while they come as no surprise, such positive reports are always great to hear .... looking forward to your range and use impressions once you have her back

Please keep us posted. I'm curious if it was the tube vs the carrier.

You can email ask. They answered me when I did for my repair.

... warranty page does not have any corrective action listed, I guess I will have to wait and see what is on the repair order in the box.

Got my BBX back today. I found a note in the box, they “replaced the lever and inner mag tube, adjusted carrier and side gate, polished feed ramps and checked over rifle”.

I loaded up my dummy rounds and they cycle through like butter, snick snick snick. I haven’t tried any other ammo. The side gate is a little easier to use, I did mention that issue. It is still pretty stiff and awkward.

One thing puzzles me, why change the lever? And look at these pics, there are two ground down areas that are obviously done by the smith, since they were raw and rather nasty looking IMHO. I dressed them with a flat stone and blued the steel to prevent any future rusting.

Any ideas what those extra things are for?

Also, I checked the trigger with my Lyman gauge and I am not real happy, but the gun is not going back for this....

I can’t access a range to test the rifle, everything is locked down tight.

Finally, no gift was included, though I was excited to see a Henry card envelope, but inside, all it said was thank you, no prize or discount card. I wouldn’t have minded a Henry ball cap....
