Henry Repeating Arms recently discovered a safety issue affecting certain lever action .45-70 Gov’t rifles manufactured during the period from December 14, 2022, through January 11, 2023. Henry voluntarily initiated a recall to address the issue and protect the safety of its customers.

To prevent the possibility of death or serious personal injury, you should immediately stop using all Henry Repeating Arms lever action .45-70 rifles and not load or fire them until determining whether the rifle is subject to this recall.

The Issue & Fix:

Under certain conditions, it is possible that some of these rifles may unintentionally discharge without the trigger being pulled if the hammer is released or dropped from the cocked position. Henry has identified the cause of the issue as firing pins that may not meet specifications and is replacing the firing pin to correct it.

Models Affected:

The list of models affected by this recall includes: H010G, H010GAW, H010GAWP, H010GCC, H010X, H024-4570.

To determine whether your specific Henry lever action .45-70 is subject to this recall, navigate to the following website:


Scroll to the bottom of that page, enter your serial number in the box, ensuring you’ve entered the correct letters and numbers, and select [LOOK UP] to see if your firearm is affected.

According to Henry Repeating Arms, your firearm is not subject to this recall if you obtained it before December 2022, or if looking up you serial number returns that your rifle is not affected.

Actions To Take:

Confirm whether or not your firearm is affected by inputting your serial number as indicated above. If your firearm is not affected, no further action is needed.

If your firearm is affected, continue filling out the form to submit a recall service request. Once approved, you will receive a prepaid return shipping label and further instructions.

After your firearm is serviced with a replacement firing pin, Henry Repeating Arms will send a $50 eGift card for HenryPride.com.
