Thumbs down IMHO on the Mossberg. Henry H001- you can't go wrong. $300 most places. If you want to spend more, and want a longer, heavier 22, look for a good used Marlin 39A. The current new production Marlins, if you can find one, are made by Remington, and the quality is hit and miss.

If the Henry H001 is too light, try a Henry Frontier with the octagonal barrel. Henry rifles have walnut stocks. Mossbergs cost more, and have mystery wood stocks.
