    Anyone have any opinion on a Henry .22 lever rifle? I've seen them at Academy for $259. The gold plated one was closer to $400, almost the price of a Marlin 336. I would like one, but it's hard to justify with 10/22's for $189. Maybe because I grew up shooting Daisy lever BB guns, but lever guns have always been close to my heart. Thanks.

    Never shot one since I didn't care for the "feel" of it. I'm more of a Rossi/Braztech lever gun guy.

    I have one of the big boys in .357 and am happy with it......thought about a baby one to match. It's hard to justify $500ish for the Marlin 39A used in .22.

    I've had my eye on these as well... I love lever actions after having a Red Rider growing up(my dad's hand me down)... I've got the Mossberg 30-30 and have my eye as well on some of the bigger calibers but the Boy Scout Edition perhaps if I can find a good deal on it would interest me... Being an Eagle Scout and Vigil Honor member myself...

    They are good, reliable little plinkers. $259 does sound kind of steep, but when it comes to guns and ammunition, what ISN'T ridiculously priced these days?

    Understand. I really appreciated their recent ad. I wanted to support them just for that.....and being US made and supporting American ideals. I had a little trouble with the owners heavy Yankee accent, though I'm sure he'd give me flack for an honest West Texas accent, too.:texas:

    I need to get down to Academy and see how it feels.

    Henry Limited Lifetime Warranty

    A Neighbor bought one some time back, said he couldn't hit anything with it. I asked him if I could play with it, and determined that it shot horribly to the right even with rear sight as far left as possible.

    Got online with Henry, they said send it to them. came back yesterday with a new barrel, repaired and shipped back free of charges. And hits where I aimed like AOK.....

    I am a Marlin/Winchester/Ruger shooter but I will say that Henry has their hearts and warrantie in the right place.:texas:

    That's good to hear. I go out of my way to do business with honest people.
