    Agreed. they work well no doubt. but HEAVY! ok if im woods walking and lets say I want to carry a rifle in 44 mag. my Rossi 92 ( very accurate too) or Henry. a friend has a Henry. so when we walk together ive carried his rifle he carried mine. after awhile. I want my 92 back. that said I do like the Henry long range in .223 hmmmmm.

    I'm sure Henry will have success with that rifle. They start with good deer bustin calibers. But, for over a thousand dollars I would not pay for a hunting rifle. I could buy a JM 30/30, 35 Rem. or a Savage 99 300 Savage or 30/30 for less and have change to buy a Ruger single action. No thanks.

    When the blued steel edition comes out, it will be $600 and change from your LGS. Mark it down.

    Agree.

    Maybe even $597 at Wal-Mart.

    They carry the Henry 22's there.

    I don't understand the fascination with the side loading gate. If I was fighting Indians with the covered wagons in a circle, maybe. You can reload a bit faster, as well as reload after every shot, if need be. But for hunting or plinking I can't see that it makes much difference. The tube loader is better/safer to unload the gun... Nobody seems to mind the tube loading on .22's. So, what's the big deal? I also can't see a negative to having BOTH options.

    What gives? Or is it a case of sour grapes?

    I really like the loading gate but wish they'd drop the tube. Or offer it with/without or both. Buyers choice. But nice to see they are finally offering a gate. Yeah Henry!!!

    I guess the one word answer would be "Tradition".
