    Well I did it! I finally got me a Henry 22lr Lever action rifle! I've been wanting one of these for so long. I put in some overtime at work, So I figured I'd add another plinker to my collection. As soon as I opened the box and handled the gun, I could just feel and see the true quality of it. The action is super smooth and shoots amazing. So if anyone is looking to add a quality lever action 22 rifle to their collection, This is it! It is well worth the money and some. I'm fixin' to buy me another one chambered in 17HMR. Here's a ccouple pics of it. Enjoy, - Brad

    Enjoy your new rifle.Not sure about best ever.I wouldn't trade my Browning BLR 22 for it! It is a nice gun tho.I can recommend Savage bolt for the 17HMR.Best accuracy!

    I wouldn't trade my Golden Boy for a BLR. Cant stand that short lever throw.

    Thanks 22wood. You may not want to trade your BLR for one.... But once you shoot a Henry 22, You may want to reconsider! lol:lmao: The BLR looks to be a nice rifle, But I don't like how the trigger is built into the lever. Kinda of a weird setup.

    We are all different.That is why they make so many different guns.I had a Marlin 39 didn't like it to heavy ,could not shoot as fast as I can with my BLR.Could we agree the Henry is best for you the BLR is best for me.I love the fact that Henry rifles are made in the USA.If I had the extra cash I would buy one just based on that! Have a good day!

    Congats Brad. I always thought a lever action would be fun to shoot. If you take care of it you will have fun with that one for years to come.

    Congrats Brad; it's a fine rifle indeed. I bought one for my son this last Christmas and I was impressed with both the workmanship and the price.

    I have 2 Henrys and love em both. They both have butter smooth actions genuine walnut wood stocks and both are really accurate one is a .22 LR and the other is a .22 Magnum. for the price you can't beat a Henry

    when i joined this forum a few years ago more than one person made comments about them being cheap and therefore not quality rifles.i disputed that then and i now see not one really derog comment about them.the one i have is at least 10 or 12 years old and i have yet to have any problems whatso ever.my neices and nephews always shoots it when up from florida.i usually give them a 500 round box of ammo each and they still buy more.that is a minium of 15,000 rounds from them alone,my guess would be approx 25,000 rounds and still ticking. old semperfi
