I was having some trouble with my Henry recently when the lever started feeling "rough" when chambering rounds. I was also getting a lot of FTF/FTEs. I'm pretty religous about cleaning it and do it according to the owner's manual which tells you NOT to take anything apart (the action in particular) so I had no idea what the problem was.

I brought it to Mike at South Shore (where I bought it) and I'm happy to say Mike and Anthony took a good half hour of their time in helping me find out what the problem was. The personal service was excellent. It turns out there was sand in the action and Mike explained that one grain is enough to screw up the extractor. I asked him how it even got in there and he said a good breeze would do it. Unfortunately, during cease fires actions have to be open and the gun off the table so I guess the wind was the reason (I've never dropped the gun on the ground).

I'm glad the problem was so easily fixed because I wasn't into having my baby shipped back to New Jersey for an overhaul. Thanks for the learning experience guys. I appreciate your time and effort in helping me out. :)

I love that place.  The only thing that sucks about going there is fighting the temptation of buying something substantial every time I walk in.  I think I was there at the same time if you were there Saturday.  Anthony knows I want to buy a 1911.  I was there for something else but he could not resist putting a SIG in my hand.  Bastard!!! :)

Yep. I've been caught up by "Stan the Mat Roller" on more than one occasion. ;) ;)

Jeff, that was my Sinatra impersonation. You get in, you compliment the broad and you get out. That way no one loses an eye. Oops. Sorry Sammy. (Ubiquitous Sammy Davis Jr reference).

If I was Cary Grant, I'd say "glocky ... Glocky ... Glocky".

A breeze?
Or it could be that when you go up to check your targets sand is mysteriously introduced.
Did you even wonder what I was doing with that shovel and funnel?

Ah ha! "You checking your target Joe?" "Nah. I'm good. You go ahead."

Keep an eye on that Sako buddy. :whistle

Thanks doctor. He's just like new again. :) Next time I take him out to Calverton I'm going to wrap a bandana around him during cease fires. It may not be 100% but it'll be better than nothing. That tip came from our friend Aquabach. Thanks Jeff. :)
