Henry Repeating Arms have had a dip in popularity and sales from 2014 to 2016. But since last January (2017) the sales and popularity is up at plus or minus 100%. (source: Google Trends) One big popular rifle among cowboys and hunters is the Henry Repeating in 44 magnum. So why is it that its such an awesome rifle? Here’s some reason why:
Straight out of the box with 44 mag loads you can zero in at 100 yards with 3-inch groups, if you’re a decent shot on a stable platform.
In other words the rifle is quick and slick, everything on it when working the lever is just smooth. Quick when working the lever for the next round.
To reduce the recoil on the 44 magnum Henry Repeating Arms incorporates the heavy octagon barrel, weighted forward balance and wide buttplate mitigates the recoil.
Simple Safety Henry rifles do not feature a manual or half cock safety. Their safety features or mechanisms is not needed on a lever action rifle if handled carefully. Henry does have a trigger tab safety which requires the lever action to be fully closed in order the trigger to be fired. Henry has a firing pin block safety that prevents the hammer from hitting the firing pin unless the trigger is fully depressed. Very straightforward in its simplistic operation and common sense approach.
