Which Henry Rifle Would You Like To Win?  [Poll]

We have not done a giveaway in a while and when Henry Rifles contacted us asking if we wanted to give away a rifle, I asked “which rifle?”. They responded “your choice”. I am not eligible to win, so my choice is irrelevant (If Henry has any spare rifles they wanted to give away to a humble blog Editor I would gladly take one .. hint hint). *

So I thought I would ask y’all which Henry rifle you would like to win. Let me know in the poll embedded below …

I will announce how to enter the competition after the poll closes.  If this poll is popular I might make this kind of poll (Which gun from company X is your favorite?)  a regular event (but without a giveaway).

* That was a joke. No TFB staff, myself included, are allowed to receive free firearms.  I am very strict about his.

  • Dennis Robbins

    Big Boy Steel — 44 mag. for sure!!

    • desert

      I want two, the .357 and the survival .22

  • Sianmink

    Brass .357 or .45 Colt Mare’s Leg pls.

  • Nashvone

    I want the .45-70. Of course, I’ll be happy to take any of them.

  • Asdf

    The one with a loading gate…wait a minute, none of the have a loading gate!

    Actually, the Henry I want isn’t in your list. The scout 22lr with large loop.

  • Anonymous

    Steel .44 magnum or .45-70. I hope I don’t win, or I’ll end up having to get an MVA scope to have that perfect look and fit for the style of it.

  • Budogunner

    Many thanks for offering the contest. This is a very generous think for TFB to be doing. Good show.

    • AC11

      Actually, isn’t this generous on the part of Henry?

      • Budogunner

        Both, I’d say. They could have requested a free rifle for review instead.

  • FrenchKiss

    The Original. Oh, that’s not on the list either.

  • Southpaw89

    Tough choice between the 45-70 and the steel .44mag, but had to go with the mag.

    • MR

      Yeah, the 45-70 would be cool, but I voted for the 44mag ’cause I’d probably shoot it more/find it more practical. That, and I didn’t see a 45-70 mare’s leg on the list.

      • MR

        Oh! 45-70 AR-7!! Or 357. Just can’t get behind 22lr with the instability in the rimfire ammo market around here.

        • jcitizen

          Me too – .22 cal is history as far as I’m concerned. If we can’t make enough of it now – what do you thing it will be like when the proverbial SHTF? Only center fire guns for me from now on!

      • jcitizen

        With a mares leg in 45-70, I doubt you could get more than two rounds in the ammo tube. However, it would be more accurate as a representative of the ammo that was carried by the actor in dead or alive TV series. Steve said he carried the bigger ammo to make an impression, but I think the gun was actually .44-40

  • 45-70!

    • Paul White

      KABOOM! I would love either that or a .44. I mean, hell, either one is awesome

  • Will P.

    I really had to sit there for a few minutes to answer this one. I like all of them except the Mare’s Leg style. I have been looking at a .44 mag or .357 mag lever action for a while, I’m still upset that I traded off my Henry lever 22lr, a 45-70 would just be awesome, and AR-7s are pretty cool. Thanks guys TFB crew!

    • HAHA, The Mares Leg was my choice! I really want one of those … just because.

      • Will P.

        Believe me I wouldn’t turn one down, I can find fun out of any gun I think. Just never have seen much of a purpose for one. It’s kind of like an SBR to me, they are cool and would be fun but I just don’t see the point.

      • Anonymoose

        I wouldn’t mind a Mare’s Leg in .45-70…

    • Ben Pottinger

      I want the 357mag so I can thread it and put a 9mm suppressor on it!

      • Chase

        You just changed my mind. much want

  • RainDownMyBlues

    .357 all the way

  • kgallerno

    I doubt being a Canadian I can participate in this draw even though I read the Firearms Blog daily. Lord knows I could use a nice lever action rifle in .44 magnum to round out my rifle collection.

  • Kelly Jackson

    Henry Big Boy Steel .44 Magnum

  • Grindstone50k

    Go big or go home. .45-70.

  • Amanofdragons

    Definitely the 45-70. Cuz, do you really need a reason to get one?

  • ltulrich

    .44 magnum is the obvious choice. Unless you’re a .357 fanboi.

  • USMC03Vet

    Mare’s leg looks the funnest one to shoot. Small but with a punch. Perfect combination for the lever action.

