RICE LAKE, Wis., July 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Henry Repeating Arms Company announced that it is voluntarily recalling all H015-series Single Shot Rifles and Single Shot Shotguns manufactured prior to July 1, 2020. Henry has recently discovered a potential safety issue wherein, under certain conditions, it is possible that some of these models may discharge without the trigger being pulled if the hammer is partially cocked and released. To prevent the possibility of death or serious personal injury, you should immediately stop using all H015-series Single Shot Rifles and Single Shot Shotguns and not load or fire them until they have been upgraded.

Henry Repeating Arms Brass Single Shot Rifle (top) and Steel Single Shot Shotgun (bottom). All H015 models are affected by a new voluntary safety recall.
Henry Repeating Arms Brass Single Shot Rifle (top) and Steel Single Shot Shotgun (bottom). All H015 models are affected by a new voluntary safety recall.
The safety issue leading to this voluntary recall was discovered internally while testing the existing fire control system for a trigger pull upgrade. This is the first product safety recall in the company's nearly 25-year history. Although not every Henry H015-series firearm may be affected, Henry Repeating Arms is requesting that all Single Shot Rifles and Single Shot Shotguns be returned to be upgraded free of charge pursuant to this recall to prevent the possibility of the firearm discharging without the trigger being pulled. All H015 owners should visit the Henry H015 Recall website at HenryUSA.com/recall, email recallhenryusa.com, or call 1-866-200-2354 (M-F, 9am ET-5pm ET) to obtain additional information and begin the upgrade process.

Henry Repeating Arms will upgrade all returned Single Shot Rifles and Single Shot Shotguns in the order in which they are received. Henry Repeating Arms is ready to begin performing the upgrade as the firearms are received. Information on the current turnaround time for firearms returned to be upgraded will be provided at HenryUSA.com/recall. Henry Repeating Arms will make every effort to minimize the amount of time required to upgrade and return your firearm. As a sign of appreciation to its customers, Henry Repeating Arms will also perform an unrelated performance upgrade to improve the trigger pull on all firearms returned pursuant to this recall free of charge.

Kind of interesting that this is their first recall in their 25 year history.

Whoops! Given their good record, they certainly get a thumbs up. The fact that they are throwing in a free trigger adjustment is great PR and further evidence that they do care about their customers.


Safe Shooting!

I just picked up my first Henry, a 223, about a month ago. Glad to see they're being upfront with it and taking care of the issue.


The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me.

Hope the trigger upgrade makes it a lot lighter. I changed the springs in mine and polished the contact surfaces. Filled out the online form this morning, so waiting on the shipping box. Which comes with a label, I hope. Henry has always been good in the past. Superb customer service in addition to what I think are fine firearms.

Sent my form in last night. Putting my factory spring back in, removing the scope, and hammer extension today.

Not going to bother with putting the factory spring back in. I've got eight more.of the lighter ones. Had sent one to someone. I'm sure Henry knows people have changed out the spring and polished the surfaces. That is probably why they have done research into the trigger group and discovered the possible problem. They can't refuse to do the recall as it isn't a warranty issue. It is a safety/liability issue.

I bought the spring to do the replacement, then the recall was announced. Guess I'll let them do the trigger now and if I still don't like it I can always replace the spring then.

I bought a slightly used one in 30-30 on Wednesday and got the email Friday about the recall.
