  • Henry .22 youth.

    Asked this over at the lever forum to but,

    Been thinking, the Henry .22 Youth model might be a bit of fun, nice and light, compact and still holds 12 rounds. Anyone have any experience with these? It would make a good little pack gun to, when carrying another rifle.

    According to Henry specs... the Youth is only 3 inches shorter and 450 grams lighter. I know half a kilo is nothing but can become something after a while. However, I found my Ruger 10/22 (340 grams heavier than the Youth and only 110 grams lighter than the naked Henry which would have been made up for with the scope I had on it) was barely noticeable as a carry-along rifle in the field with my other rifle.

    My point being... even the full size Henry will not be too much to handle as a carry-along IMO. So go for that, seeing as they are around the same price new AFAIK. Pop into your LGS which has a Henry and feel the weight for yourself.

      Yeah you are probably right. Another pack rifle I'm thinking about is the savage rascal. The rascal is very light and compact as well and a lot cheaper. Only real downside is single shot.
