Read on another forum a guy claims Henrys original is made by Uberti and assembled here. Anyone know of this?

I doubt that, there is differences in the rifles side by side. I guess anything is possible though.

Just speculating but this person on the other forum COULD be getting his 'wires crossed' on the original (replica) Henry with the 'originals' that were made by an Italian company originally started by Val Forgett of Navy Arms.
Remember replicas were around long before HRA.
Again just a guess.

Made in America or not made at all.

No, NADA, I don't think so.

Besides owning one and it truly having the DNA of everything Henry Repeating Arms is it simply is nothing like what I have read as to how Uberti builds their rifles with regards to materials and workmanship. So even though my BB and Golden Boy cost less I could tell my Original Henry was made by the same manufacturer.

There's a YouTube video that compares The Original Henry to a Henry and a Uberti Henry and the differences would give you somewhat of an idea of what I am talking about. There's simply too many differences although they are both replicas of the same rifle which make this guys claim ridiculous.

This guy wont even budge off his comment. He still says parts are made by Uberti and the gun is assembled here. I asked him for proof of his claim but he hasnt provided any yet only here say. Now hes calling names. Easy to do with a keyboard in front of you.

Yep - don't feed the trolls!
I recently got 'sucked' into the same on a forum - different subject but a similar positioning by the OP so I just stopped replying.

As long as both rifles look good & are shooters, who cares? The guy needs to take a pill.

When I worked in the firearms industry Henry was just starting to sell .22's and the company I was with was working with Colt our Colt rep told me about the how Henry's owner got there start up funding. It was buy assembling all those second generation black powder series colt revolvers. Which were Uberti parts finished by Colt and assembled by Henry (Tony Imperito) One thing I learned about the industry is why waste your money on tooling and setting up heavy equipment when you can farm it out. When the Henry co started making "original" Henry's
it wasn't too hard to figure out. Henry plus Uberti equals "original" Henry. Yes the fit and finish is higher quality but its still coming from the same foundry.

Well. like I said, anything is possible. The Uberti 1885 High Wall I have coming has a match grade barrel made by Pedersoli according to info I have read. So it's quite possible that all these replica gun parts get around. Seems unlikely though, and how would anyone ever prove it unless the Mfgs come clean.

The other thing too: I very much doubt HRA would jeopardize their Made In America or Not Made at All brand slogan. They hang their hats on that one. Credibility would be toast.
