It is important to know WHICH Henry Rifle you own.
Correct model identity is the first step to proper sight selection. The model # would be shown on the box label if you purchased the gun new or you can identify it from photos and info HERE > HENRY RIFLE MODELS
Its important to note that Henry has 3 sizes of BRASS STYLE RECEIVER rifles. (THESE ARE BEAUTIFUL!)
Rimfire Rifles with BRASSLITE receivers are "GOLDEN BOY'S"
Centerfire PISTOL CALIBER Rifles with BRASS receivers are
Centerfire PISTOL CALIBER Rifles with STEEL receivers are also
"BIG BOYS" H012
Centerfire RIFLE CALIBER Rifles with BRASS receivers are
30-30's/45-70's Henry also makes the 30-30's/45-70's in STEEL
The NEW "LONG RANGER" H014 is chambered in 308/243/223
All BLACK receiver RIMFIRE rifles are very similar in choices. (H001 and H003) The differences are Round Barrel or Octagon Barrel. Descriptions below outline which SKINNER SIGHT works with each option.
NOTE: There are variations of each Henry Model but the Skinner Sight choices will be basically the same for all variations of the same # model.
FRONT SIGHT SELECTIONS ARE LISTED IF WE HAVE AN IDEA WHAT "MIGHT" WORK WITH YOUR RIFLE.
(If no front sight suggestion is listed here then all standard front sight selection process applies. "Install the new Skinner Sight, using the factory front sight, shoot on paper at a known distance, use the results to make front sight changes IF needed)
PLEASE SEE OUR FAQ PAGE FOR MORE FRONT SIGHT DETAILS.
Henry Repeating Arms has been making beautiful leverguns for many years.
In a Letter from Anthony Imperato
(President of HRA)
he says this about SKINNER SIGHTS.
"We already recommend on a daily basis your peep sight that fits in the dovetail slot."
ALL SKINNER SIGHTS HAVE
FULL WINDAGE AND ELEVATION ADJUSTMENT
(except the LoPro which has elevation adjustment only)
BARREL MOUNTED DOVETAIL SIGHT
This sight works well on any Henry rifle with a 3/8" Dovetail
These photos were taken by a customer who wrote:
"Hey Andy, I finally had the chance to install your sights on my Henry Golden Boy and Big Boy. I took them to the range this past weekend and am thoroughly enjoying
the enhanced focus."
(Shown here on a Henry "Big Boy")
"I cant tell you how happy I am with these sights,they look fantastic!"
THESE SIGHTS WORK!
With a barrel mounted peep sight you don't need to worry about where the front sight is in the " notch". Just look through the aperture and put the front sight on the target.
(Shown here on a Henry "GOLDEN BOY")
Blue $55 ~ Brass $57 ~ Stainless $59
The Barrel mount "usually" works with the factory front sight.
For the Henry rifles that are drilled and tapped
under the factory barrel mounted sight
(Please look under the factory rear sight)
(This is for octagon barreled rifles)
#H004 ~ Golden Boy's and #H001T ~ Frontier's
we offer the
Skinner "HENRY OCTAGON SCREW MOUNT" sight.
This sight uses the factory drilled holes on the barrel flat just forward of the
receiver on the Henry Octagon rifles.
(Your will find the holes UNDER
the factory rear sight)
Supplied with mounting screws and hex wrenches for installation.
BLUE ~ $75 BRASS ~ $90 BLACK GOLD (or silver) ~ $95 and SKINNER GOLD ~ $100 (pictured below)
Shown here in "BLACK GOLD" (optional)
(Also available in "BLACK SILVER" for the EVIL ROY and other Silver colored receivers)
This sight generally requires a taller front sight. No promises (please see our FAQ page) but our 3/8"X.600" Front Sight or .570" Bead or Fiber Optic are good places to start.
(Sight is .420" from top of barrel to center of aperture)
(Ships with a .125" aperture installed)
FULLY WINDAGE AND ELEVATION ADJUSTABLE
The Skinner OCTAGON BARREL SCREW MOUNT Sight
(Identical to the sight above except for color/material)
is also available in SKINNER "GOLD"
Something about GOLD looks
amazing on Henry Rifles. This
"contrast" will look fantastic
when mounted on the barrel of
your Brass Framed Henry!

