Invented in the 1850's by Benjamin Tyler Henry, this lever action rifle's rapid fire capability and high-capacity tubular magazine stood in amazing contrast to its single-shot musket counterpart. The Original Henry Rifle is identical to its history-making forerunner with the exception of caliber. Henry replaced the obsolete .44 Rimfire cartridge, exchanging it for the .44-40 caliber. Every other facet remains true to its inventor, and each gun's serial number begins with the initials BTH in his honor.
The Original Henry Rifle has a grooved receiver for easy scope mounting. The hardened brass has the same tensile and yield strength as steel. The Original Henry Rifle also features a one piece, 24.5" inch octagonal barrel/tubular feed; a genuine American fancy walnut buttstock with a hardened brass buttplate, and a classic folding ladder rear sight paired with a traditional blade front sight. All Henry Repeating Arms products and parts are manufactured in the U.S.A.
