I just bought a Henry Lever Action .22 at Walmart. It's a great little gun! It works well and is affordable. I'll post a full review soon!

I love my Henry Golden Boy but it has no provisions for optics but that's a plus for me as I don't think a lever action should have optics but that's just me. Mine is slicker than snot on a porcelain doorknob and works flawlessly whether it's rapid fire or working the lever slow.

It doen'st have the .22 dovetail on top of the receiver? Mine isn't the golden boy, but it has a dovetail above the receiver.

For the lever guns if just for plinking the henrys are amazing rifles. I prefer Marlins though. I feel the actions are stronger, thats just my oponion though. So if it gets banged around can't beat it with iron sites. For bolt I would go with the cz they are accurate little rifles. The savage mkII are one of my personal favorites but I'd take the cz over it any day.

Default Pickin' up my first rifle in a few days. Have a few questions.

The rifle is idiot proof! Each .22 likes a certain kind of ammo,buy different rounds and see what she likes, easy to clean. The rifle is grooved for a scope. I have two and they are fun to shoot! BTW enjoy!

Henry 22 is my go to gun. If you buy a henry you will have one. If you buy something else you will want one.

Picked up a Henry octagonal barrel lever 22 that was on consignment at a local gunshop. Never fired. Easily scoped. Cheap ammo, well it used to be cheap. Priced 22 ammo in Key Largo yesterday $50-80 a brick.

Run the lever, don't do it slowly, when I do it to mine it will jam, but otherwise it is flawless
