Henry 270 lever action

Henry 270 lever action DEFAULT

We’ve developed the Henry Long Ranger to stretch the envelope in a design that takes the hunt to the fur in popular calibers at longer distances. The Long Ranger retains traditional lever action operation with an exposed hammer and forged steel lever but updates it with a geared action. A machined and chromed steel bolt with a 6-lug rotary head is driven into a rear extension of the barrel for a strong and consistent lock-up from shot to shot to shot.

With side ejection and a lightweight aerospace alloy receiver, the top is drilled and tapped for scope mounts, and the bottom features a steel-bodied flush-fit detachable magazine (5-round capacity in , 4-round in ,, and Creedmoor) with a steel floorplate and a blackened steel release button on the right side of the receiver. All behind a 20” (or 22″ for the Creedmoor) round and blued free-floated sporter barrel, and supported by a two-piece oil-finished American Walnut stock with precise laser-cut checkering, sling swivel studs, and a solid black rubber recoil pad for both recoil control and non-slip anchoring on the shoulder for the rapid follow-up shots where lever actions excel. Like our other centerfires, the Long Ranger carries on the in-hammer sliding transfer bar as a safety, instead of a manual safety button or slider that can be hard to operate with gloves.

Accurate? You bet. This is the Best-In-Class lever gun that leaves many bolt actions in the dust. If you’ve ever passed up a lever in favor of a bolt because of accuracy doubts, then doubt no longer. We didn’t pick the Long Ranger name out of a hat; if you need a tight-shooter that’ll reach out there, this rifle delivers. From coyote to whitetail to bear, the new Long Ranger is a logical evolution in lever action technology as America’s contribution to classic firearms design, and it has you covered from hardwood forest to sagebrush flat in a trim, quick handling, and dependable 7-pound rifle you’ll be happy to reach for as you head out the door. We’ve upped our hunting ante, time for you to do the same?

Henry rifle

Lever-action rifle

The Henry repeating rifle is a lever-actiontubular magazinerifle famed both for its use at the Battle of the Little Bighorn and being the basis for the iconic Winchester rifle of the American Wild West.

Designed by Benjamin Tyler Henry in , the original Henry was a sixteen-shot caliberrimfire breech-loading lever-action rifle. It was introduced in the early s and produced through in the United States by the New Haven Arms Company. The Henry was adopted in small quantities by the Union in the Civil War, favored for its greater firepower than the standard-issue carbine. Many later found their way West, notably in the hands of a few of the Sioux and Cheyenne in their obliteration of Custer's U.S. Cavalry troops in June

Modern replicas are produced by A. Uberti Firearms and Henry Repeating Arms. A. Uberti Firearms manufactures near exact replicas of the Henry chambered in Winchester or Long Colt and Henry Repeating Arms produces modernized replicas chambered for a wide range of calibers.


The original Henry rifle was a sixteen-shot caliberrimfire breech-loading lever-action rifle, patented by Benjamin Tyler Henry in after three years of design work.[2] The Henry was an improved version of the earlier Volition, and later Volcanic. The Henry used copper (later brass) rimfire cartridges with a grain ( gram, ounce) bullet over 25 grains ( g, oz.) of black powder.

Only to rifles a month were initially produced.[citation needed] Nine hundred were manufactured between summer and October [citation needed] Production peaked at per month by ,[citation needed] bringing the total to 8,[3] By the time the run ended in , approximately 14, units had been manufactured.

For a Civil War soldier, owning a Henry rifle was a point of pride.[4] Just 1, of the standard rifles were purchased by the government during the Civil War.[5] The Commonwealth of Kentucky purchased a further However 6, to 7, saw use by the Union on the field through private purchases by soldiers who could afford it.[citation needed] The relative fragility of Henrys compared to Spencers hampered their official acceptance. Another weak point for the Henry was that it could not be equipped with a bayonet. Many infantry soldiers purchased Henrys with their reenlistment bounties of Most of these units were associated with Sherman's Western troops.

