Own one with the octagon barrel and it wears a Weaver 3x9 AO rimfire scope. Zero issues with it and never really sat down and found out which ammo it liked better but the few brands I tried were all capable of 5 shot 1 inch groups or better at 50 yards.

Never owned a Henry . I've looked at them and they just seem so cheap made compared to my Winchester 94-22's and Marlin 39 and just couldn't see purchasing one, but in today's Market and the price the 94-22 and 39 bring they may be a good option if you want a leaver 22 magnum or maybe the only other option.

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.

My son bought a Henry lever in .22LR a few years ago. I put a couple thousand rounds through it without a hiccup. It was more accurate than my old Marlin 39.

I have a Henry 22 magnum pump and it too is a deadly accurate rifle. It loves the Hornady 22WMR ammo and it functions flawlessly. I own 2 other Henrys and they too are well made guns that function without any type of problems.

I compared my Model 39 with my Henry straight up in an accuracy/reliablity contest. The Marlin ended up sucking hind teat so I promptly, and happily, dumped it.

I'm rapidly growing weary of listening to people trash Henrys because of the Model 39's perceived "coolness." A product, be it a rifle, a fly swat, a mouse trap, or a submarine, is "cool" only if it consistently works...my Model 39 didn't, so it hit the road.

Every rifle's different but considering it age and use my 39's craftsmanship is definitely a cut above my Henry's but that's not to say the Henry is junk either because it isn't. It's a well built rifle at a fair price.
As far as accuracy goes, the 39's the most accurate 22LR I've ever owned and the Henry's the most accurate 22WMR I've ever owned so I like em both for what they are. I will have to agree though, that the 9422/M39 snobs's sthick gets old.

I had the base model in 22 mag. It was a smooth feeding and cycling gun. I mounted a cheap 4x scope on it and was able to shoot MOA groups at 100 yards fairly regularly. for the price mine was very accurate with the right ammo.

So... How are the Henry rifles built? Are they blued steel? Alloy? Pot metal?

Never used one, and have not been much interested. Still...

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

Not to hijack the thread but do any of you Henry guys know if the .22mag model will cycle .22wrf?

Haven't even looked at one in years, but IIRC they did have a fair bit of plastic on them at one time. Barrel bands and such. Did they do away with that?

The front barrel band {near muzzle} is steel now. I believe the forearm band is still plastic.

I'm looking at the exact gun, the one with the peep. Does the octagon barrel make it feel front end heavy? You got the 16.25" or the 20"?

Edit to add, found one locally except it didn't have the peep sight. The 20" barrel felt fine not real front heavy and will alow full velocity with .22 wmr. I took 5 rounds of .22 wrf and they cycle perfectly. I ordered the small game rifle with the peep and large loop lever. The Frontier I looked at today had a plastic barrel band, it was a new gun.

The fairest thing to say about Henry rifles, since being straightforward in my subjective thoughts a couple of years ago weren't very popular, is to hold one in your hand before you purchase. They don't have the same track record that other common lever 22s have had for the last several decades when it comes to the quality of materials used. That doesn't matter to some folks apparently, and that's fine, but it isn't a fact that should be overlooked unless you really don't care. (Considering the number of people who insist on replacing quality aluminum parts on various bolt guns, I don't necessarily think it's a small point.)

BTW, my Henry 22 Mag has a painted 'pot metal' (zinc) receiver, a plastic barrel band, and a plastic front sight. It seems to function okay. I'm happy to hear that Henry has apparently answered the demand for higher quality by making some improvements in recent years. I stand behind the idea that holding one in hand is probably a good idea if you're thinking of purchasing.

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.

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.

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!

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.

I shot mine yesterday for the first time. I have the .22 magnum with 20" octagon barrel, peep sight and big loop. I like it pretty well but havent shot it at paper yet. Quality seems good fit and finish is good except for the painted reciever which doesnt bother me all though it would look better if it were anodized. Sights were dead on right out of the box.

I'd happily trade my Marlin 883 and a little cash for a standard Henry 22 Mag levergun. But I wouldn't trade my 39 s,l,lr for a Henry.

The Henry's feel right and have a slick action, and I've seen some with the receiver cover stripped and a case hardened look applied that looked really nice.

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.

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.

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....

I've got 2 Henry's with the octagon barrel. One a golden boy that I put fiber optic sights on. The other a frontier that I mounted a fastfire red dot on. They both have a smoother action than the 39a I used to have. The Marlin and winchester are more robust in build, but no longer made. Parts will get scarce sooner than later. Was wanting another lever action, and it didn't make sense to pay the inflated prices for the older models. I got new ones with warranties & good customer service.
