I have one. Pretty accurate, even with a REALLY heavy trigger. Does fail to fire about 10% of the time. Got a Marlin 57M. Have yet to shoot it, as my range is closed for another month or so...


I had a 96/22 for a while... probably the most problematic 22 I've ever owned. I sent it back to Ruger a couple times. It was about 25% ftf out of the box. Got it back and that was fixed, but then it had extraction and feed problems. Got it back again and it functioned fine, but it was rougher than a gravel road after that 2nd repair. Tried buffing it out, but it didn't help, so I dumped it off on a trade. I never even shot it enough to really get a good idea of the accuracy.

Had one of the 96/44s for a while, too. It was nice and smooth, had decent trigger, and handled great, but I never could get the kind of accuracy I was looking for out of it, so eventually traded it off, too. It also kicked about twice as hard as any other 44Mag rifle I've ever shot... think it was the stock, that butt plate used to poke me right in the shoulder joint something awful ☠️

My choice now for rimfire levers is the old Winchester 9422, have a standard S/L/LR and a 22 mag, and love them both. I don't shoot the Mag much, but it's probably a bit more accurate than the LR.

The Henry Goldenboys are very nice, too, but I like the 9422 a bit better.

There is a 94/22M at the LGS. I think price was around 700-800. Looked very clean the little I handled it.

My best friend has a Ruger lever 22Mag. It is his truck and side x side gun.
I doubt it has ever been cleaned but it cycles ammo and shoots good.

I’d rather have just about any other rifle then a damn Henry.
My old Marlin bolt action tube fed model is one of the most accurate.22 mag rifles I’ve ever owned. Bar none.



I have one too, puts bullets in the same hole at 50 yards

I have had a few. Right now a cz 452 with a sporter barrel and a WW 94/22m. Both seem accurate, but the best a Marlin bolt with a tube. That thing would drive tacks.
Very likely the same model chlin. mentioned.
