    Great. That should make a lot of hunters smile. I hope the trigger is sane, less than 5#. Wonder how long for they are avail;able..

    Side note- they changed their levers to side gate instead of front tube load

    If that .450 would have came out last year I may have bought that instead of RAR .450. Originally I was going to buy the CVA last year but, RAR wasn’t really that much more when it was all said and done

    I personally would still buy a RAR. The Henry just doesn’t do it aesthetically for me. Ruger Americans are great guns for the money.

    So what is it about the Henry single shot that is aesthetically non pleasing? Have you seen and handled the firearm?

    Only on YouTube. Actually the more I look at it I do actually like it. I guess it would come down to street price on the two and trigger.

    How is the trigger? Did you have any work done on it?
    From what I have read, the trigger seems to be the biggest complaint.

    I guess I was lucky. The trigger on my firearm is about 4 lbs. which I find manageable. However I will be returning it to Henry for the safety recall during which time they will be reworking the trigger.

    Read one review with two test guns. One had a 9 lb trigger the other almost a 7. Nope Ruger ranch for me or if I’m getting a ’y trigger it would be a 300 dollar cva.

    Dick Williams gun shop just posted that 3 of the .450 Henry single shots just arrived. They sure look pretty !!! I’m set on .450 now but, I’ve been mulling over buying a new gun just to shoot. Somthing cheap to reload and shoot per round $$$ wise. Somthing like a .223, 243, or similar. However, I’ve always wanted a 45-70
