Henry® Goldenboy® .22 Mag Rifle
I own the .22WMR with the Octogon barrel. The period-correct sights are horrible. With black buckhorn Marbles you can't see your point-of-aim on a black target, no matter what the range. Low-light produces the same problem with any color target. The rifle is fine, but steel yourself for spending another $100+ for sights (plus gunsmithing fees if you're not good with a brass hammer, drift-punch, & file). In fact, Henry sells replacement sights for some models at their factory store. It's their band-aid for a known sight insufficiency.
I recommend this rifle ONLY if you are fully aware that the sights are "period correct" and far inferior to the capability of the rifle.

A Wise Choice
I grew up in Wild Montana. Went on my first Bear Hunt in 1953 at age 4. Have owned all the GREAT Guns of Western Fame. Henry to this day, makes the finest Western Style long gun PERIOD.
My Lady has chosen this Golden Boy in .22 Magnum as her Favorite "Shootin Iron".
Buy one, you will be glad you did.
