Default Henry Rifles, who here owns one

I have been itching for a long time to buy a Henry Golden Boy in 22 LR with the Octagon barrel . Almost bought one yesterday at local gun shop since I have $250 of gift cards burning a hole in my pocket

Are they as good as advertised

Yes. Buy one. Then put a skinner peep site on it. It will quickly become your favorite plinking rifle.

Thats the only Henry I own. Wife got it for me for my birthday some years way back. Think she got it a Gradys. Works really well. Got no complaints at all.

I haven't shot that model but you can't go wrong with a Henry. I have the AR-7 (survival rifle) and when the spring guide (probably not the right description) broke I couldn't find the parts list to order a replacement. I contacted customer service to get the right part name they sent me two new guides and the springs to go with them.

I have a big boy .357 with Skinner sights...to be honest, get a centerfire over a rimfire. The .44 is next.

I have the octagonal barrel golden boy, great fun gun for the price. You won't regret it. More fun than my 10/22s because of the lever action.

Love Grady's. Wish they would expand north to Greenville and Spartanburg.

Not cheap by any means, but always known them to have fair prices and a huge inventory.

My cousin won one at the NRA Convention last year. It was either a 357 or 44 mag commemorative, I forget. The chamber was all messed up, could not extract an empty round after one shot. Sent it back to the factory, went to shoot it after deburring and polishing the chamber (supposedly). Same issue, he traded it..

We have Henry .17, .22 mag, and .45 long colt golden with hex barrel. Very nice guns. About to buy a Farmers Tribute for my Father in Law. Friend just got his son the Eagle Scout tribute. I hope to be getting one for my boys in the next couple years.
The long colt is sweet and the wood is excellent.

I doubt the squirrels actually think it's, "lots of fun."

I actually prefer this version. Shoots just as good, and easier to keep looking good.

I really loved it. Sadly, it was stolen.

Buy the Henry in whatever caliber you feel you'll shoot the most. My Golden Boy in 22lr runs pretty cheap while my Golden in 45-70 has expensive taste.

I've got the standard Henry in 22lr and I bought my dad one of the Evil Roy, it's a slick little gun. 16" octagon barrel, glove loop and stainless receiver.

Really wanting one that shoots .357 but it's near the bottom of a long list.
