Henry® US Survival AR-7 Rifle
The AR-7 is a survival rifle!
The AR-7 is an excellent rifle for the purpose it was created. The only problem I have is that hollow point rounds (with a ridge) will jam because the round doesn't slide into the barrel. It will hang up as the bolt slides forward. When buying ammo for the AR-7 make sure the rounds don't have a ridge around the head and use rounded tip bullets. I mounted a scope to help with my visual problem, so I won't be packing the action into the stock and am carrying the weapon in a case.

Good so far...
Just got it and shot a full mag of 8 no ftf. Second round didn't feed, but after that it was smooth sailing. I think it was my fault because I had two different kinds of .22 rounds loaded. Overall good gun will take a little getting use to. Butt stock shoulder area is a little wide but that is to be expected when you have to store everything in the butt stock. It will definitely serve its purpose.

Great 22 rifle
This is my first Henry and I just love it, so compact and light and also very accurate for the style. I've given it a good cleaning when I bought it on the April 24th-2014. use good gun oil, then I fired around 200 rounds and not one jam or anything. This 22 is going to be very close to me from now on. This will put meat on your table, and my wife just loves it because of the ease of use and light weight. Ours in the Camo, it cost a bit more but that's OK with us. Give it a try this 22 works very well, ours does. Good Luck;;

I have owned 2 of these over the years--the second on I brought about 12 years after the first. the first would fire about 3 rounds before it would jam, better than the second which WOULD NOT fire 2 rounds in a row. I have had friends who had the same trouble. Maybe they should make it in WMR. I am amazed that they still sell them other than they are neat looking and easy to back pack.
I thing Henry is top of the line for mfgrs for all but this weapon. I have a WMR lever action that I would not sell for anything.
