Haven't done it, but according to the book you just drive out the pin. Not interchangeable as yet. For $400, not a big deal for me. I certainly don't NEED anymore rifles as things are getting out of hand as it is. Have enough stuff on hand to feed this one for "free" for the duration.
If not for the pile of components, it'd been a .30/30 or .357.
SSs appeal to me for several reasons, most of which have been talked to death here and elswhere. One either "gets it" or not. This one balances well, and is obviously put together pretty well. If it shoots well, it'll be a winner, to me anyway. If the SS, or break-open SS doesn't appeal to you, it matters not.
When we got home from the pawpaw patch this afternoon, the package from Graingers containing the trigger springs was on the porch.
Five minutes, max, from almost 8 pounds to between 4.5 and 4.75. I left the inner spring out as it's quite a bit shorter than the outer one. Gotta check for reliable ignition. Cocking effort is way down. Range tomorrow or Thursday.
I saw my first Henry SS rifles yesterday. One was a really pretty 223. At $299 it was calling me pretty hard until I came across the Tikka. The wood had surprisingly nice character and the bluing had a nice luster as well.
Just got back from the range. Pretty pleased with the results. First three shots at 50 to check bore-sighting were touching (168 Matchkings, 42gr RL15, CCI BR2). Adjusted the scope and went to 100.
Not easy to hold on the target I brought with the little 2.5, but the first three 165gr ABs went right at 1". Tried to add a couple, but that spread out to just under 2". Put it up to cool while I shot something else.
Went back to the Sierras. First 3 went 1 3/16". Switched to the next target and put 3 in 1/2". A fluke no doubt, but still nice. Maybe after hunting season I'll put a little more glass on it and see what's what, or maybe try one of my homemade open squares instead of the 8" black with 1.5" red center. Regardless, it definitely made the cut for the purpose I bought it for.
Showed it to a couple guys who never heard of the SS Henrys. Both were pretty impressed with what $400 will buy. Me too.
