31 Mar Henry 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle
The original Henry repeating rifle is a lever-action tubular magazine rifle famed both for its use at the Battle of the Little Bighorn and being the basis for the iconic Winchester rifle of the American Wild West.
This particular rifle, chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor, is a modernized version utilizing a 4 round box magazine and floating barrel. While it retains traditional lever action operation they updated it with a machined and chromed steel bolt that has a 6 lug rotary head for consistent lock-up. Henry has produced several variants of the “Long Ranger” in .223 .308 and .243 which pass through a 20 inch barrel (22 inch if chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor). This one features a 1:08 twist providing increased bullet stability and accuracy. All versions ship with scope mounts included, but there are two versions of the 6.5 Creedmoor, one has iron sights mounted and one does not. So, If you plan to shoot without a scope be sure to double check which one you have. While it has proven capable at shorter ranges in my testing; I am looking forward to seeing what it can do when the quarantine is lifted and I can access longer targets. If all this is not enough the rifle features an oil-finished walnut stock and fore grip that have top end fit and finish. I topped this one with a @vortexopticsDiamondback FFP 4-16×44 and sent rounds down range and on target Rikki Friggin Tick.
