    Good morning
    Check Gunbroker... If none are there probably it will be hard to find one.
    Henry is doing some very good things for us Lever shooters. We are waiting for the 16 inch 41 mag to get well circulated now. The 20 incher is a fine shooting rifle.

    My local gun store has them on the wish list at several distributors.
    (Puts them in line when they come in)
    But they haven't been notified yet

    Got an email from Anthony Imperato (company president) on March 28. He said "We start shipping in couple weeks". I'm thinking next Wednesday.

    I'm really looking forward to these, I've fallen in love with that cartridge.

    I emailed Mr Imperata inquiring about ship dates for the .327 Big Boy steel.
    I was assured that when they do start to ship, my rifle will be drop-shipped factory direct to my FFL.

    I talked to customer service yesterday. Associate told me that the .327 and the .41mag Big Boys were competing for production time, and the .41mags won out. Started producing the .41's first.

    I was told to expect the .327's to start shipping this week or next.

    I was prompted by customer service to email Mr. Imperata and request the specific model I was looking for.
    I was told that Henry expects the .327's to be a very hot commodity and probably be hard to find through conventional channels.

    I was informed that making a request directly to the company president would be the best way to ensure that I received one of these new models from the first run.

    I've been expecting my FFL to call any day now...

    I emailed Henry customer service a few days ago. I came right out and asked what the problems were, why the continued delays.

    I received a reply stating that they were having difficulties getting .32H&Rmag to feed reliably.
    They said they would rather delay the release than to release a product the customer would need to send back.

    Kudo's to Henry for wanting to get it right.
    They feel confident about late May.
    Now, get it right, and ship my Big Boy steel .327 please...

    I hope they're not holding up the single shots to get this going , seriously though It nice to know they will have it right before it leaves the factory .

    I emailed a couple weeks ago asking about the brass 41s (rifle and carbine) was told they should be ready to ship around the end of the month(May) and should start seeing them a week or two later on the shelves. Which would be pushing mid June?

    The roll out of those promised new models in March 2017 have yet to be seen. It appears "Imperato put the cart before the horse"

    Good morning
    My two cents... I am not about to criticize any gun company that is trying to increase production. Plus what other company is willing to listen to the desires of American hunter / shooters. When most other American outfits are looking at $$$$, Henry has given us new rifles, new calibers and doing a good job expanding the line. I say... Bully for Henry Rifles !

    My take on the matter..... kudos to a firearms company that has TOO MUCH business. And the thought and foresite to get it right the first time.... even if it ruffles a few feathers because of a few delays. It WILL be worth the wait.

    Would love to work for Henry. Sounds like job security to me!
