Henry Repeating Original Rare Carbine 44-40 Brass Receiver 20" Barrel H011R

Out of Stock


In the late 1850s, metallic cartridges were the coming wave of firearms technology, and besides the difficulties inherent to developing reliable and effective self-contained rounds the new ammunition demanded equally new gun designs capable of taking full advantage of what the quick-loading cartridge offered. Cartridges that revolutionized a field of slow-loading, slow-firing, and slow-reloading powder & ball single-shots freed designers to create a rifle that could keep up, and the very talented Benjamin Tyler Henry quickly stepped to the front in both areas. The result was the legendary repeating rifle that became known as the 1860 Henry, in .44 Henry Rimfire.

In the days when the average soldier was expected to be able to fire up to three rounds per minute through his muzzle-loading Springfield rifle, a small unit armed with Henry rifles could provide the firepower of an entire company. That ground-breaking lever action rifle design was the foundation for a uniquely American class of long guns that’s still with us today, over 155 years later.

Though the design may have been groundbreaking in the 1860’s there’s always room for improvement, which led us to design a lighter, more compact rifle that still stays true to the original design that is steeped in firearms history.

The Original Henry Rifle Rare Carbine is a new take on an historic design, made entirely on US soil, just as B. T. Henry’s rifles were. We developed further on our rendition of the 1860 patterns and patents and came up with this package that would have been welcomed by any Civil War soldier. The H011R uses a specially-formulated hardened brass receiver with the same tensile strength as steel which is fitted with a one-piece octagonal barrel and magazine, fancy grade American Walnut stocks, a classic folding ladder rear sight and blade front, traditional half-cock safety hammer notch, and no modernized manual safeties. We shaved off 4 inches of barrel length with the 20.5” barrel and that reduces weight by over half a pound. The integrated tube magazine has a capacity of 10 rounds of .44-40.

Outstanding! Wanted one for years and with the "crisis" didn't think I'd find one. GunPrime is the BEST

Originals are by far the best. Smooth action, easy loading and precision firing. Hefty but to be expected. Single cartridge for both Pistol and Rifle makes it easier in the long run.
