Alexander Henry .360 Miniature Single Shot Rifle

This is a best quality Alexander Henry .360 Express single shot rifle.  The records show it was finished on April 12, 1880, so it is now almost 143 years old.  Fortunately, it has survived the years in wonderful condition.  I am the current caretaker since buying it at auction in early December 2022.

The rifle resides in its original full-length oak and leather case, lined in pigskin.  All the original tools and loading equipment remain.  The bullet mould and its hollow point pin are numbered to the rifle.  It has a 25" barrel and weighs a whopping 4 lbs., 12 oz.  It has an absolutely beautiful, mirror bright, perfect bore.  Henry rifling, of course.

It is astoundingly rare to find a complete cased set like this, still intact.  I am fortunate indeed!

It makes a great "little brother" companion for my Henry .450 single shot rifle.
