    I was going to take my ruger #3 out this season but that hard buttplate is just brutal. I think the single shot henry with the recoil pad would make it much more tolerable. And adding a slip on recoil pad would be awesome. But I don't think the Henrys will shoot ruger loads.

    Back in March 2015, I read a thread -- see below -- 'bout these Rolling Blocks from Tippmann. Price was $900.00 and supposedly they were in production. Since then I have not seen anything on the various shooting sites about these rifles.

    There is an article about them in some magazine I saw at the supermarket about a month ago. I also sent them an email about two weeks ago to ask them if they could make the forend longer and they replied back that yes they could work with me on that. Try asking your LGS, maybe tippmann armory supplies to them.

    I have not handled a Henry SS yet, they look classic compared to H&R or NEF models. I wonder if the trigger guard/ trigger group is
    all metal. Will have to handle one before I can judge them. At the price they want for them, they better be something special. At that
    price there is a lot of used levers and BAs, that I would rather have than a break down rifle.

    See Indiana made Rolling Block
    I handled the Tippmann roller. It is not as nice as Ubertia's version but it is made just down the road in Ft Wayne In.

    Hopefully $315 is a representative retail price for the blued version.

    I did a little investigating....contacted Henry Tech: The receiver is a machined steel investment casting, and the firearm is rated at 62,000 psi .....so far so good. I would have liked to get the 44 Mag version, and rechamber to my Safari Grade 444.................BUT!!!!! The 44 Mag barrel is a 1-38 twist!!!! This I do not understand. Every 44 cal firearm I have ever owned has had a 1-20 twist, except one 444 Marlin with a 1-38. The 1-38 Marlin shot excellent groups, but 350 grains was it! Yes, the 1-38 would shoot bullet weights up to 350 or so, but that twist totally negates the use of heavier 44 cal bullets (I shoot 410 and 455 in my SG 444 Marlin lever gun). I still like the gun, and it is strong, but the twist is not suited for my original intention. I am still interested....maybe just keep it 44 Mag, or do the SG modification and settle for lighter weight bullets. Need to see if I can get my paws on one and check it out. If the quality level is "Henry" quality, it would make for a nice light woods rifle.

    My email to Henry only uncovered that the 45-70 single shot could handle Corbon and buffalo bore loads. Which is surely good enough for me in that light of a rifle.

    Thank SAAMI for the 43 cal rifle bore spec, 1:38", not the same spec as the pistol.
