When I first saw this on the website, it was out of stock, then apparently Buds got 30 in and they were gone in 10 days. Mine arrived in under 5 days at my FFL and when I checked the manufacture date, it was only 10 days old! Henry always test fires their rifles before shipping - mine needed a couple of patches run down the barrel but no harm no foul. You do need to know that tubular magazines don't like .357 wad cutter or semi wad cutter rounds. The manufacturer also warns about using aluminum casings which I verified with CCI Blazer. Blazer aluminum stacked in tubes under recoil can experience bullet set-back which can result in higher pressure, "which is never a good thing" according to Austin at CCI/Speer. That said, this is a terrific rifle. The plus for me is that I can use most of my existing stock of .357 magnum / .38 special and reserve the other stuff for my revolver. RNL, SJSP, SJHP, XTP, etc. The action is smooth and reliable. The balance is perfect and one fan is working on a speedloader. I would suspect that you could just buy a couple of extra magazines if you expect to be in a hurry. If 10+1 won't do the job, you're in over your head. This is great product and a great price.

Please get yours while you can. Buds recieved 30+ rifles on 03/23/12 and by 03/28/12 they were sold out. I order my on Friday, Shipped Monday, arrived at my FFL on Wednesday. Haven't shot the rifle yet but my first impression was WOW. Great looking rifle. Maybe the 44mag is my next one. 5 starts * * * * * for BudsGunShop. Thank you guys, keep up the good work

This is a beautiful firearm. Like all Henry rifles, it does not disappoint from the minute you open the box. I had two or three mis-feeds on the first day at the range, but I'm chalking that up to not being aggressive enough with the lever action. Most sweet rifle.

i initially purchased this firearm then they told me they did not have them in stock. They canceled the order but still took the money, then three days later the rifle appeared available again! Well because buds has a decent price i bought the firearm from them but i am having a horrible experience with buds. As far as the firearm is concerned IT IS GREAT! beautifully made and is definitely an heirloom for generations to come GOOD JOB HENRY! As far as buds is concerned not happy at all...

Wow what a beautiful gun. Never purchased online and Buds Guns made the transaction pain free. The guns action is smooth and very fast, and the expected high quality you get from Henry. Thanks to you and will do business again as soon as some other firearms become available from my wish list.

Got to shoot the Henry with my son and grandson this week. It was awesome. We took 4 guns to the range and the Henry was the only one that took 1 click on the rear sight to hit dead center at 50 yards with iron sights. We put over 100 rounds thru her without a hint of a problem. The 38 special round was sweet, and the 357 let you know it was there.. Even with the heavy barrel. Great gun, fun to shoot. The rifle was the hit of the 5 or 6 lanes next to us. I am hoping Santa brings us a 44 Mag next year. Thanks again to the Elves at Buds, they do a remarkable job. Thanks to Henry Repeating Arms for building a great American made product.
