I called Henry first to confirm that their new break barrel rifle in 223 Remington also fires 5.56 NATO. It does.
Then I called CVA to ask them to
make Hunter do the same. They no longer make it in 223. That is a shame. It is such a great Rifle.
I luckily have one.
The rep said they have meetings on offerings every week.
I prefer the build of the Hunter. It is light, compact and perfectly balanced. It is a fine rig. The trigger? Amazing.
And honestly, is in all ways better than 5.56 except for raw power.
The 223 Wylde barrel came up too.
