    Love my Long Ranger. Very accurate gun with a detachable magazine.

      GS650G,
      What caliber did you purchase ? I’m ordering my first lever action gun tomorrow and I’m going to get the Long Ranger .223 / .556. I was also looking at the BLR’S but the reviews I read say the trigger is unsatisfactory. Never understood why a manufacturer doesn’t build the gun around a supreme trigger for the mid to high-end guns. It’s very important to me at least.

      Hope you enjoy,
      Mike

        .308
        It likes 168 SMK federal the best. I got one hole from 3 shots at 50 yards.
        Needs a better scope than the 100 dollar cabelas it has now, that’s my next investment.

    Good to see Mr. ‘Plinkster’ is still about. I heard he kinda retired a few years back…

    1. avatar Scoutino says:

      On the contrary, he got himself a job at Henry.

    I picked up an older model this summer in a Bemidji paen shop for $85- .22 in a trapper configuration- 16″ bbl. Something to leave/keep at the cabin. Old gun, nothing I see in their line at present and the wood finish isn’t up to what they’re kicking out now.

    I’m not a fan of the “pot metal” receivers, I think Henry was originally Erma, correct? The receiver seems to be soft, like a Erma “Luger” I picked up at a flea market up there years back.

  4. avatar Jon in CO says:

    I think the coolest part of Henry is you can directly email Mr. Imperato, and he will message back. Anything after, is handled by secretaries, but that’s a pretty cool thing. I really want an All Weather in 44mag. Such a gorgeous gun.

  5. avatar el Possum Guapo ect. says:

    Have you ever taken a Henry .22 lever gun apart? Fake side plates with pot metal innards . I’ll stick with Marlin thank-you

  6. avatar Curtis in IL says:

    Rice Lake is way up there. About 4 1/2 hours from me. I think it would be worth the drive to watch the blond in the tank top put barrels in the laser machine.

    1. avatar el Possum Guapo ect. says:

      4 an a half hour drive, shed have to do more then just chew gum ah say ah say

  7. avatar Swarf says:

    Where do they keep the loading gates?

    1. avatar Scoutino says:

      Sorry, fresh out of them.

  8. avatar Chris T in KY says:

    I love my .22 Henry. During the ammo shortage back in 2013 I was able to train using Aguila colibri ammunition. First time I had heard of the company. So low in power they will never work in a semi auto weapon. They are great for a bolt, lever gun or revolver.

    I love cowboy guns! (smile)

  9. avatar Widdler says:

    Henry makes the AR 7 right? I bought one thinking it was a cool concept. Course (DAD) decided to “BORROW” it as soon as he saw it, And is still “BORROWING” it. its only been like 10 years pops!

    1. avatar Chris T from KY says:

      They make a great truck gun! Easy to conceal.

    2. avatar Kenneth says:

      AR7s are really cool. I have one from the ’60s, when they were made by Armalite. It’s great how easy it is to take down and stash in a small spot. Plenty accurate enough, and pretty reliable as well, although it is a little picky about the ammo it’s fed.

  10. avatar Michael S. says:

    Do they show the warranty repair department where they ruined my steel framed .30-30? You know, the one my wife and son got me on his first Christmas? I’m not bitter or anything…

    1. avatar GS650G says:

      So they told you to get lost and broke your gun?
      I find that hard to believe.

      1. avatar Michael S. says:

        Did I say anything about “getting lost”? They received a gorgeous rifle with mechanical functionality issues. I got back a “repaired” rifle so mangled I didn’t bother checking the functionality. They broke the stock, which they replaced with another several shades darker that was over sprayed with poly (milky sheen with visible runs and drips). They replaced the lever with one that was scratched and missing 25% or more of it’s bluing, and the inner-mag tube with one that was out of spec. The front sight was darn near drifted out. They failed to address one issue, but that’s probably for the best.

        Mr. Imperato bought the gun back and refunded my wife’s money. I wish he would have fixed it given the sentimental nature of the gun.

        They make beautiful guns, and I still own a Frontier Model .22, but there will have to be some signs of major changes before they get another dime from me.
