Henry Frontier .22 LR - Suppressed Fun



Log in to see fewer ads
I just took out a new octagon barrel Henry .22 Frontier. This is the one with the short tube (10 rounds), which is threaded for a suppressor. Shot at steel plates with CCI-SV, Eley Practice, Aguila pistol match; basically what was in my backpack. I wasn't shooting for groups, just for function.

The suppressor was a Dead Air Mask.

The whole system balances really well and the silencer works superbly on the long barrel. I used no hearing protection and can say that the sound of those 40 grain pills on the steel plates was louder than any noise the rifle was making.

I have a set of Williams sights on my other Henry, a H001, but shot today with just the buckthorn sights that the Frontier comes with. It makes a satisfyingly light package. I might try to figure out a sling for it. Anyone use a Brass-Stacker sling?

All the ammo fed pretty well. Best was CCI-SV. The Eley nosed-up into the breech face a couple of times, but seemed to work better when I worked the lever with authority.
