The wood on the Henry Arms is outstanding. My question is this natural or an applied finish ? I had read somewhere it was applied if so I would like to know how they did it.

HRA uses fancy select American black walnut.... on every one , Oil finished....



The Chaparral 73's Charter Arms imported in 07 or so had a faux finished mystery wood....
Which was awful ....  Roll Eyes

would you rather have a henry trapper model over the 24.25" barrel.

I'll pack the weight,.....I like more rounds at the ready,....

13 rounds in the tube on these 17.5" barreled guns using .45 C. Special brass and a set screw in the lifter.
More historically correct with a 200gr .45 bullet doing 1200fps  than a 45 Colt by a long shot :-)  And best of all they run like goose grease on fire when required.






Some how seems to be a decent rifle/ammo combo to me Smiley

Fingers & Yahoody, those a really sharp looking Henry rifles there.  Really to pretty to shoot.
Mine is just a Plain Jane.  Maybe someday.

OK Gabe - looks like I gotta put some rds downrange with my Henry this year, starting with the 'Chilako Trials' event at your club.

Please tell me that we're not going to be shooting them at wash tub sized targets at 10m .....

"Lawyer-izing" by Uberti? Rubber bullets would be even better .... ;>)

In my opinion there's nothing Like a Henry to show off fine engraving.

Sorry I can't polish my 1860 because it is the iron frame model. Converted to .45 CA Special ( .45 short) it is a hard hitter and super fun to shoot. Fully loaded 17 rounds is that an ancient assault rifle?

Loaded as it was originally intended.  Mine is as well.   Hell of a lot more historically accurate than a Henry n 44-40 or .45 Colt.  Good on ya.

My wife bought this Henry from Henry Repeating Arms, for one of my Christmas presents.  It's a quality rifle.  Wood to metal is excellent!

Thanks, This buffalo coat is the warmest coat I've ever owned.  No matter how cold and windy it is, it never fails to keep me warm!
