Henry Repeating Arms Pump Action .22 LR

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Henry had the benefit of a front-sight hood, though it was not securely held onto our test rifle. The American walnut stock had strong grain structure, and the forend and butt matched. This was the most accurate of our test trio. It also had the worst trigger, but it wasn't at all bad. There were not problems with this rifle at all, except that it didn't feed Shorts reliably.

Shown top to bottom are Taurus, Winchester, and Henry solutions to the business ends of the pump rifles. Note the Winchester's magazine did not come to the muzzle. The Taurus, with its 16.5-inch barrel, held as many rounds as the 23-inch Winchester barrel. That sight hood on the Henry slid on and off too easily for us. We'd probabaly glue it.
The forend extended rearward to protect the action lever, and we thought that also cleaned up the pump-rifle's lines. This one had the traditional rear sight and side ejection, plus a grooved receiver if you wanted to add a scope. That little button in front of the trigger guard allowed the action to be opened with the rifle cocked.
