I have an Armalite, Charter and have bought the Henry AR7s for 2 of the grandsons. They are dependable for me and the boys love to shoot them. I don't personally like the plastic sights on the Henry's, but they are good to 50 feet or better. They fill a niche and are good canoe guns on a river trip. If you don't like them, they bring a good resale here in Texas.
