The Henry Steel Side Gate Lever Action Rifle Is the Choice Of Big-Game Hunters

The Henry Steel Lever Action Side Gate is an excellent example of a rifle that has stood the test of time. As the choice of big game hunters the steel side gate chambered in .45-70 Government offers your maximum stopping power for anything that would amble your way. The checkered American Walnut stock adds a classic visual appeal to the rounded 18.4" barrel with blued metal work. The side loading gate makes reloading quick and easy when you need to top off the 4 shot tubular magazine. The adjustable Semi-Buckhorn rear sight and brass beaded front sight provide you with an excellent quick acquisition sight picture. Should you decide to add an optic the receiver is drilled and tapped and will accept a Weaver 63B scope mount type which is sold separately.

Originally a military caliber standardized for the battlefields of the 1870s, .45-70 Government has stood the test of time and still thrives nearly a century and a half later in hunting camps across the country. When it comes to hurling a huge chunk of lead downrange, there is no finer way to do it than with a Henry.

Sufficiently punchy enough to stop any North American game, .45-70 started with a 405-grain lead bullet propelled with 70 grains of black powder. A longer 500-grain grain load was later added to extend effective range, while the original lighter cartridge was kept for use in cavalry carbines. Since then, this caliber gained wide commercial support, and you can find anything from a high-velocity expanding 300-grain load to 600-grain subsonic. The robust rimmed case feeds reliably from tube magazines, while modest chamber pressure aids extraction. Once available in every kind of action, .45-70 recommended itself best in lever-action repeaters. The Henry Steel Lever Action .45-70 Side Gate is the most advanced example of that breed.

The H010G is fairly light at seven pounds for easy game stalking, and the ventilated rubber recoil pad keeps it easy on the shoulder. The matte blued steel receiver and an 18.4″ round barrel are all-business, while beautiful checkered American walnut adds the classic visual appeal that we made our name on. The pistol-grip buttstock and steel-capped forend come with sling swivel studs already installed so that a sling can be used for stability and muzzle rise control. The side-loading gate makes reloading and topping off the four-shot tubular magazine quick and easy without losing your sight picture. For quick and safe unloading without cycling cartridges through the action, the rifle also retains our original front-loading option.

The adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sight and a brass-beaded front post sight work best for rapid shots typical of hog hunts, while the drilled and tapped receiver enables easy scope mounting for deliberate longer-range aim. Handy and powerful, this lever gun delivers rapid follow-up shots on grizzly and precise one-shot stops on whitetail deer with equal competency. The Steel Lever Action .45-70 Side Gate provides stopping power, accuracy, and reliability at an unbeatable price tag — all in a classic style.
