    I'de go with a 10/22 over it also mostly because theres a shit ton of accessories for it, but if you want something to take backpacking or something then yeah papoose might be better (or just put a folder on the 10/22)

    But it comes apart!

    Actually I'm also looking at the marlin model 60, apparently alot of people feel like they're more accurate than the 10/22 and cheaper, at least until you start modifying the ruger.

    I have heard terrible things about the function of the henry. Its certainly neater looking, but most of the accounts I've heard make it out to be crap.

    From what I hear every version of the AR-7 EXCEPT the Henry is crap. The Henry is supposed to be pretty accurate and reliable. If you can fit a 10/22 in your backpack that would be better, though.

    Fwiw I've decided to get a marlin 60 I think. Supposed to be a bit longer stock than the 10/22 plus more accurate out of the box. I'm hoping for a pawn shop used one for like $60-75.

    Psst, they make a folding stock for the 10/22 that folds in half for backpack carrying. It's called the Packer stock made by Butler Creek. They are a little pricey but it does the trick.