THE Skinner "RIMFIRE" Groove Sight
Skinner "BLACK GOLD" Option (Shown)
This sight looks GREAT on your .22 and 17 HMR Henry Rifles (#H001 MODELS WITH GROOVES ON TOP OF THE RECEIVER.)
Fully Elevation and Windage Adjustable
BLUE ~ $85 BLACK GOLD ~ $105
Mounting Instructions: Remove your existing barrel mounted rear sight (using a brass punch ) and replace it with a dovetail blank. On octagon barreled models there may be two threaded holes underneath the factory rear sight. Fill those holes with two 8-40 Fill Screws.
Loosen the rear "pinch" screw on the Skinner RIMFIRE sight and slide it carefully onto the top receiver "GROOVES" from the rear of the receiver. Set in desired position and tighten the rear "pinch" screw enough to keep the sight from sliding.
Adjust windage by loosening the top set screw and gently tapping (wooden dowel or brass punch) right and left. Once proper windage has been achieved, re-tighten the set screw.
Elevation is adjusted by loosening the set screw on the right side and threading the aperture stem up and down in 1/2 turn increments. Re-tighten set screw.
For round barrel rifles see our front sight/ramp/barrel band combo dovetailing service listed below.
On RIMFIRE Octagonal barrel models, use one of our 3/8" X .600" barrel mounted front sight and "trim" to the exact height you need while actually shooting on paper. Touch up with Skinner BLUE and you are ready to go!
SPECIAL MODEL FOR THE
Models H001 and H003
(This is my first choice for these rifles)
PHOTO COMING SOON
SAME AS THE HENRY SMALL GAME CARBINE
SKINNER SIGHTS is now offering a SLIM, TRIM, AND BEAUTIFUL sight for the HENRY H001 and H003 series Rimfire rifles. This sight requires drilling and tapping two 8-40 holes in the receiver cover.
Fully Adjustable for windage and elevation, this sight sits .080" lower than our RIMFIRE Groove mounted sight. Consequently there is a good chance (cannot guarantee for the reasons listed on our FAQ page) that it will work with your factory front sight.

The New Henry H010AW All Weather Rifles are AMAZING!
The fit and finish of this rifle is great, the action smooth, and accuracy is spot on
The black stock is not painted but rather a deep dark black
stain that shows the wood grain nicely.
Our friends at HENRY RIFLES really hit it out of the park with this one!

famous "BLACK GOLD" (As shown)

NOTE: These sights are as durable as the rifle itself. No need for protective "Wings", Machined from solid Steel, Stainless Steel, and Brass barstock.
Never any soft aluminum that is prone to damage and premature wear on the
finish. Accepts all 5 of our (also machined from steel) different size apertures.
Front Sight selection is always best made after installing the rear sight and shooting on paper at a known distance. Customers report about 50% success using the factory front sight.
Mounting Screws / Wrenches / and Instructions are included.
Sight is designed to fit the factory drilled and tapped holes.
If we are asked, we will "suggest" our 1/2"x.650" front (and trim to exact height as needed) or our .570" tall Fiber Optic front sight. These are just suggestions. Please see our FAQ page for more information. It is our understanding that some of the Henry Big Boy Steel frame models have a .570" factory front sight.
For those rifles, if a taller sight is needed our .650" tall Patridge blade
would be our "suggestion".

HENRY FRONT SIGHT/BARREL BAND MODIFICATION
If you have tried adding a receiver sight (or needed a different front sight) to a Henry Repeating Arms Rimfire, 30-30 or 45/70 round barrel lever action rifle, you may have discovered that the one piece sight/ramp/barrel band combo leaves very few options for a change.
Skinner Sights offers a modification to the STEEL (not the former plastic) front sight/ramp/band combos that will allow mounting the front sight of your choice.
We will dovetail the sight ramp with a standard 3/8" dovetail and Hot Blue the assembly for $30. If you want a Skinner Patridge Front sight installed, we can do that also and ship it back to you assembled.
Send me the Sight/Ramp/Band Assembly and a check for the $30 plus $15 return shipping and allow two weeks turn around time. Be sure to pack it well and include the mounting screws.
(For a fitted Skinner Patridge front sight add $20 for Blue and $22 for Brass)
(Front sight hood will still fit with this modification but the distance
from the top of a taller front sight to the hood will of course be smaller)

HENRY Model 1860 Repeating Rifles #H011 (And reproductions made by Uberti and Pedersoli, Navy Arms and Taylor Arms.)
This sight mounts in the existing factory dovetail with no modifications to the firearm. The aperture is bright and clear to the eye. We supply this sight with a .155" (X Large) peep to accommodate the wide factory front sight of the 1860 Rifle.
I have been shooting this exact sight (as pictured) on my own 1860 Henry Rifle
(44-40) and accuracy is amazing!
The sight picture is quick to acquire. Just look through the peep and focus on the front sight. Machined from solid 360 brass bar stock this sight looks like it could have been installed during the Civil War. (If Skinner Sights had been present during that era, we would have made sure they were!)
Available only in Brass.
Ships with .155" aperture installed. Fully adjustable for windage and elevation. Mounting Instructions and adjusting wrenches included.
WE DO NOT MAKE A FRONT SIGHT FOR THIS RIFLE AT THIS TIME.
