Default Uberti vs. Henry 1860

Hey guys,

I’ve been toying around with picking up an 1860 repro for a while now and was wondering if anyone here has shot both the Henry and the Uberti and how they stack up against each other. Cost isn’t really an issue but I’m also not planning on going super deep with CAS competition.

I love the engraved/“gold damascene” Ubertis that Taylors offers so I was about to pounce on one of those just because of the pure cool factor, but figured I’d ask you guys if you thought the Henry was far superior.

I have not shot either one, but Henry does have excellent customer service if you ever need one.

I have no experience with either. I do have a Henry Big Boy and the quality is very nice.
I was going to say Henry since they are made in America but then I checked the prices. The Henry is $1,000 more (MSRP) than the Uberti. I would want to handle both before deciding.

Uberti: $1,369 MSRP

Henry: $2,415 MSRP

Both have brass and color case hardened versions, in both 45 Colt and 44-40.

ETA: Bass Pro lists the Henry at $2,049. They don't list Uberti.

I've got one of those Henry 1860 reproductions, in .44-40.

I like it a lot. There's almost no recoil, it's accurate, and it also makes a lot of friends at the range.

I have shot the Uberti 1860 in .45LC on a number of occasions. Excellent quality and reliability.

Freedom of choice...
Made in America or
Made in Italy

I have a Henry and really love it. I can't say squat about Uberti except it's not made here.

Mated Uberti in 44-40
Both 30 years old, but have always functioned very well and shot accurately. We have a Henry ..........Great rifle, but real, solid quality differences?......... I can't tell.
