Original Henry Rifle - Only 1 Available This Year

Original Henry Rifle - Only 1 Available This Year

Invented in the late 1850s by Benjamin Tyler Henry, this revolutionary lever action repeating rifle was the most important firearm of its time and went on to become the most legendary American firearm of all time.

Patented in 1860 and first used during the Civil War, the rifle's rapid fire capability and high-capacity tubular magazine stood in amazing contrast to its single-shot musket counterpart. It became known as the rifle you could load on Sunday and shoot all week long.

Henry Rifle 44-40

The Original Henry Rifle is virtually identical to its history-making forerunner. The only exception, it is a .44-40 Win calibre. The 1860 version was made in the long obsolete.44 Rimfire. Every other facet remains true to the original.

Henry Rifle 44-40

Made with the same pride and attention to detail as all Henry rifles, the Original 44-40 features a hardened brass receiver with the same tensile and yield strength as steel; a one piece, 24 1/2 inch octagonal barrel/tubular feed; a genuine American fancy walnut buttstock and a classic folding ladder rear sight paired with a traditional blade front sight.

With only one of these unique rifles available in the UK this year, the ORIGINAL HENRY 44-40 is a true collectors item.
