    Adam, that was the best Henry Ad I've seen in years....and I'm saying that from the heart.

    Right now, the way Remington is going, I'd place all my bets on manufacturing parts for Marlins, affectionately called Remlins.

    Yes, all Marlin centerfire lever guns use the same trigger parts regardless of caliber, with the likely exception of pre-war models.

    Believe me, we will continue to put plenty of energy into the Marlin market, but honestly, "Remlin" quality has neither helped nor hurt our parts business. I'm confident we've sold far more parts to JM owners, and those rifles are unquestionably well made. Marlins owners, as a breed, just seem more comfortable putting a bit of money into their guns, where Henry owners seem reluctant. Just is what it is.

While the trigger design would be easy enough to improve, unless the Henry is quite a bit easier to work on, most folks would have to pay a 'smith to install an aftermarket trigger. Not necessarily a deal breaker, but it adds a deterrent to sales.

    Understood, Adam.

    FWIW, Henry's Single Shot trigger pull ranges from 7lbs to near 9lbs although has a clean crisp break. The hammer pull to cock is very strong as well. I haven't got into the trigger well enough to comment of it's design but researching it I learned a bit about it.

    The trigger pull and hammer cock is controlled by two springs, one large diameter and one small diameter within the former and kept inside a tube. Apparently, someone figured out Grainger sells a lighter compression spring that is the same dimension of Henry's larger spring. Changing that spring lowers both the hammer cock and trigger pull to roughly 5 to 6 lbs depending upon your triggers beginning pull weight. Changing the springs takes less than 30 minutes and appears an easy job.

    As I understand it, the smaller diameter inner spring ensures the hammer doesn't drop should the rifle drop. By simply removing this smaller spring it lower the trigger pull to around 3lbs.

    Grainger's sells the spring as a set of ten springs which you only need one. Regarding the design of Henry's trigger, I haven't evaluated it nor do I know what would involved in R&R. I'm just thinking it may be an opportunity for your wizardry.

    I have no idea how many folks eliminate the small spring but Henry's lawyers apparently felt it necessary. I'm not inclined to hunt with the hammer cocked and bought my in 308WIN to finish off my 30 cal bullet offering. I'll remove the small spring for shooting at the bench.

    I'll send you the links to what I found, they're short reads and you can further evaluate whether it's a worthy project.
