HENRY REPEATING ARMS – SIDE GATE 45-70 LEVER 4+1
Originally a military caliber developed for the battlefields of the 1870s, .45-70 Government has endured the test of time and still survives over a century and a half later in hunting lodges throughout the nation. When it comes to tossing a massive chunk of lead downrange, there is no nicer way to accomplish it than with a Henry.
Sufficiently punchy enough to stop any North American game, .45-70 began with a 405-grain lead bullet pushed with 70 grains of black powder. A longer 500-grain grain load was eventually added to enhance effective range, although the original lighter cartridge was preserved for use with cavalry carbines.
Since then, this caliber garnered significant commercial backing, and you can obtain everything from a high-velocity expanding 300-grain load to a 600-grain subsonic. The strong rimmed case feeds successfully from tube magazines, while mild chamber pressure assists extraction. Once available in every form of action, .45-70 suggested itself best in lever-action repeaters. The Henry Steel Lever Action .45-70 Side Gate is the most sophisticated specimen of its breed.
The H010G is pretty light at seven pounds for simple game stalking, and the vented rubber recoil cushion makes it comfortable on the shoulder. The matte-blued steel receiver and an 18.4″ round barrel are all-business, while magnificent checkered American walnut gives the traditional aesthetic appeal that we established our reputation on.
The pistol-grip buttstock and steel-capped forend come with sling swivel studs already fitted so that a sling may be utilized for stability and muzzle rise control. The side-loading gate facilitates reloading and topping out the four-shot tubular magazine fast and straightforwardly without affecting your sight picture. For rapid and safe emptying without cycling cartridges through the action, the rifle still maintains our classic front-loading option.
The adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sight and a brass-beaded front post sight work well for fast shots characteristic of hog hunts, but the drilled and tapped receiver provides simple scope attachment for deliberate longer-range aim. Handy and strong, this lever rifle provides fast follow-up shots on grizzly and accurate one-shot stops on whitetail deer with equal proficiency. The Steel Lever Action .45-70 Side Gate combines stopping power, precision, and dependability at an amazing price tag – all in a traditional appearance.
An Iconic Lever-Action Rifle That Loads Multiple Ways
Henry Repeating Arms has a rich name and history that is woven into each of the company’s traditional, lever-action designs. With its newest model, the business combines a traditional loading-gate design into its tube magazine-fed firearms, enabling customers to top up their rifles any way they desire.
The Henry Side Gate Lever Action Rifle, chambered in .45-70 Government, still utilizes the same detachable tube magazine seen in all of the company’s firearms. However, buyers will observe a spring-loaded gate on the side of the receiver that enables for simple loading like other vintage side-gate lever guns. Both loading techniques function perfectly well, so you may select whatever loading method works best for your scenario.
