New Henry 30-30 rifle for 2008 !!!!!!!!!!!!

Checked out the Henry website today, They have a VERY NICE!!!! 30-30 LEVER ACTION RIFLE COMING OUT FOR JANUARY 2008!!!

The wood on the brass receiver model looks to be a high grade Walnut as opposed to the plain Walnut on the steel receiver model.

I hope it's lighter, slimmer, and cheaper than their other centerfire products.

They say that a Marlin lever action rifle has less parts than a Winchester 94. How's the Henry rifle when it comes to the number of parts in the rifle ?

Coyote, I went to their site and took a look for this 30-30 lever but couldn't seem to find it. Where at on the site is it advertised?

Every walnut-stocked rifle in the Henry catalog has AAA wood. What do you think the chances are, that you're gonna get one like that ?

$750 - $1000, too much for a 30-30. I'll go with Marlin.
I heard that....That's way too much for a Henry. I just bought my oldest son a brand new scoped Marlin 336 30-30 for $400.

I am glad to see a company expanding its product line of lever action rifles. I wish them success. Now if only Mossberg would come out with a remake of its lever action .30-30.

AAA Grade Black Walnut makes that rifle will worth it, if it shoots well.

As for the weight, my 20 gauge XTR Winchester pump shotgun with a Red-field 4x scope weighs in at close to 10 Lbs. I can carry that easily.

For me that's varmint rifle weight. I use leverguns because they are light and short. I'm glad Henry is doing something new too. I wish they'd just cloned the Model 94 Winchester.

I concur Swampman. Looks good though.

I downloaded the hi rez pictures and this rifle doesn't seem to have a loading gate? Looks like it loads the same way as a tube fed .22, thru a port in the tube?

Looks nice. A bit pricey but I bet that will change in a couple years.
Also, I for one am glad it is not a clone of another rifle.
It's a Henry not a Winchester.
I like choices.

No loading gate on Henry's,which is why I would not have one,even at a more reasonable price.
Their 'Bg Boy' lineup for SASS shooters had no gate either...loads like a .22.

not for me.

I've contacted Henry about this issue, and will post their reply, when and if I receive it?
