AAPEXX,

I had the same problem with the ejecting when I bought mine. I lubed it up and it virtually became a single shot rifle. Finally I took it apart and took carb cleaner to it, removed all lubercation and then very very very slightly lubed a couple little spots that looked like they would need lube. I put everything back together and it has not had a problem since.

16" pretty neat little package. im gonna start taking it everywhere with me. the "peep" sight has 2 different size aperatures, very lightweight. the stock and handgrip are very fat though, no-one ever says that. but its fat and takes some getting used to. mags go in and out better than any gun i have.

IMHO, the Marlin papoose is far superior to the Henry. I have 4 Papoose rifles now. They shoot any .22lr ammo reliably, breakdown as small as the Henry, and are much better built. The fact that the Henry is NOT built strong enough to fire high velocity ammo should tell you something. Plus, parts are cheap and easy to find for a Marlin (basically a model 70 with a removable barrel). The stock is also more natural feeling than the "fat" stock of the Henry. You can also get high capacity magazines for the marlin. Last point, my papoose will shoot better at 50 yards than any Henry will at 25.

I have a coustomized AR-7, check-out AR-7 industrie's LLC. I have the heavy target barrel with a 3/4 length aluminum vented barrel shroud, a BSA. sweet .22 scope with butler creek flip-up cover's, kill-flash anti reflective devise, Warn aluminum combat scope ring's, bipod and a sling. The cool thing is it still fit's in my pack just by unscrewing the barrel, or it can alway's go back to stock. I ONLY fire CCI. stinger's/mini mag's, The only thing that can happen is the dual bolt spring's may wear out. Wolf gun spring's make's after market spring's for it. I don't know how to post pic's on here so I'll put them on my page.

the papoose isnt really the same as a henry, the barrel comes off, big deal, it doesnt store in its stock, it has to go into a bag.
you are SUPPOSED to shoot high velocity ammo, just not hyper (1600 fps+) ammo.

i checked them all out before buying. i also checked out some youth model .22's and single shots that can be broken down. part of the fun of the henry is the "gimmick" of storing in its stock, being waterproof, it floats, its super light weight. the henry's are more accurate and dependable than the older armalites. its cheaper. you can get higher cap mags for it, it has a scope mount. its camo. i wont put a scope on mine cuz i want it to fit in the stock. i will test mine for accuracy and see how good i can get with it.

I'd try one. And the history of the little A7 as a pilot's survival rifle is an interesting one.
For the price, it's worth trying it. Kinda like the Hi Point carbines... a low cost solution that works for what it's intended. Keep us posted, ok?

Eugene Stoner, the same dude that designed the M-16, designed the AR-7. In stock form it's a "survival rifle" designed to shoot food, protect yourself. They were'nt meant to be "Tack-driver's", but the reciever is a solid design that can built into a solid/ reliable rifle.

I hate these Henry "survival" rifles. I GAVE away the one I had. Complete POS. A barrel shrouded in plastic? NO. THANKS.

Marlin papoose FAR outweighs the Henry in quality and construction. WHO CARES if the barrel goes into the stock? The barrel comes off and it makes for a compact package. I can put it together far faster than the Henry and it will last FAR LONGER. The papoose was built to last a lifetime. The Henry was built to last for the duration of an emergency.
