Most Scope-Friendly Henry RF?

Post by tarbe » Sun Jul 14, 2019 6:33 pm

The Henry rimfire levers (most all of them, anyway) seem to have a LOT of drop in the stock.

I am not opposed to adding a cheek pad to help with lining up on a scope...but for those of you who have experience with the different Henry rimfires, is there a 22 s/l/lr model that is more scope compatible than others? I know I've seen pics of a 17 that appears to be set up for scope use, but I am looking for a s/l/lr model at present.

From the pictures, the pump seems to have less drop, but I have not been able to get my hands on one to check.

I can't see well enough to shoot really small stuff much past 25 yards without optical help any more, so I would plan to employ a low power scope.


Thanks in advance,

Tim

If you're a little creative, you can low mount a fixed power shotgun scope just forward of the hammer and still manage a cheek weld. It might not work for everyone, but it works for me.

Just a comment when I glance at all the Henry rimfires together on their web site. They show 39 models in .22LR caliber. (Just click on their rimfire link in this caliber). Usually Henry takes pretty good photos. Looking at these and slowly scrolling through the models, they appear to have nearly an identical drop in the stock. At the least, very minimal differences.

Like GaHenryFan's creative suggestion. Seems to be a possible solution for you.

I have a H001T pre small game carbine with big loop lever I would think that it would work well with a scope. I have always had trouble with the Golden Boy as I need to raise up off the stock to catch the iron sights

Any beside the Godenboy/Silverboy will be fine, but you can forget it with those two.

I was able to mount a compact Burris 4X on a H001T using Burris Medium rimfire rings, but it was close to being too low to clear the hammer extender. I get a decent cheek weld with it, and a scope with a little less eye relief, so the ocular assembly would be a whisker farther back, would have more clearance, but I like that little scope on there, so worked with it ;) .
