HENRY DEBUTS LEVER ACTION AXE .410 NON-NFA FIREARM
Henry’s new Axe .410 – and it’s classified as a firearm thus requires no tax stamps!
Henry announced late Thursday, the 16-inch barrel and 26-inch overall length Axe chambered in .410 bore feeds through a side loading gate and has a magazine tube that holds five 2.5-inch shells. It is threaded for invector-style chokes, but is not technically a shotgun and is instead classified as a “firearm” by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives, which means it is not regulated under the National Firearm Act.
Henry says the new offering can be stored in more places than your average long arm and is akin to their Mare’s Leg line.
“Our Mare’s Leg lever action pistols have been a popular choice among shooting sports enthusiasts for many years now, mainly because they’re so fun to shoot and the fact that they look like they came right out of a Western movie,” said Anthony Imperato, President and owner of Henry Repeating Arms. “The Axe shares a similar form factor to our Mare’s Leg with some added features for more versatility.”
The Henry .410 Axe gets its name from the ax-handle style pistol grip which is engraved with the company’s logo. MSRP is $970 and the firearm ships with the removable choke.
