    Henry Repeating Arms US Survival .22

    Just saw this and I think I am going to get one. Would make a great BUG, camp, or whatever rifle I think. Wondered if anyone had any thoughts on it, and better yet, and first hand experience with one?

    I had one long ago, and honestly don't know what became of it, but it was a most interesting rifle.

    I had a gunsmith mount a small scope base on mine; I enjoyed shooting it. Don't recall any problems with it.

    They come now with that standard, apparently its been upgraded from the original civilian model of old. I've been looking for a .22 and think this one might fit the bill for me.

    Pretty cool set up - packs very compact (for a rifle) - the thing even floats!

    I had one by a previous company and I believe there was a design flaw. I had one round not go all the way into battery but the gun still fired. The case ruptured and sent brass flying out the ejection port but it also cracked the receiver all the way though to where the barrel nut tightens.

    Since I bought the gun 2nd hand, I could not send it back for repairs.

    So I recommend being cautious.

    For many years I thought I wanted one, until one of my dealer friends talked my out of it. He said the newer barrel designs made them less than accurate shooters as compared to the original military models. I don't really have any personal experience, but would still like to have one.

    I have owned one of these guns by a previous company for over 20 years. While I don't fire it often it has been very reliable, eats most .22 ammo readily and open sights mine has always been accurate at least for plinking and should be fine for rabbits, squirrels etc. Henry guns have good reputations and I suspect this one is not different. Get one.

    Good price. Good fun. I bought it because my little ones had a hard time holding up anything else, but this thing weighs nothing.

    I got one and the iron sights are dead on at 25yards,I would recommend it for backpacking or even bugging out,it will take small game and possibly even a deer if you hit him right.I bought mine used for 75.00

    Probably could take a deer down...I've noticed that I can empty the mag into a pretty small group in nothing flat. That's probably the way I'd deer hunt with a .22, anyway.

    I was looking at those as a plunker when I decided on my Ruger Single-Six.
    The Single-Six gave me the ability to use .22LR or .22Mag.

    That US Survival .22 was a cool little rifle though...
