Are Volcanics & Henrys considered outside the realm of the WACA ?

Don't see any discussion, but at least Henrys seem to get into Winchester collections.

Are Volcanics a completely different breed and collector market ?

No not outside of the realm, but I would say that your run of the mill collector out there won't have to many if any at all. Would also say the trend in collecting more recently is more geared to the newer models, where as 50 years ago everyone was collecting the older models. Another reason there's not much discussion about them, you can't really find the ammunition to shoot them. They way more valuable and more likely to be wall-hung and admired. There is also way way less of them. You looking at guns in the few thousands where as later models are in the hundreds of thousands into the millions of productions numbers. Also factor in the survival rate.

I wouldn't say Volcanic & Henry collectors are a different breed but a more of a different subspecies.

Volcanic and Henry collectors are the sub-species with the deep pockets.
