The Henry Classic Lever Action Youth .22 is built to the same exacting standards and with the same high-quality materials as its larger counterpart, the H001 Classic Lever Action .22, our most popular and best-selling model by far. Its popularity stems from the feature set that punches well above its pricetag, like the blued steel barrel, genuine American walnut buttstock and forearm, and the smoothest action you will find in any lever gun.
This lightweight and compact version sports a reduced 13” length of pull and a carbine-length 16.125” barrel for an overall length of just 33”, making it just the right size for youth or smaller frames to have a proper cheek weld and sight picture. Speaking of sights, the rear semi-buckhorn is fully-adjustable for windage and elevation and the front blade is shrouded for protection from the inevitable knock. For those who prefer to learn with some magnification, the receiver is grooved to accept a 3/8” scope base.
Weight is an important consideration when choosing a rifle that someone will be learning with, and this rifle weighs in at only 4 ½ pounds, making it the lightest lever action we build.
