Henry pump rifle H003T- Unsafe

Log in to see fewer ads
A friend of mine purchased a new Henry Pump .22 H003T.
He tells me that when you change the hammer from cocked to half-cocked (safety) the bold releases. He found this out accidently when he was having light primer strikes on some cases. Some rounds would fire. I have looked this up and this is how the rifle is designed. He contacted Henry and they told him the rifle operates this way. I am sorry but I believe that any rifle designed in such a way that it will fire out of battery is inherently unsafe.
