Well, HENRY makes one, right? Wonder if they make one in .22 Mag. Anyway, the centerfires are hefty guns, I will tell you, and the stock is way too low in my opinion. You cannot get a proper cheek weld. They call it "a traditional outline." Sucks IMO. The rimfires seeme to be loved by all, including the action. Go for it!!!

OK, time's up. It's the Spencer Repeating Rifle.

What longarm was designed by and named after a US Army General?
