Folks,

Post your Henry photos here with pride. Please keep photos at a reasonable size. (like, around 400 pixels or smaller on the long side)

There are alot of nicely engraved models out there that have caught everyone's attention and show a great deal of pride.

These are wonderful rifles and fun to shoot.

These are photos of Bounty Bills engraved 1860 Henry. He couldn't figure out how to do it so I'm posting them for him.

Those look REAL fine...

How do you keep your brass from getting tarnished so fast? Is there a top level treatment, or, do you just wipe it down with oil ever so often?

I am REALLY thinking about getting my Henry engraved...

A good thing to use on your brass is SemiChrome Polish  (motorcycle shops carry it) I will take off all the tarnish and shine it up (it has jewelers rouge in it so will also take out small scratches.) works far better than brasso or flitz.

It is also great to do final polish on poly-ivory or even real ivory grips. I had my grips fitted but they were still rough and dull. I sat and watched tv and polished them til they now just glow, and are smooth as glass. (but as with ivory or good poly-ivory, they are not slippery when sweating and shooting...)

I don't have a Henry, but I do have a YELLOW BOY.  I may have to start saving a little money for a Henry now.  I love those engrave receivers...

Thanks for sharing.

Seeing as how the tag line of this forum says "Improved Henry" rifles are also allowed, here's a pic of me shootin' my main CAS rifle - Uberti Model 1866 in .45 Colt.  I don't keep the brass shined up, though - don't want her glinting and flashing in the sun, giving my position away to the hostiles ....

Gee, Col. Riddles ... thanks for ruining it for the REST of us!!! Roll Eyes Wink  Seriously, you have GREAT reason to be proud of your rifle as does your friend. 

Mine's more like RJ - an improved Henry that was shined last year.  I hadn't shined it in years - like RJ said, I didn't want to attract the hostiles - but when I took off the wonderful  Eye-tralian red stain and polyu. coating, it looked so purdy I had to shine it.

I'm not clever enough to post a picture.     YET!

I prefer mine nice a Un-polished, 'cause if I'm waiting for someone/thing in the Underbrush or in a Tree or on top of a Hill, I don't wish to give away where I'm @ 'cause of it reflecting in the sun-light, nor do I like being Blinded myself by its reflecting capabilities while lining up my sights on my intended target.
Besides, I've Bled on her a time or 2 & it now has the Bronseish patina to her now.

Excuse the effort at photographic composition, been reading Packing Iron again. Leave the brass alone, else you won't get that pleasing mellow patina that is seen on all old Henry's. The stock appears a little more red than it actually is. Took that Italian red paint job off and used dark walnut stain. Looks much better now, if I just had the ability to grind down those Import and Italian stamps I'd be all set.

As a Propmaker, many a import proof mark & < Black Powder Only > script have fallen to my file.
Keep the file flat and work past the script to blend ,watch your edges.
Use 250 thru 600 wet dry paper to work out the final surface.

Reb Tyree: The little open top pistol is what collectors now refer to as a turned rd. barrel 61 Navy. Well I believe most shot .38 rimfire, this came from the factory in .38 LC. As you probably know these were made from 1874-75 with only about 2000 or so made per McDowell's book on conversions. I shoot it in NCOWS as pocket pistol occasionally after recv'ing permission as the barrel is 4 1/2 inch. But these originals were intended as "pocket" pistols. It is a nice little 5 shot shooter.

Major 231: Thanks for the information. I take it that the stampings are not so deep that it leaves a "divot" in the metal if you are careful. Just need the courage to take that first stroke I guess. I should have take metal shop in high school instead of that advanced biology course!

Major 231: I think that over time you have forgotten the correct course name, I believe it was Human Anatomy and Physiology. At any rate far more interesting than general biology - advanced or not!

I have never polished the receiver of my Henry and don't plan on it. I shoot nothing but BP in it.
