.410 is too small for most game, but I wonder if it would be a good home defense weapon when loaded with the .410 buckshot rounds developed for the Taurus Judge or slugs?

I don't know if a lever would be preferential over a pump for home defense... but that's me.

Yeah, a lever 410 falls into the 'cool but not very useful' category, for the most part. I'm sure it would do great as a 'snake charmer' on that western ranch.

At a gunshow recently I saw an older, heavy, lever action 10 gauge, just over 1k on the listed price. Again, maybe somewhat cool, but no comparison to my Benelli M2 for versatility.

Winchester started building a lever action model 9410 about 20 or so years ago ,
most of them are still on the gun store shelves unsold .
You can pick up a pretty damn nice shotgun without a lever on it for close to a grand.
Brand new Mossberg 500's in .410 can be had for around $300 leaving you a spare $500 over this Henry.

I don't think you'll see many of these 410 Henry's
So if your looking for a rare limited edition gun you can buy now , you've found it .

This is a decent write-up on using a 410 defensively

Excluding competition skeet and close range pest control I can see very little use in the 410 caliber. A lever action in .357, 45 Colt or 44 mag would be a better home defense choice when considering a lever action.

I'm actually looking for a .410 shotgun for my FIL... he doesn't have the strength to lock and load his PT92, so I let him fool with my Mossberg 500. He liked it except for the weight, so I suggested the 500 home defense (SP?) the one with the forward pistol grip and muzzle brake. The .410 shotgun has it's place, for sure.

When I was growing up, my cousin went shooting with us.. and had his dad's bolt action .410 shotgun. Never saw one before, and never since.

I use a .410 around the farm for daylight pest control (after dark it is a 20 ga).
The price on that Henry is just way out of my range.
I have an old Mossberg bolt action, a NEF Pardner single shot, and a Stoeger SXS double. I think I'm well covered in .410.

But that Henry sure looks nice!

Nice looking weapons. I hope there is a niche in the market for them to fill.

Nice looking shot guns. May have to have one. I've got plenty of squirels that need to go by by.

Henry

I looked at their lever gun and see that it is only offered for 2 1/2 shells, I think that is what killed the Winchester and this will kill the Henry….The 3 inch is just a little better Squirrel and rabbit load and much more people are familiar with it.

Thanks from Dozermonkey

I like what the writer says about no recoil and being just right for small-framed people.
And I can assure you from my experience as an ER doctor, a .410 makes a nice hole. It will open up a cute little 1/2 inch entry and a bloody mess 2 inch exit.
As for pump vs lever, the time you spend training is important. Those lever actions can fire fast in practiced hands.
While a 12 gauge might be my first choice, a .410 has a respectable place at the table.
