    “Historically, freedom is a rare and fragile thing . . . Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell

    The stock is just stunning. The forearm is a little on the light side.... Dont read that as complaining, it's incredible.

    Ever since H&R went down, I lost my source for single shot rifles...until now. I love single shot rifles...they're just plain old fun. That .45-70 is beautiful.

    I just picked mine up from the LGS this morning. I don't know where Henry finds the walnut for these, but I wish they'd point Marlin to it. Another great job by Henry with beautiful fit and finish.
