Have to ask...when do we get it in 10mm?

It's remindful of the Winchester Self-Loading rifles (models 1905/1907/1910). Winchester Self-Loading rifles - Bing Images (These were not handgun-caliber.)

^^ "Reminiscent", maybe? And wasn't the Winchester what Hamer used (with, essentially, an intermediate cartridge) to shoot up Bonnie and Clyde's car in Louisiana?
I could stand a longer front end, but I still think this thing was meant for something more interesting like being chambered for EBR ammunition or maybe something like Winchester's Super Short cartridges. I'd suggest something like Remington's .30AR or a somehow-improved version of it if Henry really wanted to try something exotic.
He used a Remington Model 8 in .35 Remington and Barrow took one to the temple from either he or his deputy who was also using the same rifle and caliber.
A quick refresher just reminded me that Hamer also carried a 1911 on the ambush.... in .38 Super. .38 Super was the fashionable caliber of the day amongst gangsters (e.g. Dillinger) vs. .45 ACP as it had a reputation for defeating contemporary bullet proof vests.
I don't think anyone in the posse that day took any chances of being underpowered.
I do love it since I'm a Henry simp, but I have to ask myself...what does this do that a Ruger PC Carbine (for almost half the money) doesn't do?

I really liked the old ruger pc9 before they made the take down version. The newer take down styling never appealed to me. Too much tacticool. The Henry's classic look is appealing to me.
A lot of people seem to forget that sometimes some people own guns for fun.
