It might be made in the US but I don't know that that alone would be enough.
I agree. To actually produce an authentic 1886 replica would require a very dedicated effort, high end CNC machining and very skilled assemblers.
Probably a better idea for Miroku if they were to ever consider it - and it would carry the Winchester name on it.

Somehow I find th fact that they do kind of cool, even if they also say made in Japan. But somehow regardless of the banner the fact that they overall seem to be really made well is what really appeals to me.

They are - I was on my way to my LGS to buy a Miroku 1873 only to discover it was SOLD (after looking at it for several months!)
The Henry showed up a short time later and at the time they were very hard to find (2013) so I took it.

Sorry to hear, but either way I don’t think you can go wrong.

No - I have no complaints with my Henry.
AND not that it would have been a huge deal but IF I had gotten the 1873 I could NOT have put a Williams receiver sight on it as the 1873 is not D & T for one.
I would have had to go with a tang sight which would have been OK.
In retrospect however I cannot put a Williams on my 1899 Mod 94 but it was bought for other reasons.

Sometimes things work out for the best. Personally I didn’t give much thought to that. Maybe I should have, but I didn’t.

Thanks I’ll have to keep this in mind. Not even sure at this point what all options I have and what if anything I may want to do.

Hey All,

If Henry doesn't like the 356/307 win then how about a 375 raptor - near a ton of energy at 400 yds. Kinda handy to have a rifle that can deal with either a these if you find em in your back yard... Both were taken with a 375 raptor.

You know just in case... Better to have it an not need it than to need it an not have it you know. :mrgreen:

Info From...

https://www.375raptor.com/faq/

Apparently you can get the right barrel for a takedown BLR so why not a purpose built Henry 375 raptor?

Henry has recently done a good thing in offering the side gate rifles with brass receivers and round barrels but I don't think they understand how they're missing out by not producing a matching coach gun. Since there is presently no US made side x sides offered, how could it miss? If they ever do come out with something I will be at the front of the line and will be quickly followed by numerous others just out of my local gun store alone. I pass this request on to them every so often in the hope that someone will realize where they're missing the boat.
