HENRY RIFLE: THE STORY OF BENJAMIN TYLER HENRY AND HIS FAMED REPEATING RIFLE Although the Henry rifle was the technical marvel of its age, many American military minds doubted whether the average mid-nineteenth century soldier could effectively operate it, and as a result the new rifle saw only limited purchase and use during the Civil War. Yet it quickly became a legend, and these revolutionary rifles that one could "load on Sunday and shoot all week" acquitted themselves very well on the battlefield.The Table of Contents includes the following: * Foreword * Introduction * The Man: Benjamin Tyler Henry * The Rifle: Henry's Patent Repeating Rifle * Anatomy of a Henry Rifle * Physical Characteristics of the Henry Rifle * The Survey: A Detailed Study into the Anatomy of the Henry Rifle * The Action: Tiggle Link System * Receivers * Barrels * Stocks * Sights * Serial Numbers * Factory Inspector's Markings * Weight of the Henry Rifle * U.S. Martial Henry Rifles * Engraved and Inscribed Henry Rifles * Henry Rifles with Plated Finishes * Variations * Accouterments * Ammunition/Bullet mold/Percussion Insert * Special Interst Henry Rifles * Wichester's Coming Rifle: Improved Henrys * Collectibility of Henry Rifles * Bibliography * Index * About the Author ISBN: 1-882824-33-4 publish date: 05/31/2008
