What results have you had with your Henry or Golden Boy. I looking into buy one, and the price is much lower on the 001 Henry. What's the difference?

Henry has to be fed from the barrel end,

That makes them a bit dangerous to load. There have been discharges if the ammo is dropped in at too steep an angle. Also the Henry can become hot to hold after repeated firing. They are quite beautiful, but the '66 is a worthy improvment, imo.

Besides being the most beautiful levergun ever, the '66 loads from a gate, and is a stronger reciever. Ya going cowboy action shooting?

Now we're talking .22lr guns here right? Not old timey real Henry rifles. Is that what you are describing?

I almost had myself convinced to buy one of the Henry .22 lever guns. I went to the nearest gunshop and he had 4 of them. One was the golden boy. All off them had crooked rear sights that were very noticeable. It looked like the barrel was timed incorrectly . I'm sure they would have still sighted in OK, but I just couldn't buy one looked like that. Hopefully this isn't the norm for Henry.
