Love this gun. Great finish, great workmanship. Very heavy barrell that makes shooting 357 mags with very light recoil and 38 special like your shooting 22lr. Its very accurate and built like a tank. But i do have a couple knocks IMHO. 1, 38 special seems to not eject as well as 357. You have to tilt while racheting the lever and even with that, it catches. I mainly use 38 special as it is cheaper and it\'s allowed in my club\'s pit areas to shoot steel and such. So little disappointing to find in my experience, as well read elsewhere, that this seems to be a common issue with this gun. 2, The magazine tube is a little stiff to open up. Although I aspect that to get easier over time. But it\'s the loading from the end that I don\'t love. If I was being honest, I would prefer a side gate loader vs the extended tube. But I decided on the henry based on quality and to have a gun that will last several generations. It really was Buds price that put me over the top for this purchade. And I think i got exactly what i wanted. I wish i could go 4.5 stars, but due the issues mentioned, I have to give it 4 vs 5 stars.

This Henry lever action is the smoothest, best fit and finish, well balanced, best looking, fun to shoot rifle imaginable. My old 1894 Winnie made in 1903 was historic but ............. The Henry Big Boy is my fav. A Skinner ghost ring replaced the stag horn rear sight and made these tired old eyes punch holes in the black. It is a beauty and pure fun to fondle and shoot.

Well, I'm an old guy that owns maybe 25 firearms between long guns and handguns. AND, in my opinion this is the absolutely coolest firearm I own. It's actually a piece of Art. I'm thinking about mounting this rifle in a case over my mantle. It's just that beautiful. Now lets forget the beauty and talk about the function. After zeroing in the iron sights the rifle shoots where I aim it at 50 yards. I haven't shot it as yet at a longer distance that 50 yards. There is absolutely no recoil using 357 ammo. I have not shot any 38 special in the rifle to date. The leaver action and tube feed need a little "getting used to". It feels a bit different than a gate fed 30 - 30. But I'm getting used to it. Great gun folks. Buds is way cheaper than anywhere else I could find one. If your into a nostalgic piece that shoots revolver ammo don't waist your money on the off brand rifles. Spring for the Extra couple of bucks and get one of these. They just scream QUALITY AND BEAUTY.

This Henry 357 rifle exceeds expectations. A Great Price from Buds, coupled with fast shipping was much appreciated. Very High quality, Beautifully Built and surprisingly accurate are all qualities of this Henry 357. Aguila 357 cal., 158 grain factory ammo, (also available from Buds), is extremely accurate in my Henry rifle. This Aguila round will shoot three shot groups, with all shots touching, at 50 yards. *Pretty good for a lever action rifle.... Thanks again Buds for a Great Henry Rifle. DW
