    I know you are doing a lot with Henry lever .22s. I am thinking of buying one, but there are many different models. Is there a difference in them other than the cosmetics? round versus octagenal barrel, brass, silver, blued receivers, etc. The ones I have looked at have what look like die cast carriers, etc. I have looked at Henry, Browning, Mossberg, and Chiappa. Browning seemed the best made, but at double the price of a Henry. How has the Henry held up with use as I am thinking of getting one for two brothers to use for CAS? I would appreciate your input on what to buy.

      As for the .22 LR Henry internals, they are all the same.  The outer hood is the difference.

      Mine and a couple others which I have worked on since last summer, are holding up great after 2500+ rounds.

      Even though some of the internals of the Henry .22 are not steel, they are made as good as any rifle I have handled, which include the Marlin 39 and Browning lever .22


      Billy the Avenger has a VERY NICE Marlin 39 that is very slick and smooth.   But after he handled my Henry last summer at Black Gold, he bought a Henry and had me set it up for him, along with the Slater trigger job.


      My turn around time is roughly ONE day.  Slater needs another day for his trigger work and then its shipped quickly back.


      I don't ask for any payment until you receive the rifle back and find it worthy.  If ya don't like it, ya don't pay for it..... except for the returned shipping.


      My 'Soft Stroke' mod:  $65

      Slater trigger work:   $30

      Shipping:   ?


      If you decide to get one, I would like for you to shoot it first to insure it functions good from the factory.  

      Then when you get it back from me, you will feel a noticeable difference.


      If you want to call me, I can be reach anytime at:

      865 / 696-1996  or   865 / 336-2339


      Thanks for your inquiry.
