But I really like Henry's quality right out of the box, and now that they’re offering models with a side-loading gate.....
Side loading Henry?! NOW you have my attention! :cool: (Their whole tube-loading contraption was a non-starter for me)

I'm waiting for them to come out with a blued-receiver version. I'm not much on the shiny brass look. I guess it's attractive, but it is not very utilitarian. I think that reflections from the shiny brass finish could alert game to your presence. Hence my preference for a blued version. But, they are available in .30-30 Win, .38-55 Win, and .35 Rem - all of which are useful calibers, even if the .38-55 isn't as easy to find as the .30-30 and .35 Rem.

I have a friend that has the brass receiver and has been hunting for years without scaring any game away. They shoot very well and are very smooth.

The only thing my brass receiver Big Boy .44magnum has scared off is a couple of my daughter's boyfriends. :cool:

I already own a Henry Octagon Frontier .22, and it’s a fine little rifle; so,I’ve no doubt that the .30-30 is too. But I just prefer the look of a blued receiver. I’ve already asked Henry if they plan to come out with a variant like that. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s asked. They told me that if enough people ask for it, they’ll offer one because it won’t make sense not to. Then maybe I’ll pick one up and sell my336BL.... or not. I have multiple ARs, so,why not multiple .30-30 lever actions? :mrgreen:

It's all good! I'm enjoying following along. I had a .45-70 rifle when I was a kid. A springfield Mod. 1873 musket. Loved to go shoot it. A hard hitter to be sure.
