Henry 22lr Lever Action, any opinions?

I'm considering a Henry .22lr lever action and am soliciting opinions.

I really want a .22lr lever action. The Brownings are beautiful but expensive.

Not bad for the price, made in USA. Not all-steel like the Marlin or Winchester, but there are lots of happy owners over at http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums...splay.php?f=67

I prefer the Winchester 9422 over the Henry's. Nothing wrong with the Henry, I think they shoot great, just like the look and feel of the Winchester. I paid $500 for a 1972 model, just to give you a price comparison vs the Henry's.

NO disappointments with the Henry, sir. An affordable, quality piece that shoots amazingly well. Great little lever gun and a favorite of my household, for sure.

Danny that's the exact one we got. It's a neat little compact rifle, but adults can still shoot it too. Pretty dang acurate, nice smooth lever and good trigger too. It was my son's first rifle, well he's bigger than me now but the little Henry still comes out for squirels and rabbits.

I, also, use a Winchester 9422; and it is a 1973 first production run rifle. The wood, checkering, and bluing are absolutely gorgeous! I've got mine set up with a set of (original) Redfield, 'See-Thru' scope mounts, and a Leupold Vari-XII 4X scope.

IT IS A VERY ACCURATE LITTLE 22LR rifle; and I love shooting it all the way out to 100 yards. All this said, for what it is - a lever action rifle with a brass receiver - the Henry is a decent rifle; one that I wouldn't hesitate to own.

Early Production Run, Winchester 9422 (sans scope & mounts) Note beautiful wood checkering!

I have 3 options:

1. Henry Youth Model, $300.00 prox

2. Browning BL-22 Micro, $500.00 prox

3. Cut down the stock on anything else.

I shall opt for the Henry.

They are basically the old Ithaca .22 lever action. It's smooth as glass.

I have a Henry H001, and I also owned a Winchester 9422 in .22 magnum and a Marlin 30/30.

Bar None the Henry has the smoothest lever of the 3, and even though I hate the plastic front sight the Henry its still very accurate. You can't beat it for the price.

I bought a HiViz fiber optic sight from MidwayUSA. That solved my front sight issue.

Interesting. The factory front site are ok for basic shooting, but as I get older its getting harder to focus on front sights, especially the Henry's chunky slab of plastic. That HiViz site might be the ticket.

Thanks for the heads up.

i really like the Henry H001, bought it used at pawn store. Also have the Marlin 60, and an old Mossy bolt action. The most fun is had with the Henry, the others are fun too, but not as much as the H001.

Well, JMOfartO:

A couple of years ago I got the Marlin 39 "fever" and wound up with 5 of the suckers. (2 1970 Century Limiteds/ a 96',75',50 39A).

I loved 'em all.

But I kept hearing good things about Henry's, so my wife and I stumbled up on a couple of NIB youth models (HT001Y) at a local gun store, we 'bought 'em.

I'm high on Marlin 39's, but I'll tell ya the truth.

The little Henry (@ $267 OTD) will do anything for me as to accuracy, at any distance I can see to shoot from, that the more expensive, an heavy 39A's will do. And the action is actually slicker, not even close.

I'll always try and keep one Marlin 39A because they are simply classics, but I've let the 2 CL's go, sold the 96 and traded the 75 for a nice S&W Model 41 (even swap).

I still have the 1950 39A, but I shoot the Henry more often.

Either gun will do ya a great job, but the Henry will always have a warranty, and a great company to back it, something I'm not sure is available with the Remington owned Marlin co. these days.

Good shootin'

Jesse

My opinion is that they are very fun and reasonably accurate. Get one.

Picked one up about 4-5 months ago. I love it, cant say how accurate it is because only been to the indoor range and thats 20ish yards max. It's a fun gun and no issues with the 750-1000 rounds threw it so far.

I gave one (H001) to my son (23y.o.) for Christmas. He loves it. Henry is making good lever actions, you will not be sorry.
