VERY BAD IDEA DO NOT DO EVER.
Unless the barrel is specifically marked for using 45 Long Colt rounds you could experience catastrophic excessive chamber pressures and serious injuries.
I have a M-6 Scout and do have some handloaded down loaded 45 Long Colt Brass with powder loadings below the manufacturers recomended maximiun chamber pressures. A limited limited number of the Springfields M-6 were made to take 45 Long Colt as well but I believe they were the pistol grip version and pistol versions. Leinad also make some single and double shot shotguns that would take the 45 long colt but not all.

Default Henry Survival Rifle Feed/Extraction Fix

I've had several come through the shop with FTF and FTE issues. A quick, simple, and almost certain fix is to use a polishing bullet point on a rotory tool and chamfer the lower 1/2 of the barrel liner lip where it comes out into the reciever. This essentially provides a slick feed ramp instead of the steep angle that the soft-nosed .22's must overcome. Works everytime for me! I'll try to post a few pics this afternoon. God Bless! Jerry

Ahh, that would be perfect! I got FTF problems with the one I have and I suspected that polishing the feed ramp would take care of it but I wasnt 100%. Im probably going to take it to a smith to get done but pictures would still be appreciated!

Thanks!

Default Pics of polished/chamfered feed ramp

Here are a few pics of the finished product. The punch is there pointing at the bottom of the newly polished/chamfered feed ramp. Picture quality is poor, but hope it helps! God Bless! Jerry

When dirty this gun will have some FTE's Clean the bolt face well and that usually goes away. The gun always jammed when trying to feed. As explained above, putting a chamfer on the bottom half of the barrel has stopped just about all of my FTF's.

I have shot several and found them to be horribly inaccuate. Get a synthetic stocked cricket. Much more accurate and almost as lite. They are small enough to be lashed to the outside of a pack wrapped in something and not be noticed. Also dead bang reliable.

I have a charter arms ar7, and I can't say that I would buy another one.

I've found it to be a nice, handly little rifle. On the bad side, it jams quite consistantly. The accuracy is marginal, and it's picky about what ammo it likes. I don't know if this is a common problem, or just mine, but if you can manage to get the barrel and action into the rear of the stock, you cannot remove it with just your bare hands as it fits in there so tightly.

I mean, it works and all, but there are just so many better options out there... That is unless you really need a rifle that floats in water. I'm just surprised that no one has made a floading duck gun yet.

Thanks for the photos on the chamfer polish. I've seen many posts describing the fix, but it is very difficult to visualize without photos.

I have a Henry AR-7. My FTF problem seems to stem from the magazine; the bolt frequently just passes over top of the waiting cartridge.

Anybody got a fix for that? I was thinking of bending the magazine lips open a millimeter or so...
