Our Assessment: As paraphrased from the Uberti website: “Tyler Henry of New Haven Arms Company designed the Model 1860 just in time for the Civil War. Only 1,700 of these repeating rifles were issued to Union troops, but the rifle’s reputation quickly grew. Southerners dubbed it “that tarnation Yankee rifle that they load on Sunday and shoot all week”. The Henry was also used in the fight at Little BigHorn. Unfortunately for Custer, all the Henry’s used were by Indians.” With its 24” barrel, this rifle holds 13 cartridges in the magazine and is great for those Cowboy Action team events where you have to split a log or knock down 50 targets. The .44-40 cartridge is great for black powder shooters since the bottleneck cartridge does a better job of sealing the chamber than straight wall cases like the .45LC. This example is from a run of just 1,000 deluxe engraved Original Henry Rifles. Fun though it would be to shoot, it may be better suited for the display case.
