Henry Rifles

I was thinking about purchasing one and dont know much about them. Have owned marlin and savage rimfires in the past but never looked into the Henrys to much. Anybody know anything about them or there quality. Was going to make my next rimfire purchase a marlin 17hmr but I am now wanting to know more about Henrys

Re: Henry Rifles

Several years ago I bought my daughter a Henry 22 lever.
Shoots great and she loves it.

Re: Henry Rifles

I have had 2 of them for years. Both shoot well with various brands of ammo. Would not hesitate to reccommend them.

I have a Golden Boy and really like it. Just wish the old eyes could do better with the open sights.

Re: Henry Rifles

Yes I too have heard good repors about Henry,s for the most part.From what I,ve been told you want to stay away from the cheaper versions.They supposed to have plastic trigger guards and a cheap weak receiver.

Re: Henry Rifles

Henry rifles are very good. handled two today, didn't see any plastic, only finly finished metal

It would help if we knew what model Henry you were considering? Henry makes mostly lever guns?

The one bolt 22 they make is a primative single shot.

I think the Henry lever guns compare with the Marlin 39 levers. The marlin 39s I have out shoot even my heavy barrel Savage 22 rf.

that "weak' receiver' thing is just internet gossip, it comes from the old brass frames on early rifles and pistols that would stretch with use making them sloppy with time. the Henry bras look lever guns are extremely strong and will not be stretching with the rimfire cartridges they were designed for.