Civil War Henry rifle

When used correctly, the brass-receiver rifles had an exceptionally high rate of fire compared to any other weapon on the battlefield. Soldiers who saved their pay to buy one believed it would help save their lives. Since tactics had not been developed to take advantage of their firepower, Henrys were frequently used by scouts, skirmishers, flank guards, and raiding parties rather than in regular infantry formations. Confederate Colonel John Mosby, who became infamous for his sudden raids against advanced Union positions, when first encountering the Henry in battle called it "that damned Yankee rifle that can be loaded on Sunday and fired all week."[6] Since then that phrase became associated with the Henry rifle.[7] Those few Confederate troops who came into possession of captured Henry rifles had little way to resupply the ammunition it used, making its widespread use by Confederate forces impractical. The rifle was, however, known to have been used at least in part by some Confederate units in Louisiana, Texas, and Virginia, as well as the personal bodyguards of Confederate President Jefferson Davis.[8] According to firearms historian Herbert G. Houze, one man armed with a Henry rifle was the equivalent of 14 or 15 men equipped with single-shot guns.[6][dubious &#; discuss]

It is theorized that Henry's rifle was used in the January Uprising by Count Jan Kanty Dzialynski in the Battle of Pyzdry and First Battle of Ignacewo. In the memoirs from the epoch, it is reported that Dzialynski had used a 16 shot rifle in combat, but it is more likely that he had used a weapon of his own design.[9] Confirmed user of Henry's rifle in the January Uprising was Paul Garnier d'Aubin, officer of the French 23rd Infantry Regiment.

The Henry rifle used a caliber cartridge with 26 to 28 grains ( to &#;g) of black powder.[10] This gave it significantly lower muzzle velocity and energy than other repeaters of the era, such as the Spencer. The lever action, on the down-stroke, ejected the spent cartridge from the chamber and cocked the hammer. A spring in the magazine forced the next round into the follower; locking the lever back into position pushed the new cartridge into the chamber and closed the breech. As designed, the Henry lacked any form of safety. When not in use its hammer rested on the cartridge rim; any impact on the back of the exposed hammer could cause a chambered round to fire. If left cocked, it was in the firing position without a safety. Modern Henry replicas incorporate a safety mechanism, such as a transfer bar safety, so the gun will not fire if dropped or the hammer is released partially by accident.[11]

Magazine in loading position, three Henry Flat cartridges, compare with WCF round

To load the magazine, the shooter moves the cartridge-follower along the slot into the top portion of the magazine-tube and pivots it to the right to open the front-end of the magazine. He loads up to 15 cartridges one by one, he pivots the top portion back and releases the follower.


While never issued on a large scale, the Henry rifle demonstrated its advantages of rapid fire at close range several times in the Civil War and later during the wars between the United States and the Plains Indians. Examples include the successes of two Henry-armed Union regiments at the Battle of Franklin against large Confederate attacks, as well as the Henry-armed Sioux and Cheyenne's destruction of the 7th Cavalry at Little Big Horn.

Manufactured by the New Haven Arms Company, the Henry rifle evolved into the famous Winchester Model lever-action rifle. With the introduction of the new Model , the New Haven Arms Company was renamed the Winchester Repeating Arms Company.


Modern replica Henry rifle

The unrelated Henry Repeating Arms produces a modernized replica of the Model Henry Rifle with brass receiver and American walnut stock, but a modern steel barrel and internal components as well as a walnut forward stock.[12]

Uberti produces an almost exact copy Henry Model chambered in Winchester or Colt, rather than the original Henry rimfire. Distributed by several companies, these replicas are popular among Cowboy Action Shooters and Civil War reenactors, as well as competition shooters in the North-South Skirmish Association(N-SSA).[13][citation needed]

    When Henry Repeating Arms announced that they were adding today’s most popular selling rifle cartridge, the Creedmoor, to their line of Long Ranger lever-action rifles most people rejoiced. I say most because I also read a social media post on Henry’s Facebook page from someone who was appalled that Henry would “ruin” a long range cartridge like the Creedmoor by putting it in a short range lever-action rifle. 

    Let’s be clear, lever-action rifles don’t make long range cartridges toothless. Cartridges with slow bullets and bad aerodynamics take the long-range bite out of a cartridge and that’s always been true whether its shot from a bolt-action, a lever-action, or a semiautomatic rifle.

    In fact, Browning, Winchester, and Henry all made or make lever-action rifles uniquely engineered to maximize the slick-handling repeater rifle characteristics of a lever-action rifle with many of history’s greatest long-range flavors like the Winchester, Winchester, Remington, 7mm Remington Magnum, and the Winchester Magnum. Henry simply thought their long-range rifle ought to be chambered in the world most popular long-range cartridge. 

    But don’t take my word for it. “Who are we to tell the market they can’t have a CM lever gun,” said Thomas Kotz, Henry Repeating Arms. “I personally answer plus emails weekly and it was the top request for months leading up to their release. Purists would also scoff at a revolver, bolt action magnum, etc., yet they are accepted and enjoyed by those who own them.”

