Henry jefe Anthony Imperato tells TTAG that the New Jersey gunmaker’s busy building The Original Henry Rifle. The “we don’t call it a reproduction rifle” reproduction rifle is set to ship in September, complete with one-piece octagonal barrel, folding ladder rear sight and fancy American walnut buttstock with hardened brass buttplate. It’s “virtually identical” to its history-making forerunner; .44-40 caliber cartridge compatibility being the sole exception (the 1860 version shot .44 Rimfire). Well, there’s another key difference: the modern Henry is less likely to see action than a certain gun blogger I could name. And OK, another one: price. A vintage Henry with pedigree can fetch a cool quarter mil. Henry will sell you a modern version for a mere $2300. Cheap at half the price.
