Editor’s Note:

Classic lines, cheap ammo, and an affordable rifle are all calling cards of the Henry Golden Boy .22 LR. For those looking for some western-style lever-action fun, it is hard to pass up the 6.75 lb brass and walnut beauty of the Golden Boy. Its low weight, adjustable buckhorn sights, and good balance help make this rifle easy to shoot offhand and fun to plink with. A good trigger, a smooth lever action, and the low recoil of .22 LR will be sure to put a smile on your face for hours on end.

By The Numbers - Henry Golden Boy .22 LR

It’ll do its job with regular plinking ammo once you figure out where to place the front sight.
No failures to fire in the ~300 rounds I’ve fired across a couple of brands. Plus you’re GTG with subsonic ammo since it is lever action.
There’s not that much you can do…nor is it something you should do. Keep it old school!
A little front heavy and a little slippage from the brass plate on your shoulder. But otherwise the trigger and lever are easily accessible for a wide variety of hands.

In addition to the standard tube loading, these rifles feature a side gate to allow the rifle to be topped off without the removal of a suppressor.

final verdict

“The Henry Golden Boy .22LR was so much fun to shoot! It ate all the ammo, didn’t have a hiccup, and brought all the boys to the yard. I am definitely keeping this puppy around. Sure…you can get a .22LR rifle for much cheaper. But is it this cool and fun?” – Eric Hung
