New Henry 45-70

45-70 has been on my list for decades, but never got around to it because of other 458 alternative I have. But--of all places--my local Wally World started carrying Henry--and I saw it and thought hmmmm. But I always thought when I got one it would be a marlin trapper, from what I've heard they are producing excellent ones these days, but at my other LGS they cost just as much as the Henry, so that was a bit of a strike against that in my book. The first Henry lever I bought was one of their first runs of 41 mag--and that experience didn't go very well, so I've shied away from Henry for quite a while--but decided I'd give em a second try to see if I have better luck--this is the 22" octagonal barrel big boy. I would have preferred something else than a brass receiver--who knows maybe this and my blr will make a glamorous couple.
