Work on a Henry H001


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I have a Henry H001 that i have had for a very long time and really shes my 22lr go to gun! She has a slick action, feed what ever i give her from CB shorts to stingers. The other day i was cleaning it and i decided to completely disassemble it. I noticed that most of the parts still have casting marks all over them so i stoned every part and did it make a world of difference! She was smooth before but now shes like glass!

Yep, they are fun little guns. I've done the same, however, couldn't stop there so I did a bit more:

* ordered a metal barrel band and 'old style' front sight
* stripped the paint off the receiver and barrel band
* coated them with LustreKote flat clear (to stop oxidizing)
* removed the forearm and added some tape 'pads' to stop rattle
* d&t the cover for a Williams FP 94/36 TK sight
* narrowed the front sight to .110" wide
* installed a Youth length stock (same length as a Win 92 carbine)
* applied scratch-x to spiff up the finish.



I've got about 4,000rds through mine and with the Williams sight it's amazing how well it does at 100, 150, and 175yds!!! Also, many people think that the Youth stock is a shortened version of a carbine stock, however, it's really the correct length for a carbine while the std stock is longer than a rifle's.

Std Henry stock compared to 357mag Rossi 24" rifle and 20" carbine:



Note that the Henry's stock is longer than both the Win '92 carbine and rifle length stocks. Even with my long arms, at 5'9" I find that I have to stretch my neck with the std stock to get my head into a natural shooting position.

Henry's Youth stock compared to 357mag Rossi 24" rifle and 20" carbine:



Note here that the Youth length is actually very close to the length of a Win '92 carbine's. If you get to try a Youth model at a gunshop, you'll note that you can pull it in tight to you and you don't have to stretch your neck to get your eye up close to the sight where it belongs.

I think that the Youth length looks more 'natural' on the Henry and I know that it's easier to position your head naturally to the sights. BTW, I've sent this info to Henry for their use.
