Does anyone have the Henry Lever Action H001? How do you like it? Do you like the stock sights, or did you change them?

I picked one up used at my LGS .Like 200.+ . The wood was flawless, the action smooth the bore was shiny and rifling clean.
I treated it as a new rifle in the break in process.
I enjoy it as does my son.
It has steel sights not plastic ones.
So i was down for it .
Now it sits in the safe as other purchases have been made since.
It is a nice well made rifle IMO.
It is accurate and a fun shooter .
I would like to add the pump model to the safe ifn' i come across one .
I have two Henrys, both in 22LR. One is a Frontier and the other a GoldenBoy and they're both smooth as glass and good shooters to boot. I know that bigjeepman has a base model H001 and absolutely loves it! Hope that helps. by the way Henry customer service is TOP notch. John

I have a H001T and the action is smooth. I used some moly lub on a couple metal on metal moving parts and made an already smooth action even smoother. I found the rear buck horn sights to be superior grade a little fuzzy. So went looking for peep sights. Low and behold Andy at Skinner sights make them for the 3/8 grove receiver. Got them yesterday. If they work as good as on my 1894c , my tail will be wagging.
I picked up a H001T a while back and replaced the stock sights with a "buffalo hunter" setup. Its great fun to shoot and plenty accurate - I can hit the ram silhouette at 200 yards with it pretty consistently. I liked the rifle so much that I sent Anthony Imperato an email to thank him and he sent me a free Henry mug! Nice rifles and a great American company.

I've had the H001 for about a year and a half. Shoot it generally everytime that I go out just because it is so much fun to shoot (and inexpensive, of course). I put a Simmons adjustable scope on it because I can't see my nose in front of my face anymore. I would say that I have about 2000 rounds through it +/- a few. Love the rifle and highly recommend it.

I have one. Picked it up with some Christmas money a few years back. I liked it so much that I got rid of my 10-22 (which I now regret and will probably replace). But I found it to be like everyone else has said, well made, smooth action and accurate, and just plain fun to shoot.
I was looking for a Henry 22 rifle back in the spring. My son in-law found one new in the box,(H001) and gave it to me as a gift.
It's my favorite, and most shot rifle I have now.
Very well made, action is extreemly smooth, trigger is crisp, and is more accurate than any 22 I've ever owned. I like the sights just fine like they are.
I've read and researched a good bit on Henry repeating arms company, and the customer service is the best in the business.
If you get one, you won't regret it.

I have a H1001T that has been proven to be a real keeper. Shoots accurately, cycles flawlessly and has I think real pretty wood.
