NRA Gun of the Week: Henry Repeating Arms H018-410 Lever-Action Shotgun

posted on July 1, 2017
From the company whose slogan is "Made in America, or not made at all" comes this new-for-2017 Henry Repeating Arms lever-action .410 shotgun. This shotgun was designed for small-game hunting or for when those times when a 12 or 20 gauge is just too much. The H018-410—one of two .410s Henry unveiled this year—is based on blued steel-framed .45-70 Lever Action, with five-shot tube-loading magazines chambered for 2.5” shells only, dark straight-grained American walnut furniture, pistol grip wrists, checkering fore and aft, sling swivel studs, and a good thick non-slip ventilated black rubber recoil pad at the rear. This model we are highlighting in this video, the Long version, features a 24″ round blued barrel, removable factory installed invector style full choke and large front brass bead, with no rear sight. It offers slightly longer practical ranges, along with additional choke options (sold separately). For more on why this shotgun is our NRA Gun of the Week, watch the video hosted by American Rifleman's Christopher Olsen.
