Years ago my brother was looking for a 45-70 but couldn’t find one so he ended up buying a 444 Marlin – which also packs a punch. It’s pretty close to the 45-70 and ballistics, but it just really wet my appetite for that big boar caliber. Ever since then, I’d wanted a 45-70 and after I bought my first one, I was dead set. If you’ve never tried 45-70 and recoil doesn’t scare you, then this is definitely one to check out. A

The Henry Arms rifles are all made in the USA. They do have a lifetime warranty on them. One of the things that Henry says is made in the USA or not at all. There’s a ton of different models of these made again and I mean there’s just a number of different calibers and that includes the sideloading gates. If you’re looking for a 45-70, especially in the lever action, I highly recommend checking out the Henry Arms. They’re to me the best lever action rifle company out there with really high-quality wood, beautiful metal, beautiful finishes, and of course now with the side loading gate. This really gives you the best of both worlds and makes it very safe.
