Still looking for some of the brass made with the offset primer hole for 44 Henry!

Jay these are really hard to find.  I only have 2 that I can reload.  The one company RCC that supposedly said they make them hasn’t come through the last few years.  The older ones like I have are made from S&W 44 Special brass.  The primer pocket is filled in with metal of some sort and a hole is offset for the installation of a 22 blank.  You might be better off buying a repo firing pin and striker that could be modified to center fire.

I totally understand.  Here is a picture of my Henry when I took it apart to replace a broken piece.

Well, my work space is actually my desk with a pad.  I keep it neat and organized so I can put the pieces back together.  I have some info somewhere that said this rifle had a sling but it disappeared before I found it.  The paperwork also has a note, un-confirmed, what unit the individual served with in the Civil War.
