Not all firearms need to fit neatly into categories like hunting, home protection, or good ol’ backyard plinking. 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’s fun, for sure, but it also has more practicality than meets the eye. The Axe has the same 5-round capacity of 2 ½” shells as its larger Henry Lever Action .410 Shotgun counterparts, and the inclusion of a side loading gate means that you can keep that capacity topped off at all times without needing to remove the tube magazine. Another practical advantage is its size. With a barrel length of just under 16” and an overall length of just over 26” the Axe can be stored in far more places than your average shotgun. The barrel is topped off with a brass bead front sight, or a super bright fiber optic bead on the X Model variant, and the muzzle end is internally threaded for invector style chokes. A full choke is included right out of the box. Additional chokes and accessories are available at HenryOutfitters.com. 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. Speaking of Henry class, the Axe .410 is available in three iconic finishes. For those who prefer the look and feel of genuine American walnut, there’s a choice between a polished hardened brass receiver or a matte blued steel receiver.

And then there’s the X Model version, which sports black synthetic furniture laden with mounts to configure the firearm however you see fit. There is a section of Picatinny rail at the 6 o’clock position on the forearm and two M-LOK slots are found at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions.

For the serious task of home defense and property protection, or the less-serious task of just having fun at the range, the Lever Action Axe .410 deserves a spot in your safe.