  • James in Australia

    If I was eligible the .44 steel Big Boy would be my choice. But alas I’m not in the US.

  • Jack Burton

    Nice gesture. Still, can’t get over the way Henry centerfires load…not with all the other options out there. Fix that and I’ll buy one(or three).

    • MR

      While we’re at it, how ’bout a slide-action? Something like the old shooting gallery guns, but chambered in 357 or 44 mag. Might have to do some research…

  • Bosch

    45-70 for the Tyrannosaurus hunting, of course.

  • jeff k

    45-70 all the way !!!!

  • Chuck

    I want the small game .22 with the octagonal barrel and skinner style sights. But I’ll take any of them, Henry makes good stuff.

  • KinkyBear

    Big Boy .44

  • Scott G

    45-70 would have to be my choice.

    • Gabe

      Right there with you, .44 mag wouldn’t be a bad choice but I like the versatility of 45-70. Can pretty much take anything in North America and can be loaded in many different configurations.

      • Marcus D.

        Tough choice between them, but the .45-70 is so classic I just have to have one, with the .44 second and the .357 third.

  • Rodford Smith

    What I would really like is a Big Boy in .45 Colt.

    • garyolson

      I will ditto this choice……many minutes later I have now looked thru the entire Henry catalog. I didn’t need that; or maybe I did.

  • Mark Ditter

    I’m sorry if I’m being picky, the the company is “Henry Repeating Arms.”

  • G0rdon_Fr33man

    Heard about a lever-action in .500 S&W Magnum… I´d like that 😛

  • Zebra Dun

    The AR-7 I’m in need of a float-able, easy store Canoe gun.

    I’d take the 45/70 if not for that.

  • Martin Grønsdal

    can I win every rifle? OK?


    question: does not the rear sight look a little delicate?

  • Geo

    45-70 for me Since I reload I can load to any spec. Light to heavy.

  • Devil_Doc

    Mares leg in .45-70 with a Sig Brace.

  • Blake

    Any pistol-caliber levergun with a short octagon barrel makes my wallet burn & cringe in fear…

  • Michael Robason

    where is the 30-30 ? humm

  • robocop33

    If you want to put this firearm up on display then the 45-70 or even the 44 mag. but if you are going to use it for hunting, or just plain shooting then the .357 Mag. has to be the choice as that is the cheapest to fire! Also it is one hard hitting round!

    • MR

      Does it cycle 38 Special well also? That seems to be an even more budget oriented option, around here anyway.

      • jcitizen

        That shouldn’t be a problem. as you can cycle 44 special in the 44 magnum as well. The shorter rounds allow more count in the storage tube(magazine) as well.

  • Anon. E Maus

    Would be really nice to have any of these, but I’d have to get into some serious hunting to get a license for them, hell, I think it’d be hard to get an AR-7 on a target license in this country. Bummer.

  • Michael Robason

    What about the 30-30?

  • jfsoren

    I already have a Henry Big Boy in .357 magnum, and I dearly love it, but I don’t have a lever action .22, so that’s what I’d vote for.

  • GNewman

    I am in

  • desert

    WELL! I am not on your staff, where is my free rifle? 😉

  • Doom

    Wow, .357 is dominating! 😀 Really wish they had the Big Boy Steel in .357, but beggars cant be choosers now can they? so .357 with the brass receiver it is!

  • Pestilence

    Where’s the ‘None. They are cheaply made garbage’ option?

  • Morgan Jameson

    I have never won a damn thing in my life, except a Barry Manilow record from a Top 40 rock station. (I told them to keep it.) That being said, if I ever won a Henry, I’d give it to my dad, who has wanted a brass-frame Henry for several years but can’t afford it. (I’d buy him one, but I can’t afford it either.) If my book takes off, the first thing I’m doing is buying my dad a brass Henry. Personally, I’d like the Mare’s leg or .45-70, but he lives in NY state so a brass .44 would be best for him. I love the original reproduction Henry best – which was not an option here, so I said Big Boy. You guys have a great blog!

  • Raven Lee

    .357 mag to go with your sidearm, either a double action or a single action revolver, or even a snubnose.

  • Richard

    I love the .22 golden boy but I would have to say a 45/70 tops any of them.

  • Tim Barrera

    My vote is the 1860! Why is it not an option 🙁

  • Eric Hall

    That Henry Big Boy .44 Magnum looks great
