LI Ammo is Long Island's premier Henry Gold dealer, if you need a Henry (or other guns and lots of ammo and other cool stuff) be sure to check them out!

Cool gun. Hope it works out for you. I only buy pre-Remington JM Stamped Marlins now (own several from the 80s).
The 1985SBL is a beauty but I've seen some horrible QC on Remlins from metal burrs on the finish to extraction issues. The thing with Henry is their legendary customer service. LI Ammo talked directly to the owner of the company and he sent these guns from the factory. If there is a problem I know they'll make it right. Can't say that about Marlin anymore since they were bought out by Remington (The Freedom Group holding company which is strictly corporate) and got rid of all their old gunsmiths, but that doesn't mean you didn't get a good one. Enjoy.

Henry has excellent service, the owner has replaced rifles that are sent back for warranty issues and even refunded money if they couldn't meet the customers expectations.

Very nice! I have been craving a 45/70 Lever Gun lately. I am leaning towards the Marlin 1895sbl.

BTW, to those who don't know, 45/70 is the Destro equivalent of 22LR. :)

i love Henry and have a Goldenboy. But, I don't really like the idea of putting by hand up by the muzzle to put the follower back into a rifle with 45/70 rounds. Put a side loading gate on a Henry and I would buy it in a second.

The Henry is a great range gun. I don't like that design for hunting or self defense.

I haven't hunted yet, but I think it would be better for hunting than the range, as you wouldn't need to reload while hunting. At the range, I would be loading the rifle more often. I don't like the idea of sticking my hand up there, near or in front of the muzzle. While, I would on one level "know" there is nothing in the chamber, Rule 1 says ALL guns are loaded. it just seems like a violation of Rules 1 and 2, and I don't want to lose my mortal fear of muzzling anything I am not prepared to destroy, nor do I ever want to think of any rifle as "not loaded". Very bad and dangerous habit IMO.

I agree it is not great for self defense, with the 4 round capacity and slow and awkward loading method.

LOL are we really discussing a 45-70 govt guide gun in terms of self defense? You have Buffalo breaking into your house?

I prefer .416 Rigby for my go-to HD gun. Just in case there's a coked up elephant on the other side of the door. :P

The reason it's a common guide gun is that it's relatively compact and light yet can drop a grizzly with one shot (so 4+1 is perfectly normal for a guide gun in this sizable a calbier). The guide only needs--or has--one shot if his hunters miss and they get in a pickle with an 8 ft brown bear bearing down on them.

LOL! I didn't bring up HD, but yes a 45/70 might be just a bit of overkill, unless you were the intruder. :)

The loading method would still be an issue in other, more HD conducive calibers, like .357/38 or 44 mag., though those hold 10+1 making it a bit less of an issue.

I agree that it makes a great guide gun and good hunting rifle. I just don't want to keep putting my hand by the muzzle, when I load it repeatedly at the range. That said, I will probably end up buying some sort of Henry centerfire lever gun at some point.

It is a bit awkward at first, but it becomes second nature after a while. As far as a safety issue, there isnt really one. Without a round in the chamber, nothing there to go bang.

I totally get what you are saying, but again, I don't ever want to start thinking "There's nothing in the chamber". I don't want to muzzle my hand especially at a range where I have been loading and firing. What if I didn't' realize I had one in the chamber?

As I said, I will probably buy one someday, but it would be so much better, IMHO, if Henry would start selling rifles with side loading gates. It is a far superior technology, and would make the choice pretty much a no-brainer over Marlin and Rossi.. I know they have tried to be more true to the design of the original Henry Rifles, but with the exception of the Henry Original Rifle they started making a few years ago, they were never really that close in design to the original ones.

Plus, they are now making these non-traditional (and great looking) All Weather models and are even making Long Ranger lever guns with detachable magazines that shoot .223, .243 and .308. If they can break that far from tradition, why not make some with side loading gates?

Beautiful rifle congrats and enjoy. If I were to purchase a new lever action today it would be a Henry. I own five JM marlins form 1990 to 2007 and would not consider purchasing a Remington produced lever action after seeing years of bad products being produced.
