Being your personal "Purchasing Mentor", the answer is a resounding YES!

After scanning Gunbroker, maybe stainless is out cause all I've found is the newer models that have the push-button "safety." I don't think I like that, lever rifle don't need no stinking safety.

I may need a Winchester with the Large Loop lever, in 44mag. Blued will be OK.

I have a Henry Big Boy .44 Mag that I had purchased when they first appeared on the market, and I like it immensely. There are new models on the market, now. I am seeing many Henry rifles at the shows.

Nuthin' bad about Henry rifles....all made in the USA, faithful reproductions of the originals, and very well made with quality materials and very good craftsmanship. I'd be proud to own one.

This months American Rifleman Magazine has a very good feature article on these rifles. Assuming most reading this ARE NRA members and receive the magazine, if not you should be, no matter your feelings for the organization. They're one of a very few entities fighting for our 2A rights.

Good article; check it out.

(Disclaimer: I do not own a Henry rifle, mine are Winchesters and Marlins, but IF I was in the market, I'd take a serious lookie-see....)

I have a couple of Winchester '94s, a Marlin 336, a Henry Big Boy, a Henry Golden Boy .22LR, and a Henry .22LR pump rifle, a Savage Model 99E (1924) with the round counter for the rotary magazine, and they are fun to shoot.

I like the Mares Leg and the Big Boy Carbine. I like the large loop and must have wood stock.

I had purchased the large loop for the Big Boy, and the Golden Boy, when Henry first put them onto the market. The rifles are heavy, so I won't rechamber like the Duke. Also, I don't have a horse to ride for the total effect!

I don't know why but I like the large loop.

I don't have a horse either but I always wanted one like Trigger (Roy Rogers).
