I'm sure they will be very interested. They should also take care of you.
Glad you're ok.

Looking at the barrel, is that a too deep extractor cut?


guilty of white privilege : for 55 years I had the privilege to get up and go to work...to help feed the folks that wanted to sleep in.

Photo quality is so poor that it is hard to tell, but it appears that the outside of the barrel has been abused in that area.

I don't know about abused. I would assume the gas made it that dirty

Good Luck with Henry doing anything about it. I had one that was never right and they would not fix. Sent it in twice. Finally sent down the road.
