said that the recall on the single shot rifles has created a back log
that's certainly understandable .... I also understand your desire to have it back as quickly as is possible .... my bet is they have refined the process and have a good number of folks working on them .... :)

I had a problem with the barrel on my BBS .357 last spring. The first time the rifle went to Henry it was back in 10 days. Unfortunately that barrel also had problems and was at Henry for 7 weeks because of the covid and recall. I believe it would have been longer but I emailed Anthony and Henry fixed it and shipped with in 2 days. I do not like to have to send back guns to the manufacturer but Henry finally fixed the problem. Hang in there if you are not in a hurry but an email to Anthony may speed things up. Looking forward to a range report.

Well....., after more than 3 months, I received an e-mail that my rifle is being replaced. Looking forward to receiving it and getting out to the range. I will post an update on results.

It is a long time to wait on a return just to have the rifle replaced. I hope the new rifle's accuracy lives up to your expectations. Looking forward to your range report.

UPS delivered new gun yesterday. Nice grain. I got a scope mounted (necessity with 73 year old eyes). May shoot today if range doesn't have several inches of mud.

Trusting that my first one was an anomaly. Nephew has one in .44 mag that is a great shooter.

Will share results.

Made it to the range this morning. Day/night difference between this replacement rifle and the first one.

I was able to try a few different loads and it definitely prefers heavier bullets. 180 grain cast wide flat point bullets over max load of 2400 had all touching at 50 yards. Several other loads shot well, but this was the most accurate.

I'll continue to experiment with it. I want to try some 158 and 180 grain XTPs on my next outing. Will try the 100 yard range also.

I am well pleased!!
