Nifty little rifle... When it first arrived the action was a little gritty, likely due to the factory machining oil, but just a touch of machine gunners lube and things got a lot smoother. First trip to the range I put ~100 rounds through it while sighting in the apature "peep" sight. Suprisingly accurate as long as you check for barrel nut tightness every few mags... I did not clean it when new, or after the first range trip...put it away for six months, and then took it out again - this time putting ~200 rounds through it. Used a combination of CCI and Remington LR rounds, and no misfires with only one failure to feed... Gave it a good tear down and cleaning, only because I knew it could use it - it ran great dirty even during rapid fire mag dumps... My only real gripe, and thus only 4/5 rating, is the fact that it has a small dovetail "rail" ontop of the reciever instead of a standard picatinny rail like the other AR platforms do... I had to purchase an adaptor to convert the dovetail to picatinny in order to mount a Bushnell red dot sight I had laying around... Judging from the reciever storage location in the stock, there is plenty of space to fit the receiver if it had been made with the larger picatinny rail...regardless of your optic of choice, there is no storage for it within the stock... I ordered an additional mag, as there is storage space for two within the stock, along with one in the reciever when stowed...for whatever reason aftermarket mags for this rifle do not have the external retaining spring. Not sure what it does, or why the factory mags have it, but so far I have not noticed any difference between them while in use. Wish they made mags with more than eight rounds...score one for the Ruger 10/22...

The quality of this gun is amazing, and it shoots flawlessly right out of the box. I have had zero issues and the gun shoots accurate.

Bought this for my son. We have yet to be able to fire more than 2 rounds with a FTE or FTF. I have tried all types of ammo and no good as of yet. Cool idea, however a 10/22 takedown would have been a better choice.

This is a great gun. The only real drawback is the barrel that comes with the gun. It has a steel insert, but the majority of the barrel is a polymer/plastic coating (laid on thick, but still plastic). Also, the barrel nut is plastic as well, and can work itself loose during firing. Now you can just adjust your grip and hold this nut while firing, its not really a big issue. But the barrel is not strong and will not hold up if you sit on it or are rough with it. It's STRICTLY a SURVIVAL barrel. It won't hold up to 1000's of rounds either. Now with all that said, don't discount this gun. It is still an amazing gun and the ONLY .22LR that can be taken down this thoroughly. The barrel is an easy and not very expensive fix as well. You can visit a few sites (one of which is called, be sure to leave a comment when ordering that the barrel is for a Henry US Survival Rifle) that offer a much more durable barrel. These barrels are made of solid steel, even the barrel nut is steel! The nut does NOT unscrew during firing either! It costs around $60, but it's well worth it. The barrel can also fit inside the stock just like the original barrel. I leave my original barrel in the stock and leave the steel assembled on the rifle. All in all, even with these minor drawbacks, this is a great gun. Its my very first .22LR and I have no regrets. Thanks Budsgunshop!

Love this backpack rifle !! Asembled the little beauty in a few minutes and put quite few rounds through it. Used CCI Blazer; no FTEs !! Great the way the magazines store in the stock -- feed end up so you can see if there are any rounds in either mag. Looking around for a small scope, with it's own bag. The little Henry is going everywhere with me !!
