I want one. Probably my next firearm. Actually I was looking at the 45-70 Octagon.
An attempt to drive to the coast in the new Jeep even failed. After being stopped for several hours outside Merritt because of a traffic fatality, we were told we could wait several hours or head back to Kelowna. Doing that cost me another night in a hotel there and waking up to gale force winds and rain I called it and fought my way home. But not before picking myself up the Henry Big Boy in 44 cal. And I gotta say i am glad I did. This thing is a work of art. From its beautifully finished heavy octagonal barrel to its equally beautiful brass body and Walnut stock it's just an American company doing things right. Took her out to the range the next day and sighted in at 50 meters. 2" grouping and steady as a rock. The weight of the big gun really adds to its steadiness. Levering thru those 10 shells was slick and smooth. And the big surprise? About half the kick of a shotgun with a perfect out of the box trigger. Lovin it!
I have the .357 that I can also shoot .38. so I can take a couple handguns and boxes of the same ammo.http://www.az6guns.com/Henry-H006M-B...38-p/h006m.htm

I know it's a pee shooter but my .22 Henry lever is one of my favorites
Stepped down even farther. Got the Savage .17 WSM Bmag in heavy barrel stainless. Most fun of all my toys but the Big Boy may change that. Incredibly accurate at 200 M. but the problem is seeing the holes on target even with a spotting scope.
You wouldn't have that problem with the 45-70 and it will definitely reach out that far.
