    You had me at Henry, nice little extra with the 1,000 round count down.

    What year Henry?

    If it was like NIB or close to it, I'd jump all over it!
    I had to pass on one that had never been fired here a while back
    for right around $400...I didnt have the $'s at the time.

    And as long as the ammo is decent ammo, a plus.

    +1. You can't beat a Henry. The ammo makes it over the top great.

    I wouldn't.

    First - the thousand rounds. That sounds like a lot, but for 22s, that's two bricks. What's that? 40 bucks? So that means the gun is 360. And in my opinion, that gun ain't worth 360 dollars. I might go 200 for one. Maybe. I've heard too many stories about "plastic action parts". I've got plastic on lots of guns. Triggers, butt plates, barrel bands. But not in the action.

    ive never had anything but phenomenal reviews about them...i really want one myself...$400 for it being practically new is a pretty decent deal IMO

    My brother has one, we both like it! Sugested retail on these guns is a little over $500, so I would jump on it if I were you, so long as you feel comfortabe with the price.

    It appears to e a decent price. I would first check your nearest gun shops as to the going price on Golden Boys .22. I would be curious as to how HRC would deal with warranty problems?BTW I don't believe there are any plastic parts in the action! Cliff

    I have the standard Henry .22lr and got it used when I got it for my
    birthday. Ive got and had a LOT of .22' rifles.
    In my most serious and honest opinion....
    You can Beat a Henry Rifle with the right Ammo!!!
    Ive shot alot of them...ACCURATE and dependable.
    Like Carver was saying on the sugg. retail price, it's about the same around here.
    You can get them a bit cheaper, but $400 for a GoldenBoy in VERY good shape,
    the extra ammo or not,.....
    My advice Beth, have a good look at the rifle and look it over and see what
    sort of shape it's in and how well it has been taken care of (tells a lot)
    and go with what you feel comfortable with.

    I wouldn't for a REGULAR Henry, but a Golden Boy is a more expensive model. Think my local shop had one around $400...maybe a bit higher or even a bit lower. But, you have the extra $$$ in ammo to make up for it. I would do it. :)

    I would normally sell a golden boy for around 389.00 or so. Add the ammo and you have 430.00 so 400 isnt a bad deal Beth.
