Henry 45-70 Lever Action Rifle - Our lever gun offerings have progressed from .17 and .22 caliber rimfires, to pistol cartridge centerfires and in 2011 to the most popular deer-hunting caliber of all – the .30-30. Now for 2012 we are introducing a new model chambered for a famous cartridge capable of handling even the largest game in North America. That’s right: We now make .45-70 lever actions!
Introduced by the U.S. Army in 1873, this cartridge was first known as the .45 Government. As it made its way into commercially produced firearms the name .45-70 appeared, because it was loaded with a 70 grain blackpowder charge with 405 and 500 grain bullets. Virtually all rifle making companies of the late 19th century chambered their single shots and lever actions for the .45-70. As those companies and their rifles faded away, the .45-70’s popularity did not. Factory .45-70 ammunition has been cataloged continuously since 1873 but never in the variety of loadings available now, in the 21st century. They range from 405 grain lead bullet, low-velocity loads for deer hunting and target shooting to high-velocity 300 to 400 grain jacketed bullet ones meant for large game.
Its’ receiver is blued steel fitted with an 18.43″ round barrel underneath and a tubular magazine of four-round capacity. Its pistol-grip buttstock and steel-capped forend are crafted of beautiful American walnut and cut with checkering to provide a sure grip. The buttstock wears a soft rubber pad to help shooters handle .45-70 recoil from a 7.08 lb. rifle. The model H010 will be factory issued with a fully adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sight with a brass beaded front sight. Because the receiver is drilled and tapped, scope mounting is an easy option.
If you need a handy yet powerful lever gun capable of fast repeat shots in the bear country of Alaska, or just a short, light rifle for deer hunting in the mountains of Pennsylvania, our new Model H010 will provide the accuracy and reliability you can count on.

Ded now


from Elk City, ID

I have an earlier Henry HO10 that has Ghost Ring sights. The caliber is just what one wants if you're looking to stop whatever it is that needs stopped now. There's really no recoil due to the brilliant way that Henry has dealt with it. The action cycles like it was polished chrome. The safety is a very well thought thru and engineered transfer bar system, and very safe. The caliber and cartridge has taken the big 5, and is a good choice for a guide gun. The low velocity is reputed to cause very minimal bruising (hydro shock), go thru the thickest of bones, or 8 feet of flesh with the 405 grain bullets. Great close range heavy brush cartridge. Kind of like halfway between a .308 and a 12 gauge slug. It does it's job well. The beauty of tube load is unloading, especially if a jam occurs. Loading gates tend to be much more of a pain overall than a tube load. Fit and finish are very good. They're made in Wisconsin, not some weird low standard place in the world. Customer service is THE BEST, I called on a Sunday one time and Mr. Anthony Imperato himself answered the phone and dealt with my questions. Great company, great guns!

LOVE MY 45/70


from Medford, OR

For a while I was looking for a 45/70 and I was not wanting to spend 1500 bucks it fell between the marlin 1886 and the Henry 010 what sold me on the Henry was the safety on the marlin I've herd when shooting it it will sometimes engage so I went with the Henry and the quality and accuracy has superseded my expectations I will be buying another Henry in the future bottom line

Love this gun.


from Virginia

I purchased this rifle for hunting in the brush, deer, bear and hogs. I love everything about this rifle, fit, feel, weight, length and the recoil really is not that bad considering what your putting in it (lots of lead). I scoped mine with a 3x9 Nikon prostaff and for those wanting to do this any mount that fits a Marlin 336 will fit this rifle its what its tapped for, I asked Henry rifles and this is what they suggested. My gun with 300 grain bullets will shoot a hone see t 1.5" group off the bench at 100 yards all day long. I haven't hunted with it yet but I would exspect it will perform like a 50cal muzzle loader. If youve been looking for some real knockdown power look no futher. I researched this caliber and guns chambered for it and this gun was at the top of the list even rated better than the guide gun by marlin since they changed hands.
