Henry Debuts Two New Side-Gate Lever-Actions

Henry Repeating Arms is expanding their line of side-gate lever-actions to include a 19.8"-barreled rifle in .45-70 Gov't, and a similarly dimensioned shotgun in .410 bore. In both form and function, these new side-gate lever-actions share much with earlier models. The firearm’s namesake loading gate on the right side of the receiver (below the ejection port) is coupled with Henry’s historically inspired removable tube magazine. This allows the shooter to safely unload the firearm without working live rounds through the action, while still retaining the ability to keep the magazine topped off through the side gate.

“We put a lot of focus into listening to what our fans and customers want from the next Henry,” says Henry Repeating Arms president and owner, Anthony Imperato. He continues, “Real feedback and product suggestions from people that are out there using our rifles and shotguns carry a lot of weight and it’s what drives a lot of our product development. Our release of the Side Gate Lever Action earlier this year, and these new calibers, are a great example of that.”

That last quotation is in reference to “The Suggestion Box,” a feature Henry recently added to their website, which allows users to submit their firearm idea or concept for Henry to consider in the future. A side-gate lever-action in .45-70 Gov't and .410 bore were two of the top suggestions so far. For more information on these new Henry firearms, please visit henryusa.com. MSRP: $1,045
