    Henry’s new side gate pistol calibers

    I’m a big fan of lever guns. Henry has released their new side gate pistol calibers in an all black. I’m more the fan of the classic look which I hope isn’t too far down the road.

    On no! Now they've done it. All black, threaded for silencer, picatinny railed... One of those evil "assault" lever actions!!!

    Maybe that's good thinking with it being an election year. ��

    I am thinking that when they run through their inventory of big boy rifles, we will see side loading gate versions of all the big boys.
    Due to the price of primers, warning shots will no longer be given!

    Gross. Tactical lever guns. Really?

    I'm not saying that it will not sell, but I guarantee they will not sell one to me.

    At least the .44 mag sports a 1:20 twist!

    Ray, I have the Big Boy Steel All Weather. According to the website, it also has the 1:20 inch twist. Will do some shooting with the new rifle this week. Load is the 265 gr. SAECO I got from you over 8.0 Green Dot. Will see how those shoot and start working toward the 8.6 gr. load.
    The All Weather is a very practical and nice looking rifle without all the tacticool features.

    This may require a closer examination.

    .

    No thanks.....

    Tactical looks aside, if I wanted a pistol-caliber levergun, I'd want one with appropriate downsizing, and not one meant for larger cartridges.

    Like a Winchester 92 ILO a Model 94, a Marlin 1894 ILO a Model 336, etc, etc.

    Experience is a wonderful thing - It lets you recognize a mistake, when you make it again.

    Sweet! I was looking at a 1894CSBL, but might have to get one of these instead.

    Just saw the new Henrys last night. Fantastic. I had always put off buying a Henry because I knew I would dent, ding, mar, or scratch a beautiful rifle. Now this will be a lot of fun.

    Now that is interesting!
    When guns are outlawed only criminals and the government will have them and at that time I will see very little difference in either!

    Mossberg makes one like that, and one was one too many.

    I'm right there with you......buuuuut. Give me a classic model 92ish lever gun with both tube and side gate loading.....Tube for initial load and unloading and side gate for reloading....hmmmm. I could be tempted. Maybe.

    .44 Mag would make a good heavy cast boolit pig gun.

    There may come a time when AR's are banned and lever actions will be the best option when the SHTF. I have three .30/30's, three .38/,357, and three .22's. The problem I have...nine is an odd number!

    They have gone overboard. One rail on the top for scope or dot sight is enough. KISS
