Wanted to share a few pix of my new acquisition - a Henry Golden Boy .22LR.

I had one of these babies on order for two and a half weeks from a store in Kentucky who was taking forever to process my order - their price was $429.99. I was getting impatient, especially when I saw one on the rack at BassPro last week, but they wanted $499... so I stayed the course with my online order.

But yesterday... I was out with a buddy, he needed some ammo, so we wandered into an Academy. As I was scanning the ammo shelves, a glint of gold caught my eye over on the gun rack. Lo and behold, it was a Henry Golden Boy .22LR... for only $399!!! The gentleman behind the counter said they got that gun in two days ago and was surprised no one had yet slurped it up. I told him it was mine the moment I saw that price tag! So needless to say, I high-tailed it home and canceled my online order. Just goes to show that patience sometimes pays off!

I had purchased a brass Skinner barrel-mount sight in advance and boy does it look sweet! I have to say, the action on her is like butter. She's my first Henry, and likely won't be my last. I plan to go out and shoot this baby Thursday.

They do seem like nice looking rifles. I may get a Frontier model and if it is good, consider getting one for my nephew. The brass colored receiver looks nice, but with my eyes, I think I gotta have the model that is easier to put a receiver peep or low power scope on.

Just fired my newly purchased Henry H001 Lever Action 22 last Saturday for the first time. Sure am happy with it.

I'm sure you are really going to like your Henry.

I KNOW I'm going to like it! It's amazing how therapeutic it is just sitting in my chair while working the buttery smooth action... CLICK-CLICK... CLICK-CLICK... CLICK-CLICK...

Honestly, they're almost too good-looking. The sad thing is how little I am handling it out of being afraid to scratch or fingerprint it up!

I was going to buy one at academy last week also but had just ordered a savage 93g online from buds, so I decided to pass the Henry up because of the other purchase. Lo and behold I get home and get an email from buds saying that they were sorry but they made a mistake on their website and don't have the savage that I had already paid for in stock and need to refund my money. So I rush back to academy only to find the Henry I wanted was being sold before my eyes:( I was crushed, hopefully they get some more in soon. Congrats on ur purchase, hope to get mine really soon

How are the actions on the Henry Big Boys? Are they equally slick?

We have two Henrys (a Frontier and a Golden Boy). Both are 22LR and slick as can be and both shoot anything you feed them. I handled a Henry BigBoy and it was just as slick as the 22s. It was a heavy sucker tho, but beautiful to look at. John

I've never seen a Henry that wasn't a fine example of quality.

KC.

That is just Awsome. CONGRATS!! I have a 39AS, but every time I see the Henery 22 I think I need one. I got fed up trying to find a Marlin in 357 so I went with the Henery Big Boy in 357 instead. All I have to say is WOW. It is just a piece of art and yes it is just as smooth as the 22. It is heavy, but man I just love the thing. Got mine at Cabelas for $813 OTD. Pricey? Yes, but the Marlins are more. I dont feel bad at all for picking the Henery and it has me thinking I need another.

Hayden.