    Just for fun, let’s ignore the laws of physics of gravity, velocity, and mass which dictate a rifle cartridge’s long- or short-range ability. We’ll ignore the fact that the inch barrel Henry uses is just as long as most bolt-action rifle barrels. We’ll ignore the twist ratio which helps stabilize the sleek, ultra-high B.C. bullets the mm caliber gifts the Creedmoor case with, just like the “long range” bolt action rifles; and, we’ll overlook the fact that the engineers at Henry Repeating Arms were savvy enough to introduce the Creedmoor in a lever-action rifle which used a box-fed magazine and not a tubular magazine so “long range” spitzer boat tail bullets can be used. And, good gravy, don’t forget Henry calls this particular lever-action rifle, which by the way also is chambered in the once long range capable but now forever ruined Remington, Winchester, and Winchester, the Long Ranger, and it isn’t because they give you a mask and a hunting buddy named Tonto with every purchase. 

    My goodness, if our internet-based Creedmoor fan thinks his beloved long-range cartridge is handicapped in a lever-action rifle which has the same barrel length, twist rate, and box magazine feeding mechanics as most “long range” bolt-action rifles, just wait until the AR crowd figures out that the Creedmoor fits in their guns too. Some may even say it was designed for just such a platform. You know what they say about believing things you read on the internet …

    Lever henry action 270

    Updated 7/11/

    Of all the Henry rifles, these five are the top of the bunch.

    What Henry rifles do you need in your collection:

    Everybody Loves Henry

    Henry rifles… utter the phrase and even the most novice firearms enthusiast knows of what you speak. It’s brass and hardwood and lever-actions and a good dash of the old west. Tried and true performance and perhaps more fun than might be legally advisable.

    The New Jersey-based company has become legendary in a relatively short amount of time. Just a quarter century that’s all the gunmaker has been around. But in an industry that tends to measure longevity in half and full centuries, it’s a blink of an eye. And Henry’s success, in many respects, came against the odds.

    Historical Beginnings

    Always steeped in old-style firearms, Louis Imperato started the company as a manufacturer of replica black powder revolvers in Brooklyn, NY in Acquiring the rights to the Henry Repeating Arms brand name soon after with his son and long-time company president, Anthony, the company soul product was what is now known as the Classic Lever-Action Black powder and lever-actions, gutsy choices in the go-go s and right on target.

    Striking a nerve with the American shooting public, those humble roots blossomed into one of the country’s most substantial gun manufactures. Now, Henry Repeating Arms are made in two states (New Jersey and Wisconsin), has roughly , sq. ft. of manufacturing space and employs more than people. Furthermore, they turn out everything from rifles, shotguns even pistols (yes, the Mare’s Leg is considered a pistol) in lever-action, semi-auto, single-shot, even pump action. The gunmaker even dusted off the old Henry Rifle design in recent years, truly helping it live up to its name.

    The Five

    Impressive, still for many one thing will always come to mind when talking Henry and that’s Henry rifles. And like any Titan, the company has produced some must-have models over the years. So, without further ado, here’s a look at five Henry rifles no gun safe is truly complete without.

    All-Weather Lever-Action Government


    Chance meetings with coastal browns or big timber bull elk, you might not find better medicine than the  Government. Furthermore, it’s arguable Henry’s All-Weather Lever-Action is the ideal delivery system. Configured as a guide gun, the inch barreled rifle is nimble as they come allowing shooters to deliver to grains of heavy metal to a target in a snap. Though, with a more tactical bent, the Model X is also a solid choice, especially given it boasts a loading gate. Many will consider this a huge advantage. As to the All-Weather, a semi-buckhorn rear sight aids in its quick-handling, especially with a diamond insert that draws the eye intuitively to the notch, while also providing the capability of more precise work at distance. Furthermore, the rifle comes drilled and tapped, so adding a scope requires minimal effort.

    Some will have a bone to pick with the four-round lever-action, given metal components are hard-chrome plated, not stainless steel. Yet, the treatment, when done properly adds hardness to the surface of the metal components, reduces friction and proves as resistant, if not more so, than some stainless steel. A break from in looks from most Henry rifles, the furniture is dark – jet black, due to specially-treatment to the walnut meant to resist temperature, moisture and abuse. Some might like the idea of polymer better, but the hardwood isn’t a particularly bad option on the , giving the gun recoil-eating heft. MSRP: $1,

    Long Ranger Win.


    Users demanded it and Henry listened. A newish addition and a break in design from traditional Henry rifles, the Long Ranger has succeeded wildly in its charge. As its name suggests, the rifle aims to extend the range of Henry’s lever-actions, which forced the company to reevaluate how they’d tackle the platform. The receiver is longer, made of aluminum and features a six-lug rotating bolt, as well as a removable box magazine. The results are more than respectable, given the Long Ranger is capable of MOA performance with the benefit of lever-action speed.

