    I picked this unfired Uberti 45lc Henry up for 800 bucks cash face to face. I sold my 4440 years ago for 900.

    Whats neat about these too is that the 900-1000 yard ladder sight actually works.
    The cowboy ammo 44-40 and 45LC are both very close ballistically to the 44 Henry Flat.
    You really can put your sight at 200 or 300 and lob the lead pretty close.

    Dont ever use anything more than weak cowboy loads. The wivestale for that is about the brass frame but thats wrong. Its the toggle linkage inside that cant handle heavy hitting. That gos for 1860 Henry and the repo 1866, 1873 etc.
    The later models 1886 or 1894 have the heavy bolt with locking bars but not these early types.

    Ive heard more than one guy say something about cooking up a load and getting it hot.
    Noooo. Get a different gun if you want a 45LC "Magnum".
