Henrys designed on wall and oldie but goodie to guess at

Golden boy and Big boy 44cal and oldie up top but came out vertical for some reason. Helped designed with Anthony Imperato owner of Henry's and friend, check out brass screws and barrell bands, and lever duplicate from Rifleman tv show and engraving but cannot see it right of course. I have a hell of a time with this computer with images for some reason. I know I am stupid right! JLC

I should have told you that I also have the mate with built in stock, rolling sling, 22lr semi auto, tube fed. Both are 1955, the 22 w/sling came with original hande book with the noting of cross manurfacturing, and why that year. It points out that demand was not fullfilled by JC Higgins, in contract w/sears so Smith & wesson, made a deal and bailed them out of that particular year. Both shoot great and never a foul up. I have to get you guys the picture of my Ruger w/ ivory grips and a perfect match single shot pistol, 1893 dakota model. My pride and joy of all time. The engraving is incredible and is Nickle w/ivory, and made to not lighn up on the first click, to fool the guy you are shooting at, But when you draw and pull the Bisley trigger back or fan it, that is what Bisley contributed to Ruger back then a Half cocked already looking trigger, and very easy though single action to just hold trigger pull down and fan 6 times. Great Gun and cannot believe I own it still yet, I do not know why they assigned it on this website like that though to answer your question. But That is the gun I want a price for from you when you get going on leatherwork. Just jumped in my man.JLC

I have a golden boy myself. Octagonal barrel. Love it. Heavy as sheet for a 22 though.

Yes they are heavy, but after shooting a while, and it always gives me the sense of being back in time when I do, but these, and especially the Designed Golden Boy, were for me and my brother that I lost, and engraved "Brothers forever"- And the wood from Borneo and all. Other dtuff too and I am friends for a long time with Anthony Imperato, Now owner, past down. They had a chance to be like the crabbers, and American Chopper, on TV and turned it down. Great guns and open sites only for me on these babies and right on the spot every time you pull the trigger, even on the Big boy 45. I really think it is a obvious favorite of mine, and will pass it down to one grandkid at least. But thanks for the look and I know you enjoy yours, there are just something about holding the octagon Barell and weight and being right on with it? You agree right ? John

I do get a different feeling when shooting the cowboy guns. I like it more than a autoloader myself. Revolvers and levers, right up there with titties and beer.

Titties and beer,

Damn Vaq, sounds like you been listening to Rodney Carrington. Dammit, he was in Dallas the first weekend in March and I couldn't get tickets. That sucked. I REALLY wanted to see him. I gotta agree with you Vaquero, Levers and revolvers, next best thing to titties and beer.

I just realized that I put 45 cal instead of 44 on the Big Boy, to much Tylenol?-- But yea Vaq I just feel better and even stronger or something, I love to shoot the revolver and from Hip and then the 44 Lever, and I think the big loop is reminding me of the old Black & white TV's with the Rifleman and Bonanza, Damn now I feel older than dirt, but it started out right, LOL John
Reap is calling me on velocity on the SG5S 22lr and telling me I have a clone of something else, but I was there and shot it and the powder shit does not explode with a shot from regular 22lr at 125 yards and I shot them both all day. I do not now why except the manurfacturer says with the double Breech on the SG5S and blowback with suppressor, gives higher velocity thatn regular 22lr. It proved it when we shot. But nobody has to believe it. I was the only one their with some friends & guys. Now I have to figure out how to change that 45 cal Henry on the post to 44 cal. Any body know how ? John

The only real difference is the velocity of the round. I think the 44 is a bit faster, but I wouldn't want to get shot with a 22 much less a 44 or 45. I've only shot a couple of lever actions and only two or three single action pistols, but they are unique to shoot. Maybe its those of us who grew up with tv shows like "The Rifleman," "Bonanza," "The Big Valley," "Wagontrain," and "Wanted: Dead or Alive" and all the great John Wayne and Clint Eastwood movies, as well as seeing Randolf Scott, Audie Murphy, and Gene Autry in so many of the Western movies too.

