My dealer was impressed.
He was the one who took the picture.

There were several other people in the shop at the time, and ALL heads turned when I opened the box.
My eye was first drawn to the stock.
I'm here to tell you, cell phone pics don't do this gun justice.
It's very subtle, but you can barely make out the wood grain just below the surface. It really does look like aged ivory.

The checkering is very sharp and crisp. The receiver finish could be used as a survival mirror in an emergency.
The first comment from my brother was about how slick and smooth the action felt.
I just had to grin at that.

My plans? I'm going to shoot it.
I was torn over leaving it new in the box, but I have a thing about useless tools. If I have no use for them, I have no use for them.

I plan on introducing it to my local range tomorrow.
Looking forward to turning a few more heads, and punching some holes in paper.

I'll give a range update when appropriate.

Thank you again to the entire Henry Rifle forums community.

Glad to hear you are going to shoot it... That is one of the reasons i rarely buy true collectables. I use things too. :D

well understood on the useless tools and I couldn't agree more .... but then, I've never owned a rifle built to that level of finish .... really looking forward to your coming reports
