    Part of the appeal with a Marlin 336 .35 Rem was the ability to hand load to exceed the factory ballistics intended to be safe in the old Remington auto loaders. I have a Henry and its a fine and fun shootin iron but, I don't think I would want to try hot rodding handloads for a rifle with a brass receiver. Maybe they will follow up with a steel receiver side loader.

    I'm OK with the tube, but really, it can't be that hard to do. A removable cap on the end that holds the spring, and there ya go. I'm guessing the chance of the cap and spring launching will keep them away from the idea, though.
    I ain't askin' nobody for nuthin', if I can't get it on my own.

    Great idea. This is a gamechanger. Time to get another Henry this time in 38-55!

    Words cannot express my excitement for this new rifle from Henry. Next AR, next 1911, and anything else just went out the window. Buying one in 38-55 ASAP!!!

    I think about $600 is about right. Henrys never go for MSRP, my Big Boy had an MSRP of $1045 and I paid around $800 shipped

    I also want to touch on the price of these rifles. Guys, you have to understand. It's hard to make a quality rifle anymore for under $1000 in something like a levergun. Look at what Remlins cost and look at the quality issues we have to deal with! I have no issues paying the piper for quality. These aren't easy to produce AR's.

    The video of the brass 38-55 shows Buffalo Bore loads being shot in it and they are not what I would call wimpy.

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?


    Both would be good. Tube for standing and Gate for prone.
