Hey, we are the same age. We are just kids, right?

I was looking for one in 22lr but only found one in 22wmr. Did some playing with it
at the LGS. Yes, it was stiffer pumping than my old Rem 12 or my brother's
Winchester, but seemed pretty manageable. But then, at 70 years old, I carry a
13 1/2 pound smokeless muzzleloader in the fall. Perhaps I still have a few of
my farm boy muscles left.

Henry pump

I love my .22mag pump, as mentioned the throw is short and takes some more effort vs an old Savage .22lr pump I used to shoot but it’s not like a 12 ga pump either, and the action IS smooth. Mine is, anyways, and I’ve not yet lubed the action.

Well, the rifle was returned yesterday with a note explaining they replaced the forearm and forearm screws. Test fire okay.

What does the forearm have to do with an extremely STIFF action??

At times the slide goes to the rear fairly easily and sticks there...I really don't believe a forearm can help this.

My eldest son will visit next weekend. . . Looks like he gets a rifle to take home!!

My Henry pump has had 3000+ rounds through it and its still stiff, workable but stiff.


I still need to get better set of sights, the factory sights are less than stellar.

Is the “action bar” straight?
Mine (mine was a floor model) was bent from customers forcing the “pump action” without knowing how to properly pump the rifle while “empty”.

It is simply a poor design.

All they had to do was copy the Winchester design that John Moses Browning put together back in 1890. It was updated in 1906 and again in 1939/40.

Smooth as can be................
