Enjoy your Henry. The wood is what cause my attention as well. I have a 2015 H009 that I bought new in 2017, and I have not had any loosing issues. Yet, I have only shot about 150 or so rounds through it. But, I am happy with it so far. I added a Cloverleaf rear peep sight, and it works well out to 100 yards. So, it is good to go. Happy shooting!
