HENRY BLUED SINGLE SHOT – 308WIN


Time stands still for nobody, including Henry Repeating Arms. We’ve built our name and reputation on America’s favourite line of lever-action, and that’s what most of the firearms world thinks of when our name comes up. But we’ve felt for quite a while now, that there’s more we could be doing in the long gun market, and as you may have noticed with the introduction of the Long Ranger model for dedicated lever-action hunters, we’re doing it! The centerfire single-shot rifle has an extensive history among hunters looking for a dependable and accurate game-getter, without having to spend more than necessary for good quality and basic function, and for 2017 we’re introducing our brand new line of break-action one-shooters to carry on that history. Available with matte finish on steel frames, these elegantly simple rifles feature 22” round barrels, fully adjustable folding leaf rear sight and brass bead front sights we use on the lever actions, a drilled and tapped provision for optional scope use, walnut front and rear furniture, a curved pistol grip wrist and solid rubber recoil pad on the steel versions, a straight English wrist and brass butt plate on the brass rifles, and a non-ejecting case extractor.

These new rifles use a familiar locking lever on top of the frame, behind the external hammer spur, to break the barrel open. We’ve added our own touch here- the lever can be pivoted either left or right from its center position to unlock, which works well for both lefties and righties. The action has no external manual safety; it uses a rebounding hammer that can’t touch the firing pin unless the trigger’s deliberately pulled and an interlock system that doesn’t allow the barrel to open if the hammer’s cocked or the barrel to close if the hammer’s cocked while it’s open. Quick to load or unload, safe to carry, and simple to operate. These single-shot rifles are aimed at the challenge of hunting with only one round on board, and hunters prefer the design’s uncomplicated durability. Make no mistake, though – while some might consider a single-shot an entry-level proposition, we build these to the same high standards as all of our fine centerfire rifles and not to be a budget model in any sense of the word. Born to hunt, we expect you to work this gun, and work it hard.

Henry

In every field of human endeavour there is a select group of individuals who are given credit for making such major contributions that they become synonymous with their achievements. In the area of firearms development, one name that must be included on that honoured roster is Benjamin Tyler Henry. His invention: The Henry Rifle.It was Mr Henry who conceived the first practical, lever-action repeating rifle patented in 1860. The Henry gave a single man the firepower of a dozen marksmen armed with muzzle-loading muskets.America was engulfed in the searing flames of the Civil War, and the first Henry rifles were in the hands of Union soldiers by mid-1862. Due to its revolutionary design and rapid rate of fire, the Henry quickly found popularity both with the military and civilian purchasers. Early sales were especially brisk in Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri and Indiana.
