I held an engraved model a few weeks ago at a gun show. They sure are Beautiful!!!!!!!!!!! So is yours. I'm so glad it's a shooter and not a safe queen.

Absolutely stunning rifle. One day I would love to hang one on my saddle. Thanks for sharing.

Just looking through some old threads, and scrolled through this one.

I am super excited about the 45 Colt 1860 original rifle, and CANNOT WAIT to get my hands on one. What a beauty! I keep staring at it on the HRA website. I'm like Wayne from Wayne's World staring at the guitar in the shop..."oh yes, it will be mine." Way to go HRA!

And the wood stock on the H011 you showed us is simply beautiful.
Amen to that!

thanks for bumping up this thread, I've enjoyed reading through it again .... to me the The Original Henry Rifle series is beautiful .... I know the are built to use but for my use, I prefer other Henry models .... I've never owned a "wall hanger" rifle and don't anticipate ever doing so but that is what the Original series would be for me .... I'd really love to fire both the 44-40 and 45 Colt ....

Ranch Roper will get his before I get mine. Now that the .45 Colt is out, I think that would be my choice too. My problem is every time I get some funds saved up, something pops up that is more important. Good thing I'm learning patience.

I'm counting down the days until it's available in Canada. That will be my go-to rifle. I came close to ordering one instead of the Big Boy but the 44-40 stopped me due to ammo availability.
No butt cover on my 1860, just as is with that beautiful brass and wood sticking out of the scabbard. I can see it now. :)
Now THAT's an old west cowboy rifle.

You have three great Henry's, Dan. The pics are excellent, despite the weather - thanks for sharing them! :D
