Henry Repeating Arms Side Gate .45-70 Gov Lever Action Rifle 20" Barrel 4 Rounds Tube Magazine Adjustable Rear Sight Walnut Stock Brass/Blued Finish H024-4570
The Henry 1860 Lever Action is a legendary classic, but now in a first of its kind redesign, Henry offers the best of both worlds paring their traditional tubular magazine with a side gate for easy loading. This is a great concept that allows the safe easy unloading of a tube mag, with the speed and convince of loading through a side gate. In true Henry form you get the exquisite craftsmanship that Henry Repeating Arms is known for. The hardened polished brass receiver is drilled and tapped to accept Weaver 63B scope bases. It has a blued 19.8" round barrel with a ramped ivory bead front sight and a fully adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sight that has a diamond insert to ensure superior accuracy. A beautiful American walnut stock and forend with intricate fine checkering is set off with brass accents to give you the sharp iconic look that is uniquely Henry. Ideal for target shooting or medium to large game hunting, this is a collector quality piece that you will be proud to pass down to the next generation.
In the past, Henry has always taken inspiration from the original 1860s-era Henry rifle by opting to design our firearms with a removable tube magazine. We’re no sticks in the mud though, and when loyal Henry customers ask, loyal Henry customers receive. Our Side Gate Lever Action offers up the best of both worlds with our 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 center 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 favorite show-piece in the gun cabinet, our 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.
