Default Henry or Uberti ????

Which is the most quality product for the buck ?
I'm looking for the 44 Mag. versions.

If you are saying the 1873 reproduction then I would suggest the Henry as it has a stronger action.

I have an 1873 Uberti-45 Colt.It's an excellent and beautiful rifle,and very well made.
But for a 44mag,I'd go with a Henry or Marlin for that caliber.Like HiWall said,they have a stronger action.

If I had to pick between the two I would go with Henry. Made in the USA too!

as i have seen and held both in person, have never had the chance to shoot the Uberti, but have shot the Henry, both are awesome guns. both are well made and have a very solid and rugged feel to them, that just feels like a quality firearm. if i had to make a choice i am not sure which it would be. but either one should serve your purposes very well.

Thanks for the help everyone. It looks like I'll be getting a Henry Big Boy, .44 Mag.
