    not gonna happen. i've had correspondence with the henryUSA president and GM and they will not lighten either the trigger or hammer pull weights. this makes little to no sense for a single action hammer gun, where the gun will be perfectly safe...

    agreed. but i do believe that .22rf bpcr/tr events are still action specific and if one already has a .45 or .40 bpcr rifle one will prolly find a crosno or shaver liner to be more accurate than their eyes and trigger finger.

    that's a ridiculous amount of money for a .22 rimfire, but that's just my warped thinking i guess. i've used crossno and lee shaver liners - THEY is the way to go ... 'course, ya need a proper .45 or .40 rifle for starters. :)
