- Great Quality - Accurate Yes / No (review by Dennis on 11/25/2015)
This rifle came with well matched wood and is very well crafted and fitted. It is a very good looking rifle and has the smoothest action of any lever gun that I have ever owned. After getting used to the sights and
trigger pull I was shooting raisin size groups at 25 yards with the Skinner peep sights using match ammo.
Now the reason for 4 stars. One of the reasons that I bought this rifle was because of the Skinner sights. However, even tho' I was shooting tight groups the sights could not be adjusted to the point of aim. At 25 yards. I was shooting four inches high and there is no more vertical adjustment remaining in the rear peep sight.
The GOOD news is that the folks at Henry RA sent me a return repair label and the rifle is now back at Henry and I am sure that they will repair or replace anything that is wrong with the rifle.
Otherwise I am very happy with this purchase. Also, CenterfireGuns has the best price/shipping that I could find on this model of Henry Rifle after shopping around for one.
