Any complaints? From what I understand, they are great little rifles.

I bought one of their youth rifles years ago when my oldest son was 12. It fit him great then and still does. The action on it is very smooth. I don't know how many boxes of Wal-mart ammo he's run through it. No complaints here.

I have two Henry .22s, an H001 and an H001Y (Youth) lever-action. I also have a Savage Mark II GL. The Henrys get fired the most--every day. Every piece of a Henry is US made and Henry Repeating Arms has the best customer service in the industry. For the best info on Henrys visit the Henry forum at Rimfire Central. Enough said...

I can't recall ever hearing a real complaint about the Henry .22s. I've got two, one for me, and a cut-down youth for my boy, and I'd buy the Mare's Leg as well, if I could.
Great little rifles.

I have an H001 and a H003, they are great rifles. Henry's customer service is outstanding. I find that my H001 (lever action) doesn't like to be babied and prefers that you work the lever vigorously to properly cycle rounds.

I don't remember why.

So I bought another one and kept shootin'.

+10 ^^. I have a Henry Frontier in .22lr. Smoothest action of any lever gun you will find. HRA sets the standard for customer service in the firearms industry. Like any .22lr they have a preference for ammo. Mine loves the Wolf Match Target ammo for best accuracy but the rifle will load, fire and eject any ammo that I feed it. Excellent firearm.

I have the golden boy. My complaint is the brasslite reciever cover is extremely soft and prone to scratching. Other than that it just shoots and shoots.

I have a Henry Golden Boy, the smoothest action of the 22 lever guns since I have a Marlin Cowboy II in .22 and a Browning BL22 to compare to...

You understand correctly. I've lost count of the thousands of rounds of 22lr mines gone through, never had any issues with it.

You can't go wrong with a Henry. Everyone is saying all the good things of what I would say. I have the Golden Boy H004.

Thanks for the link! I might be picking up a Henry soon just because of the deals that you can find on that website.

Not one

Whenever people ask me about .22lr rifles I give them the same list each time

If you want a lever action, get a henry

Semi-auto, marlin or Ruger

Bolt, CZ

I have never had any problems with any of those guns.

Love my Henry large loop carbine. Smoothest lever action out of the box of all I own or have owned. All American made, with outstanding customer service. Email them and the CEO will get back to your personally. Great company and product.

Get the Henry lever. If you want to spend a few extra $$, get the octagon barrel. If it's a shooter avoid the Goldenboy. Receivers, action, barrel all are identical, you just pay a few hundred more for the shiny finish, which will show wear and scratches quickly, and unless they have changed it recently, the Goldenboy doesn't have the grooves for mounting a scope that the other models have.
