8 SPC here; nor can I buy any .475" bullets, even though there is .500 S&W ammo, brass, and bullets everywhere.


    More often than not, ammunition availability is just a matter of location and perspective...

    Not at all. the 45-70 is a popular caliber, ammo can be obtained from a variety of mfg and many different variations. Even Walmart carries it.

    Good luck getting 450 Marlin ammunition. Last I looked, Hornady is making it but not everyone likes flex tips. The 450 Marlin is a perfect example of what I Posted. It was another me-too product that was not needed. I believe the cartridge design is superior and a better choice for many hunters, but without ammunition being available, the 450 Marlin is a expensive door stop.

    Clarification appears to be necessary.

    The winky smiley () is intended to express sarcasm.

    Though I am not a fan of .45-70 (I think .444 Marlin is superior), I acknowledge and respect .45-70's capabilities. (Though limited. ) And it is definitely in the realm of 'main-stream' at this point in time. .45-70 is probably more popular and wide-spread now, than at any other point in history.


    As for .450 Marlin...
    Absolutely no use for it, myself.
    From my point of view, it is the proverbial 'answer in search of a question'.

    But if some one else wants to run it. Go for it. Variety is the spice of life, and if your spice includes .450 Marlin, I'm all for it.
