Ask and you shall receive! Though it may take a while. Henry has heard requests from its fans, sent in droves over the course of years — many years — and at NRAAM 2019 has heeded the call and released their Side Gate Lever Action rifle in three calibers.
Available in .30-30 Winchester, .38-55 Winchester, and .35 Remington, the Side Gate Lever Action has, you guessed it, a side loading gate. So much faster and more convenient than the removable tube magazine that Henry Rifles rifles have always featured.
That said, if you like your tube, you can keep your tube! The Side Gate Lever Actions retain the removable tube magazine so the rifles can be unloaded without having to chamber any rounds. Nice.
MSRP for all three calibers is $1,045.
