Can't go wrong with the Browning or the Henry. They are both sweet rifles. The stocks on the Henry's look amazing.

I m an old timer and have or have had lever, pump, semi auto and bolt action RF 22 rifles. Save up $ 1200 to $ 1400 and get a top quality bolt action rifle with a few extra magazines. Look at Cooper, Anschultz, and CZ bolt action rifles. It will take about $400 for a scope site that has AO.

I'm wondering why you mentioned that episode.....when there is one where Leonard shoots his shoe.....but your point is taken....and as far as the OP......The Henry gets my vote. Just go to where they sell them and work the "silky smooth" action. It's a quality rifle.

Plus One on the Henry. If you're gonna only own one firearm and its your very first; something that will have lasting quality, cycles quickly enough to get a lot of practice in, is simple enough so that you don't shoot your foot off, and most importantly won't scare your wife so much that she makes you get rid of it. Plus a lot of levers shoot short, long, and long rifle ammo.

I'll try to add minor differences. The 10/22 mag is excellent and allows for reliable and quick reloads. The 10/22 is fully customizable.
The Savage trigger is the best stock trigger I have used.
The new American trigger is very good.
The Henry can shoot shorts very well. Very quiet.

I've owned both the MP15-22 and after reading all of the wonderful reviews I bought a high end Ruger 10-22 (SS ITAC).
The SW 15-22 is an absolutely flawless gun. It will shoot any kind of 22LR, even the cheapest stuff with no issues. Push 2 pins out with your fingers and it breaks in half for cleaning--bolt slides right out and easily slides back in. It is one of the easiest guns to clean. Lots of different type mags for it and they all work well. Rails, etc, give you lots of options.
Now for the Ruger 10/22. Nicely made gun, accurate BUT I was getting quite a few fail to ejects and some fail to feeds. Started reading around and it seems that the Ruger is somewhat ammo sensitive and MANY, MANY people swap to an after market extractor. ALSO, although the 10 rd rotary mags are very reliable the 25s have some issues and the after market mags even more issues. It is nowhere near as easy to breakdown/clean as the 15-22. IMO the 10/22 fan club has somewhat lower expectations of the word reliable. Overall, a good gun---just not as good as the S&W.

I would add that I did add the Volquartzen extracter to two of my rifles that my 3 kids have competed with in 4H CMP rifle for the last 6 years. The new extractors have never failed to feed/eject.

I think My NEXT 10/22 Will be a Heavy Barrel Marksman/Sharpshooter Type of Build...
Either the JARD or Elysium Bull Barrel, and a Thumbhole Stock,...Probably in either a Dk. Blue/Black Laminate or Dk.Green/ Black laminate...and a Nice Nikon P-22..

Jay: Check out the Current PODCAST,..we did a Ruger 50th Annv. 10/22 Special Segment,..as well as talk about many other Ruger Products...

Clearly your experience with the 10-22 has been different than mine. I didn't buy one of the high end models. Just have the one my grandpa gave me.

The most cleaning I ever do is running a bore snake through it.

We have one of the Ruger 25 round mags and two of the 10 round mags.

Have never had a single issue with it. I can't give you a round count but we've been shooting it for years. All three mags have run flawlessly as has the gun.

It was time for a new signature. This is what you get.
