Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

This light, quick lever-action was a pleasure to shoot. But we were disappointed in the Henry’s accuracy with the scope and open sights.

To eject a spent casing and feed another round into the Henry, the lever had to be extended to a 90-degree angle. We became adapt at working the action after familiarization with the rifle, but would have preferred a shorter stroke with the lever.
Unlike some of the Henry models designed with lots of drop that was popular in the older days, the magnum’s stock was an easy fit for all the shooters on our test team. The plastic recoil pad provided a good grip surface to hold the rifle in place.
Adjusting the elevation on the rear sight was no problem, but dealing with windage took a few taps with a brass hammer to get the Henry on target. Accuracy with open sights was disappointing, probably because of the short sight plane along the barrel and the lightness of the rifle.
