I just picked up a used Henry .22 with the octagon barrel. It is LNIB, don't think it was ever fired. Blued steel/real nice wood, good fit and finish I like the way it balances, just ever so slightly barrel heavy. I'll be shooting it this weekend. It might just end up wearing a set of Skinner Sights, we will see how it shoots with the factory sight for now. Only plastic on it is the butt pad. I am quite happy.

Here's my input regarding lever guns. First off I like thr practicality of a lever gun because I'm a "lefty". I therefore don't have the problem of operating a right handed bolt, and I don't have powder blowing in my face as the bolt on a semi recycles. I guess next on the list is "everybody" want to be a cowboy, and 3 of my 4 brands of lever action .22s look "cowboy".
My fourth liver action .22 was made by Taurus, The bolt operates just like the little pump or gallery gun that's so popular. The difference is that the bolt is operated by a lever. The model designation is 62-LA. How many of you have even seen one~? It's the first .22 I grab if I'm just going plinking because it's light, if functions flawlessly, it hits what I'm aiming at, and I'm not worried about getting a scratch or a ding in my 1957 built 39-A or my 1974 built 94/22, both of which are nearly perfect.

Ditto ^^^^^

Funny how the guys chit mouthing em are the ones that don't own one.

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've beat the snot out of it for about six years now without a single hick-up.

BTW,,,, the only plastic on mine is the butt plate.
But then,,,, so is the one on my 1946 Marlin 39.
does Henry still make this one?

I have a Henry pump 22mag.It functions OK but,if Henry would put an extra $50-$100 in quality parts they could build a lot better looking rifle.They have a lot of cast aluminum and cheap looking plastic parts.

As Bob Hagel would say"You should not use a rifle that will kill an animal when everything goes right; you should use one that will do the job when everything goes wrong."Good words of wisdom...............

I have 2 Henry's a 22lr & a 22 mag, I like them both esp. without scopes, they carry nice, very slim rifles and both shoot great with open sights. I had scopes on both of them but then the way they carry, and balance goes out the window.
They are with me a lot in the SxS as guns of opportunity on the farm.


I would have got him too but a Dad Blam snow flake hit me in da eye....
