Just Got a Henry X .45-70

Post by HC.Shen » Tue Jun 08, 2021 10:33 am

Hello everybody. Thank for having me. I've been wanting a lever action for years. Window shopped and searched online just to admire them. Finally took the plunge and got myself a Henry X .45-70. Can't wait to take it out to sight it in and add some personalization to it. :D

Good morning, Hello and Welcome aboard.
Congrats on the first levergun, nice that you chose a Henry.
Lot of 45-70 owners in here, not myself, but there are quite a few.

I rarely ever buy a rifle, but when I do, it's a Henry.

Welcome to the forum congrats on the 45-70. Im not as tough as ole Grunt so I dont own one anymore. Something about the back talk with them I dont agree with.

Welcome from Iowa. The Henry H010 in 45-70 was my first lever gun too. I've had a lot of fun with mine; part of the fun has been hanging around here.
