Anyone have one? I bought this on impulse because I thought it was a good deal, have always wanted a lever 22 and eventually my son can have it when he is old enough.

Paid $200 and it is barely used, guy claims only a few hundred rounds through it.

Good deal? I think it's a youth model but not sure. There are no model markings I can see.

Let me be the first to say congrats. You got a great gun for a good price.

I do not believe that is a youth model-looks like the standard H001.

Shoot it for thousands or rounds and enjoy!

Well popped off a couple hundred rounds after sighting in the scope and a quick cleaning...this thing was pretty clean to begin with.

I am impressed with the smooth action, maybe I am just used to larger caliber lever guns with stiffer action but this Henry seems pretty smooth!

Accuracy was very acceptable (I am not a sharpshooter, I mainly shoot tin cans) out to about 50 yards, didn't try beyond that range though I suspect it gets iffy at 75 yards?

Overall I am very pleased with this little lever gun and happy to have a match for my old Weaver 3x9.:cool:

Just picked up a Frontier model with the octagon barrel. Can't see buckhorns worth a hoot anymore but did not want a big scope so I put a little 4x for a Crickett rifle on it. Works well and quite accurate.
