"Henry has released a new firearm, both in the general and specific sense. The new Henry Axe is a smoothbore lever action chambered in .410, with a barrel length of "just under 16 inches" and an OAL of 26.5″. It is also equipped with a King's gate (receiver side loading gate) and threaded for chokes. I do believe it is the first firearm from Henry to have a King's gate in their blued "Steel" receiver. With a "axe handle" grip instead of a buttstock, this puts the "Axe" into the category of a "Firearm"…"

Interesting, Armand.
This reminds me of a long ago tv western series called "Wanted Dead of Alive". It starred Steve McQueen as Josh Randall. He carried a sawed off rifle that was almost identical. Carried the weapon in a modified holster like the one for a six shooter. Curious as to the motivation. Henry is most famous for incredibly accurate long guns. And by long guns, I mean long barreled.

Thanks for the find.

It's a mare's leg. I see very little need in a .410 in such a configuration.

Henry is known for their lever actions, not necessarily more accurate than a Marlin, Savage, Rossi or Winchester.

A short 410… perfect for my 8 year old!
