Pointless thread Jim. The campfire's hypocrisy know no bounds.
I'd be willing to bet that 90% of the Henry haters that flock to these threads own "Plastic" AR's, 700 SPS's, Ruger Predators, Savage Axis,or any number of the other cheap plastic chit that's so popular these days.
Oh....and BTW...they're all "tube fed".....the difference is which end of the tube you load it from.
My octagon barreled Henry 22mag is the most reliable, accurate 22mag I've ever own and that includes Marlins and Winchesters.
