Well the accuracy seems about the same to me anyway. I've been shooting clay pigons at a 100 yards with my Henry LA golden boy .22, and my 10-22 Wally World special. I scoped my 10-22 but Iron sight my Henry.Sold a 10/22mag several years ago, a little too soon I see. But it was a problem rifle with poor accuracy to boot. I want to replace it with a new lever action 22 mag. Can anyone comment on the accuracy of the Henry versus the Ruger lever guns?
skeeter nailed this one... the 96mag has gotta be the most versitile action out there for rimfires.....I have the 17" 1:14 twist GM barrel in 22MAG on it most of the time (ported), and I will commonly switch to HMR or HM2, or 17 Aguila, or rarely the 1:9 twist 22lr barrel. I have bedded it and spiffed the trigger pull a lot, but the bottom line is that no Henry is going to outshoot it in any of its top three accurate calibers unless the Henry has had some breathing done to it, and even then it will never be nearly as versatile, the Model 96 can switch to any of the common rimfires in just a few minutes.
