In the past, Henry has always taken inspiration from the original 1860s-era Henry rifle by opting to design their firearms with a removable tube magazine. The people at Henry are no sticks in the mud though, and when loyal Henry customers ask, loyal Henry customers receive. Their Side Gate Lever Action offers up the best of both worlds with their standard removable tube magazine for safe and easy unloading and a side loading gate to keep the magazine topped off.
True to Henry form, the Side Gate Lever Action features exquisite attention to detail and a level of craftsmanship rarely seen in other modern firearms. The hardened brass receiver is as reliable as it is handsome with the same yield and tensile strength as steel. The brass accents continue through the rifle with the buttplate and barrel band. The American walnut furniture is set off by intricate, deep checkering that will ensure a firm purchase on the stocks. A semi-buckhorn rear and ivory bead front sight accompanies a 20″ round blued steel barrel to deliver the accuracy you’ve come to expect from a Henry.
In addition to legendary Henry craftsmanship, the feature that gives this rifle its name takes centre stage. The best-of-both-worlds design allows for quick reloads and top-offs so you can keep running and gunning for as long as your ammo lasts without even having to remove the stock from your shoulder. If you prefer, you can also load through the removable tube magazine, which hasn’t gone away here because it also provides safe, fast unloading. The result is a rifle that lets you use it in whatever way works best for you.
From whitetail hunting to days at the range, to standing as a favourite show-piece in the gun cabinet, Henry's Side Gate Lever Action is a must-have for any lever action aficionado, and it solidifies Henry as the first name in lever action rifles.
