Side by side coach gun

Postby JCN » Tue Feb 13, 2018 12:57 am

When HRA announced the single shot shotguns last yeah I thought they were really cool. Only downside is they have just one shot!! I thought for sure the next step would be to announce a side by side coach style shotgun like the Stoeger models. After a year of waiting we still have only the single shots. Come on Henry.... let's get two barrels and two triggers on your shotguns!

Speaking of shotguns, I can't find a single shot in the wild yet. I may give in and pick up a 20 gauge single shot for the fun of it. None available yet!

Speaking of 20 gauge single shots,there's an Iver Johnson Champion 20 gauge single shot at a local gunshop. Hidden in a corner with my name on it! Just have to find a way to sneak it into the house! :lol:

I have an exposed hammer coach gun I finally added to my collection. This one was made sometime in the late 1800s...
A Husqvarna. Yup, same company that makes chainsaws these days. :o They were gunmakers back in the day, and even made highly engraved inlaid presentation pieces. Mine can still be fired, although I hang it in the wall over my desk in the home office.

I have the Stoeger Coach shotgun. Of the three shot guns, this is my favorite. My son took it to the range. After a little intro, I told him that it was best not to shoot both barrels at the same time until he was comfortable with the firing one at a time. As a true 30 something of age, the temptation was too great and then... You guested it. Took him a few days, but he was asking again to go to the range with the Stoeger. I would be interested in a Henry Coach gun also.

if they were to announce a 12 ga Henry, external hammer, Coach Gun would be one I'd instantly place an order for

I received a stoeger coach from the wife as a get well from the wife after one of the surgeries. She got the top grade with the nicer stock and two tone receiver and barrels. I like it a lot. :) I would be in line for a Henry Coach, especially if it was hammered, with cch finished receiver.

I am almost surprise Henry doesn't have one, but you know what guys?

One thread we criticize Henry for not making some model we want, and the next thread we're criticizing them for over extending themselves :roll: :D

For a decent, low-cost double I bought a Baikal (Russian) 12 gauge. The hammer springs were so heavy the barrels couldn't drop fully open and had to be held down (open) for loading.
After a little online searching I got a couple of 1911 long slide recoil springs and put them in. I found out the passageways they operate in were too rough (thus the heavy OEM springs) and needed a few hours of polishing.
Now it has the action of a nice Browning at the price point of a Rooskie double! I think I gave $330 for it in 2003 or so.
The gun has nice wood, beautiful bluing and the barrels are regulated perfectly. A fine shooter at a bargain price.
Henry would have a hard time meeting the price point of the Rooskie guns. But, with their following they could still sell a bunch, especially if they have functional external hammers. Cowboy action guys would buy em, I bet.

I feel the same way but I'd prefer 20 gauge.

At some point they will make it, I have faith!
