    I would love to see Henry make one, either a lever or single shot!

    If anyone is thinking about a newer 38/55, I have a Win. 94 Legacy Model 26" barrel, that I bought just before Winchester quit making the American made 1894's.

    Barrel is .379" groove diameter, and using Starline brass, it chambers .380" and .381" boolits nicely. Very accurate, and I wouldn't sell it for any amount. Just saying so if you see one, you know what the bore dimensions and performance is.

    Winchester rep. said the groove diameter is .379" and lands are .373" on these rifles.

    Bought right, the original Winny would be my pick with full length mag. You have an original. That counts down the road. I have a Uberti HW in 38-55 & love it, .380 bore & all. Yes, I have to have special order bullets to get max accuracy. You also have to find which length brass works best. BUT, it is a fun, non punishing round & you will enjoy it immensely.

    My dad hunted moose and mule deer with a 38-55 in the 1930s in Northern Alberta - the only hunting round he liked more was the 30/06
    One of the neighbors had a 280 Ross that he would borrow from time to time
