I found a 44 special Uberti Henry for sale in Germany .
1350 plus shipping .
One from FFL in  Germany to the USA and to The FFL in Michigan another 1300 .00 for the fees and transfer.
And all has to be Pre Paid and it takes 6 to 8 months to make it happen .
To rich for my blood .

  Don't know if it's been mentioned yet, but I think the simplest solution would be to buy a Henry in 44-40, have the chamber cut out, sleeved and rechambered to .44 Special or Russian, similar to sleeving a barrel.
  I'd contact John Taylor http://johntaylormachine.com/38.0.html. He's very well known for his work sleeving barrels and he sleeved the barrel of one of my old Winchester '73's. I removed the barrel (super easy on this type rifle), sent it to him and in 2 or 3 weeks had the barrel back with an invoice. That's right....he did the work, returned it, THEN asked for payment.

      Greetings, All!

   As You may know, I sold my Henry .44-40, and bought a Win 1866 "Musket" in .44WCF. I STILL WANT an A.Uberti Brass-Framed
Henry Military Model in .44Spl. ( .44R, actually... ). Just in case the Gun Gods are feeling propitious...

Observation:  The .442 groove diameter of the .44 Henry flat is just as close to .45 Colt as it is to .44 Special.  Get a .45 Henry, modify the block for .45 Cowboy, and ballisticly you are there.  Neither case uses a Heel bullet, so the only advantage I can see to the special is it has "44" in the name.  Or just use .45 S&W and be happy.

Observation:  Starline is making .41 special brass, which is an easy trim down to .44 Henry CF.  I know, as I have trimmed 100 of these down to use in my .440 Argentine Nagant.  (the Nagant round being pretty much a .44 HCF with a different head stamp)  And yes, I strangely enjoy making heeled bullet rounds . . .

      Greetings!

   I cut .41S&WM down to about 0.9" to make .44LCF for my OM F. Wesson Rifle. It's close...!
