Where do you look when you want a classic lever action with style that sets it apart from the rest, but not enough shine to risk spooking game? Easy—Henry's steel-framed Wildlife editions in two of America’s longest-lived hunting calibers, the same .30-30 and .45-70 that their brass Wildlife rifles are chambered for. The Steel Wildlife models are more subdued than their brass cousins with blued steel frames and furniture. They’re also lighter in weight for long days on foot through dense brush and high mountain terrain. Steel weighs less than Henry's hardened brass material and the round barrels here also reduce weight for a trimmer hunting package that loses nothing in performance in the field.
The H010WL in .45-70 is a trim powerhouse with its 18.43” barrel, semi-buckhorn rear, and tall brass bead front sight. A checkered pistol grip walnut stock, sling swivel studs, and a ventilated black rubber recoil pad fill out the package. A 24K gold relief profile of a bear adorns the left side of the blued frame inside gold-accented scroll, line, and braided borders, with a gold relief image of a moose head on the right side. 14" length-of-pull. 1 in 20" twist.
