People have been talking about the Henry rifles in .30-30 and .45-70. All I had seen until today was pictures.
Well I saw a .30-30 at a LGS today and I have to tell you it was a damn good looking gun!
The metal work was flawless. and the wood was really nice and especially for a generic class gun. I tend not to care too much for the brass receiver covers for Henry rifles and this gun was all blued steel and done very well. It was a little stiff to operate but shooting it would have definitely taken care of that. It was new.
The wood was a cut above generic walnut and the wood to metal fit was very good, not absolutely perfect but once again it was well up in the generic gun classification. Easily as good a Marlin's wood fit. It would not have held me back from buying the gun. I just don't need another .30-30.
This one also had nice checkering on the pistol grip and fore end. Looked like hand done work.
Also the lines of the gun were very nice. It looked like a levergun should, but not exactly like a Marlin or Winchester. It is a tube fed gun with the loading done like a tube fed .22.
I have to tell you guys,,, This gun was nice! and you wouldn't go wrong getting one for a deer rifle or whatever else you'd use a .30-30 for.
The pics of the .45-70 look identical except for the hole in the barrel.
