O ring dimensions for inner magazine tube

Post by shootinthecinders » Sun Nov 10, 2019 2:47 pm

I think some members have requested the o ring dimensions for the .22 lr inner magazine tube. Henry usually supplies these when they are asked; but in case you ever need one right away, the dimensions are 5/16” ID X 7/16” OD X 1/16” Wall thickness.
They can be picked up at any hardware store that supplies o rings and you can customize them by your choice of materials.

I tried finding one at a couple different hardware stores and couldn't find one to fit so I called Henry customer service and the person answering the phone offered to send me a new magazine tube which I declined and asked for an O ring. I received 2 O rings at no cost. Great customer service as always.

How often do they fail?
Mine is still original.

It's not failing that was a problem it was the ring popping off the rifle in the bag and not noticing until you go to load and can't find the o-ring.

Tim, are we talking about the O ring right above the mag tube latch? If so, I don't understand how it could just fall off.
Sorry, maybe I'm confused.

I believe it is because the design is cheap.
Never have had the problem in my Marlin tube feeder rimfires.

Hmm...guess it would be a good idea to have a spare or two on hand.
Seems like it would have to actually break, to fall off.

.
Depends on the Henry rifle model. Some of them have a deeper grove the o-ring sits in. Others there is very little keep in place like when pulling the rifle out of a scabbard or gun bag. The o-ring gets rubbed off.
