Henry recently joined the ever-growing list of companies to jump on one of the fastest-growing calibers in the industry, the 6.5 Creedmoor. That’s right. The long-range specialist 6.5 Creedmoor is coming to the Long Ranger lever-action rifle.
The Long Ranger 6.5 Creedmoor adds yet another versatile cartridge to Henry’s long-range specialist lever-action line. Delivering traditional lever-action operation, all Long Ranger rifles sport an exposed hammer and forged steel lever. A six-lug rotary bolt head provides solid lockup into the barrel extension. Side ejection, a drilled and tapped top for scope mounts and steel bodied magazine provide the components hunters need.
Long Ranger 6.5 Creedmoor Features
The new 6.5 Creedmoor variant utilizes a 22-inch blued steel sporter barrel. Moreover, the barrel is free floated to help get the most out of this popular long-range cartridge. Additionally, figured grain American walnut comprises the buttstock and forend, maintaining a timeless look and feel.
The Long Ranger 6.5 Creedmoor features a four-round magazine capacity. Also, the rifle weighs in at seven pounds and has an overall length of 42.5 inches.
Above all, the Long Ranger is designed as a long-range lever-action, and the 6.5 Creedmoor should add to that capability considerably. With a lockup similar to bolt-action rifles, a free-float barrel, one long enough to burn powder, and with a weight that should contribute to steady shooting, this model should appeal to anyone looking to take a lever-action to extended ranges.
