Looking for a gun...


Recommended Posts

If any of you have a good used Henry 22 magnum pump in good condition I might be interested in buying it. I plan on searching around town for one but the last time I looked no one had one. But I would have to see some good close up pictures 1st before I would consider buying. We got a gun show coming to town this week but the problem with gun shows is they think everyone is stupid and don't know what the guns cost new. Burns me up... :grr01:

But anyway give me a hollar if you have one you would consider selling.

Henerys go up in Value not down, the plant was flooded out for a year, and they had to stop making them, until just this Jan. and all the prices for them have gone up. Good luck finding one that's not pretty high. Grubstake

Here ya go Rimshot… http://www.armslist.com/classifieds/search?location=usa&category=all&search=henry+.22+pump

I've bought a few guns off armslist. Just make sure you feel the seller out first and make sure they're not a flake even if they're a dealer. I always ask for a phone number and call them just to make sure they're legit. You'll be doing an FFL to FFL transfer, so make sure you negotiate that in to your price.

But I don't want to go thru the FFL thingy ABB. 30 bucks more. I called a gun shop today and it was $499.00 + tax. They don't charge FFL charge if you buy it there. I keep thinking i'll get lucky watching TNOL but haven't yet. That FFL charge they hit you up for is a rip off IMO. I guess these online auction places do it maybe cause there is a law about online auctions. But anyways the gun shop I talked to said Henry don't have any in stock.

There's a dealer in Utah that has one for $435 no tax. $15 to ship to your Texas FFL. $10 FFL transfer on your side. You get a brand new rifle basically delivered to your door for a total cost of $460. Not a bad deal if you ask me since they are getting pretty hard to find. You're gonna pay full retail at the gun show, plus tax.

$10 FFL transfer on your side? Our FFL's charge around $30 for a transfer. Is this a 22 magnum? Sounds too cheap.

Yes that was .22LR… magnum is $34 more @ $469.00

If you look around some more you can get it for less than that.

Here's one on gun broker… http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=422036087

Would you believe there was only 1 Henry 22 mag pump at the gun show ( out of 325 tables) and hardly any on the internet? So I nabbed it. It's brand new, fresh off the assembly line. Henry just got them back on the line since they were flooded. I'm happy now.

He was asking around $560 for it and I got him down to $525 tax include. His cost was $427 which makes me want to go and get my own FFL license. I asked him if he had to buy several to get that price and he said no. He got it direct from Henry. He said FFL's are still easy to get. I started to get an FFL back in 80's but never did. But I think it was a fair price considering the shortage on them.

I also bought 200 rounds of 22 mag HP 40 gn for $19 bucks a box of 50. Last time I bought it at walmart it was $13 per box but haven't seen any there for a long time. Some people at the show were asking $30 a box.

I'll do a little a little target practice tomorrow and see how it shoots.

Lipca,

Henry has a lever action rifle for you.

http://www.henryrifles.com/rifles/varmint-express-17-hmr-rifle/

It holds 12 rounds too, just like my pump, or you can put one in the barrel to make to make it a 13 rounder.

But I chose a 22 mag which fits my terrain much better. Most of my shots would be from 30 to 50 yds with a few up to 100 yds. I also like the fact that 22 mag has more knock down power. Bigger bullit.

Out west, where the air is thin and the shots are longer, the .17 would be a better choice.

Here, if you like reading, Chuck Hawks does a very good comparison between the .17 HMR and the .22 Mag.

Chuck makes it easy to sight in too, by giving you extra info like this:

  • .17 HMR, 17 grain = + 1.5" at 90 yards, 0 at 145 yards, - 1.5" at 165 yards.
  • .22 WMR, 40 grain = +1.5" at 65 yards, 0 at 107 yards, -1.5" at 123 yards.

I always liked his write ups the best. Easy to understand for us "rednecks." :ROFL:

Well I was in a rush trying to get in some target practice this morning in between rain events.

But this target was about 40 yards from me and i'll get better down the road sometime. I had my rear elevation or guessstavation set and wham I hit the very top of the target. So thinking I made a good shot the first time, I adjust the rear down a notch. But late found that was the wrong decision. But I was glad to see the shots were on line pretty much, so I did not make any windage adjustments. If I had of kept the original setting for the elevation I believe I would have gotten better result's. Also my right eye struggles to see the iron sights and the bullseye at the same time because I wear glasses. But either way it would have been a clean kill on a coyote.

I have the .17 in a Ruger but a lever action would be fun.

I have the 22 mag in the Winchester model 94 that I bought in the 70's..... just wish I'd bought more ammo.

Funny about lever actions. I have an older Marlin 39A 22LR that I can drive tacks with at 50 yds and the Winchester 94 mag shoots a 1.5" group....

Rimshot, the Henry actually only holds 11. 12 with one in the barrel(but who cares :-) Thanks for the links.

It's kinda funny where the skid marks are..mostly on the right side...hmmm

Guns are funny Lipca, you never know what you got until you shoot it. Then you know. It could be a tiny burr at the end of a rifle or a bad crown job just a little bit off causing bullit's to fly funny. Or it could be as smple as you got the wrong bullit matched up with the wrong number of twist. But they are all fun to shoot.

You do know that once you get an FFL, you're allowing the ATF to come into your house or business anytime they deem necessary. No warrants, no nothing, they can walk right in. If that's something you don't mind then go for it.

No I didn't know that but have nothing to hide anyway. If you get an FFL for your on use and don't get a tax number I figured they won't bug you but maybe i'm wrong.

I had my FFL for 12 years and mostly just wanted to buy firearms for myself cheaper. My first licence cost $30 for 3 years and I more than made that up buying my browning a bolt, scope and a few accessories as my first purchase. I did sell many many firearms to the guys at work (post office) over the years which may or may not have been a good thing. :brows:

The only problem I ever had with the ATF was they wanted you to make a living with your FFL and I was just in it for fun. When I gave mine up there was a lot of pressure to either be in an actual business and not just operate out of your house. My ex wife had a pet grooming slash pet store so I ran it out of there until we divorced. When I moved to Boulder City they had their own rules on what you could do and not do with firearms in the city and having a FFL at your house was a no no. Since then the whole state has adopted one set of rules so anywhere in the state you go the laws are the same.

The paperwork really wasn't that bad and I never did sell to anyone I didn't know. Now going down to the ATF office in Vegas was another story. Talk about some paranoid people. You had to have an appointment, go thru the metal detector, have the guard escort you to the elevator and then an ATF employee comes down to escort you up to the interview room. Never did get anywhere near where all the employees worked.

Thank's guys for the info.

I use to know a guy that did business out of his house back in the 80's. I always liked going to his place to buy a gun. He only charged 10 bucks over cost so he said. But the main reason I liked going to his place was he owned plenty of land. He had a huge deck on the back of his house with a shooting table with small sand bags to rest your rifle on to sight your new gun in. All the land was cleared behind the house too. He had target set up at 100, 200, 300, 400, and 500 yards. One heck of a place.

Oh I noticed something about my Henry too. My Henry holds 13 rounds. Their web site says 12 rounds. So 1 in the barrel gives me 14 rounds total. Good to know.
