    I have had a few over the years. It is a great idea for a camp/survival rifle. They were accurate, just didn't cycle well. It was named the AR-7 long ago.

    Yeah I think it still is the ar7. Henry claims to have worked out the kinks. I have a ruger 10/22 takedown but was just curious about the henry survival

    I have an early version of the henry. it doesn't have the orange insides when the butt stock is opened up.
    not a bit of problems with it. fairly accurate when going for small critter size objects, not for bull's eye competition mind you. I like mine but wish I had waited for an all black model. I bought the silver, and this was years before Ruger offered their breakdown model.
    Mine has a 3/8 dovetail for adding a scope, (newer models have picatinny) but now that I did add one, I have to remove the scope to fully store everything inside the butt-stock and then the scope is floating inside a pack. something to consider.
    no issues with any type of 22 ammo to date. the feed issues of the past are just that. In the past.

    So, if I were shopping for something that is lightweight, collapsible and fun to shoot, I'd still buy one.

    You can get them for pretty cheap too still. Here's one for $227 - Henry US Survival 22LR Auto Black

    Just try to find some 22LR and buy it all. Hard to find these days.

    Let us know how it performs. I want to know if the cycling issues have been resolved.
