Fidelity, very nice, thanks! That looks like a Grade II BL-22.

I have both a Rem 572 and a Golden Boy (plus a Rem 552). I love all three. The Rem 552 was my first gun, way back in 1962. Bought with paper route earnings... Each is a great shooter. The Rems needed a bit of TLC in the form of polishing the 'action area' due to some rough tooling marks to improve feeding, and I replaced all the springs about 8 years ago, which improved functionality. Bought the Golden Boy from a member here not too long ago, and it's a great addition to the family; I did add a Skinner peep sight that I like a lot more than a scope (scope looks out of place on this gun IMHO). I use the Rems for varmit control and plinking; Henry is just a plinker so far. Not sure what I'm going to take on this years' squirrel hunt, it's been 552 shooting shorts for many many years, will probably depend on the weather since the Golden Boy is so pretty... :-)

It would be nice if Henry builds a larger frame rifle for 357 and 45 LC to compete with Uberti’s Colt Lightning clones

Regret selling an IMI Timberwolf and not buying it back on 1st refusal

Based on comments from Fidelity, I REALLY want a grade II BL-22. I am trying to hold out until Christmas, we shall see if I have the discipline to do that.

I don't think you'll be disappointed, but it might be hard to wait. Sometimes CDNN has a special on BL-22 rifles, typically in the November to December period.

Only levergun I own is a Browning BL-22. I love the shorter stroke.

I have the Henry pump 22 lr. I bought it at a gun show on impulse just like most of my firearm purchases. I did have to send it back to the factory for some repairs on the bolt. I canít recall what exactly the issue was but it was definitely catastrophic.

It is a handy little rifle. I have a little 4x bushnell on it and itís plenty accurate. I was really surprised how well it shoots the agula ss. Itís a subsonic 60 grain bullet on a 22 short case for those who didnít know. Iím not sure the twist of the barrel but it does well. They are fairly quiet and hit hard.

My friend had the rem fieldmaster growing up and it was butter smooth cycling no matter how dirty it got. The Henry seems to get pretty sticky when itís gunked up. Thats not really a con as most repeating 22s require a good cleaning to keep running smooth.
