Q: Can you buy metal replacement parts?

A: YES...You can replace the plastic parts on your new H001. You can order metal replacements directly from Henry. These are not STEEL but are painted metal and match the receiver of the H001. There are other options as described below.

After trying the Williams Fool Proof on my H001 and finding that the factory sight was too short and that there was no easy solution to replacing it I starting looking for other options. I wanted something that did not require any drilling, tapping or machining. I ended up going with a Williams WDOS dovetail base to replace the factory rear buckhorn sight. The base comes without a sight blade so that you can choose the blade to suite you best.

Williams has blades in various notch configurations. I went with the 3/16” “U” notch to mate with the white dot front sight. The factory white dot front sight is the metal replacement from Henry ($10.00) and, to me, is better than the supplied plastic sight.

This link shows the 3/16 “U” notch that goes with the WDOS base, but when I ordered this from midway I actually got a 3/16” “U” notch blade and base to fit a Williams WGOS which is a little different but I just removed the base and used the blade.

If you are using the factory plastic sight you may want to order the square notch blade.

In either case I recommend the 3/16” height unless you have your factory sights elevated very high to get zeroed. I am using the 3/16” blade and have the base nearly bottomed out. It is nice to me because it that way the sight is as low to the gun as possible and less likely to snag on things.


Ghost Ring option that will work with the base above. Not sure how this will work with the factory front sight.

If you want a rear fiber optic sight, then any number of the Williams rear blades like the one in the picture in this link will also work with the WDOS base.

I inadvertently oiled the brasslite on my new Military Tribute Henry

Will that damage the brasslite and if so how and what can I do about it?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, in advance

The Henry H015-xxxx family of single shot rifles, whose cartridges as of 11/9/18 are ...

.223rem/5.56nato
.243win
.308win
.30-30
.357mag/.38spl
.44mag/spl
.45-70govt

... are very well made guns save for their incredibly heavy 6# to 7# trigger/hammer pull weights. the easy and cheap fix for this is a special 31# stainless steel spring, which will reduce those pull weights in half, making the gun far more consistently accuracy friendly and a joy to shoot.

Waiting for a 30-40. I know, I'm not holding my breath. 444 Marlin...

Both of these are chamber reamer opportunities.
