Nostalgic Finish Meets Modern Construction...
Henry Repeating Arms recognizes that the lever action world is a wide one, with all sorts of lever-gunners looking for all sorts of lever actions to fill all sorts of lever action needs and desires. Henry does their best to accommodate all of those segments among their customers, and if you happen to be a student of the Old West, or an admirer of the traditional looks (and nostalgia) of time-honoured case hardened colours, they have your corner covered with the Steel Colour Cased models.
One of Henry's most appealing steel frame finishes, the colours come from a genuine case-hardening process on frame and rifle-style fore-end cap that sets these rifles apart from their other blued models, without the bright “Here I am!” of the brass and silver rifles. In the woods, where they’re right at home, the deep bluing, dark walnut, and mottled case colours form their own basic camouflage that your Great Grandpa would have been very familiar with while hunting deer or elk, and Henry likes to think he would have been quite appreciative to have this Henry along.
Merging old with new, the profile of the Colour Case Hardened rifles is conventional, and the .45-70 calibre is also long-established. The .45-70 dates back to 1873, and while it may be considered ancient today, with this calibre the modern hunter can handle anything from coyote to grizzly, with the right load.
The rifles themselves are built at Henry's Rice Lake, Wisconsin, factory (where all the steel models are produced), 100% American, in traditional form with octagonal barrels, adjustable buckhorn and bead sights, and checkered walnut furniture. The modern part comes from the quality steels Henry uses, the transfer bar safety, the Henry magazine tube loading, sling swivel studs, a drilled and tapped frame, and a ventilated rubber recoil pad. The .45-70 has a pistol-grip so you're ready to carry on where Great Grandpa left off. This would be considered a deluxe model in his time, and if he were around today, you’d undoubtedly get an envious nod of approval.
