    Henry single shots?

    The more I look at these the more I like them,thinking about getting one in 45-70

    Been reading up on them and can't find anything negative about them,haven't checked one out in person yet.

    If anyone here has one let me know how you like it.

    Thanks....

    One or two members have them and posted them here before. I think it would be cool to get one of the brass models in 45 Colt or 44 magnum.

    Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape.

    Yup , thats what my wife got for xmas the brass 44 mag.
    She likes it, and i shot it and sighted it in.
    The one hiccup, was didn't order the scope mount with it.
    And last fall nobody made one for it except henry. I had a gun Smith modify one to work so my wife could use it for deer season, if she wanted to carry it one day.

    The only drawback I see with them is the trigger. Takes lots of force to
    get the hammer back and then a 6-8 lb. creep, then pull to fire. That can
    be fixed though.

    35remshooter,

    Just remember, F=MA. The weapon weights in a 6.8 pounds in steel and 7.01 pounds in brass. Unless you have pulled the trigger on a 7# 45-70 and know you are OK with the rearward Force created by the Mass of the bullet* the Acceleration of the bullet, you may be a much happier owner if you think 44 mag.

    However, if your plan is to carry all day and possibly shoot once in a game situation the recoil may not be an issue.

    Not a bad option for the price.

    I handled one at the LGS. A 308 model.
    Very compact and light weight for a 22 inch barreled rifle.
    Make a great walking around rifle in your favorite caliber.
    Maybe the .223 NATO.

    Have not had the opportunity to handle one, but from the pictures the Henry Single-Shot --except for the so called hammer -- looks good. And the price is not exorbitant. As for the hammer, I just wish it sported a more traditional hammer instead of what looks like a soda pop can flip top.

    Hoping to see a .30 WCF soon.
    In real life may you be the bad ass you claim to be on social media....

    I just got one about a month ago, in .30-30, but I haven't shot it yet. I'm waiting for the range to dry up enough that waders aren't needed. The rifle is quite nice, and a whole lot more refined than a Handi-Rifle. It's a beautiful rifle. I had to order mine for Bud's, and it came in short order at a decent price. I love single shots rifles for hunting.
