    I just bought my 8 year old son a new Henry Mini Bolt 22 for Xmas. After looking it over, I felt it was my duty to test fire it for safety purposes (Yeah Right).

    I took it with me to the range today, and shot about 5 rounds through it (Didn't want it to look used) Boy I gotta tell Ya, What a fun little gun! It was very accurate putting 5 rounds into the center of the target at 25 yards. It also seems to be a very safe little gun requireing each round to be loaded seperatly and then the little bolt plunger to be pulled back before firing. It also has a seperate manual safety.

    Here's the problem..... I now want one for myself!! It would make a great little gun for walking through the woods and plinking. It's so small and light that You'd hardly notice it.

    Here's a link to a pic and description of the Mini Bolt. http://www.henryrepeating.com/minibolt.cfm


    I guess I'm gonna have to ask Santa for one for myself:evil: :evil: :evil: --Oneshot

    I strongly agree. I would buy one on the spot if they would do what Marlin does -- make an accessory stock available with a more normal length of pull. It's a slick and user-friendly little rifle and looks like it's well made for the asking price. I called them to ask about the stock -- the answer was "sorry, buy a recoil pad." :banghead:

    Brain fade, forget the model of the old Winchester youth size single shot. Anyway, fellow had his out,from way back when... what a shooter! We adults - even myself at 6' and 33" sleeve , were able to handle and shoot this youth model. We might have grown in size, but the stock still fit the kid in us.

    Well, I like short stocks -- and I'm 6-5 with 36" sleeves. I think the Winchester 70 Compact (13" LOP) is perfect for quick shots in the field. On the other hand, the Henry Minibolt is only 11.5" LOP! Maybe it's my eyes rather than my arms, but it seemed reeeeeeally short in the shop.

    I have an old Savage singleshot bolt gun that was my GrandDads. HE taught all the Grandkids to shoot with it. I was the youngest (except for the CA wackos whose Mom didn't like guns) so I ended up with it by default. Can't wait for my boy to grow up to it. And yes I still shoot it on occasion, surprisingly accurate little bugger.
