    Henry Single Shot rifles?

    Anybody have one? The price seems about right.

    Compared to the CVA single shots, these Henry are really nice and US made. I've seen the 5.56 and .243 and both had beautiful walnut stocks.

    I was looking at a CVA Scout in 44 mag, but these Henry single shot rifles have me thinking twice...

    I have a CVA Hunter in 35 Remington that I like, but it seems to me the Henry rifle is a couple steps up and for only a few dollars more than the CVA Scout.

    If they had 45 Colt, I'd have one. Probably 30-30 also.

    All they need to do now is chamber them in .22 Hornet, .25-20 and .32-20!

    A .44 mag with a twist rate for 300 gr. boolits and a threaded muzzle would be sweet.

    Considering that a used H&R would cost almost that, it’s a bargain.

    45 colt and 357 mag would be hot sellers.

    I looked at one in 308 yesterday at our local gun show and the fit/finish was very good. I hope Henry decides to expand on the caliber choices.

    I would be interested in a 357 magnum version. I like the look of them. I always liked the H&Rs too.

    Maybe could use one in .44 Special but what I've really wanted is a .41 Mag.

    And how about 357 Maximum?

    Anyone have one in 45-70 yet? I had a Handi in 45-70 with absolutely no throat. It was difficult to close the action because the rifiling would engage the bullet. If these 45-70 Henrys have a throat, I want one!

    Four-Sixty you could maybe get the throat on that Handi-Rifle reamed out some? The Henry's look interesting.

    Mr Sheesh. I asked two gunsmiths who declined because it was a Handi. I sold it off. I think I saw a similar report for the CVA Hunter not having a throat either.
