Headed off to the local match with the HRA Henry today.  We will see how she does.  As an aside, I showed it to my shooting pard "Hanging Judge Hemp" yesterday, and he was awestruck.  He also said it is the smoothest factory action he has ever seen, and as good as some of his custom, slicked up guns.

I'll take some pice for the article, too.

It's too bad we can't "feel the action" in an article!   :)

WOW!,  it was so slick!  No comparison with other non-HRA 1860s!  I cycled so fast I surprised myself.  Breaking clay pigeons and pop cans at 25 yards with monotonous regularity (We can't shoot steel at our range because the Birkenstock and man bun wearing friends of the chipmunks transplants from Berkeley got an injunction forcing us to stop shooting steel targets!).  Amazing rifle.  Some comparisons with the Navy Arms one. NA top, HRA bottom.

ABB-SOO-LUTE-LEE Outstanding.  Just wish I had enough inna Sock Drawer to afford one.  I'd be more than happy to have one in my safe, and It wouldn't spend much time there.  Only one last question.

Does it have the Cleaning Rod Trap in the Butt Stock??

I love this rifle!  Used it at another local match.  We were shooting pop cans at 25 yards for rifle targets, and I was nailing them every time.  Just kept it tucked into my shoulder tight, and cradled the junction of barrel and receiver in the off hand, elbow against my body. Silky smooth with no hiccups.  Shot clean with the rifle again.  It sure got lots of admiring looks and comments, too, with its finish and figured walnut stock.
