    Sorry, but that'd look so much better in blue or Parkerising.

    Too old I suppose.

    To anyone interested in collecting old firearms this is one that is very much sought after.

    1st generation, 1860 Henry, serial number 275, iron frame. Calibre .44 rim fire.

    They only made 300 of these with the iron frame. Most were made with what we refer to as brass frames but in actuality were a type of bronze.

    Hence its rarity

    Oh I like it alright mate!
    Just didn't have any idea what was special about it.

    Although I remember reading about a guy who went hunting up the Corromandel with a .44 rimfire a few years back, he has only been able to find about a dozen rounds in NZ.
    "I came into this game for the action, the excitement... go anywhere, travel light,... get in, get out,... wherever there's trouble, a man alone... Now they got the whole country sectioned off; you can't make a move without a form."

    I'd picked it as a Henry circa 1800s but google as I might (all combinations of Henry, lever action, auction, hex barrel, antique) I couldn't find the pic anywhere.

    If I had, I'd've shamelessly posted what it was as if I knew all the rest.

    I have a .56 rimfire in my gun safe, just aching to be fired.

    Found brass in the US

    Just need a mould that will throw a bullet of .56 at 350 gns.

    I guessed it was a 44 Henry - but had no idea why it was worth so much, I was thinking it must have been owned by somebody famous.

    Never realised they were THAT rare.

    Any Henry is rare, from memory they only made a few thousand of them.

    The iron frame version is the pinacle of collecting lever action rifles.

    Have a look at the web site I posted in response to Wolfs comments.

    Lots of wonderful toys and they will post to NZ (mostly)

    Yeah, that thought had crossed my mind, too.

    Knew it couldn't have been William Cody's Sharps, though.

    The next rarest Winchester is referred to as the "transitional model"

    They took the Henry and put a side loading gate on it, blanked off the top end of the magazine tube.

    This was the fore runner to the 1866 "Yellowboy" and there were about 50 made.

    The person I was looking after in Afghanistan was buying old guns and rifles over there and shipping them back to the states a lot of the guys there were doing that. They would pay around $100 U.S then sell them for around $500-1500 each,
    They are very expensive.

    Thats why you should also always do a decent bit of research and invest in a good set of rings. I have seen $6000 rifles miss a target at 100yards because the chap was too stingy to spend $150 on a set of rings
