This is a discussion on The Little Henry Survival .22 Cheap! within the Defensive Rifles & Shotgun Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; OK well, it's $205.00 now. It's a cheap little "Take Down" & the barrel, receiver & the 2 magazines store inside the butt stock. GUN ...
Nice little survival 22lr. I personally have too many Rugers 10-22's to allow me to fit one more into the safe.
I had one of those and got rid of it within a month. I couldnt get it to shoot for squat. Jammed every other round. Thought it was the mag but same thing with other ones. My buddy has one too - same crap. I wouldnt recommend that to anyone unless they enjoy being frustrated out of their mind.
I have a vintage Remington Nylon 66 which is all heavy Chrome & Nylon and basically rustproof/waterproof & also near weightless but, the Henry rifle takes down into a nice easy toting package.
I remember a very long tome ago to being able to buy either a toy or model of that thing. I had the model and thought it was cool. Must have been back in the early 60's or late 50's. Of course in todays PC world, never..........

Was That The James Bond 007 Gun?
I have always greatly liked the principle of that rifle but - must admit have yet to hear anything really good about them !!!
Huge appeal simply because of everything packing away as it does. I went some ways back for the marlin papoose tho of course not as compact but - shoots quite well and reliable.

Check walmarts, they may have to order it but it is cheaper.
Wasn't the original version issued by the USAF a single shot version? I don't remember what I traded nor to whom, but I had a rifle similar to this one in the mid-seventies. I do not recall seeing a manufacturer's name on it, but it did have USAF on it and a property statement. I traded it off after a couple of years. It was a single shot and disassembled to fit in the stock. It floated quite well. I tested that before I made the trade. I never planned to use it where it would need to float, but since it was claimed that it would float I insisted on proof.
The little autoloader would be much more useful to me than the single shot was. It would also be much more fun.

I think this is the FOURTH MFG. to make them.

I have owned 3 over the years , one worked perfectly ,
one was a jammer , one was so-so.
They are a great concept , but unfortunately have been
flawed in production.
The biggest problem with them is the EL-CHEAPO mags.

Yes, with a scope. He killed a helicopter with it! .22s must have been more powerful in the 70s?Originally Posted by QKShooter
