    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.

  2. 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 www.rimfirecentral.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=67
     

  3. 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. :thumbsup:
     
  6. They are basically the old Ithaca .22 lever action. It's smooth as glass.
     
  7. My opinion is that they are very fun and reasonably accurate. Get one.
     
  8. 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.

    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.

    Y'all have talked me into it, and I thank you!
     
  11. 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.

  12. Get an H001. You will love it. I can't recommend it highly enough. Built well. Real American walnut stock, fun, accurate...
     
  13. Happy owner of an Hoo1, going with me to E Wa this week.
     
  14. I would go with a marlin 39A. I learned to shoot with mine when I was 7. Also my marlin is 71 years old and still a fine shooter. Im not so sure a henry will be able to make that claim.

    Quality American made rifle.
     
  16. get a marlin. You will like it better. Cost a little more but very much worth it.
     
  17. Bought my H001 used and it shoots great. A lot of fun to take to the range. My favorite rifle to shoot. You won't regret the decision. Have also heard that the customer service is great also.
     
  18. I had a Golden Boy and now have a youth model. I sold the Golden Boy and bought the youth model because I wanted a more compact gun that I could toss in the truck and not worry so much if it gets banged up a little. Both have been sweet shooters. Henrys are outstanding guns.

    I would recommend it. They're an awesome plinking & small game rifle. I had one, but pawned it when I was married to my ex-wife because we needed the money. I regret that. Oh well, that's another story. The Henry .22 lever action is great.