Randy I am glad you are on, You were Navy and did you have any experience with rescue with pilots ? I was going threw some old stuff and came across and old pair of military Pilot realesers from cockpit training device. Primarily They are ptobably different now, but you load with a nitrogen or compressed air cartridge and then they are like the worlds strongest sissors. The damn thing still works, but it still looks like and old staple gun, painted black. Just wondered? John

John,

I just posted a pic of the ship I served on. She is the USS JUNEAU LPD 10. I was a qualified as a lifeboat coxwain (pronounced cocksun) and a rescue swimmer. The swimmers aboard the ship were issued little knives that resembled something that you can now buy at almost any outdoors store. It looked like a hook that used a razor blade that you would put in a utility knife or a carpet or leather knife. They were cast aluminum or something like that and painted either black or OD green. They worked great as long as the blades were pretty fresh. We changed our blades every three months whether it needed it or not, or anytime it showed any rust. Anytime we held flight ops (almost always handling only helos) we all checked our knives for fresh blades. We learned that these knives worked about as good as anything we could have. We had one of the things you are talking about but it almost always stayed in the lockers. The little knives we tied to our life jackets or something like that with a long lanyard that would reach just a little farther than our arms. We also tried to keep two boats rigged to the rail for quick lowering in the event we had a pilot go down. The only time I can remember a chopper going down, we were like ten miles away, and by the time we got to the location, the chopper was sunk and I think the pilot had been recovered by another ship. We searched the area for wreckage, per protocol, but I think there was only a pilot and co-pilot on board and both had been recovered. If I remember correctly, something went wrong with the bird, and it was found to be no one's fault. Not pilot error, not related to someone not performing proper maintenance, I think some of the instruments malfunctioned and the pilot and co-pilot were trying to locate the source and a fire broke out so they ditched. They were not in a position to land safely on deck so they hit the water. I know that the pilot's and co-pilot's flight suits were reported to have been charred, so that would make sense. They were lucky in that 1), there was a ship in plane guard position, and 2), they were pulled out of the water in less than about 20 minutes. It was a night operation, and we spent literally most of the night searching for debris. That sucked, as we had one watch section on watch, and one section looking for debris in the water.

James I have the 44, so I am sorry I put that wrong, getting old and hit the wrong keys, but I have a 357 ruger for 38 years now, pistol , I know they call it a name now but back then they did not when they first came out and had trouble with the cylinder, but fixed it for free. I am gonna get a 44 colt or is it a Blackhawke, Ruger? Both are real cool and will go with my Henry 44. Gotta be careful with money though. There is a problem I have though. A special friend has a 2006 ( I think or 2008 ) and Winchester made 501 44-40's duplicate from original mold from 1873 model, and he paid 2000.00 for it and every other year they supposedly bring out another 99 to sell and I think this is one of the last years now. What I am getting at is he offered it to me for 850.00 with all paprework from Winchester like certificate of authenticity etc. He has never shot it ? Now if you ever heard of agent-orange, is taking his life and has about six months left. What the hell do I do, take the man even though he wants only me to have it. No kids, just wife. I have had 4 surgeries from that shit already too. But dr. says under control. How do I handle this one. I guess that has been bothering me lately. I am asking you guys besides friendship, what would Alvin York, John Wayne, Audie Murphy, Patton, etc, do ? Thanks JOHN

Then buy it. He evidently would rather you more than anyone else have it at that price so you are not doing anything wrong by taking it.

I have a friend that is known by the nick name Machine Gun Billy. He has a Sig 556 DMR set aside for me and has held onto it for over a year. He is selling it to me for $1000.00 which with all the extras he bought for it is less than 3rd of what he paid for it all. I had something come up and told him to sell it and he told me no, it would be there when I want it. The way he explained it is he is my friend, I've been there for him at various times when others were not and he knows he can call me anytime and I will be there. So, it sits, he doesn't care that it is sitting and it is mine when I hand him the cash. People have asked him about buying it and he tells them it is mine, not his to sell. really weird to me because I've not had any friends like that before. But, he is ok with it so I guess my reservations have been trumped so it doesn't bother me anymore.

