Congratulations and welcome! You will enjoy them all. I hope to add a HOO1V .17 HMR, ( Varmit Express) at some point as well. I have handled one, but at the time, I opted for the H001TLP, .22 S/L/LR ( Small Game Carbine ). I comes with Skinners.

I bought a Lever Action Magnum Express in .17 HMR with a cantilever scope mount. No front sight & no rear sight and a round barrel. Henry catalog lists it as a H001ME and in .22 WMR not .17, box lists it as a H001V but it does not look like the H001V in the catalog
BRM How do you like that Varmint Express. Im looking at one in 22 mag that already has a Burris scope on it. Is yours pretty accurate

Don't worry about getting older and still doing stupid stuff. You'll do the stupid stuff as always, only much slower. Hold my beer and watch this.......

Mine is a .17 and it is a tack driver. My granddaughter loves it. Have to find the targets but after I got it sighted in (CCI loads) it was putting 3 shot groups in a 1.5 inch diameter circle. (From a bench) 100m

Just brought home my second Henry, less than a month after the first one. This one is a rimfire (the H001 classic .22) I dont know why I waited so long to discover these. Just simply finding a rifle with a real walnut stock that is actually affordable almost floored me. With Marlin transitioning again, and Brownings costing what they do, Im thankful for this company. I wouldnt exactly call my BBS sidegate a bargain...but this one sure is. Once I learn how to navigate Skinner's website, I'll be ordering a peep for this rifle. I understand that the frontier model in .22 WMR comes factory equiped with a peep, and that one will probably be #3 for me.
Same here! What took me so long to find 22! Love mine so much I was thinking of getting a second because I'm afraid of over shooting it. This is the one I really want to learn iron sights on and the skinner is on my "to do" list. The web sight is a touch confusing so when I finally "pull the trigger" it will be a phone call just to be sure I order the right peep. Something inside me really wants to get the buckhorn down first but now that I am getting older it is becoming more difficult to keep focussed on all three at the same time. As far as the large loop I honestly find the standard small loop comfortable to work with.

H001ML, Yup. Go for it! Wish I had one. Might be difficult to find though.

I agree,
I have had some problems fitting the Henry rifles that I like to my size LOP. But recently after only seeing a 357/38 BBC and fitting the LOP and loving the accuracy and just the way the rifle looks and feel I decided to buy a second one in 22lr. I found a Evil Roy that has the plastic butt pad. I ordered a new butt plate and adjust the LOP on that one also. Very, very happy with both rifles and Henry.

Congrats! It's addictive. Henry rifles are a work of art.
