The iron-framed 1860 Henry rifle was manufactured in less than 400 units, but this Iron-Framed Original (actually steel-framed) makes it possible to acquire your own example of this short-lived piece of history. The Iron-Framed Henry Original is true to Henry's 1860 patterns and patents, and virtually identical aside from concessions necessary to adapt to the .44-40 centerfire rounds that replaced the long-obsolete rimfires. This rifle uses a thoroughly modern steel receiver with a striking color case hardened finish and a matching, period-correct, crescent buttplate. These are fitted with a one-piece blued steel octagonal barrel and magazine, fancy grade American Walnut stock, a classic folding ladder rear sight and blade front, traditional half-cock safety hammer notch, and no modernized manual safeties. The barrel is a full 24.5" with a 13-round capacity.
