Strange times we live in. I was looking for a lever gun in a pistol caliber, and being a poor retired boy, keep the price down. Well you all know the availability situation running thru the firearms industry so pickings were real slim. A Henry was a definite possibility, but didnt really need an octagon barrel, and was holding out for a modern pistol caliber that I already had reloading stuff for. Hah. After weeks of online searching and numerous phone calls and emails to dealers in a reasonable distance, I decided to re-think my requirements. I finally landed a Henry Frontier model in 22 WMR, and the more I shoot it, the more I like it, even the octagon barrel. Very smooth solid action, nice heft, accurate with the few brands of ammo that have shown up, great look and finish. I am impressed, and it is close to becoming my favorite rifle, maybe even favorite gun. So if anyone is considering a Henry lever rifle, in my opinion you cant go wrong with one.
