Henry announced today, they will be making 32 models of their rifles with side loading gates now.
The rifles will still have the magazine tubes also
Great news for those of you who resisted buying the ones without the loading gate.

I have two Henry’s in .22lr and love them.

I wanted a Big Boy in .357 but didn’t buy because they lacked the side gate. I bought a Rossi 92 instead. Now it looks like I’ll be in the market for a new Henry in .357.

I have a 22 Frontier model, a 22 Goldenboy, a Big boy CCH 44 Magnum, and a Big Boy brass in 44 magnum. Fantastic rifles.
I intend to buy a Big Boy Steel in 41 Magnum, but will be waiting to find one with the new side loading gate.
Curious to see how long it will take for the new versions to become readily available.

Apparently it might be late ‘21 or 2022 before some calibers are available.
Anyone hear differently I hope?
Looking at the all weather in 357

I havent heard any timeline yet, but very happy they are going with the side gate. Maybe it will lower prices on the non gate models
I still want one in 41 Magnum

Great news for those of you who resisted buying the ones without the loading gate.

The side loading gate always had the removable front loading tube as the original design. Henry has good customer service, they will fix, replace or refund the original customer his money if not satisfied with their product. Competition will be fierce in the Leveraction market with Ruger acquiring Marlin.

Yes, but they are importers. I personally have several Taylor, Cimarron, Navy arms Replicas. I believe all of my rifles from them are Uberti made replicas. I feel my Henry Rifles are a better quality. Again, I own both, so that is only my opinion. Worth exactly what ya paid for it. Lol

Have they improved their triggers at al?  I've had several Henry rifles and all came from the factory with heavy, gritty triggers which Henry will not correct for "insurance purposes".

Centerfire ?   (Both of our Henry .22s are light and crisp.)

Noticed on the Henry website, the side gate rifles are not listed in 41 magnum or 327 magnum.
Hmmmm

My henry 22LR has a decent trigger from the factory.

My Rossi has a better trigger with a shim and after break in.

I found marlin triggers to be rough...at least the modern ones. Hopefully, after the new ownership, they will make good triggers again.
