The ARs were long gone, but they had some other nice stuff, such as Wilson Combat .45s and Volquartsen pistols.
They had a few engraved Big Boys, which upped the price on them considerably.
Then there was a stack of the regular Henry .22s for $299. I love .22s and don't have a lever gun. Well, I do now. Took one home.
Can't wait to shoot it.
And the rifle, too.
I like my Henry guns, I have 3 lever guns (H001L, H001ML, H001TM) and one of their survival rifles.
I assume you have an H001 series in .22lr - it will take shorts as well, I highly recommend buying a few boxes of CCI CB shorts, you can stuff a whole bunch of them in the magazine tube and they're very quiet. I justify buying them for new shooters on their first range trip - but I run a lot of them myself for casual shooting because they're just plain fun.
There is an aftermarket front sight with changeable fiber optics ...
... that you might want to consider.
If you ever want real in-depth info, rimfirecentral has a section on Henry guns in particular.
And if you ever have trouble with the gun, H.R.A. has amazing warranty/CS service.
By the way, mine still shoots nickel size groups at 50yds. I have out shot many a shotgun on running rabbits with a red dot atop.
Only complaint I had about them is the painted receiver. After a few years of use it got scratched and marred up to the point where I just stripped the black paint off. Actually think it's better looking lol
I know, scope is too high and wrong color but it's more for display and function when I'm teaching shooters about the different types of actions and Irons vs Optics then anything.
