I like the fact that they have both options on the same gun. Load unhurriedly, or unload, with the tube port...but have the option of slipping a top-up into the gate quietly and discreetly if needed. Nice.

I bought a new Henry 30-30. If I had some patience I would’ve waited on the side gates to come out in something other than brass. The brass looks good but dang it gets scratches on it so easy. I’m tired of worrying about it. I mean how in the world does it scratch so easily? I take care of my guns but that brass...you can wipe it with a brand new polishing cloth and voila!! Scratches and swirls

I own three Henrys, but not one with a brass receiver. I also did not stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. That said, when I was in flight school a hundred or so years ago we had to make everything SHINED. The bottom of our shaving cream cans, the inside of the lid to our shoe polish cans and of course, our brass, always on display. We also were tasked to polish the brass metalwork in the barracks such as the door handles. We did all of that with a product called "Brasso" that came in a small (8 ounce?) can. If it was me, I'd find me some Brasso, try it and then cover the polished brass with a good wax product (not polish). I'd use one of the newer ceramic waxes. The new synthetic spray waxes are quite mild and I have used them with great success on my rifles that expected to see wet weather.
