Editors’ Picks 2018: Henry Single Shot Rifle

posted on April 30, 2018

Henry has brought back one of the simplest ideas in long arms with its line of Single Shot Rifles. Models are available with matte-finish steel frames chambered in .223 Rem., 243 Win., .308 Win., .44 Mag. and .45-70 Gov’t, and in high-polish brass frames chambered in .44 Mag. and .45-70 Gov’t. Barrels measure 22" and feature fully adjustable folding-leaf rear and brass-bead front sights and are drilled and tapped for optional scope use. Walnut furniture complements the curved pistol grip wrist and solid rubber recoil pad on steel models and the straight English wrist and brass buttplate on brass models. The non-ejecting extractor and top lever, which can be pressed left or right to open the action, make for simple operation. Safety is by way of an external hammer spur, a rebounding hammer that can’t contact the firing pin unless the trigger is deliberately pulled, and an interlock system that prevents the barrel from opening if the hammer is cocked or closing if the hammer is cocked while the action is open. henryusa.com
