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,

Cannon Fodder

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.
when planets align...do the deal !

Count me in as a Henry shooter. I bought mine last January, an' shot it in several shoots includin' the Idaho State Shoot last year. It was one of only two I saw there. I didn't win, but I beat 'em all hands down on style points... ;D

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
Millbrook, Al.

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.

Yep, am a Henry Shooter and have had it in 45 Colt for about 2 years now...
James, agree with that red stock finish  :P  I took mine down to bare wood and did a 10 coat linseed-danish oil finish to it.  Looks much better.  Also made one of them magazine spacers which is a nice aid when shooting it ... Original Powder!

Please add me to the list.  I have a Navy Arms Henry in 44-40.  Henry's are probably my favorite long arm of all time.

I have no idea if I qualify as aHenry Shooter or not but I just ordered a Henry 'Big Boy' in.45 L Colt this is NOT a replica but the genuwine artical. Are there ANY restrictions on using the Henry 'Big Boy' in SASS/CAS/NCOWS orW3G matches?
an inquiring mind wants to know.

Cyrille, the Henry Bigboy is legal for SASS but not NCOWS.  I have no idea about W3G.  The reason that NCOWS doesn't allow the Bigboy is that it is an organization that tries to recapture what our forefathers experienced.  Since this rifle isn't a copy of any historical firearm it isn't allowed.  It has been said of the Henry Bigboy that it is a perfect replica of a gun that didn't exist during our era.

I am sure it is a well made rifle and it is American made.  Too bad they didn't put the same effort into a more historical gun such as a Whitney.

I have a question that involves, not only my new Henry, but if I recall correctly every pistol, revolver, rifle and shotgun I've purchased they are all filthy when I get them home and I have to spend  an hour  or more getting them in clean before I even put a round through them! I realize that they are 'proof' tested before being put on the market but one would think that the manufacturer would have enough pride in their product to clean them before selling their guns to the public. Just my opinion.
