Thumbs up Picked up a new Henry Lever Action Frontier

Well been looking for a rifle to replace my Ruger 10/22, I found online listing on a Henry Lever Rifle .22LR with the Octagon barrel NIB $300.00. Met up with the seller & bought it really nice rifle. Excited about it tomorrow I will get a scope mounted on it & bore sight it in. Today I took my older Henry round barrel lever rifle & my other newly acquired .22magnum Marlin bolt rifle to the shooting range. Both rifles very accurate, but the Marlin Bolt Action .22 magnum wow would shoot everything into one ragged hole @ 25 yards! I need to show pictures of my targets in the range reports. My collection of rifles have filled my gun safe up! Time to stop getting more guns & shoot what I have!! It's actually easier to find .22 magnum shells then .22LR shells which is BS

That's a very good price for the hex barrel! Henry makes some awesome rifles. I have 7 Henrys and love them.

Thanks guys, these Henry's one thing I think that sells them is that the actions are so smooth. The made in the USA also helps. I would like to someday pick up a Henry 30-30 in the steel receiver & set up with a nice low power scope.

"......My collection of rifles have filled my gun safe up! Time to stop getting more guns & shoot what I have!!"....

Or, time to get another safe!

Congrats on your new Henry. I have the basic H001 model and really enjoy it.

With your hope to get the 30-30 it sounds like you'll need the new safe for sure. Enjoy!

Man these guns are sweet shooters. I bought the 22. Frontier about a six months ago and worth ever nickle I paid. Accuracy is fantastic. Lever action just glides. Love this rifle, only regret is not having purchasing one years ago.

I picked up a brand new Frontier model .22WMR a couple of years ago, for $20.
Nope, not a misprint. $20 for a brand new Henry.
I won a "Wall of Guns" auction at my local FNRA banquet.

This was my second Henry. Bought a standard .22lr a few years back.
Currently waiting for Henry to start shipping the Big Boys in steel and chambered for .327 Federal magnum.
My order is in, just waiting on shipping.

Next I think it will be an all-weather .45-70.
Sooo many choices.

I love the Henry rifles being currently produced. Excellent quality, and classic lines.

Their company president states it best:

“The truest test of any rifle lies in the experience of the person who buys it.”
