WV, Thank God!
I saw a review/rant recently that reported stocks splitting repeatedly on a couple of these, a .44 and a .45/70. The replacements split too. Anyone seen this?

Shame to hear about the weight and trigger.


Well, we don't rent pigs, and it's better to say it right up front because a man who does like to rent pigs is — well, he's hard to stop.

The pics were pretty scary. Gotta say that's the only mention of such a thing I've seen, but it's odd that two happened to one guy, then repeated. Maybe this had something to do with the long delay getting them to dealers. Hope it's a fluke.

If this splitting only happened to one guy, and it happened twice, it suggests that he has an agenda. He doesn't like Henry. Was the reviewer someone who posted on a hunting website?

Could you provide a link?

I'll look, but he had pics. Don't wait up; I'm old and easily distracted- look, a squirrel!

Didn't think of that.

Looked a bit yesterday, but nothing yet.

I handled a 243 yesterday. I thought there is no way that buttstock is going to split especially since the dimensions are pretty generous. The trigger while not fantastic appeared to be very very workable.


Bravo

I suspect Steelhead nailed it. Not gonna influence me about buying one, and neither will the trigger.

Lead sleds are notorious for cracking all kinds of stocks.

I love my 44 mag/ spc... and it shoots my cast loads surprisingly accurate... my only grievance is I don’t like the ambidextrous hammer spur.

I've read that replacing a spring will lighten the trigger somewhat, but that the springs must be purchased in a 10 pack. For those who have done this, anyone want to sell me a spring? You should have nine or so to spare.
