Specifically I was thinking the Henry Ar-7. Supposed to be made in the US, and I did read they tend to jam with cheaper rounds. Got alternatives for the same $250.00 Price tag?some like em, depending on when it was manufactured and by what company, some are known to be jammo-mattics
don't buy it if you're looking to plink and only want to afford the cheapest ammo; buy ANYTHING else because you will not be happy...buy a henry survival because you need a very light, easy to pack/store .22 rifle; those are it's special virtues...and yeah, it functions best using cci minimags/velocitors/stingers (not exactly the cheapest ammo you can buy).What are peoples thoughts on this gun? Other guns like it in the same price range that have the same abilities (everything fits in the stock)?
There is only 1 other breakdown .22 auto that I think is similar to the AR-7 that is the Marlin Papoose. It does not fit into the butstock but does break down like the AR-7. In stead it comes with a carry case. It is heavier than the AR-7 but fits in about the same space.I dont know how I feel about the weight of the 10/22. It is just about twice the weight of the AR-7. Possible for the 10/22 to lose 2 pounds, without breaking the bank?
It is because of the low power ammo. If the machining of the weapon is not "fine" enough to pick up on the nuances of particular ammo, it wont feed right. Higher powered weapons...the machining just has to give in to the force of the cartridge. A 22, from a gun's perspective, lets the ammo be in charge of the gun rather than letting the gun be in charge of the ammo.I'd try one. Semi-auto .22's just seem to be picky about ammo, may require some tweaking and break-in,.. just seems to be their nature.
Bolt action and lever action .22's... flawless. Semi-autos.. can be too.
