Does anyone have any input on the .22 Henry rifles? The Marlin 39's are a lot of money. My use is just for target shooting.

Thanks,

Carmine

I bought one of the Henry lever action .22 about 3 years ago. Use it as a plinker/target shooter. Works great, has never jammed or failed to fire.
It is as accurate as I am able to be also. I would say get it if you want it, doubt you will be sorry. Colonel

My friends son has been shooting on for the past three years with not a single problem. My just won one at a Pheasants Forever banquet and I have been through it and I can tell you that it is well made and beautifully balanced. I believe it is better made than a 94 Winchester that I have a fondness for. Buy it I do not think you can go wrong.
Go Well

I bought a Henry about three years ago and have nothing but good things to say about it. Very well made, very accurate. You will not be sorry buying one.

I bought a Henry 22 lever action a number of years ago. My only complaint was the front support holding magazine tube is plastic and if my memory serves me right the front sight is too. Beautiful walnut on mine. I sold it for what I paid which was nice. I believe the reciever is aluminum or die cast with a powder paint finish. When growing up my brother had a Marlin 39A which I loved. Can't say the Henry is in the same league as a 39A but still nice enough.

I don't think that I've seen a single one without a bunch of metal flaws right out of the box. Other than that, I guess they're alright.

Rookie Tim, The large loop lever can be ordered from Henry's as an add on. It is very simple to install.

I have sold a pile of them from small guns to the big guns and have had only one with a problem. It was a H004M and was soft striking the hull. The store owner's sons have one each and they are really rough on guns and shoot a lot and have not had any problems. Mine work great, as someone said, smooth as butter. I feel that you get a good product for your money. Wish the scope mounts and large loops were more readily available from the wholesalers. Buy one, you'll love it. Jackie B.

Shooting Jack, thanks for the information on the large loop levers. I am with you, I think the large loop adds a lot to the looks of the rifle.
