Henry Lever Action Rifle
Shim and Spring Kits

TECH TIP: Q) Will Your Shims Fit My Henry?

A) I make two different kits for Henry Rifles; One for the Small Frame .22 Rifle and one for the Large Frame Rifle.
The models known to fit are listed, if your model is not listed, I don't know if it will fit, you will have to measure your rifle pins and look at my shims sizes listed and decide yourself

Q) Do I Need Shims? A) That is for you or your Gunsmith to decide.... if there are parts in your rifle that are loose and rubbing, there may be some benefit, however adding a shim by itself is not going to reduce the pull of a Heavy Trigger without other work

Hey Lance, I finally had a chance to install the shims in my Henry Big Boy. I experimented with different sizes in each case, but ended up with 0.005” for the trigger, hammer, and lever. I know there’s such a thing as too tight and I believe I ended up with the perfect amount of play for all 3. I appreciate the quality of your shims and the care taken in labeling them.
Mike in Michigan

Hi Lance, I was really pleased with your product. I purchased a 6 Pak Kit / Lever Shim for my Henry 44 mag carbine. Came right away and I got a little lucky going with the .005 right away. Took me two minutes and it was perfect... just right. So glad I found you guys. All the best! ~ John in WA

Hi Lance, I received my order and have installed the lever shims and WOW, what a difference they have made on my Henry X Model!! Thanks again for the pleasant and prompt service!! ~ Jeff in Canada

TECH TIP - Henry Spring

TECH TIP: Reduced Trigger Pull using
Marlin Hammer Springs for Henry Big Boys

Good Afternoon Lance,
Big Mikes 30-30 Target Got the 30-30 shim kit (H006 / H009 / H010 / H012 Series) in the mail this week and installed it on my Henry. I was impressed how close the tolerances were once I ordered the correct kit for my rifle! Action was, if anything, smoother with shims installed on the trigger (2 x .007"), hammer (2 x .007"), and lever (2 x .003") than it had been with the other shims (from the H001 .22 kit) on.
I took it to the range today with the light "straight body" Wolff hammer spring installed. (Our # 33101) It fired factory ammo flawlessly but had one light primer strike early on with one of my reloads.
Rather than move up to the heavier Wolff "barrel body" (Our # 32501) spring I tried putting a brass #6 washer on each end of the straight spring to increase the tension very slightly, which worked like a champ; no more light strikes with any ammo.
According to my spring gauge adding those washers increased the trigger pull from 3 1/2# to about 3 3/4#. I wouldn't have believed a new spring, shims, and a couple of washers would improve that trigger so much.
I would definitely recommend the straight body Wolff (Marlin) spring for Henry 30-30 owners, with the caveat that they might want to have a couple of #6 washers on hand if their ammo has hard primers, or else move up to the Wolff "barrel body" (Our # 32501) spring with its 4.5# pull (and much harder hammer strike). I kept the original Henry Hammer Spring but with its 5.5# pull I doubt it'll ever go back on the rifle.
Thanks again for all your help with this project

Your Henry big boy shim kit worked great! I did have to make my own sacrificial assembly pin out of a bamboo skewer. Once my brother and son feel what it did for my rifle, I'll be ordering again for theirs. Made an already great rifle a little tighter and smoother, with an improved trigger pull. Thanks for your great customer service.

Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words give you a feeling. Republic is one of those words that makes me tight in the throat - the same tightness a man gets when his baby takes his first step or his first baby shaves and makes his first sound as a man. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne in the Alamo
