  It'd be a pretty long list.  SKB, BSS, a pair of Vaquero's, a good pistol caliber lever gun , basically something good that can be used in CAS.  I've got over 20 '97s so theyre probably out.

Do you still have this? Would you be interested in a trade for a Pedersoli Rolling Block in 45-70?

  Yep, still got it, but I don't need a Roller, can't see good enough to shoot long range:angry:

  Thanx for the interest!

Just my 2 cents, in the event this might add perspective to someone considering this.

 

I have a similar one of these and IMHO they are drop-dead-gorgeous shootin’ irons.  Mine doesn’t have sling swivels; wish it did.It has become my go-to rifle for CAS (second place would be my Uberti Model 1866; aka The Yellow Boy). Found it also very useful for Cowboy Lever Action silhouette matches.  Those big 45 slugs smack the silhouette targets with real authority.  The original Henrys had a reputation for accuracy due to their heavy barrel that was machined from solid bar stock. Mine has not disappointed.

 

This is a good price ... just compare to brand-new Henrys at various retailers.

 

Small note of caution.   My 7-decade-old eyes are not on friendly terms with open sights.  I use tang sights both for their vastly increased accuracy potential and because they are so period correct.  My Henry wasn’t drilled and tapped for a tang sight.  Relatively simple chore for a gunsmith to do the drilling and tapping; only took mine perhaps 15-20 minutes and the addition greatly increased the gun’s accuracy potential.  Keep this in mind if you want a tang sight. I’m sure I’d go to Cowboy hell if I disgraced that beautiful, period piece with a modern receiver sight.If you and open sights are on speaking terms then no problem.

 

Good luck to the Pard that nails this down ... hope you enjoy it as much as I do mine.

 

Adios
