How well will a brass receiver hold up over time? Brass concerns me that it wouldn't hold up with lots of shooting. A Henry is an heirloom quality that I would expect to outlast me.
The Henry brass is hardened. It's not regular brass. Now, I don't abuse mine, but after 18 years it is in just as good condition as the day we brought it home.

Edited to add.... despite my complaints about the build quality of my Marlin, it remains one of my favorite rifles .... not so much because it’s a Marlin, but because it’s a lever action. If Henry ever comes out with a blued version of their side-loader, I’ll snap one up for sure.

The entire thing isn't blued, but still. Even Hickock liked it!
Yeah, it’s a nice rifle, but I just don’t care for the brass receiver look. That’s why I want an all blued version.
I get it. I have this one in .44 mag my wife gave me for our 10th Anniversary.

And this one I got from QB a year or two ago. Evil Roy in .22LR

I do have a plain blued one in .22LR, but it was my dad's garage gun and he didn't take care of it. Much rust and pitting. I'm not even sure it'll function properly any more. I thought about getting one of the stainless or chromed ones before I got the Evil Roy. Now, if I get another one it'll probably be all blued. They have several to choose from including shotguns. However, uh oh, look what I found.
