You could get a used Marlin marlin from a few years back, the new ones from Remington have gotten mixed reviews. Some swear they are worse, others swear they are the same.
The Henry rifles are made in the states, but they're not the same as the original 1860 Henry Rifle. They look somewhat similar, but operate very differently. Pretty much the only company making proper Henry reproductions is Uberti.
