    Anybody know when to find a new one? Put my name on a couple list, been waiting 9 months so far. Can't believe they are that hard to find...

    Contact Anthony Imperata at Henry.
    Tell him you are having problems locating this particular gun.
    I did this when they first released the Big Boys in .327 fed/mag.
    They drop-shipped a rifle from the factory to my FFL, bypassing the distributor all together.
    I ended up with serial number 0000115.

    Worth a try.

    I snagged one last week at Rural King in Avon. It hadn't been out long enough to be priced. It was an impulse grab as I have wanted one like you and haven't seen them anywhere. They're still trickling out in ones and twos.

    If you want one bad enough… They are usually pretty fair on pricing but this is crazy?

    ^^^^^^This, I was looking for one of their carbines some years ago with a heart breaking backstory I dropped an email to Henry directly, explaining the situation and circumstances. The next day I received an email from Mr. Imperata with a heartfelt response , and request for my ffl information.

    I can not say enough about their company or his genuine caring and compassion.

    Yeah I am a customer for life.

    Pre Covid they were $950-1050. Boy they really shot up. Pun intended.

    When the new Ruger made Marlins first came out, Cheaper Than Dirt had one advertised for ONLY $3995.00 but they were in stock!

    I checked the lgs in my area they don't even have a lever-action 45/70. Said they haven't seen any available for a long time.
