The people I've dealt with at Henry have been polite and helpful but they didn't fix the trigger. I emailed the boss at Henry and got another shipping label sent but I don't plan to send it back again. Eventually some one is going to market an aftermarket spring/trigger kit and there will also be YouTube fixers etc.

I'm stubborn enough to figure this thing out....I'll just leave the Dremel tool and bastard files in the drawer! From what I can find out over at Cast Boolits it's a relatively simple design with no flying springs or slave pins needed etc. It's a nice little rifle and I'm planning to keep it.

Also...got an email from a lady at Henry asking my shirt size. Maybe Mr. Imperato is going to send me a t-shirt for my trouble?

Edit to add...Lady at Henry said send it back again and it will be fixed right this time. I can't fault any of the cust. service people I've dealt with at Henry. They could maybe fire their lawyer though...

Update: The .44 came back yesterday and the note stated they "replaced trigger guard assembly". The assembly must include trigger and sear because now this gun has no creep at all in the pull. It's still a little too heavy but shootable and the guy at Wolff springs said they'd be looking into a spring kit. I got a gift pack from Anthony and even that stuff was made in USA.

I've never before encountered customer service people that worked this hard to make things right. Now I may have to check out that little blued Big Boy carbine in .41 mag....

Awesome folks to deal with, glad it's working out for you.
Made in America or not made at all.

I ended up getting a spring kit from this guy at Cast Boolits and put the lightest of the three springs in today. Haven't gone to the range yet but trigger pull just a few ounces more than RCBS 4 1/2 lb. gauge and trigger has no creep. Hope to use it on a whitetail next month.

Glad it seems to have worked. I have no stake in it, but he seems like a good guy and on the same page as you with these rifles.

Let us know how that kit helped when you get a chance to shoot it.

I ran 70 rounds through this .44 at the range and am completely happy with the results. Cocking effort is much reduced, primer hits are plenty deep with no more pierced primers and lock time doesn't seem to be slowed at all. I can actually hit pretty good shooting offhand with it now that I'm no longer struggling with the heavy trigger.

The 1-20" twist does a good job with LBT 320 gr. GC's at 1370 fps with group in an inch from a rest at 50 yards. Lyman 255's and 240 XTP's also will go inside an inch at 50 yards. Got some more experimenting to do with the 310 Lee which was more like 3".

Interesting that this gun is throated deep enough that the long Lee and LBT bullets can be seated out in the bottom groove. The loads shot thus far were deep seated....it never occurred to me to try seating them long on the first loads but now for the next range session I've got a few seated out.

I plan to deer hunt with this gun but have no intention of trying to load hot stuff. I'm thinking that mid-range loads out of the 22" barrel will match full house revolver velocities and that's plenty for the cedar swamp where 75 yards is a long shot.

Mostly looking forward to low cost and low recoil cast plinking loads and ringing the swinger.

My family has been the beneficiaries of Mr Imperato's
generosity. Henry is what a company should be.
I am having trouble getting my dream gun from my dealer and
dread asking for his help again as I know he has to be
seriously busy !!! ....But I know he will get it to me if I
ask and I am nobody special .......just some bum off the
street.
Amazing ......
I prefer Marlins loading system but Henry has made a fan
of me ........

Over this past Summer my local gun shop/hardware store, A.F.
Boyer, celebrated their 150th anniversary. They have been
continuously owned and run by the same family since 1868 and
Henry sent them a one of a kind commemorative lever action they
now proudly display in a case on the wall.
