Henry Repeating Arms is now offering its first ever .410-bore lever-action shotguns. Taking their design cues from the company’s sturdy .45-70 Gov’t rifles, the initial models will include a choice of 20" or 24" round barrels. The longer barrel arrives with a full choke and brass bead front sight, while the shorter barrel has a cylinder bore choke and a fully adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sight. Both models will be chambered for 21/2" .410 bore shells only, with a magazine capacity of five rounds. Other features include blued steel receivers, checkered American walnut stocks and rubber recoil pads. henryrifles.com
