I sure will. I have no idea how long it will take as sometimes Andy has to make them when ordered. But It will be worth the wait.

Are you going to have to swap out the front sight also? I have also recently purchased the same sight but have not gotten around to installing it on my .44.

I'm guessing the sight has already shipped. We really do try to keep the Skinner Henry "BIG BOY EXPRESS" sights in stock. They are VERY Popular, as are the Henry Rifles. I have a .44 Mag (pictured) and it shoots GREAT. Accurate, feeds like butter, trigger pull acceptable, no issues at all. How does the brass hold up? Just fine... You wont wear it out.

Front sight? As always, there are so many variants (Rifle characteristics, Load Selection, Shooter) we can't say for sure if a front sight change will be needed. (Mine needed about a .050" taller front sight with fairly standard Magnum loads and with me shooting it) Many customers report that it has worked with the factory front sight, others have needed a change. (Please see the first couple questions on our FAQ page and the STICKY titled "Will this sight work with my factory front sight" in the Skinner Sights section of the INDUSTRY PARTNERS listed here on Marlin Owners)

For what its worth.... EVERY Henry Rifle I own works wonderfully well. They are all accurate, well fit, have great wood, and Henry's Customer Service is A+++

got it on and it fit perfect. I need to shoot it to see if the front sight is tall enough.

Finally got out this week and shot it. Glad to say it worked with the original front sight. I did have to adjust the peep down to the lowest possible setting but it worked great. Verry happy. This combo is too much fun for words.

Glad to hear it worked out so nice for you Amos
I never owned a Henry but they seem well made...

What caliber is yours in? What kind of accuracy are you getting and what type ammo are you using?

Thanks n Enjoy! :tee:
