    That's cool, the price is not higher. I like how it can still be unloaded through the tube magazine the Henry way and they do not have to be cycled out.

    I never had an issue with the tube magazine, seeing the stated complaints as more of a perceived issue than a real issue, but I can see where having the gate will appeal to a larger market. My .22 is a tube magazine and I never gave it a second thought.

    I never saw tube loading as an issue. I just think side gates are much easier to load through.

    If they come out in 357, 44, and 45 Colt - they’ll sell a boat load.

    The gate loading is better when you are about to be overrun by natives. What I don’t like is the 20” barrel. That makes it a NO for me.

    These are just the first models to be released. The article stated that the rest will follow. I like their carbine length with large loop lever myself. I also like the 22lr with 24" barrel. And the Evil Roy carbine 22lr. Plus the single shot. Heck, I have a mental list of Henry's that I want that is way too many.

    Personally I do not care about the loading gate other than it looks cool.

    Yes, I read that and will wait. Tube loading is not a deal breaker. I would have bought one of the all weather stainless, but I want a 16”. My son has a Big Boy 44, it’s nice but the 20” barrel detracts from the handiness.

    If they make an all weather stainless in 45-70 I'd be all over it. Other brands have Alaskan guide guns but Henry's action has always been so smooth. Ever since taking a friends 22 mag Henry golden boy I've wanted one but the tube feed was a deal breaker for me.

    I agree with this honestly, no gate shouldn't be a deal breaker on a quality firearm in the caliber you want.
