Henry added the detachable-box-fed Long Ranger to its otherwise tube-fed catalog of lever-action rifles and shotguns back in 2016, and this year the company has introduced a new, more compact and weather-resistant variant to the series—the Long Ranger Express—that boasts a number of upgraded features.

Designed to be the ultimate multi-purpose rifle, the Express is chambered to fire the ubiquitous .223 Rem. cartridge, five rounds of which are contained within its flush-fitting steel magazine. Henry has shortened the original rifle’s barrel from 20" to 16.5", while also adding 1/2x28 TPI threads for the installation of a suppressor or other muzzle device.

A 12-slot section of Picatinny rail has also been added to the top of the Long Ranger’s black-anodized aluminum receiver for the convenient mounting of an optic, and the standard rifle’s American walnut buttstock and fore-end have been replaced by durable and moisture-repellent laminated birch wood.

Rifleman Report: Industrial Innovations

Just when it seems the firearm industry has exhausted itself by way of striving to keep up with demand for existing models, it’s a pleasant surprise to learn that, behind the scenes, engineers and marketing folks have been working on new offerings that have either been created from whole cloth, are significantly revised or are unfamiliar to the American market.

Loading Bench: The Berger Juggernaut At 1,000 Yards

Although frequently used in 1,000-yard engagements, the .308 Winchester is often regarded as a “900-yard cartridge.” It gets this reputation because most bullets fired from .308 Win. rifles fall below the speed of sound slightly before they reach 1,000 yards.
