New Henry Rifles
« on: May 07, 2016, 02:53:12 pm »
I was taking a look at the new Henry rifles and is it just me or does this look a lot like a BLR?

These look like a marlin 336 action shortened a bit to better accommodate the pistol caliber.
CaliforniaOf course I carry a gun!  It gives me a chance against the sinners and protection from the righteous.

    Yes, a number of the Henry Rifles  do look like they were inspired more by Marlins.
    The second one does resemble the BLR, but I'm not sure how far that resemblance goes.
    These seem to be front loaders,  so I don't know how closely they mimic Marlins.  They certainly do not mimic original Henry Rifles,  the ones that  got Winchester off  to a start in the 1860s.
    A lot of people like Henry's .22 rifles, and from what I've  heard, they have good customer service.

    I have 2 marlins (.357 & .45-70), a win 94 (.30WCF )and a Henry (357) and the Henry is the smoothest of the lot.  Granted. The win is around 98 years old but I doubt it was that smooth new.  Henrys are great rifles, if they'd go to a side loading gate instead of that damn tube load they'd be perfect.

They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes....Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