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

Thanks my man for quick responce. That is it, I just am short a couple hundred and do not want him to wait for his money, and I know he is doing it for me, but he could get more for his wife and him right now to use for the last 6 months. It is hard to reach this F#@#ing age when guys that put everything on the line for you have these problems. They want to give the guys back that stuck up for each other, and sometimes forget what their wife or they need. I used to tease him all the time about having a actual working, same mold winchester 73. And how I was jealous. Now I wish I never said a word. But I will dig it up fast if most of you guys agree. You are #1 and not just for answering me first. Thanks JOHN

I aagree with ISD

John, this has come up in my family. A cousin has a couple of guns that her dad had. This cousin is more like an aunt to me. She is three years younger than my mother and her dad taught me to hunt and fish as a boy. He taught me other lessons about life, that I didn't realize until well after I was grown. Anyway, she offered to give me any of his guns that I wanted. One of them is a Browning "humpback" 12 ga. It is in excellent condition, or was the last time I saw it. Anyway, not long ago, I had not gotten down there to get the gun and she ran into a tight for some money. My mom told me about it and I told her (my mom) to get in touch with someone who knows the value of the guns and if any of them are worth more than a couple hundred to have this person sell them for my cousin and be sure she (my cousin) got the money. She needed the money to get her house fixed as it was not livable at the time. The house has not been repaired yet, but a mission group has taken over the project for her. Hopefully it will be finished by the end of the year. If she sold the guns to get her house fixed, then that is fine. She needed the money, and really the guns were hers. I hope the guy she paid it to gets some of it back to her as he didn't do the job. If the guns are still there, then, I will probably have one or more of them waiting on me. I will never ask her or my mom if I think she may hear about it. I would love to have the guns, but I could not give her even half of what I believed their value to be, so if she got the money for them, then that's great. If I find out that she got the money and the guy she paid hasn't paid her back, I'm liable to pay him a visit. One that I don't think he wants.

In your situation, I think the guy doesn't care about the value. It's his way of telling you that your friendship is worth more than the value of what he could get for the gun somewhere else. If you have, or can get the money, without putting your and your wife's livelyhoods in jeopardy, then do it. I don't think your friend would want you to do that.

I hear what you are saying, and the other guys too and appreciate all helping w/opinion. But Like I said we made a pack 41 years ago and not it is time to lose one. I have heard from other 3, and he asked for a stupid amount for different guns he thought all of us individually would like. He kept the price just high enough for all the rest of us, final four soon, where we almost have to say yes. If we give the money and do not take guns, it will destroy our brother like pac. I have got to do some thinking, and thankyou Randy for advice, it opened up another thinking door for me anyway, thanks my friend. John

SJMB,

I too would like one of those Vaqueros or a Uberti clone. Along with a model 94 or something like that in .45 long colt. Like you say, so that my ammo fits both weapons. I could deal with both being in either .44 or .357 mag as long as I was using it simply for pleasure. The .44 would work for most everything just the ammo is expensive like the .45lc. Hell if wishes were horses, we'd all be riding the finest horse flesh money could buy.

I like the .45 colt for the nostalgia. In my mind, if your taking yourself back in time, use the right round, right? I would love to get one of those fancy tooled belts with all the ammo loops too.

I would get one anyway horse or not. Even if it ain't fancy. You know just as well as anyone, running around in West Texas, on a horse or ATV or whatever you're on, a rifle get real dusty. I have realized that, after my jaunts to the lease, I need to protect my rifle.

Fancy belts,

yep, I started to make one once, then realized how much trouble they are to tool and how hard it is to get the loops right. The one I did make, was just smooth without loops. But one of these days, I will get me one of those guns and make me a belt for it. I may "cheat" a little by buying one of the kits from Tandy but I will do it. That is if I ain't too old to get on a horse by then. LOL. I don't have any horses, but I do love to ride them when I get a chance. Who knows, if I get lucky and win the lottery, I'll get me some of those things, and the horse too. Then, I'll make a saddle scabbard for the rifle too!

yea, Vaq,

I feel ya. Hate it that you had to get rid of the horses. They can be a blast to ride. Even when they want to act up and do stupid shit. I have learned that if the rider can teach the horse that the rider is in control, they get along a lot better. The problem comes from when the rider lets the horse win and then don't get back on. Horses can be pretty smart for no bigger brain than they have. Of course if you get a horse with some "cow sense" then you usually have a pretty good one and one that will work for you. Of course, you also have to realize that the horse can sense danger especially when it comes to snakes. I guess they can smell them as well as hearing them. A friend of mine had one that would walk to a particular spot, but then you couldn't make it get any closer to this one spot in the fence. A couple of days later we gassed about four snakes out of that spot. The smallest one was about 3 feet long, the biggest one was almost 5. Yep, we killed them. They were all diamond backs.

As for the cowboy thing, must be that damn John Wayne syndrome. LOL
