    Got one last year.
    Love it. Had an issues with it not feeding the last two or three
    rounds. Called Henry, they sent out a magazine inner tube/spring assy.
    Been 100% ever since.

    Can't speak to the .38/.357 from Henry, but I'm convinced enough they make good guns to have their .22 on my short list. My .357 carbines are both marlins and I love 'em dearly but a lot of that is the range of ammo they'll shoot. From .38 round nose to .357 Leverevolution is a WIDE spread and all the virtues of the cartridge go as well with the Henry.

    If you're displeased, I'm pretty sure you won't be stuck with it. ;)

    Not based on the original henry rifle, if you want a henry you gotta buy an Uberti replica. They make one in a .38spl, as well as the later model Yellow Boy.

    Proud owner of the .45LC flavored one. Fun gun, looks awesome when you shine the brass up on it. I want to get a brass large loop handle for it AND get a pair of .45LC Vaqueros to go with it. Than I'mma be marching around my house all like John Wayne. Howdy pilgrim.....