    The nice part, Henry didn’t compromise in creating what is fast becoming a shooter favorite. Despite the modernization, the Long Ranger is completely American made and retains the attractive lines common to Henry rifles. To the latter point, the rifle’s straight grip, excellent walnut stock and sharp checkering (fore-end and grip) go a long way towards this end. Available with or without iron sights, in either case, the rifle comes drilled and tapped, so adding a scope is no fuss, no muss.

    To my mind, the mild recoiling, yet highly effective Win., would get plenty out of the inch barreled rifle and potentially makes it pure dynamite for anything from deer down to varmints. Yet there are no complaints about Creedmoor, Rem./ NATO and Win. options, which opens the rifles to nearly any application short of dangerous game. MSRP: $1,

    Golden Boy


    Might it be the finest LR to ever come down the pike? There’s certainly a case for it. Even if it didn’t happen to boil down the “Best,” there’s still no denying the Golden Boy is a hell of a fun gun to run. From Hollywood cowboy good looks to fast action, and of course accuracy, the brass-frame rimfire has and continues to mesmerize shooters of all ages. Why not? In practiced hands, the inch octagon barreled lever-action is nearly as fast as any semi-auto out there and, with rich walnut, is more attractive than most of that lot. Easy to see why the Golden Boy is among the most popular of all Henry rifles.

    Thing is, looks and tradition come at a cost, above and beyond dollars and cents. The rifle is heavy for a rimfire, a whisker under 7 pounds. This aspect could make it a bit cumbersome, especially in young hands, walking timber after squirrels or cottontails. And yes, there is a price – monetary this time – to get behind the Golden Boy’s business end; it runs nearly twice as much as most Ruger 10/ Then again, just look at it – you’re not getting cheated. A few of the other notable points on the rifle are a semi-buckhorn rear sight, tapped and drilled receiver (for scope) and a transfer-bar safety so the rifle is safe to carry with a round in the chamber. MSRP: $

    Raise Your Lever-Action IQ:

    Big Boy Classic Mag.


    Pistol-caliber long guns tend to raise some shooters’ hackles. But Henry’s Big Boy line of lever-actions smashes most of their objections. Chambered in a wide selection handgun magnums, the rifle is plenty powerful, in many cases substantially enhancing a cartridge’s ballistics compared to a revolver. How much more? In the neighborhood of to fps, when making the jump from a 4-inch barreled handgun to an inch barreled rifle. In the end, you’re left with a manageable firearm with the chops to defend your home and put meat on the table On top of that, with the Big Boy you’ll look good doing so.

    Of the nine models and seemingly endless variations, the Big Boy Classic has the most to offer in the aesthetics and flexibility departments. Though, the more tactically configured Big Boy Model X comes in a close second, given it conforms more to modern-shooters' wants and needs, such as a rail and loading gate. As far as the Classic goes, it's brass-frame (it is a Henry after all), rich walnut, semi-buckhorn rear sight and octagon blued steel barrel, the model is the epitome of the company’s gun-making ethos. Additionally, with five caliber choices ( Mag., Colt, Mag., Mag., and Fed Mag.) it’s fit to fill any role you demand of it. All of the options are solid, though, it seems a crime not to go whole hog with a Big Boy and chamber it Magnum. MSRP: $

    U.S. Survival AR-7


    The most practical of all Henry rifles, the AR-7 has lifesaving potential. Designed by Eugen Stoner as a survival gun and optimized to provide rugged performance no matter the circumstances, the semi-automatic stays at hand wherever you might venture.

    The bugger is only pounds and, when broken down and stowed in the buttstock, roughly inches in length. That compact, it’s ideal to stow in a rucksack for a deep backcountry trek or as an emergency gun in a boat, car or camper. Additionally, the AR-7’s weight, or lack thereof, means you can pack in more ammo – never a bad idea.

    Constructed of ABS plastic, foam filled, the stock gives the rifle a unique property – it floats. Or at least it does when broken down and stowed in the watertight stock. The inch barrel is steel covered with corrosion-resistant ABS plastic, which attaches to the receiver via a barrel nut. The receiver then slides directly into the stock and stays in place via a set screw. Assembly takes less than a minute. The blowback rimfire feeds off 8-round steel magazines and has a 3/8-inch accessory rail, so an optic is a possibility. Barebones, the semi-auto comes outfitted with a rear peep-aperture and front blade. Best of all, for the penny-wise prepper, the AR-7 comes nowhere close to breaking the bank. MSRP: $ (Black finish model)
