I don't know what they did there was no info in the message. I hope they give details in a note with the gun. I am impressed with the quick turn around. Looking forward to having a reason to go shoot it. Not that it takes much of a reason to shoot.
Don't expect to much of an explanation. My guess is they will list it as "fixed trigger spring problem".

Yeah, that wouldn't surprise me. But I would like details. And I guarantee that if the spring bends again my next letter will go straight to Mr. Imperato.

If it works send him an email thanking him and I bet you will get a free hat or coffee cup.

I got her back this afternoon. The note with it said they replaced the trigger and the bolt. I knew I had a problem with the trigger but not the bolt. There was no explanation of what was wrong with the bolt, it just said replaced bad bolt. Also the carrier looks new. They lubed the snot out of it, it was dripping. It does cycle smoother than before. I am going to try to get to the range tomorrow. I want to test fire it and the 10/22.

Can't wait for the range report. So what is the trigger pull like now?

I can't tell much difference in the trigger. It feels maybe a little stiffer, there is almost no travel before it breaks. After the break there is a lot of travel.

How long did it take for the prior springs to bend?

I had the gun about three months before I noticed the original was bent. Replaced it in July and didn't break it down again till I started this thread so that was six months. So I don't really know when it started to bend. I will be checking it more frequently now. I did remove the hammer and look it over today and noticed when I squeezed the trigger back that the end of the spring started to slide on the frame. So I pushed it down with a punch so the spring was straight and the end was flush on the receiver frame. Then kept tension on it till I got the hammer back in.

I took the Henry and the 10/22 to the range Friday and I love shooting that little gun. The trigger feels good really crisp break. I shot a mix of rounds through it. CCI mini mags, CB shorts, and CCI Long 29 gr.
I wanted to be sure it would cycle everything with the new bolt. Not a single hiccup, I shot it with the red dot on it and it was dead on from the last time I adjusted it . Have I mentioned how much fun this little gun is?

First 5 rounds at 15 yards sitting off hand. Mini Mags.


Still sitting some off hand got a bit wobbly, then I moved it out to 20 yards rested the fore end and just had fun making a big hole.

They sure are a lot of fun. The stock triggers sure are crisp even if a tad heavy. Are you going to try the trick with the spring? I have an extra one I can mail to you.

I may just contact Henry again and ask for a spare. I found a source for them online but can't find the link right now. Thanks for the offer but for now I will leave it as is.
