Anyone who actually sees/handles one wouldn't say they are clones.

If the fit and finish is much better than on a Handi, and the barrel lug allows them to be swapped onto Handis, that's good news for us.

When I saw the topic "New Savage Single Shot" I was hoping for a new m-219 which I always felt was a much sweeter rifle than the rather clunky H&R.

The story of David & Goliath only demonstrates the superiority of ballistic projectiles over hand weapons, poor old Goliath never had a chance.

I still own a Savage 219 with 30-30 and 12 ga. barrels. It is by far a nicer rifle than the handis which I still own more than a dozen of.
If Henry gets around to offering a few more calibers and gets there production up to the demand they are the new affordable single shot.

Wow....I have seen the new henry's for sale just under 400 bucks for a single shot. not exactly what I consider affordable for a single shot shotgun.

Years ago when H&R offered the Buffalo Classic , 38-55 Target, 45 Colt Carbine that had real walnut stocks they were as much or more than a Henry costs now.
Try finding a NEW single shot break action rifle with real checkered walnut stocks and a real warranty for less than what Henry is charging even if it is imported and I think you will find slim Pickins.

I know there were some handis around on clearance for really low prices when they were discontinued but there gone now and they were mostly all black plastic stocked guns. Many bought them up to part them out at a good profit or resell but they don't compare to the new Henry.

I don't even own a Henry single shot , but do own more than a dozen handis and have owned over 40 in the past.
I like the ones I still own !

Edit, Sorry I did not see that singleaction was referring to a shotgun, there are more inexpensive options for shotguns.
