    Has any one checked out the Chiappi line of lever actions? I looked these over at the NRA show and hey looked fantastic. They also have some beautiful Sharps reproductions.
    I believe their website is Chiappi Firearms of Dayton.

    I hope they make it with a tapered barrel. I was looking at a 44 mag Big Boy and that big non tapered barrel just doesn't look right to me. That and if they go with no loading gate again makes me doubt I would be interested. However I already have an 1895 non remlin which is a great gun so I guess I don't need 2 45/70's anyhow..

    I'd be interested in one. Made in the USA and I love my Henry 22. It's cheap and not very pretty but very accurate and fun to shoot.

    By now you should have realized that it's not about need.

    We have six .45-70's and four of them are Marlins. I'd add another in a heartbeat. And, I almost did a few days ago. It's just that I got a good deal on a .22-250, and Marla didn't want to spring for yet another rifle after the varmint rifle considering the four firearms I got at a gun show last weekend. They had another rifle at the shop that I was drooling over, a Handi-Rifle in .500 S & W magnum. One of these days I've gotta get me one of those.

    YOU TAKE THAT BACK RIGHT NOW!!!

    The Henry has potential that's for sure..on a side thought, has anybody fluted an octogon barrel?

    Yes it isn't about need, I agree, but when you are surrounded by needs, such as, the boat needs a bigger motor, and moma needs a new pair of shoes, I have to carefully weigh it all out. :P While I admit I sometimes get slightly envious when looking at peoples outstanding collections of guns I just have to be grateful for the few I do have and just shoot them more..

    Re: Henry 45-70

    Hi everyone,

    I would hope that " Henry " did a little homework & decided to build a better mouse trap, or in this case, a " Better Rifle "!

    I already own a " Marlin & H&R 45/70 Rifle ", & handload for both ..

    Why would " I " buy another .. , " IF " they can't build (Re-engineer from the ground up ) a new " Rifle ", & somewhat different from whats already on the market .. ?

    IMHO
    1. Stronger Action: A " Real Big Bore Action " ; For those of us that like " Hotter Reloads ", than factory loaded ammo!
    2. Octagon Barrel : Sounds like a nice touch !
    3. Factory Option(s) : Different Sight options ; No need to go aftermarket.

    Just my two cents !

    PAPI

    I'd think they'd be similar to the 30-30's though there is a rumor out there that it will be a pistol grip stock. Pretty much all the brass Henry's have the octagon barrel I think. In the 30-30 the steel/black Henry has ghost ring sites, the brass one has buckthorn's. I'd be surprised if it had a loading gate though.
