gmg - the Williams Guide Receiver Sight (WGRS) made for the H&R will have the correct hole spacing. I don't know if the barrel contour is exactly the same but should be close so the sight base could be fitted without too much work.

Or for a classier sight get a Skinner peep sight - they should have something to work on it.

Beautiful wood I must say. Sure beats the H&R pallet wood. I would also be very disappointed with that kind if trigger pull, even much more so if not a clean, crisp pull. Liability? Why does Savage offer adjustable triggers from about 2.5 to 5 pound? Other brands do too. My Uberti El Patron .45 revolver pull I would guess at about 2 pounds or even a bit less. Very, very light.

Went to the local Grainger today and got a bag of springs (too bad you have to buy 10...)

Rifle should be here tomorrow.

Thanks again,

Rick

I got my Henry 30-30 Saturday. Thank you for the detailed instructions. I put the grainger spring in this morning. The hammer pull felt spongy and loose after. It would not ingite a primer. So I put the small spring back in. It pulls at 3.3 and it popped off 10 primers with no issues. I put a sightrom h1 3x9x40 on it and bore sighted it. I plan to shoot Hornady ftx 160 grain with 35.5 of leverevolution powder. Tonight we are getting 10-12 inches of snow, so my range time may be delayed. Thank you for the fix and instructions

A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and dont have one, youll probably never need one again.
