    Here's a pic of my 2 CCH models, 45-70 on the left and 45 Colt on the right. If you want more/closer pics, let me know.

    Guess I've been one of the fortunate ones. I've bought 3 Remlins since 2015. A 336SS 30-30, an 1895CB 45-70, and just last year one of the new 444's. Fit and finish on mine are pretty good, and they function good. The laser cut checkering does leave a little to be desired on my 30-30 with no sharpness to the checkering. The checkering on the 444 is pretty good though. The 444 is very accurate. The 30-30 isn't as accurate as I'd like but it'll do.

    Remember a long time ago when stores first started selling these crappy tomatoes that are grown year round in greenhouses? That is what a Remlin is. So, give it 30 years or so, we will all be dead and John Q. Gunner will hardly know what is missing. I buy all guns at shows. Get a nice firearm and get it on the bench for an overhaul.

    Ether do the checkering right or don’t do it at all. And, do a better sanding job and at least apply enough coats and sand between coats to fill grain on the stock.
    Yes--The stocks have this dry look----like there is no finish on it. Also, I don't like that flat black metal look -----it is not a blue like the old ones----some kind of black oxide. Even the older satin blue was way more smooth and nice.

    Wow! Those rifles are beautiful! I know where my next rifle will be purchased from!

    Oh, I just noticed something. I don’t see a safety button on the receiver. Does the safety work when the trigger half cocked?

    Henry uses a hammer “transfer bar” safety. There is no crossbolt or the like. You have half-cock, and the transfer bar is an automatic thing. Unless you actually pull the trigger, there is no way the hammer will contact the firing pin. Even if you smash it forward with a sledgehammer.

    i own 2 Henrys, and if they made a .30-30 with a barrel shorter than 18.5”, I would have bought another Henry instead of the new 336BL I just bought. Henry makes BY FAR the nicest leverguns available new today. They only do a .30-30 with a small loop, and 20” barrel. On the positive side, my new 336 is meant to be a “working” gun, so I don’t mind that it isn’t super pretty. I’d feel guilty about using a Henry the way I plan to use this 336.

    I should add, I traded a carbine that I had $415 in straight across for the brand new 336. A brand new Henry .30-30 is at $925 MSRP. That isn’t a trade that was likely to happen. I have high hopes for this 336...

    It's hard to let go. That's why finding a nice older one is so sweet.

    Correct, except for one thing: There is no half-cock on the Henry. It's either cocked, or it's not. And the transfer bar ensures that it will only fire when the trigger is pulled, regardless of what happens to the hammer.

    I could have sworn it has 1/2 cock too, but I could be going off half cocked myself...
