They're a "blast" to shoot! Definitely pick one up if you're thinking about it...

Mmmmm....One or two...
Current offerings the Henrys are quite nice, there have been a ton of lever .22s made over the years, Browning made a nice one, Winchester 9422 is a lot of fun and the Marlin Levermatics are amazing. Ithaca made some as well as a ton of others I can't think of right this second

Over in the volko family we have a henry (the one with the longer octagon barrel), and the browning lever action.

The browning is slicker than the henry, but it also has a lot more rounds through it and a lot more years of use. We have a peep sight on it and I definitely chased a bunch of squirrels with it in my youth.

The older marlins (39A?) are renowned to be super accurate. Never shot one but all the ones we transferred felt very real to me.

I ended up getting a second Henry (the octagonal Frontier model Volko refers to) as whenever ,my wife shoots with me I can not get near "our" Henry H001. If you are looking new, I would say it compares very favorably to whats out there now, less expensive and if you need it, customer service is simply unexcelled. When shopping for "our" first, I compared it to a Winchester 9422. The action on the Winchester was as though it had been in a sandbox. I sold my stock Ruger 1022 without regret after seeing how much more accurate the Henry was, and there is just simply something about working a lever. Maybe it was all the cowboy movies. (I ain't no spring chicken!)

I have the henry. Nice, affordable, functional. Some of the others are a lot more expensive but I am not sure what you are really getting for that.
If you want to pay more then get the Henry golden boy or something.... but all are nice and fun to shoot.

No - those are a falling block action. ... they shoot though!


Browning is very nice - Henry is made 'local' though and for value and service can't be beat... and a bunch of people here will guarantee you'll be happy with one.. the browning is a bit more $, I like mine - 1976 mfg. but looks & feels new - and cost what a new henry would.
Rossi makes them too, but I haven't shot one.

Ithaca M49 was my first rifle. Got it in 67. Still have it. A hoot to shoot. The Marlin Levermatic is another favorite of mine. i use them both for irons practice. Those red dots make it too easy

Henry Silver Eagle here. It seems like the rifle aims itself.

The Marlin 39A pre rebounding hammer is about as good as it gets ...The Henry golden boy isn't bad either I have both and enjoy them both but the 39A is superior all around ...

I did look at a couple of gun auction websites for a Marlin 39a, wanting only an older one before the lawyers got a hold of them, but finally decided to buy new, which is my usual. Not disappointed with my Henrys, but not knowing if I was going to get a good shooter (I am not a collector but insist on accuracy) from a used Marlin was my deciding factor.

I have two Henry 22s and love them. First bought the basic H001 carbine and then the H001TRP Small Game Carbine with factory mounted Skinner rear sights.

I accidentally scratched the receiver cover on the basic H001. I emailed Henry Customer Service about repair or replacement. I had an answer in about 4 hours. I bought a spare cover and had it shipped in 1 day. As everyone says, Henry's Customer Service is the best.
