    Our ACE Hardware has an excellent selection of O-rings as well as many auto parts stores.

    When I push the rod it doesn't really give. As Goldtrigger said, it is all in the O-ring. A thinner O-ring would make it easier to lock. I'll look into that.

    I would send her back to the mother ship. I understand that Henry gives great customer service.

    I agree with Mark. You have a chance to get it fixed right and not have to mess with it anymore. It will cost you zero $$. If you made a product and someone who bought it was having a problem wouldn't you want to make it right?

    Send it back, they have a fast turn around. I had to send one of mine in for some minor adjustments, think I had it back in 8 days or so.

    I posted about the same problem on a 45.70. I found it was the outer tube was deformed at the receiver, probably happened at test fire, and wasn’t caught. When I got it, had to use pliers to remove the inner tube. Henry sent me another tube, didn’t help. I took it back and got a BLR instead. Action is lots smoother too.

    This is interesting, mine is very easy to open. Secure, but if you push and pull on the end of the tube you can move the inner mag tube ever so slightly forward and back when it is latched
