Henry All-Weather Lever Action - .45-70 - H010AW:
Henry does produce, hands down, some of the best-looking lever action rifles on the market. As a part of their aggressive expansion into the more utilitarian side of life with newer steel centerfires meant for everyday life in the truck, on the farm, and through the woods, in 2016 they introduced the hard-working All-Weather H010AW in .45-70.

In profile and general dimensions, this Henry is essentially the same as its blued steel counterparts, with 18.43 inch round barrel with 4-shot magazine in the .45-70, and the same adjustable buckhorn/bead sights. Like the blued rifles, the All-Weather also wear the same
pistol grip wrist profile. This model is the first time Henry has used hard chrome plating on all metal surfaces (except springs and sights), and a durable industrial-grade coating on hardwood furniture. In a tough world where a working rifle might be rode hard and put away wet, this is the finish you want on it. A very strong plating permanently bonded to the steel underneath, hard chrome does not flake, chip, or peel, and its corrosion resistance is actually stronger than some stainless steels. The treatment Henry uses increases surface hardness, reduces friction on moving parts, resists scuffs or scratches, and leaves a low-gloss look that wont spook game.

The furniture is another departure for Henry. Henry has gained its reputation for their select American walnut over the years, but here they have opted for a stained hardwood with a carefully-selected coating that is formulated to stand up to wear, tear, scratches, moisture, temperature variations, and the angst of the various character marks an everyday outdoor tool inevitably picks up during its lifetime.

Bullet Caliber Descriptions

.45-70 Government

The .45-70 rifle cartridge, also known as .45-70 Government, was developed at the U.S. Armys Springfield Armory for use in the Springfield Model 1873. The new cartridge was a replacement for the stop-gap .50-70 Government cartridge which had been adopted in 1866, one year after the end of the American Civil War. As is usual with U.S. military ammunition, the .45-70 was an immediate hit among American sportsmen, and the .45-70 has survived to the present day. Today, the traditional 405-grain (26.2 g) load is considered adequate for any North American big game within its range limitations, including the great bears, and it does not destroy edible meat on smaller animals such as deer due to the bullet's low velocity. It is very good for big-game hunting in brush or heavy timber where the range is usually short. The .45-70, when loaded with the proper bullets at appropriate velocities, has been used to hunt the African Big Five. The .45-70 has been loaded and used to harvest everything from birds to elephant and the cartridge is still undergoing new development work well over a century after its introduction..


Suggested Use

  • Deer
  • Big Bear
  • Sheep / Goat
  • Moose
  • Elk
  • Buffalo / Bison
  • Dangerous Predators
  • Anything that can legally be hunted


Performance

The trajectory of the bullets is very steep, which makes for a very short point-blank range. This was not a significant problem at the time of introduction, as the .45-70 was a fairly flat-shooting cartridge for its time. Shooters of these early cartridges had to be keen judges of distance, wind and trajectory to make long shots.

Even the shortest barrel, 14 inches, is easily capable of producing well over 2,000 ft-lb (2,700 J) of energy, double the power of most .44 Magnum loadings
