I've read in some of the period hunting books recommendations to order a double rifle with non-rebounding locks, for the reason that they hit the primer stronger than rebounding locks, and so the rifle is much less likely to dry fire. The price of dry fire in a rifle, especially used on dangerous game, is of course much greater than in a shotgun. Apparently, many clients shared the belief, so the preference of non-rebounding locks might have been due to customer desires, rather than manufacturers'.

The Henry is an absolute beauty anyway.
