Well, some of us are a whole lot older than that. I think Bob might have actually fought in the civil war
You know how I am with tools. No pain was inflicted intentionally.

Have not shot it in a while, but maybe it is time.
Not a big fan of the notch and blade sights on these carbines. That is the biggest weakness imo.

What type do you have? Did you have to drill and tap the receiver?

Two holes on the left side of the receiver.
Sight is made by Redfield and looks about as old as the rifle itself.
One gripe though, I had to cut grooves in the hammer to cock it when in halfcock, not much clearance from the sight.
I'll get some pics up soon.
Hope you can see it, old camera.
I think Natchez Shooting Supply sells a similar one, Midway as well.

Thanks. I'll take a look.
Have too many projects right, but I can always stick them in a drawer for 'some day'.

When I dismounted the rifle to check it out, I moved my hand, the follower snapped down, and I was back in business. I took off the glove and finished the day without a hiccup. I've heard this happens sometimes when people shoot off the bench, but why anyone would be shooting such a fun rifle from the bench, I have no idea. Some get nervous about standing it up and looking down towards the muzzle to load it, I've heard rumors about some indoor ranges not allowing them for that reason, there is some disadvantage to loading the magazine like a musket.
That was my only experience, a fun rifle, but not for me. But then, Mrs. Hotleads Winny '92 isn't for me either, or any straight grip with a lever loop the size of a pair of scissors.
Your mileage may vary. If it shoots well for you, or even if it doesn't, and you want it, that's all the reason you need to get it.

Henrys are good rifles, I own a Golden Boy. They are just not out there though in the same numbers as the Winchester though.
