    I looked at one recently, they look like neat little guns for the price (~$175)

    I'd like another .22 but I don't want something that will tempt me to put money into it. Anybody have one?

    Kind of a novelty unless you were a hardcore backpacker/outdoorsman.

    the novelty is a lot of the appeal, and it isn't something with a huge aftermarket so i wouldn't be tempted to mod it

    But I'd rather have the H001 Lever action .22LR. :drool:

    We have one at my store. Its crap, dont get it.

    The hallow stock feels so weird with the gun unpacked. Its also pretty wide and fat and uncomfortable to hold.

    My dad is a .22 nut, so we've got a few similar "survival" rifles but I don't think any of them keep all the parts in the stock like that.

    Got one and love it. A friend had the henry survival, it was a cool novelty, would be nice to throw in the car on trips but a regular 10/22 or marlin 60 will be more comfortable and outshoot it most any day. I'd still get one if it was a good deal.

    I've heard a lot of bad reports on it, the marlin papoose seems to have a much better rep.

    I got to use one once, it seemed OK, but kinda cheezy. Decently accurate at a few yards, with ammo it liked, but I'd think a Marlin takedown would be a better choice for a portable .22, or an M6 Scout copy if you want a "survival" gun.

    I have one that used to be my dad's, pretty fun little gun but kind of awkward to hold. Pretty accurate too but I would get a lot of FTEs with certain kinds of ammo.
