    I have a chance to buy a Henry H001 and help out a friend at the same time. I am sure that I will do it because of our friendship as much as anything else. I am a large frame guy at 6 foot and I was wondering how a short carbine as this would look like a toy in my hands, I love the fact that it is a lever gun and will shoot .22 short/long/long rifle. Should I shoot it or save it for the grandkids...what say you?

    I'm 6'3", 200ish lbs., and owned one of the H001s. Neat rifle. It eventually found a new home as part of a trade deal some years back.

    I'm 6'2" 225 and I shoot mine fine. I actually like the gun very much. Only complaint I had was the black front sight. I just don't get that, but a little white nail polish and GTG.
    Get it and try it then you'll know for sure!

    I say for sure Shoot It! It will still be around for your grand kids. I doubt you can wear it out. I have the Golden boy. Looks like it will be around long after i'm gone!

    Get it, shoot it, learn its foibles, and use it to teach your grandkids how to shoot.

    Have fun with it.

    If you don't want it, I will take a second one. My granddaughter really enjoys shooting it.

    Thanks for all of y'alls input. I went ahead and bought it from him. I am hoping to get out and shoot it sometime this week. It looks like he never shot it but he says that he put about 30 rounds through it some time back. As far as he can remember it is about 8 or 9 years old and he even had the manual with it!

    I had an H001 a few years back, had no trouble handling it. I am 6'4" and north of 300lbs., and found it accurate and handy. I traded it to a buddy who really liked it, and I bought the Henry Golden Boy that I had been Jonesing for. We are both happy. :cool:
