    I love my .22 Henry H001. Lever action makes me feel like a cowboy out on the range, with a 30/30 or something hehe! I know, I know, it's only a .22, but we all know a weapon is only as good as its wielder right? Personally I love any .22 from a LR to a .22 mag round :)

    I guess loading time is the only negative aspect of this bad boy, but god dang is it a little nail driver!! I love the whole gun, from the sexy walnut, to the sights, and the lever action!

    What are your impressions on Henry Rifles of any caliber?

    For my dad 60th birthday last year, I put gifted him a Henry .22 lever action. Blued steel, nice wood and the heavy octagon barrel. The action was so smooth. I hated to hand over that rifle lol, sadly he has yet to shoot it. I would like to add one to my safe one day.

    The only problem with the Henry AR7 that is always in the BOB in the trunk of my car is that it isn't the new upgraded version.

    The H001 is sweet and even better in 22 mag.

    Don't EVER shoot the Henry 22 pump unless you are ready to purchase;they're just too much fun to be legal for an adult.Particularly one who is only in their second or third childhood.;)

    Ky, make it a point to take your Dad shooting. Then he'll shoot that wonderful rifle and you'll get to shoot it, too.


    I am in my 3rd childhood. I had my own, then again with my children and now with my grandchildren. I hope to own a Henry Lever someday soon. :D

    Have yet to shoot my big boy in 45lc. Sure is a pretty rifle though.

    I really like the look of the skinner sights I installed as well.

    I bought one two months ago and just got it to the range last weekend. I'm so used to the 10/22 that I had to force myself to remember to cock the lever. I love shooting the Henry as much as the 10/22s and I have 4 of those. Is there any difference in the standard model and the Golden Boy model as far as action?

    I definitely like the Henry's. They seem well-built. I don't own one, and have never shot one, but maybe someday. The only thing I don't really like, though, is that it loads through the mag tube. I prefer the ones that load through the side of the action.

    I have heard great things about those rifles. I would buy one of their big boys in a heartbeat if they offered it in blued steel with a side loading gate and aperture sight. The lack of loading gate is the main thing keeping me from getting one.

    Second this. They shoot great feel great and look great. But I hate the tube loading. It may have worked for cowboys but I'm from the magazine generation.

    The cowboys didn't even deal with the tube loading for long :)

    Cut a slot in the side of the receiver and it's perfect lol.

    I have a Winchester and a Marlin center fire both load through side of the receiver. The Henry load through the top of the magazine tube. It is quicker to load and unload with this method & just as safe if not safer. :) Cliff

    I went to my local fun store today and held a Henry Survivor (camo'ed) and a Henry Big Boy in .44 mag. So much want! The Big Boy weighs a lot more (or so it seems) than my Golden Boy and that's understandable given the power of the .44. The stock on the Survivor is wider than I expected and the sights struck me as a little cheesy n cheap.. I do like it though and could learn to live with the sights I believe.

    I agree completely...looks a little crazy at first..saw the exact same one recently..but once I picked it up...I could not put it down..haha. Just one of those thing s that I would love to own. The shop I found it in said he gets a lot of trappers that buy them Bc they float.
