Henry Rifle - This rifle was a 16-shot, .44 caliber repeater that was a fast shooting gun in the Am. Civil War. But for all its positive attributes, less than 2,000 Henrys were purchased for Union regiments. Hundreds more were bought by soldiers & officers as private purchases throughout the war year.

Henry .44 Rimfire Rifle- Produced in New Haven, CT, only about 10,000 Henry rifles were manufactured before 1865. With limited availability, the price went up & soon the Henry was a $50-$100 rifle. Despite having a 16-shoot tubular magazine, the Henry could only pump out a pistol-level projectile –a short 200-grain, .44 caliber bullet at fairly slow velocity. The breechloading Henry sent off projectiles considerably larger in diameter & much heavier in weight.
