Got me a Steel Framed, CCH Henry from UBERTI USA when it was on their Blemished Gun list.  They claimed it had a cracked Stock.  I got it for $200 less than Dealer Price and the Stock wasn't cracked, the wood had delaminated and my Gunsmith fixed that and put on the prettiest finish I've ever seen.   Oh Yeah, it's in .44/40.

Well, you all can add me to the list.  I got my Uberti Iron Framed .44-40 Henry in 1990, and shot it for 13 years straight in CAS, using blackpowder loads....a LOT of rounds.  I put my trusty Henry in the safe in 2004, so I could give more play to my Improved Henry Carbine (Uberti), and to my original Spencer Carbine.

Well, I'm pulling my old trusty Henry back out of the safe, and after a little cosmetic work this winter, I will be using it, especially at the NCOWS National Shoot in June.........

Aldo Uberti, about 20 years ago. The gun sat in a warehouse and never sold, until I saw it. I had it antiqued nickeled. Just recently.
Action very smooth, shot it for the first time Sat, 01/21/06. Extremely accurate. I thought about selling it but it matches my colts, almost. see for yourself. I'll Keep it.

Col. Riddles,
Do you have Charles Galckman's address or phone number in Fairland. My mother-in-law has a Dairy Farm there and I just wondered if they might be neighbors? I also wanted to find out if he does revovlers? I have a first model Colt Richards 1860 conversion I want to have some early style engraving done on it.

Just sent you a PM with his address & phone #. Yes he does pistols & knives too. Ask him to send you some pics of the pair of Ruger stainless Vaqueros he just finished. He also makes custom knives & leather. I have two of his bullet loading strips & a Bowie knife & a boot knife & sheaths that he made.

Ottawa Creek Bill, Actually the Colts are early 3rd generations. You are correct about the Bulls-eye ejectors. Engraving done by John Adams Jr. Who I think is probably better than dad. Both do outstanding work for Colt and other manufactures. Chambered in 44-40, Action work done by Bob James of Phx., Az.  If you all visit my web site http//www.kidsopris.com and go to the link Guns of the West you will see better pictures. Both guns are done exactly alike, and the hammers with the steer skull engraved both sides are to compliment the Ivory grips, (right and Left side guns). Even the front sights are engraved. My CCW carry gun is engraved also the same way except for 4 3/4" barrel. The grips were done a little different as they were done by 'Willy B. Ellis" of Colt fame.

Yes I shoot them, and they will be on display at EOT, since I am working the Colt Booth and Happy Trails Childrens Foundation Booth, this year. And at the Carolina Bell Bust Out! See Y'all at the shoot.

Well I to ride for the Henry Brand.  I have a Navy Arms Military model in 44 wcf and a 66 in 44 spl.  They were both altered to feed 44 Russians but so far the Henry doesn't like the BP.  The guy I got it from said he never had a problem shooting the Russians in it.  I might get the chamber sleeved.

Appreciate it if you would add me and my brother to the list of "Henrys' Forever"
I've had mine since back in 1986 in 44WCF. He has two of 'em in 45 Colt. "Two"!!!
Before he got his, we both used mine in the North Carolina State Shoot. It was so hot,
we actually iced the barrel more than once. And no, (I know what you're thinking)
there was no damage done.

Gentlemen,

Can i join? I have two henrys and a 66 all in 45 lc. My oldest( and prettiest)  is a brass frame  that ken hurst engraved for me 7-8 years ago.It has an artillery scene on  one side and my coat of arms on the other. It doesnt go out to play much anymore, but it sure dresses up the fireplace! The 66 gets used for sass. I recently got an iron framed  henry for sass/war between the states (you cant say civil war in atlanta!) reenacting.  I will try to send some pictures as soon as my wife learns to  use her new camera.

Best,

This past year I decided Capt. Augustus had to have a 1860 Henry.  Since getting it, I had a local gunsmith take 4 " off the barrel.  It really makes a lot of difference in handling.  It's in .45 and can hold 10 .45 LC or 11 Schofields.

Your Gun will feed both 45 LC or 45 Schofields ? Have you modified it at the reciever ?
If not how reliable in  Schofield compaired to LC is the feeding ?

I have not even tried it... But My Opentops are 45 Sch. as is my Spencer.... if the Henry were to work well in Schofield that would simplfy the loading table for me.

Hello all,
I have one I bought a few months back. It is an Uberti. I paid a couple of hundred down and after handling it there in WCI (Walter Craig) in Selma, Al. I had to have it. I then worked my butt off with some overtime and went and picked it up. Oh what a beauty. It is in .45 Colt. When I shot it, it was grouping pretty good but hitting very low, even at just 30 yards or so. So I wound up filing my front site down and now it hits pretty much dead on at 100 yards. I do wish I had've gotten the military version though with the sling attachment things on the stock and side of barrel. I like a sling on any sort of long arm.
Take care,
Pistolero

I'm not a big fan of Italian guns, but they got the Henry right! I have owned mine for about 8 - 9 years and it has functioned flawlessly. .45 Colt (st. wall just like the .44 Henry) with never anything but BP threw it, usually 32 g. of Goex 2f. Dead on with the lawrence sights at 100 yds. I've emptied close to 50 rds. in pie plate like group with no cleaning or wiping the bore, probably could have emptied another 50 if I had them. Those deep grooves the Italians use are just the ticket. I've always wondered who the genius was that thought red heavily laquered stocks looked good though.
