Uberti 1860 Iron Frame Henry
« on: March 14, 2016, 09:14:58 PM »
Howdy

Here is my Uberti replica of the Iron Frame 1860 Henry. This rifle has been my usual Main Match CAS rifle for a number of years now. It is chambered for 44-40, and other than when it was proofed in Italy it has never had a Smokeless round put through it.








Here is a close up of the frame when it was brand-spanky new. The colors have faded a bit since then.





I did not care for the factory ladder sight that came on it, so I put on this buckhorn sight from Track of the Wolf. I would have used a Marbles sight, but the dovetail is too close to the frame for a Marbles sight.





One nice touch is the way Uberti duplicated the rounded top of the crescent buttplate that was typical of the Iron Framed Henry rifles. The standard brass framed models have a sharper point at the top.





There is nothing like blazing away full speed with a magazine full of Black Powder 44-40 loads.

That is an outstanding example! Thanks for sharing! How is the function & reliability in the CAS matches?

I got the same rifle. But mine says "1 of 1000" on top of the receiver. 44-40 also and BP only......Barrel sure do get warm!

If you look closely at the photo of me shooting my Henry you will see I have a glove on my left hand to keep from getting burned by the barrel.
