    Shortly after it was discontinued I saw two go back to back on Gunbroker for over $2000. I bet those guys feel rather foolish.

    "The MSRPs of these rifles will lie anywhere from $939 – $1,069 depending on the configuration."

    They must be buying them back off Gunbroker.

    Why do they make it load like a 22....it should have a loading gate, this is the way lever guns should load....and why I will not own a henry till it comes with a gate.

    Guess I am a cheap bastage, I am not going to pay $1000 for a ruger....yea MSRP and all, but get real....not going to happen.

    Guess I will stick with something nice and old, I don't mind the hunt....that is part of the fun.

    What was the MSRP on these rifles before they stopped production? I thought it was around $1k, and they were all over the internet for sale between $700 and $800, sometimes lower.

    Okay. There are 7 10-22's in the family and I have shot them all and have no complaints with accuracy with any of them. They are all about 1" at 50 yards guns except for one. My father in law has an international that is probably 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 at 50. I don't remember ever breaking a part in any of them and none of them needed any parts or work to make them shoot.

    I bought mine (M77/357) for $650 and thought I paid too much.

    Sorry but I chuckled at this one.

    Ruger is very well known to drop production of certain models for a while only to bring them out again later, happens all the time. The Ruger manufacturing process allows for this.

    I would love to have a .357 version and am glad they're back, though will wait until orders are filled and the prices stabilize again.

    And my experience is 180 from that....that gun and every gun based on that platform is the biggest hunk of junk I have ever come across.

    They will stabilize again............around $800. ;) A few years ago they were $650.

    The production numbers will probably be low and the prices will be high, like the #1's.

    They're fun little carbines, just don't get all wrapped up in MOA. I think we are all getting a little spoiled with 1 MOA rifles.

    Rats! The 77/44 is back?! And I'm broke. :(

    [I can't see iron sights good anymore, and am strongly prejudiced against 'closed-top' lever actions, so the 77/44 is the remaining option.]

    I've read this on here more times then I can count the Henry should have loading gate. Well then it would not be a Henry, it would be a Winchester model 1866. The modern Henry company makes it's coin off nostalgia. They are no sooner going to put a loading gate on the Henry than make it a full auto.

    "They are no sooner going to put a loading gate on the Henry than make it a full auto."

    The modern Henry rifles look like a mix between Marlin and straight gripped Winchester. (With a loading gate omitted to reduce cost and simplify production?)


    I wouldn't mind playing with the Ruger bolt guns but not at the price they command. If I see an H&R .357 I will likely buy it but I'm not sure what I'd use it for. In Missouri we can use normal rifles for deer and I use a .22 for small game/offhand practice.

    A 3moa reflex dot on a 77/44 is what you need. Easy to mount on a short rail.

    Ruger needs to bring back the Deerfield.

    my .357 is a pre-safety 94 marlin and i would not trade it for a ruger or a henry. the bottom rifle is a hard to find .32 H&R magnum in the 94 marlin. look mom, no loading gate. of course i don,t shoot it as its worth more unfired. eastbank.

    I could overlook shooting terrible if it was a semi auto detachable mag carbine.

    Chances are pretty good, Ruger just reintroduced these rifles.

    The Henry Big Boy is so ugly and overweight, I'm shocked that the mag tube is all most folks find to complain about them.

    I wouldn't call them ugly, but they are waaayyy too heavy for what they are. Compare them to a sub 5 pound Rossi 92 in the same calibers.
