This is why you want a HENRY AXE .410 "Firearm" (not a short barreled shotgun)

This is why you want a HENRY AXE .410 "Firearm" (not a short barreled shotgun)

I’ve always thought of Henry as a “traditional” or “heritage” firearm brand. And in a lot of ways, that’s perfectly true. But then came the Axe .410 firearm. This represents Henry taking steps to enter the “tactical” market. This “not a short barreled shotgun” is an extremely capable tool, and a blast to shoot!
The M-lok handguard I installed is made by Midwest Industries (can’t link because of youtube policies, midwest sells firearms on their website) just search “midwest industries henry 45-70” and you won’t have trouble finding it.
Big thanks to Henry for sending this firearm for review!

    hows this better than AKM



  2. Harold Gino Helgeson on October 27, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    This why American citizens need to see why gun laws state to state sould be equal. California law doesn’t allow this perfect home self defense gun. Where else you should look up your state gun laws. Speaking of gun laws right now your Constitutional law is being violated and close to being eliminated. This can be a terrible end to America. Now sometimes this type of government take over can be loss on a 330 million person elimination. Or a call to arms greater then ever in the history of this Great United States of America. We can make this a greatest ever come back together using our Constitutional laws and God given right to Govern this nation as we see fit as it was designed. These appointed non Constitutionally elected so called leaders/rulers are not very smart and or organized in thus effort to take over and enslave it’s people. So I’m alerting yiu citizens of America to look and realize we need change in Government officials, laws reguarding 1st Amendment rights, 2nd Amendment rights, immediately. The fear mongering laws of the past in relation to denials of gun rights due to felony charges is unconstitutional law. If your an American citizen you are encluded under the Constitution of America to bear arms as a armed militia member of these United States of America period. The media fear monger pushed for the 1st and largest law against the 2nd Amendment in the history of this nation. Please think about this and organize people time is short citizens your freedom as well as your lives n families lives could be in the balance, I pray for you all please ๐Ÿ™ take this seriously.

    The standard 410 ax one new is $1000.!!
    Rather do 12g. Pistol grip. 18 inch barrel. For $400. ๐Ÿ‘



  4. tbone21158 on October 27, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    Would this be a good model to buy for my 51 year old wife? Would she be able to handle it for self defense? Or would something else be better for her?



  5. The Late Boy Scout on October 27, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    Love it!



  6. barbara grunitz on October 27, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    What red dot did you select



  7. John Evans on October 27, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    Will the chamber handle 45 long colt round, like the judge pistol.
    ASAP on answers.



  8. Tribulation comes first on October 27, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    Good ol mares leg



  9. Tami Boelter on October 27, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    Mine is ordered! Washington, or should I say King county has become lawless. Now I am ready…



  10. Jason T. Ellis on October 27, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    Is that optic mounted to the weaver 63b? If so what mounting plate did you use? Thank you sir! Great videos ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘Š



  11. Buck on October 27, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    I’ve been eyeing this gun for a while



  12. Corkfish1 on October 27, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    I think Id prefer it with a full stock. How much?



  13. Cody Elmore on October 27, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    How did you install the rail up too which rail did you go with?



  14. Kurt B on October 27, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Ok, ok. THIS will be my last gun (again)! ๐Ÿคฅ



  15. John S on October 27, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    Did you have to change from full choke to improved cylinder when shooting the Hornady critical defense



  16. Nexy on October 27, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    Is that a squeeze activated flash light? Do they make ones that could go on the axe, thatโ€™s maybe activated by squeezing the grip? Looks really good for home defense with a squeeze activated flashlight / strobe light



  17. Joe Monteleone on October 27, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    I would love to have one if I could find one and ammo for it!



  18. skipskip on October 27, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    dude, you took a really cool gun and made it 100x better…. well done man, well done!



  19. Nekronik on October 27, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    Will it shoot .45lc as well?



  20. Hunter Killer on October 27, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    What distance was that you are shooting?



  21. jacob manalang on October 27, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    that is SWEET

    aaaaaand ive been fighting dumping 2 grand into a lever gun. i hope i dont find one locally.

    one of these or a marlin dark series i would HAVE to buy



  22. HighOctaneLens on October 27, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    Yeaaaaah!!



  23. Mike Honcho on October 27, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    You didn’t discover anything, VSO gun channel did this 6 months before you



  24. TheSchmeister on October 27, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    I’m in love with the tactical look with rails. Stick an angled or vertical foregrip to that for better handling and reloading.



  25. Neal Swanson on October 27, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    That’s awesome, period!!!



  26. joser1458 on October 27, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    What flashlight did you attach to it ?Looks awesome!



  27. Robert Arnold on October 27, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    Love it, gotta get one or two



  28. iKocher on October 27, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    I had been looking a putting together a customer Contender in 45 Colt for turkey hunting and fun but this might be an easier choice



  29. Bradley Kiesler on October 27, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    I’ve been looking into these and arguing with myself about getting one. I have a 12g 18.5in barrel raptor griped mossberg 500 I use for home defense but I wouldn’t mind having the 410 to use my hornady triple threats that I have for my judge.



  30. John on October 27, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    Or you could just get an AR, be a lot faster, more accurate, lighter, and have a greater range…



  31. Jerome B on October 27, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    When he was talking about the grip he said โ€œwhatever this is, I donโ€™t know what this is.โ€ Like cmon man itโ€™s not called the axe 410 for nothing



  32. Turner Maddox on October 27, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    Sorry firearm… dead as ffffff



  33. Michael Shearer on October 27, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    game Changer!



  34. Ron Matson on October 27, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    I mean the Shockwave seems way better still



  35. Fort Scott Munitions on October 27, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    Love this video! Now we need to make .410 ammo and I need a henry. lol



  36. Dj Project on October 27, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    Nice. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป



  37. Cavalier X on October 27, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    You wouldn’t use a Henry Axe for Birds? My grill and deep fryer really disagree.



  38. Jonas Grumby on October 27, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    I’ll put my Rossi circuit judge over the Henry ax any day



  39. Brian Miller on October 27, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    Should use PDX rnds for another video



  40. Haley Raven. lil rocket ๐Ÿš€ on October 27, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    One of the best clean easy to handle clean shots ๐Ÿคœ๐Ÿค›๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ™



  41. rock racoon on October 27, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    I carry a Taurus Judge Ultralite..
    This is a no brainer for me..



  42. Ric Caley on October 27, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    Love it ! BUT – Illegal here in Canada – pity, or I would own one….



  43. Yub Nub on October 27, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    Greetings from Texas where I too love guns and guitars



  44. SC on October 27, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    Iโ€™ll keep my Rossi Circuit Judge all of that plus 45 long colt for more than 15 yards and no cocking ๐Ÿ˜ฌ



  45. Southern Rebel on October 27, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    Too expensive for me, but way cool, thanks brother.



  46. Wayne Weeks on October 27, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    It has a full choke in it does it not, so how can you shoot slugs out of it?



  47. Trevor J. Riches on October 27, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    Great video! …….what is the red dot sight you are using?…thanks!



  48. Jocose Sonata on October 27, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    Aww, no Terminator style one-handed reload?



  49. Duke Makedo on October 27, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    I don’t want to spend money on a long gun that lacks a stock.



  50. brad h on October 27, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    The music is killing me, man. There’s no need to have it playing for the whole video.
