    Yeah the Henry is truly outstanding. It's my favorite 22lr I own. I enjoyed my Ruger 10/22 for the time being, But I prefer manual Reloading rifles. I've already put two 500 round boxes through it without a single jam.

    I bought my gf the Henry Carbine for christmas last year. I love that gun and wish I would have bought it for myself rather than the 10-22 that I bought. I will highly recomend the large loop lever, makes one heck of a difference in the feel and ease of operation!

    I loved my Browning short throw. Never fired a Henry. I want to get a 30-30.

    I have a Goldenboy 22LR that I haven't shot in a while. This thread has changed that. It now must head out to the range later today. I love my Henry!

    I've looked and drooled over this lever action but wondered how it would compare to my 1954 Marlin 39A. Has anyone out there shot both?

    I had a Marlin 39A made in 1960. I'd love to have it back but I wouldn't give up my Golden Boy for it. The Henry has a smoother action, they're about equal as far as accuracy.

    Coincidentally, I do have a '54 model 39A and a couple of Henry's. While the Marlin is a fine rifle and built like a tank, the Henry is plenty durable as long as it is given the care that most any firearm requires. Henry doesn't give up anything in the accuracy department when compared to other lever rimfires. Their rifles are usually shipped with nice looking walnut stocks and actions that are smooth as butter.

    In regard to the Marlin, the Henry's finish on the receiver cover may not hold up as well as the blued steel on the Marlin. Also, the front sight on the basic Henry is pretty coarse for target shooting, but fine for plinking. The octagon barreled Henry's have sights very similar to the Marlin. The Henry is also considerably lighter than the Marlin. Some folks like that, some folks don't.
    Here's my H001 and the '54 Marlin...

    I bought a Henry several years ago and have been pleased with the quality. What I have really been pleased with was the customer service I received when I had a minor problem with mine.:thumbsup:
