    Does Anyone Own a 41 Magnum Henry?

    I have been eyeing Henry rifles over the past several weeks, and have to convince myself to buy one.

    One of the main reasons I DON'T like the rifle is that it is a Muzzle End Loading rifle, and I'm slow to change ... or so I've been told.


    However, I the ONLY 22 Rifles I own are Marlin Tube Fed ... and they load from the Muzzle end ... so I think I'll manage.

    Now on to the 'Fun' part .....

    I'm seriously considering a 41 Magnum Henry for next years Deer season. Up until now I have always hunted with either a 10mm pistol or 45/70 rifle.

    My Father has ALWAYS been a huge fan of the 41 Magnum and has never abandoned it ... even in it's 'Dull' years. I remember him bringing home a brand new S&W Model 57 when I was a kid, and he still shoots it today.

    So ... in short ... are there any inherent issues I should know about if I delve into a Henry lever gun in 41 Magnum? Will they handle the 'Full House' loads by Buffalo Bore?

    Thanks

    I have one, It's great.

    The original Henry and father of all levers fed from the end of the tube. So the change was actually the loading gate.

    It's strong, accurate, dependable, etc. etc. It will handle those "hot" loads, but you don't need them. It's plenty capable with standard production loads.

    I bought one when they first came out with the .41, because I couldn't afford a Marlin .41 magnum. What I really wanted was a short carbine with a larger loop, but was told by Henry "There are no plans in the works to make a .41 magnum carbine." Well, la, tee, da! About 6 months after I buy the ,41 magnum rifle, they announce a carbine is coming. I love the Henry, it's a great rifle! However, I wish they had polished the steel more before bluing, AND I WISH IT WAS A CARBINE!

    I think my Henry will handle any full house Buffalo Bore load out there, but I handload mine. I load hot "rifle loads" for the Henry and "handgun loads" for my Blackhawk. Not that the Blackhawk won't take the rifle loads, it will, but my hands don't like them much these days. My companion handgun for my Marlin 44 magnum, is a .44 special. I'm past having to have a fire breathing handgun, since I have the magnum rifles. You will be happy with the Henry.

    I also got the Henry 41 when it came out. I love mine and the tube load is nice when your fingers are cold. I am currently shooting a 230 gr swc coated from Missouri Bullet at around 1600 fps in mine. I have no need for heavier loads. I am away from home and that bullet may be 225 gr.

    I too have a Henry BBS in the 41mag. I love it!!! The only drawback is finding ammo and when you do it's almost always very pricey. Being a reloader, the 41mag. ammo is no problem. My Ruger SBHH is very accurate with the 210g. Deep Curl bullets (1300fps.), while the 41 Mag BBS likes the reloaded Hornady 190gr FTX (1710 fps). The factory FTX ammo didn't group that well in either of the fore mentioned firearms. I think you'll find the "41" to be a fun and effective 100yd Deer/Black Bear caliber.

    Keep us posted.

    Love my carbine... Buddy's std length shoots a tad better. They both like 210 XTP and Nosler JHP.

    I bought 2 when they came out. I had talked with Anthony Imperato (President and owner of Henry) in Tulsa at the Wanamaker GS a couple of years before they produced them. I was carrying a Marlin 41Mag I had just paid $1200 for and I asked him if he thought Henry would ever produce a rifle in .41 Mag? He said at the time they had no plans as he felt there wasn't much interest in the 41 Mag.

    I told him I had to disagree and that lots of folks were looking for a lever gun in 41. He told me to send him an email when I got home and to have anyone else I knew who was interested in seeing the 41 produced to do the same. So I did, and I had a bunch of guys at our gun club and hunting club do the same.

    Two years later I received an email from Anthony telling me they were going to produce the 41 and he asked if I would like one drop shipped to my FFL when they started production and of course I said yes!

    I got the 1st one and loved it so I asked him to send another to my FFL. I have shot one quite a bit and have taken a couple deer with it and a small hog. The other is still new in the box. I've been a Marlin collector since I bought my 1st 39A at the age of 14 and nothing will ever replace them but I also love the Henry's I own.
