(I may be getting a little senile) Do any of you Henry aficionados have a Henry pump action .22? I sure like the looks of them, but I need another .22 rifle like I need another hole in my head.

I have one but haven't fired it. I got it just before getting the Marlin 39A.

It has the octagonal barrel. If you can't find one maybe we can work a deal.

I wanted one of the shorter round barreled rifles they sold at first but this was all they were selling and I had to look for a while for this. I thought this would work as a heavier and more accurate rifle compared to the Browning BL22 I had but the Marlin fills that niche and the Browning is gone.

Yikes - you know how to make it tough on a guy. Sure would like to know how they shoot. If I don't run on to one or come to my senses, I might take you up on your offer.

I know how you feel. I had read reviews that made it sound good so I bought it. When they first came out I handled one of the 20" round barreled ones and it felt very handy but I did not like the loose feel of the fore stock so I passed on it. I kicked myself later for not getting it, especially as the price was quite good. When I decided I wanted one the longer oct. barrels were the only ones listed and they were not available for a while. When I saw a new one in a local store I grabbed it. I put a scope on it but as I said I never fired it. I still have the box as well.

I haven't been trying to sell it, you can never have too many .22s, so if you should want it it will probably be there. I mostly play with handguns and I have a couple of other rifles I need to be shooting.

I'm waiting for the round barreled one also. It would be great if it was in .22WMR too.

I don't know if the early ones were available in .22 WMR but the current oct. ones are.

Will the Henry slam fire like the Winc 62 ?

The hammer will follow the bolt down if the trigger is held back. It does not hold it until the bolt is forward and then drop it, it follows it down, so I don't know if it would hit hard enough.

There is a catch in front of the trigger guard that must be pulled to work the slide if it's cocked but that does not stop it from cycling with the trigger pulled.

I've never fired a Winchester 62.
