    Beg Henry for a loading gate.

    I emailed Henry asking for them to design a loading gate on their lever guns. They promptly emailed me back explaining their idea that this gate creates unloading the gun issues that they don't care for. I think Remington maybe saying adios leaving a void that Henry could fill. Emails talk fellas! Let Henry know they are missing the market.

    Getting a loading gate to perform its function correctly involves a lot more engineering effort and production time compared to up scaling basically a .22RF loading tube design.

    I, for one, do appreciate the elegance and artfulness of the loading gate design.

    Recoiling larger cartridges scare me slamming back and forth with just a pin in a sheet metal tube with a slot holding them in like a .22.

    The rossi 92 454 casull version has loading gates in both the receiver and mag tubes.
    The one I owned loaded smoothly either way.

    With all respect to all involved, why in the wide world of sports would H.R.A. who is selling more rifles than it can build and keeps bringing out new models that Marlin can only make false promises about, want to spend big bucks to purchase another levergun company?

    All Marlin levergun patents expired decades ago. Henry could tool up and start producing 336-alikes without spending a penny on intellectual property.

    This sounds like the best of both worlds.
