Manufactured by the New Haven Arms company in 1865 this Civil war period Henry rifle is the 2nd model variation. Chambered for the 44 Henry cartridge and constructed of gunmetal brass with octagon barrel. The Henry rifle was a both a successful military rifle during the war of northern aggression and a prized possession during our expansion into the western frontier of America. fitted with the correct 900 yard ladder rear sight and a previously unobserved front sight collar and blade front sight. Sling swivels are mounted on left side of stock and left side of barrel. During detail disassembly , matching serial numbers where observed on barrel, lower receiver tang, butt stock mortise and butt plate. Screws are not numbered on these later production 2nd models. CONDITION. Very good overall with blue finish having turned to mellow brown patina. The gun metal brass receiver has a pleasant mustard coloring and the side plates fit excellently with little evidence of removal. The bore is very slightly pitted with very strong rifling. Magazine follower and spring assembly are proper and correct. Action and mechanics properly function. The American walnut stock has been very lightly sanded and a small crack emitting from the rear of the tang slot has been professionally repaired at some earlier time. A very attractive and honest Civil war period Henry rifle. TDW
