Brandon Evans: If you go on the Henry Repeating Arms website they have very informative
maintenance videos for their rifles. Go over to wear it says "Own a Henry"
and click on Rifle Maintenance Videos. Gives you a basic introduction, goes
over disassembly, cleaning & lubrication, Reassembly, Safety, Loading,
Sights, and a wrap up.
chexmygold: Big Boy .357 s seem to be scarce right now. Those that are selling, like on
gun broker dot com, are going over the "M S R P" . I am still looking! How
different is the .38 special in this rifle?
doomedtoindoorranges: Congratulations and enjoy, you should many years of fun with that rifle,
Dan J: Down side is that you have to load from the front of the tubular mag.
That's just not as cool as a side receiver. and the 92's are said to have
the smoothest action. So with that logic you should have a Winchester 92 :)
But I do agree henry's look nice
Pupil0fGod: Its such a beautiful gun, I'm thinking it will make its place as 5th or 6th
in my collection, depending on if I acquire a evil black gun first. 1.
Mosin 2. Maverick 88 3. 1851 navy in .36 cap&ball 4. .357 mag (future)
Joe Lewus: I guess the people I ordered from were too lazy I didn't wait long. I did
put an order in at two other stores and they didn't deliver. When I picked
mine up there was another but it went to an order. usually I only see 45
long colt in stores, never .357. That is odd for a business to not try and
stock an item that is an easy sell. BTW it was $869.99 plus tax and back
ground check call charge.
baldbollocks: All very nice but lets SEE the target ! !
Joe Lewus: I got lucky, I ordered one and received it last week. If you want one find
a store that is identified as a Gold Dealer by Henry and order from them. I
have also seen one on Gunsamerica online but it was bought like the next
day it was listed.
Lion Phoenix: Man I want one of these so much.
Lion Phoenix: I reload too. One question though. How are these guns with lead hard cast
bullets? (with gas checks of course).
doomedtoindoorranges: @ctrlaltWOOT Thanks and Thanks for watching:)
gunman5566: Do the gloves help?
doomedtoindoorranges: I shoot a great deal, so the hands can get a little worn and just the extra
added layer of protection against a hot barrel etc., it's really personal
pref., but the gloves seem to make a difference for me, but I will say, if
I'm going to shoot a pistol match, I would wear only one glove but for
rifle or long gun I wear both, Thanks for watching, take care:)
jimmy6stringsroveto: Man, I want one. Such a beautiful gun.
doomedtoindoorranges: Cool, that would be great. I think I remember reading in the manual
something not needing to break it down, run a patch thru your barrel and
clean the chamber, I could be wrong but I think I saw that, but I do not
break it down for cleaning, take care and have a good one:)
olboomer: ...and how much did you pay for it btw
Z71usa: I'll try to get a shooting video next time I make it to the range. Do you
normally break yours all the way down to clean it? I haven't been able to
find any good videos on disassembly and cleaning.
doomedtoindoorranges: @baldbollocks What target? it's completely blown away;) Thanks for watching
and Merry Christmas!
doomedtoindoorranges: In my experiance, the lever action is far smoother on the Henry and the fit
and finish is better on the Henry but Marlin is great rifle, if I was going
to pick between the two, I would choose the Henry due to the smooth lever
action. Thanks for watching and take care:)
Lion Phoenix: Man you lucky duck! I called Henry repeating arms a few days ago and the
gave me a phone number to give to the firearms dealers in my area to call
to order one. I was told by the person I spoke to at Henry that they are
available.The problem is that most of the gun dealers even the gold Henry
dealers in my area are a bunch of lazy bastards that just blow smoke in
your face. They can't be bothered to order the gun you want.They just want
you to buy something they have in stock. Bunch of assholes!
doomedtoindoorranges: I'm a handloader, so from that point of view the .357 would be easier to
deal with ammo wise and you could load the .357 pretty hot, however the
30-30 is a great round and has been around for a long time and has alot
more punch to it. The other nice thing about .357 is you could match a
handgun to that caliber, there are semi-auto's out there in .357 as well as
the old stand by, the revolver. For me, I would choose the .357 over the
30-30, if you have any other questions, please PM me, Thanks:)
doomedtoindoorranges: @olboomer I have not fired a Rossi, really want to though, it seems spot on
right from Henry, I have not had to adjust the iron sights but I have only
fired it at 50 yards, but overall it is a very nice rifle and I would
recommend this one or any Henry. Take care ans Thanks for watching:)
doomedtoindoorranges: You made a great choice, Henry firearms are very nice and shoot very well,
plus they are made in the USA! Send me a shooting vid when you get time,
Thanks for watching and take care:)
doomedtoindoorranges: @doomedtoindoorranges Cool, Thanks to you as well. I love the lever action
rifles, take care and Thanks for watching:)
doomedtoindoorranges: @23mrcowboys Where I live at there's no place to hunt without driving
several hours, but it's a fun shooter, Thanks for stopping by, take care.
olboomer: Nice, how would you rate accuracy compared to Marlin / Rossi / Handi ?
Joe Lewus: Good luck finding one in .357
Z71usa: I just picked up one of these in .357 I haven't seen one in person before
they are absolutely awesome. The store I found it at had 2 in stock. I was
awe struck and had to buy it on the spot @699 I felt like I was getting a
doomedtoindoorranges: @olboomer I had to order it because I could not find a gun shop that had
one in stock, so I probably paid a bit more but it ran me about 950.00 out
the door brand new. Thanks for watching and take care:)
doomedtoindoorranges: @andrew40000 Thanks so much. The Henry is quite heavy and can be a strain
to hold it up in the off hand position for a long period of time, but it is
very comfortable to fire due to the extra weight, with a bench, you could
shoot it all day and not even feel it. I have not fired 38 specials thru it
at all but I did notice in the manual not to use ammo like blazers, the
aluminum cases might bend when the elevator pushed the shell upward,
overall, it's an awesome lever gun, Thanks for watching:)
Lion Phoenix: I have been searching for 5 months.
Z71usa: Great thanks. I remember reading that in the manual also. It just seems a
little strange to not break a gun down for cleaning. I bought a bore snake
and I'll just start with cleaning it that way. Cheers!
doomedtoindoorranges: You are so right, very nice rifle and a pleasure to shoot, you will not be
disappointed when you purchase one, Thanks for watching and take care:)
doomedtoindoorranges: @Pupil0fGod Thank you very much, not only is it beautiful but the lever
action on Henry firearms are like butter, so smooth and such a pleasure to
shoot:) I know you would enjoy one, I would love to aquire the .44 mag
version as well. Thanks again, take care and Thanks for watching:)
andrew40000: Nice shootin, I've been considering buying this gun but I read some reviews
regarding it being muzzle heavy? Is it comfortable to shoot for long
periods while standing? Also, have you had any issues firing .38 and .357
through this gun at all?
damiion666: Im considering selling off my semi auto black rifles and getting a good
lever action to replace my shtf gun. Im debating whether to go with a 30 30
or a 357. What do u think? I believe the marlin 30 30 can only hold 7
rounds. How is the recoil with the 357?
