Got my small game rifle a few days ago. It has a metal band and front sight, can't say about accuracy as of yet. Will shoot it this weekend if it doesn't rain. The engraving that has the gold lettering in it looks like hell though. The gold is only in about half the engraving on the side that has where it is made. I like the gun but they could have paid more attention to their product before they send it out.

I avoided one for years, thinking it was a pot metal piece of junk. I finally decided try one rather than just dislike it for no real reason.

I guess I'd jump in line if they made an all steel version. But with that being said, I can't complain about mine at all. Accurate, smooth, a lot of fun to shoot.

The receiver is a zinc alloy casting. The barrel and working parts of the action {hammer, lever, bolt, lifter, etc.} are steel.


They're very similar (identical) to the older Ithaca Model 73 (Erma Werke-built; Germany) rifles. 73 was the mag, 72 the long rifle.

I just talked a friend of mine with a Henry .22 LR and
his shoots high, the open sights adjusted all the way.

Must be pretty new, as he is wondering if he should
send it in or what.

Any ideas out there.

We have two Henry Golden boys in 22lr. The only plastic is the butt plate. Not sure what the receiver is but appears to be brass or a brass alloy of some kind. Replaced the blue steel front barrel band with a brass band just for looks. The action is very smooth. Never had a problem with functioning. Both rifles are accurate enough to hit a jackrabbit at 50 to 60 yards.
The only complaint is have is there is a lot of drop on the rear stock. To get the proper sight picture the rifle is in an awkward position on my shoulder.
Like was said earlier, get one in your hands and see how it works for you.
I have an Ithaca model 72 with an alloy receiver and it is very smooth as well. Mostly use and carry these three rifles.
I have a Winchester model 9422 and a 9422m I have ever need error shot!

This Henry talk reminds me of when I heard a guy ask another how he liked his Studebaker pickup. Answer was well, it's kinda like sleeping with a black woman? Guy says what?? What do you mean? Ok, I really like it but I'm ashamed of it.


The Mayans had it right. If youre going to predict the future, its best to aim far beyond your life expectancy, lest you wind up red-faced in a bunker overstocked with Spam and ammo.

About 30 years ago I had a 9422M. Nice rifle but it wouldn't even come close to the accuracy I get from my Octagon barreled Henry in 22WMR.


I have one of those 9422M that I bought back in the 1970's. Mine is a real good shooter. I have not shot a Henry to compare, but my Winchester has been great. miles


Look out for number 1, don't step in number 2.

A buddy I was hunting with this weekend has a Henry 17hmr. Had problems with the trigger and grouping was several inches. He said in 10-15 shots he couldn't get a boresnake to drop down the bore. Henry had him send it back they're replacing the entire rifle. Sounds like good CS anyway.

I had a Henry 22 mag lever gun. It functioned flawlessly, shot accurately and felt good in the hand. I can't say the same of the Marlin I had.

The alloy receiver complaints are without foundation. They work as designed. I can't recall reading of a failed Henry receiver. I read on another forum where a guy tried to wear one out and after 5000 rounds it was still working great. My 10/22 has an alloy receiver, albeit of different composition from the Henry. Nobody seems to whine about that.

Henry makes a good product for a good price.

Bought one yesterday for $399. Base model 001M 22 Mag. Got tired of waiting/looking for a Marlin 1894M. I find it to be a smooth operating well made and shooting little carbine. Mine was shooting low at 50 but well within the adjustment range of the rear sight. Sighted in with 40 grain JSP.

I did not go with a Golden Boy because I found the cheek weld to be odd to get my eye in the correct sight plane. YMMV but the base model blued rifle fit perfectly.

Only plastic on mine is the buttplate. Quality is such that I have no qualms about exploring their other models.

You get a lot of rifle for the dollar spent, with a Henry rifle. A few years ago I had a 22lr lever action Henry that had issues and it was fixed on their dime, and to top that off, the President and CEO Anthony Imperonto ( not sure on the spelling) called me at home to see if I was happy with the repairs done to my rifle. Not a tech support guy but the man himself.
Next time you get a gun repaired at Remington, Ruger, S&W, Winchester. Wait buy the phone for their President or CEO to call and asked if you are happy with their product. (Never going to happen)
Comparing a 94/22M to the Henry rifle is not fair. But at least the Henry is half or one third the price. If you can find a 94/22M for sale.
Henry makes a good rifle with great CS!

Nothing wrong with a Henry. It should as good or better than a winchester. Metal and wood fits well. Plastic butt plate so what.

I picked up this clean used Henry 22 Mag with a 20" octagon barrel yesterday. I changed the sights on all my leverguns to a fine white bead and a flat top rear sight; this one got that treatment immediately.

I got it rough-zeroed on steel this AM and accuracy looks good with Armscor 40 grain JHP. Three shot 50 yard groups were often under an inch and at 100, they were 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 inches. Sighted 1 1/2" high at 50 yards put it right on at 100. By covering the top half of the 14" gong with the bead, I hit it 2 out of 3 at 200 yards. I ran it vertical, sideways etc. Feeding remained slick and effortless and it handles like a 94 Winchester.

The only thing left to wish for was a fine trigger and this evening, I cleaned it up to 2 1/2 pounds.

This little dandy is going to get a workout.
