    Henry 45/70, and good experience with GC

    I ordered one of these off the GC website but turned our to have old fashioned v-sights and not the flasher XS ghost rings. Refunded via a voucher no problem. Few months later and no sign of Henry shipment so took voucher if and received overnight refund. Pretty please as a shop does not need to do that on a voucher. Ordered the Henry but may be 6 months or more away so not even worth placing a deposit.

    Really need a 45/70.

    Grab it, action will handle whatever you can think of and if done by collins and bradley then i guess the barrels new and not a martini henry cut down so will handle jacked projectiles but cast is so much fun! If you dont i could be interested

    Lovely, Din always did nice work. Is that the original disc in the cheekpiece?
