Henry's X Model chambered for the straight-wall .45-70 Gov't. cartridge provides a suppressor-ready experience second to none. Henry’s X Model is built around the company’s Big Boy platform and features a steel receiver with right-side loading gate. For added safety, a transfer-bar safety mechanism is utilized to prevent accidental discharge. A large-loop lever was added for enhanced function.

Users looking to suppress Henry’s X Model can do so via the provided 5/8X24 t.p.i. muzzle threads. A knurled metal ring is included for protection. Below the gun’s muzzle is another knurled fixture, which allows access to the magazine tube for loading and unloading. This particular model is outfitted with a 19.8” steel barrel. The barreled action is blued, and the barrel is fitted with adjustable sights and a provision for optics-mounting is included on the receiver.

Black-synthetic furniture fitted to the blued barreled action features a molded-in sling stud and M1913 Picatinny rail at the tip of the fore-end. Magpul’s M-LOK-pattern slots are provided here, too. The buttstock contains a molded-in sling stud and is capped in soft rubber.
