Anyone own/shoot a Henry .22 LR? I've been looking at one and am getting tempted.
I have one and i love it. Its accurate and fun, looks great and handles even better. The kids like it too.
Mine is the octagon barrel model.
I have the .22LR and the .22 Mag. Both are great shooters. The .22 LR came needing to be zeroed. Both fun guns. I use the .22mag as an armadillo killer.
I have one,and like it I got the plane jane version and I made a speed loader for it out of 1/4 inch stainless tube . My only complaint is the sights. My eyes arent too good,so I put on a scope,problem solved. They are a nice addition to anyones collection . I have heard the customer service is second to none , but I havent needed it
My family has a golden boy
ordered the engraved message brass receiver too
slick as butter
only bad thing is it's weight
daughter wont shoot it, says it's too heavy
Don't own one or have shot one, but if you have the temptation, get one. I can't think of a better valued or higher quality newly produced .22 lever gun other than Henry.
I love mine use it as my beater farm 22
I have two, a 22lr large loop lever action and a 22lr octagon barrel pump. I've yet to find anyone who can shoot either one with out smiling.
Are they as nice looking as the old Winchesters or Marlins? No they are not. Are they fun rifles at a reasonable price? They sure are.
We have three at camp for the kids and adults, all the basic H001 model. We love them. All are scoped, with hammer extensions. Great guns.
Mine's an H001, super basic model. No frills. Wanted one forever and the girlfriend got me this one for my birthday.
Accurate, and fun to boot. It might have taken over the rule of #1 plinker from my 10/22.
Only thing is that the sights kinda suck... typical leaf sight with a hooded front sight, but that's to be expected for something retro like this.
Have a Goldenboy and it's a true quality piece.
I have the basic model. Smooth action, fine workmanship, and very accurate. My favorite 22.
While my son was growing up, I gave him the choice of which 22 lever action I would get for him. After shooting the Marlin, Winchester, & Henry, he chose the Henry. After all these years, he still has that rifle and still thinks he chose the best one. It has a smooth action and it's very accurate. While I prefer my Marlin and my other son prefers his Winchester, the Henry has still proved to be a good rifle
I've owned this carbine for about 5 years and even "shot a moose" with it.
I have never owned or even fired a Henry.
I was channel surfing a few weeks ago and saw an infomercial where they were hawking their specialty engraved rifles. I have a former co-worker that will be retiring later this year and thought it would be a good idea to look at buying him one. I looked online and found they only make that model in 22 LR which would not be my first choice for this situation so I sent them an email asking if they possibly made it in a pistol caliber like 357 or 44 mag. I got a response within 24 hours on a weekend. It wasn't the response I had hoped for but I was impressed that I got such a quick response. Based on that minor experience I will probably buy one anyway. CS goes a LOOOOONG way with me.
Agreed. Henry is a very well known family owned business that's still run like a small family owned business.
Younger teens and smaller women will likely appreciate the lighter round barrel H001 base model.
I've got one as well as a Golden Boy. And while the GB has a nice heft which works well for larger folk the lighter H001 shoots just as well and handles like a dream due to the light weight.
And almost mandatory accessory for your Henry, or indeed for ANY rimfire rifle, is one of the Caldwell flip and reset paddle targets. Do consider it. Superb fun as opposed to just perforating paper.
We have a H001:
Love it! It's really accurate and FUN.
The wood is very nice.
I have a used H001. Very slick action, a lot of fun making cans dance. Sights are crude however.
A word of caution, when this thing (rarely) jams, it's pretty much mandatory you have to take it apart to clear. No small feat for a teardown so be aware.
I frequently take mine out to the Jr .22 nights for the kids to shoot. The times it jams are when they cycle the lever slowly and even stop and jiggle it. That it cannot tolerate and the round jams nose up when the bullet's nose misses the chamber opening.
So far I've not had an issue where it won't lower in place or where I can't point it back down or wiggle it out of the action through the loading port.
While the action is a touch tricky once you get the cover off (that's the easy bit) there's notthing difficult inside. Just tricky and needing familiarity. And there's a number of good You Tube videos on stripping the action and re-assembly. Much like the Ruger Mk series of guns just needs the right steps to be easy to strip and re-assemble the Henry has the same need.
I have one, the basic 001. I really like its fit and feel, and the action is slick.
But, I haven't gotten to try it out yet. Just can't find the time lately.
It's coming soon. I've been acquiring .22LR firearms lately faster than I can acquire free days to shoot.
There a Quality gun 22 LR & 44 mag
I have a blue large looped one. I only put a box of 40 rounds through it so far, but I have zero complaints. It seems very nicely made and finished. A friend has a .357 "Steel" Henry, and it's been great. I want the loading gate so I will be buying a Rossi in stainless soon.
I own their basic .22WMR and a .22LR with a hexagonal barrel. They're fun to shoot and I've never had any feed issues. However, the rear sight on both of them won't go low enough to zero at 25 yards. I added a tang mounted sight to both.
