Henry produces, hands down, some of the best-looking lever action rifles on the market in their brass and silver models, but as a part of Henry's aggressive expansion into the more utilitarian side of life with newer steel centerfires meant for everyday life in the truck, on the farm, and through the woods, in 2016 they introduced the hard-working All-Weather H010AW in .45-70.
In profile and general dimensions, this Henry offering is essentially the same as the blued steel counterparts, with 18.43” round barrel with 4-shot magazine in this .45-70, and both with adjustable buckhorn/bead sights. Like the blued rifles, the All-Weathers also wear the same wrist profile pistolgrip in the .45-70. The major differences lie in the first time Henry has used hard chrome plating on all metal surfaces (except springs and sights), and a durable industrial-grade coating on hardwood furniture.
In a tough world where a working rifle might be “rode hard and put away wet”, this is the finish you want on it. A very strong plating permanently bonded to the steel underneath, hard chrome doesn’t flake, chip, or peel, and its corrosion resistance is actually stronger than some stainless steels. The treatment Henry uses increases surface hardness, reduces friction on moving parts, doesn’t normally scuff or scratch, and leaves a low-gloss look that won’t spook game.
The furniture is another departure for Henry; they’ve based a good part of their reputation on their select American walnut over the years, but here Henry opted for a stained hardwood with a carefully-selected coating that’s formulated to stand up to wear, tear, scratches, moisture, temperature variations, and the angst of the various “character marks” an everyday outdoor tool inevitably picks up during its lifetime.
If you want beauty, this Henry has got it. If you want a more subdued partner you can depend on to ride any trail with, any time, any season, and in any weather, Henry does that too.
