I may finally have a Henry on the way

Post by FormerParatrooper » Tue Jan 24, 2023 8:27 pm

I have been looking high and low, in out of way gun stores across the US and trying to call in favors, but I think I have one finally. I wanted the 357 Carbine CCH but have a steel one ordered from guns com. I ordered there on Sunday night and got email Monday morning saying it was out of stock as I put in my payment. I have a confirmation email, so waiting to see what I get in the morning email.

The demand seems much greater than the supply.

Here is hoping.

I shoot the BBS 357. It is an awesome rifle. I love it. Hope yours comes through. Good luck.

Remember, it's not how many guns you have. It's how many bullets you have.

That will be a nice one if/when you get it. I bought one few years ago and the CCH was beautiful on it. Hope it all works out for you!

BTW anyone notice the high prices for current .45-70 lever rifles Henry and Marlin/Ruger....wow!

Nope, but then again the 45-70 has no alure for me.
As I have a pair of Marlin fo-fo-fo's, ;)
And I can do pretty much anything with those that can be done with the 45's.
With less lead, powder, and ah recoil. :shock: :lol:

It is now confirmed, there is a package from UPS going to the LGS with my name on it. Inside that box is a H012GMR.

Finally, the search was fun, aggravating and at times looked hopeless, I am glad to own one now.
