Got this in my email this morning and thought I'd pass it along.....
Recall Notice for Certain Henry Lever Action .45-70 Rifles Manufactured after November 2022
Henry Repeating Arms is initiating a voluntary safety recall for lever action .45-70 rifles manufactured between December 14, 2022, and January 11, 2023. 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 due to the use of firing pins that may not meet specifications.
To prevent the possibility of death or serious personal injury, Henry Repeating Arms requests that all owners of a lever action .45-70 discontinue all use until it is determined whether or not the rifle is subject to the recall.

Any Henry Repeating Arms firearm obtained before December 2022 is not subject to this recall, and no action is needed.
To determine if your Henry .45-70 lever action rifle is affected, owners should look up their serial number at, email [email protected], or call toll-free 1-866-200-2354 (M-F, 9 am ET-5 pm ET). If the serial number is flagged, and service is required, Henry Repeating Arms will provide a shipping carton and return label at no charge to replace the firing pin. Customers will also receive a $50 gift certificate for upon completion of service.

I don't own a single Henry rifle but this looks important for anyone who's recently bought this particular model from them...
