I snagged this one NIB on GB back in November for $514 shipped.

Great little gun!

I gave it to my Brother for Christmas, but had to try it out and make sure it wasn't "broken"! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Can't wait to read the review farmer44mag!!!!!!

Do I assume correctly that you have a Henry H006 (.44 mag)? Sure would like to hear about it! I have an engraved .357 on layaway, but once that is paid for I have a bad itch for a .44 mag! :D

Hey!!! and how about some pics????? If you need help posting pics, let me know.

Best....2few

No- my screen name comes from my .44mag revolvers and my winchester 94 .44 mag. It is a name i started with my first forum i joined and have just kept the same name on all of them so it's not confusing.

I have a pic of my .22 big loop in the rimfire section- It's my only Henry till the .30-30 comes in. I am very excited about it. From what i have heard it should be an even better gun than my Marlin 336c.

Now how many companies will sell a 30-30 with wood that nice for only around $500? Only one I know of.

Great "field test"!!!!

Looking forward to your review too. It'll be interesting to see how the accuracy compares. The newer version on their site has a forend cap instead of a band. I know the Marlins made with the cap typically tend to be a little more accurate.

The Marlins have a longstanding reputation....heck....they had one when I bought my first deer rifle (Winny '94....that was in the early '70s).

Personally, I have never liked the Marlins. Not that they are "bad guns"....they are not. I just find them to be ugly as a $2 hooker. But that is just me.

I only fired 4 rounds through my Henry H009 before I gave it to my brother. 3 to check zero. 1 to kill a deer. It did it's job as well as any Winny or Marlin would have.

Your new Henry 30-30 is going to be one class act deerslayer!!!!

I won't say it is "better than this" or "better than that" but I can promise you it will kill you a boatload of deer! :D :D :D

You WHAT?!? :vscared: Err...you don't have it by now, do you? And you will post pics, right? Please? :bow: I've already planned to get the Golden Boy Deluxe V when it comes out (I figure I should have enough money for one by then :mrgreen: ).

I'm beginning to have doubts about your taste, 2few. ;) You love side-by-side shotguns, but think the Henry .30-30 looks better than Marlins? :scratchhead: Modern centerfire Marlins are the best-looking lever-actions ever made, as scores of people over on MO will tell you! :mrgreen:

Eh.....Personal taste.....some like blonds, some like brunettes. Personally, if we're just talking a wild and wooly good time....I prefer redheads with green eyes. Just be careful....they can be a little CRAZY!!!

I only know one green-eyed redhead, and I don't know her too well, but I think you may be right... :lol:

To each his own. I have never liked the Winny 94. Now, as to the Henry and Marlin, they are both great looking firearms. But, like women they do have different attributes. One is easier to load while the other is easier and safer to unload. My Henry H009 was cheaper to buy than a Marlin. Plus, I have seen a lot of negative remarks about the Remlins.

Holy Revive An Old Thread, Batman!

I read the beginning, and was curious about the low price for a NIB H009, the barrel band, and the lack of a soft recoil pad on the butt. Then I saw 2011. Aha. :)

I'd sure like an Xmas present like that.
