The Henry rifle was the first repeating firearm rifle produced by the New Haven Repeating Arms Co. The New Haven Repeating Arms Co. was originally the Volcanic Repeating Arms Co. which was founded by Horace Smith and Daniel Wesson in 1855 but the Volcanic was not popular as the special self contained cartridge was not liked.
Oliver F. Winchester was a successful clothing manufacturer who had invested in the Volcanic Repeating Arms Co. eventually bought out Smith's and Wesson's interests in the company. Winchester reorganised the company and held onto the Chief foreman Benjamin Tyler Henry.
This Army Colt Model 1860 revolver replica features:

The .44 calibre Colt Army percussion revolver was widely used in the American Civil War (A.C.W.) and it continued in service with the US Army after the war and in particular the US Cavalry on the Indian plains. During the Civil War and afterwards with the US Army there was not a standardisation of weapons and various pistols would be used within the same unit.

The revolver .44-caliber “Army" Model was one of the most widely-used revolvers of the Civil War. It had a muzzle-loaded cap & ball, six-shot, rotating cylinder, and fired a 0.454-inch diameter round lead ball, or a conical projectile, that was propelled by a 30 grain charge of black powder ignited by a copper percussion cap that contained a volatile charge of fulminate of mercury (a substance that explodes upon impact). The percussion cap, when struck by the hammer, ignited the powder charge.
