Ummmm, kinda old news.....from April 2019:

Ummm, no.
They had a few models with side gates, yes.
But never this many models.
Just announced yesterday, Nov. 23, 2020

Henry rifle stock has mysteriously dried up at all the stores for weeks if not months.
This is why.
The new models are starting to ship now, according to Henry.

Glad I couldn't find that (old model) Big Boy Steel 44 mag.
The new model will have faster twist, side gate and large loop (if I want).

I wasn’t trying to deflate you, your thread title says “Henry announces side loading gates” and I was pointing out that they have been out for a while. The additional models will certainly be welcome to Henry fans.

Yeah but it's American
So is Marlin and Mossberg?

I am hoping that Ruger decides to produce some octagon carbines - although I don't care for the Marlin '94. I would prefer they make a Model '92 - especially if they make it in .454 or even .460 (I don't think they will make it in .460; they can't bring themselves to produce anything in a S&W .460).

The BHA lever actions cost 2-3X more, but also shoot .460 mag

I am hoping for that Model '92 in 454. I would get one. I am getting the big lever sometime soon from BHA. (But I opted for the 500 S&W. Waiting on the email that tells me it is done.)

But I would, like Reno, LOVE a 327 federal side loading gate Henry (preferably threaded) 327 federal is absurdly fun in my TC encore, and the fact that you can shove practically any 32 caliber anything in there is pretty fun too. (Though accuracy is abysmal with 32acp in mine.)

I’ve shot the regular, it feeds pretty much any rimmed 32 cal.

I will get the 327 when it is a side gate. I may have to get it threaded, but that would be an excellen choice.

Well shoot (pun intended). I've always avoided looking at Henrys because tube fed was a deal breaker. Guess I can't use that excuse anymore. And just in time for Christmas too. Good timing on their part.

This seems to be a common thread for many.

Oddly. for me, it was never a consideration when I was thinking about a Henry and I had already owned many side gate rifles.
