Henry Pump 22.....found one



Log in to see fewer ads
Located a H003T model locally.
Now if this “#@%*” snow would stop, maybe I could get to the LGS and buy it.
Anybody here enjoy this model?
Was,originally,....trying to hunt down an old Rossi Model 62 but to no avail....
Not even any gun shows around due to Covid.....

I picked one up last year. Found it by dumb luck. Was in a store looking for supplies and went over to look at the rimfires. There it was and now it is in my possession. It's fun, a good shooter, and accurate. I put a Bushnell TR-25 on it because I can't see anymore.

The Rossi model 62 is a fine little rifle if you can hang in there and locate one.

I've had mine for several years now. Great looking rifle, but I also have a Rossi 62 and 59, and Remington 572 I prefer to shoot more. The Rossi is a much, much smoother action and both of mine are really good shooters. My H003 action never "broke-in". It's stiff and finicky, complete polar opposite of the smoothness of their lever guns.

I also have a Rossi 59 and my H003 magnum doesn't get out anymore...

I bought one years ago and thought the action was so rough, even after cleaning and lube, I never fired it. If the H001 is butter on an ice cube, the pump was like sand on a 2x4.

Henry was OUTSTANDING when I contacted them to express my disappointment and arranged for me to swap it for one of their levers.

Thanks guys.
Yes, my original search was for a/the Rossi (wooden stock, older 62A model).
Two/three weeks in,...... “Locally/Tri State area” but nothing to be found.
Not even any older 22 pumps, pretty much anything 22 is slim pickin’s, to none.
Still haven’t pulled the plug on the Henry yet. (Fever heatin’ Up)....
Even 22 ammo still nowhere to be had.

Shoots well for the sights on it, tin cans out to 35-40 yards don't have a chance, wish my eyes were as good as they use to be.

Found a gun store that had 3 .22 pump actions....2-LR and 1-magnum.
Bought one of the .22LR’s with the nicer wood pattern stock.
Picked ‘er up today (Illinois 3-day wait) and brought home for a good cleaning an inspection.
The “action bar” was bent some, from folks “improperly” racking the gun.
(little lever in front of the trigger guard must be deployed to *initially” charge the rifle)
Cleaned out the machining crumbs, cleaned the barrel with ‘rod n patch’, straightened and smoothed out an lubed the action bar and internals.
Way more smoother now....
Shootin’ time tomorrow!

I’m interested in hearing how it shot. I’m debating the Henry. I have found a Winchester 62 A got a reasonable price.

VGEHTS, what actual model pump did you buy? If a Henry did it have a round or octagon barrel?

just joined this site after reading it for some time ... have several other 22s, BUT yesterday found a Henry Pump at a LGS ... it is a used gun with the round barrel and 18.5" .. looks like new, hardly ever shot ... action is NOT rough like other here have stated .. not really that much different than my 62A ... shot it when we got home at our home range and while we only shot and loaded 11 shots, everything worked very well ... gun is beautiful ... cant wait to shot it some more today

20” octagon barrel.
Only shot once at range before I realized I need some sights I can see.
Installed HiViz fiber optic sights for my aging eyes.

Unhappy tho,......with factory dovetail cut for rear sight from the factory.
Long story short, seeking a gunsmith to install the new sights in the “deformed from the factory dovetails”....and while dealing with a local gunsmith and getting a bad feeling in my gut,....I installed them myself.
Should I have contacted Henry about the poor quality control....probably yes.
But truth be told...I am/was too impatient, so took matters into my own hands and fitted them myself.
(Didn’t want to go through the shipping the rifle back and BS stuff. Rifle should not have left the factory this way in the first place)
Maybe this coming Thursday I’ll be back at the range sighting them in.

Henry customer service has sent me a new “action bar”. Thanks Henry!
