Hickok45 Review Of The New Henry Side Loader

About twice as long as it needs to be but take note at about 14.05 when he references unloading it by the tube and a round hanging up behind the load gate. I wasn't too impressed by seeing him having to tap the barrel on the bench to free it. Maybe pushing a finger into the gate would do it as well but that wasn't mentioned.
Also back up to 13.23 when he is loading and seating the tube - notice him 'hammering' the tube by hand a couple times to clear the rims of the rounds?
I am basically impressed with it however both of these issues, as well as the the argument of it eliminating having to cycle the action to unload a typical side loader are not enough to overcome what I see as problems with the 'dual load' system.
