Considering purchase of Henry 410 lever shotgun Login/Join

Just wanting to add to the collection. I already own a Henry Golden Boy lever in 22lr. Very happy with that gun. Any thoughts here? The reviews seem to be mixed so far. Thanks

Don't know about Henry, but my brother has the Marlin in stainless with laminate stock.

It's a beautiful and unique firearm.

And it doesn't work worth a shit. Something about the flat-nosed nature of shotgun shells in that type of layout. Just doesn't work out like you might think. I'd try to find some .410 snap caps or dummy rounds and test it if the store will allow.

My brother wishes he had.

I have two. Other than you can't get choke tubes in the shorter barrel I find them well built and reliable for what they are. Can't use 3" if that matters. Unloading is a PIA. Other than that what's not to love.

These are fairly rare and desirable; even if the reliability is questionable, he could sell it for a pretty large chunk of change. Someone who knows Marlins could get it running also. A shame to just leave it parked.

The rare and desirable part is why he's leaving it parked. Wink

And the function makes sure it doesn't get too much wear. Big Grin
