I believe every hammer gun has a safety now. Something to do with Lawyers I think.

Too soon old . . . Too late smart.

I could be wrong (not unusual!), but I think the safety is required on all imported guns, but not on USA made guns. Maybe only applies to long guns and not handguns.

If it were only a lawyer induced item then you would think the H&R would have had one added to it.

Oh well, if they are made as well as the Pardner Pumps, I can see having one or two at some point. If but to preserve my now out of print H&R's LOL!

Had been wanting to get various H&R's with plastic stocks. All the one's I have are wood... always liked the wood better for looks... but for in the field I'm good with plastic.

But I'd be a sight bit happier if they had just kept production here in the US and left the design alone, or perhaps even reverted it to the old rebounding hammer design... and changed those pins out for real screws...

The new Henry single shots that are coming out don't have external safeties, just a good old-fashioned rebounding hammer. I have a Henry lever action .22, that just has an old-fashioned half-cockk safety.

My Henry levers don't have safeties... (besides the hammer)

But will the new Henrys pass the rigid inspection and torture tests of Tim Quickdtoo?

Inquiring Minds want to know!

Stay tuned.

Back to the topic at hand - What is that knob at the front of the forearm? Maybe a take-down button so you don't need a screw driver, or is it a sling stud? ~WH~

According to another post on this gun in this section, it's a take-down button for the fore end stock.
The Legacy break actions have a safety too and I've also heard that the law these days says they have to have them.
Don't know how Henry gets around it (CVA, too), but maybe its the difference between using a hammer block or transfer bar, compared to rebounding hammers?
A manual safety would make sense when you look at it that way (although, it is a break action gun. One could just carry it with the action opened, so.....???).
I would like to take a closer look at this gun.
"Made in China" doesn't bother me as much as it used to. So much stuff is made overseas these days, you're likely using it whether you know it or not.
If you do your homework and pay attention to QC, there's no reason why a copy should be any worse than an original (maybe even improved, as the Japanese have shown us for about 50 years now).
I wonder if Stevens would make one for me with a barrel between 30 and 36 inches. That would be nicer than a 26.
