Hey Lonesome

Thanks so much for the photos of the case hardened iron frames. I can't see much of the case hardening, but I will take your word for it. At least I know now that my Uberti case hardened 'iron frame' is kind of authentic.

DJ, only the Henry sn.2 has a case hardened iron frame. It's not my word, but the word of the late Les Quick.
The two other Henrys are for comparison only.

Excellent and interesting pictures... However, have any of you noted how carelessly their firearms muzzles are pointed?

In the third photo, you see a guy who's all decked out in studio props for the photo.  New hat, shotgun chaps, new holster and a cartridge belt that looks like it's full of large caliber rifle ammunition set in wide cartridge loops.  Great photo with a lot of cool stuff.  It also looks like the glass plate negative may have been reversed when the photo was printed.

Do you know if these are Civil War time photos or post war?  Those are great.  Our 1st Sgt of our reenactment group has a Henry and also plays the banjo.

Sorry Sean, i don't know.They are both from the new book: Volcanic Firearms.
The 1st Sgt.( Cavalry ?) looks very young to me.

I would think the son of the 1st Sgt. in a child's uniform.  Seen photos of Officers with their son dressed like them in a uniform.  A 1st. Sgt. could get away with that probably.  Or maybe a photo studio with props?

51st. Illinois Infantry at Lookout Mountain,1864



I think, quite certain, the left guy( sitting ), is holding a Henry Rifle.

In a letter to the President of the New Haven Arms Company, John H. Ekstand, Ordnance Sergeant for the 51st Illinois Infantry writes that he would like to get more Henry Rifles and that the Henry Repeating rifle is a “hobby” of his.  This letter is dated November 2, 1863. “I take the liberty to inquire about your Rifle, as I have been an owner of one of them a long time, and through my agency twelve of them have been bought in the regiment and many more would have been bought had I been able to get them in any place, and if I do get any the price is very much increased.  In the 51st Illinois it is many that will buy them, and the brigade and division both requested me to write to you for information and a price list and the different kinds made, and how many we can get, or when, and express charges from the factory to Stevenson, Alabama, and if we cannot get some good globe sights or if any telescope sights are made, and their cost.  I have took pains to command, and also to bring them through.  We have now four months pay due us and the boys will have the money ready to send by express to you when we can know how many we can get.  We used your rifle in the Battle of Chickamauga with good effect, and it is undoubtedly the best gun in the service, far superior to the Spencer rifle or any other rifle, both here and in Europe, as I have served a long time in both armies; but better sights ought to be made for so good a rifle.  I received ten rifles from Bowen in Chicago, but could not get any more just now.  Cannot any heavier guns be made to order, or different calibre?  Excuse my many enquiries.  Your rifle is my “hobby” so the boys say, and I like to be able to give them all the information possible, and get as many Henry’s rifles in the Army of the Cumberland, so we could drive the Rebs from Chattanooga, so we could get something to eat.
