As pointed out to me by Mr. Free Market, this new rifle from Henry (SHOT Show video) has me a little twitchy (in its most positive sense):
Most interesting is that they can handle both Henry magazines and Glock ones as well (with a mag converter) — although like most Henry rifles, it’s going to be kinda spendy (just under a grand MSRP).
I love the concept of “ranch” rifles: handy short-barreled little things that increase the power of pistol cartridges with a longer barrel, and this one in no exception, especially as it resembles a Winchester 1907, has a wood stock and not that black plastic rubbish. (I loved the Marlin Camp carbine for all those reasons, but it just wasn’t robust enough — the Henry, though, looks like a different proposition altogether.)
If Henry ever produces one chambered in .45 ACP that accepts 1911 mags, I’ll sell one of my other rifles to get one. And that’s a promise.
