Not all firearms need to fit neatly into categories like hunting, home protection, or good ol’ backyard plinking. We feel that simply being fun to pull out of the scabbard and shoot again and again should be a category all its own. For those that join us in considering this an important category, the Lever Action Axe .410 delivers in spades.
It iss fun, for sure, but it also has more practicality than meets the eye. The Axe has the same 5-round capacity of 2 ½ inch shells as its larger Lever Action .410 Shotgun counterparts, but the addition of a loading gate means that you can keep that capacity topped off at all times without needing to remove a tube magazine. Another practical advantage is its size. With a barrel length of just under 16 inches and an overall length of just over 26 inches the Axe can be stored in far more places than your average long gun. The barrel is finished off with a brass bead front sight and invector style threads that are fitted with a removable full choke right out of the box. The “axe handle” pistol grip gives the firearm its name and is engraved on the bottom with the iconic Henry Cowboy logo for that unmistakable touch of Henry class.
Even if you have a packed gun safe with all bases covered, the Lever Action Axe .410 is sure to put a smile on your face that won’t leave until the magazine is empty. Henry also manufactures the lever action X-410 shotgun.
Per the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosive’s Gun Control Act of 1968, the H018AH-410 Lever Action Axe .410 is classified as a non-Class 3/NFA firearm. Please consult local/state laws that may prohibit the sale of this gun in your state despite its federal classification.
