Are newly manufactured Henry rifles good rifles?

    Well, the 22 mag golden boy that I bought prolly 8 years ago or so was top notch. Hardly ever shot it but it's comforting to think of it standing proudly in my Browning gun safe. :)

    My buddy’s grandparents got him one of the commemorative .22’s for his graduation a few years back. It’s probably the heaviest lever gun I’ve ever held, easily heavier than my old marlin 30-30. But it’s built like a brick chit house, has an action smooth as butter, is an absolute tack driver, and is pretty gun to look at too.
    But yeah, they’re kinda expensive.

    I guess I haven’t check them out lately as I thought the .22 were inexpensive? Is the “big dollars” just on the “big” guns?

    good lord that’s gotten quite a bit steeper from even a few years ago I think?? When rifles became deer legal here I looked at several before buying and while Henry were higher end I don’t remember them being a grand. Wow. I bought a marlin 45-70 guide gun with the long barrel and I think it ran me a couple ticks over $700 brand new. Been through a few deer seasons now and I’m real happy with it.

    Its not that guns are so expensive its our dollar is so worthless. It will get worse so spend it while you got it.

    Never had it but never stopped me from spending it. The american way. A true patriot supports his economy.

    I just remember the early ones had plastic parts which was a turn off for me but from what others are saying they corrected that. Does anyone know if they contain cast parts?
