Henry Big Boy Deluxe Engraved 44 Mag/Spl Lever-Action Rifle
Built in the tradition of one of Marlin’s oldest lever-action designs, the Model 1894 is an elegant carbine chambered for pistol calibers. Its handy size is punctuated by a quick-pointing, straight-grip stock design and traditional Old West-styled adjustable semi-buckhorn sights. The Model 1894 is chambered for 44 Remington Mag/44 Special, with its superior knockdown capability. Featuring finely checkered American black walnut stocks and fore-ends.
Got the gun home and took a look down the sights. I noticed that the front sight blade was leaning right bent over about 80 degrees instead of straight up and down at 90 degrees. Took the hood off and looked closely and noticed that there was a punch mark on the blade itself instead of on the base, so someone just bent it over instead of drifting it. Odd that they would let it leave the factory like this.
Hopefully it is not indicative of a more serious problem and had to bend the sight in this manner to get the gun to zero because of an underlying problem. Or someone bent the blade before the protective hood was put on it. In any case, I don't trust the zero haven't fired the gun yet and will contact Marlin.
