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.

The Henry H001Y fists my short arms perfectly, and has been added to my Christmas list.

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.

Henry is fine...prefer my Browning BL-22. The Browning is unique with its trigger. Take a look.

My youngest son has a Henry H001. I had a Crosman air rifle scope laying around that fit perfectly. Very accurate and smooth lever action. My son likes to target shoot with .22 shorts. I think the tube magazine hold 21 of them.

There's some interesting threads at rimfirecentral about the company and the owner and how great the customer service is.

Henry customer service has no equal. I dropped my Henry and marred up the receiver cover. This was my fault, not a warranty issue. I called Henry and a man answered on the second ring. I told him what happened and that i wanted to order a new part. He took my name and address and mailed me a new cover at no charge.

I have a Winchester 9422 and a Browning BL22, love them both, but they are a little pricey. A couple of buddies have Henry's and while the fit and finish isn't quite what the other 2 have, for the money they are pretty awesome little shooters.

henry is the best company you will ever deal with, they will treat you like family, I bought a standard 22 that had a bad barrel crown, contacted them about it, and the president of the company(yea the head cheese) phoned me back within about 30min, told me he would have ups at my door to pick it up the next day, and they did and he sent me out a new rifle the day I called, I got it via ups in 3 days, but what he sent me back was not the standard rifle I had bought but there top of the line, brass reciever octogon barreled presentation model complete with gold enlayed lettering and every part that wasnt wood was brass ecp the octogon barrel, and it was a tack driver, the only bad part about the deal is the rifle is so beutiful I dont want to shoot it, I just want to hang it over the fireplace, its a pc of art work, so if you go with the henry you will be dealing with one of the best if not the best gun maker in the USA

Here's mine I just picked up. After reading this thread I believe I got a good deal (I just started another thread on this rifle) Sounds like Henry is a well liked company, this is my first Henry and I am looking forward to shooting it soon!

H001 owner here. Love it. The action is good but the trigger is great.
The front ramp sight leaves a little to be desired but inside 25 yards you're good to go. Really like mine. Much shorter and trimmer than the 39A and less spendy.

Frontier owner here. The octagon barrel. Dang fine little rifle. I find lately I shoot it just about more than any other gun I own. Racking that silky lever is FUN. Accurate too. And cheap to shoot.

I'll be picking up my Golden Boy in 22lr on Friday. I'll leave an opinion after I shoot it. I'm sure it's a keeper.

Well I put some rounds through the Golden Boy on Monday, and man is that thing sweet. The action is smooth as silk and it's just a great looking lever action rifle. I hope I'm around when my son gets a bit older so I can hand it to him as his first rifle.

Bought the Henry for my son. I think he knows about it.

He has always liked my Marlin .35 lever action.

Man is the Henry fun to shoot. Action is smooth as silk.
Pretty accurate too. Shoots anything you put in it.
Very nice craftmanship. I think you will enjoy it.

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
