Last April, Henry Repeating Arms announced a large-scale change to its product line. They company announced it would be adding side-loading gates to all of its legacy rifles in its lineup. That addition encompasses 29 steel framed centerfire lever action rifles in Henry’s library of products.
The new side loading rifles will still include Henry’s removable tube magazine. A design feature taken from the original 1860 model. This transition applies to all Henry lever action rifles chambered in .30-30, .47-40, and .410 bores. It also includes revolver caliber Big Boy rifles as well.
In addition to the side loading gate models, Henry has added two new calibers for its single shot rifles. The new rifles are chambered in .450 Bushmaster and .350 Legend. Henry is also releasing a single shot shotgun chambered in 12 gauge. This shotgun will feature fully rifles barrel and fiber optic sights.
Below is the press release from Henry Repeating Arms on the addition of the side loading gates to its legacy lineup of rifles.
RICE LAKE, WI – November 25, 2020 – American gunmaker Henry Repeating Arms is announcing a large transition in their product catalog with upgrades for their Wisconsin-made lever-action rifles and shotguns and new calibers and configurations for their H015 Single Shot firearms. In total, the announcement is replacing 29 “legacy” models in favor of newly upgraded versions and adding 3 new Single Shots to the Henry lineup.
By popular demand, Henry Repeating Arms is replacing all steel-framed centerfire lever-action rifles and shotguns to include a side loading gate while still retaining the removable tube magazine based on the original Henry rifle patented in 1860. This open-ended magazine design, first introduced with the Henry H024 Side Gate Lever Action in 2019, provides owners with the ability to conveniently load the magazine and keep it topped off through a port in the receiver and safely unload the magazine by twisting out the inner magazine tube. The transition applies to all of Henry’s .30-30 and .45-70 rifles, .410 bore shotguns, and revolver caliber Big Boy rifles in their blued steel, All-Weather, and Color Case Hardened finishes that do not already include a side loading gate.
“Ever since our fans and customers got a taste of a side loading Henry, the requests started rolling in immediately to include this feature on their favorite finish or caliber. These new models are going to make a lot of people very happy, and we are always going to have options for fans of our legacy configuration as well,” states Anthony Imperato, president and owner of Henry Repeating Arms. Imperato continues, “The removable tube magazine is a core part of our product DNA, so that’s not going anywhere, and fans of the classic brass and octagon barrel configurations will always be able to get that from us.”
In addition to the new Side Gate models, Henry is announcing 2 new calibers for the H015 Single Shot Rifle with .350 Legend and .450 Bushmaster. For large game hunters in shotgun-only areas, Henry is also releasing the Henry Single Shot Slug Barrel Shotgun in 12 gauge, which features a fully rifled barrel for use with shotgun slugs and fiber optic sights.
