It was actually arranged between Henry and the Cowboy Chronicle for me to do one of my feature length history/review articles on the Henry.  The terms were awesome and I could not say no....  I have to admit I am pretty darned excited.  I looked at one at our local match and I was very impressed.  Out of the box it was WAY smoother than a Uberti.

It will be neat to compare it to my early Navy Arms made Henry.

It is the quarterly magazine of the Single Action Shooting Society.  It is not for sale anywhere I know of. Once it is published and seen by members,  I can distribute it farther.  I already have some articles stacked up, so probably be next year around January.

My only complaint (and it had been noted before) is that is is so highly polished, the octagonal barrel edges are buffed a little rounded.  It has a beautiful American black walnut stock, and the deepest bluing I have ever seen!

   Yes, I've also noted the over-polishing; it's a shame. The blueing is nice, however.

The good news is that I will have it out of Commiefornia jail for the next local match on the 20th.  I can't wait.

If anyone is interested, my 1976 early Navy Arms built Henry is available on the SASS Wire.  I really can't justify having two Henry rifles. There are other toys I need more!

There goes your International Multiple Henry Owners Association membership  ::)

Current members met and voted for your admission w/ only one abstain....

  then you go and admit  " I really can't justify having two Henry rifles "

The horror .....   one does not justify.   One just accepts fate and commits to lust ! ;D

PLUS ONE too MAJOR 2

There was a time some Lustrum(s) ago, when I get it necessary to justify the acquisition of another Henry.  At the Thyme I only had two and had a buyer for one of them so I stupidly sold one (A Favorite) and was suddenly in lust ...... again ....... Rather than give credence to common justification, I simply gave in to LUST and bought another   ;D

It is my considered opinion that Tuolumne Lawman should NOT divest of the Navy Henry    8)

I have a Henry Repeating Arms version and this too is my one and only complaint. The wood on mine is gorgeous and overall a well built and great looking rifle but sure do wish they did a better job when polishing the barrel.

I would Luv to be able to get a hold of and read you article when you have finished and it's been published.

No problem, I will make it available to you guys.

And, I get to pick my Henry up tomorrow at 9AM!  I am going to be like Ralphie in "A Christmas Story" waiting for his Red Ryder BB gun on Christmas Eve.

WOW!!!!!!!  I picked it up today.  It is gorgeous!  I have never seen a firearm packed better than the H011.  The walnut is crazy beautiful, and it has the deepest, and blackest bluing I have ever seen.  Yes, the corners of the barrel are a little more polished than I would like, but I can live with that.  It has the slickest, smoothest factory action (or for that matter any action) I have ever felt.  I get to try it at my local match Saturday, and I can't wait!

It is like a Mercedes or Rolls compared to an Uberti 1860 which would be a Chevy!

These are just cell phone pics.  I'll get some better ones later.
