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?


What fresh Hell is 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!

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.

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

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.
