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."
We currently offer several peep / aperture sights that look beautiful on the Henry Rifles. Please read the following descriptions carefully to determine which sight will work on YOUR Rifle. There is a LOT of information here but ALL the information IS here or on our FAQ page.
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT MODEL WILL WORK WITH YOUR HENRY RIFLE, OR FRONT SIGHT QUESTIONS, PLEASE EMAIL ME AT
to fill the slot left when you remove your rear sight)
(NOTE: BIG BOY RIFLES PRODUCED AFTER MID JANUARY OF 2012 ARE DRILLED AND TAPPED ON THE RECEIVER TOP FOR MOUNTING OUR SIGHTS. THESE RIFLES DO NOT HAVE MOUNTING HOLES ON THE BARREL. PLEASE ORDER OUR HENRY BIG BOY "EXPRESS" (below) FOR THESE RIFLES.
Please see our FAQ page for answers about "WILL THIS SIGHT WORK WITH MY FACTORY FRONT SIGHT"
(Sight is .420" from top of barrel to center of aperture)
(Ships with a .125" aperture installed)
FULLY WINDAGE AND ELEVATION ADJUSTABLE
Skinner OCTAGON BARREL SCREW MOUNT Sight 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
This sight looks GREAT on your .22 and 17 HMR Henry Rifles (MODELS WITH GROOVES ON TOP OF THE RECEIVER.) Mounted on the receiver putting the peep closer to your eye.
Fully Elevation and Windage Adjustable
PLEASE ORDER VIA THE DROP BOX AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE
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.
You will most likely need a taller Front Sight. 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!
For the Henry Models H001 and H003
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.

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 $25. 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 $25 plus $7 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 (And reproductions made by Uberti and imported by 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!)
