I like open sighted .22 levers and the magazine capacities. If you're more into range and long shots with a scope, the bolt may be better.

I would lean more towards the CZ personally, I know you can buy barrels in different calibers for them that are supposed to be easily swapped. That may just be specific models though

Love my cz in .22 mag and it's a sweet shooter. That being said if your going to stay iron sights there's something cool about a lever action.

I’ve got a Henry with hi-viz sights.

If I got a cz I wouldn’t have iron sights. An American or Varmint

I have had both of those and to be honest the CZ magazine sticks out of the stock and I hated it. I also did not care for the drop comb stock. I sold it and bought a Ruger American Rimfire in 22WMR. The Ruger uses a rotary style magazine like a 10/22 and is a good hunting gun, I keep mine in my Mule all the time. As for looks the CZ is a beautiful gun.

The Henry I have is the blued version of what you posted and it is not nearly as accurate as the CZ or Ruger.

Funny, before I even opened this thread both of those rifles were options in my head.
Henry seems like fun, but I’d probably get the CZ.

I vote for the CZ but I'm partial to em.

That stock is specifically designed for open sights. If you can one for it, try a ghost ring or rear peep sight.

The dropped "European" type stock on the CZ is great for iron sights. Cz can have a better trigger. CZ is potentially more accurate, although with iron sights you probably won't tell much difference. For a faster handling gun with faster followups, if necessary, the lever gun is hard to beat. I'd have to opt for the CZ, though.

I bought a Henry lever action 22LR. Octagon barrel. All blue no gold. Came with a skinner peep from the factory. I’m sure they make it in WMR. I like it a lot.

Let me throw another one in the mix but you cannot get them anymore since the semi-auto ban except on the used market and there are some new ones out there if you are patient. That rifle would be the Heckler & Koch model 300. You will pay a premium for them today but in my opinion, they are very well worth it.
They have polygonal rifling and hit really hard. I have one I bought back in the late 70's and use to use it for close in calling for coyotes, red fox, bobcat etc. It is an awesome rifle and extremely accurate.

I have the CZ 452 american and the Henry H001 both in 22lr.
The CZ is super accurate. Did I say it was accurate....
The Henry is a lot of fun to shoot.
For small game hunting I would have to pick the CZ.

I also have a Marlin 882 with the heavy barrel in 22Mag that will out shoot the CZ any day. 50 yard head shots on squirrels are pretty easy with that thing. But it is an older model I bought it used 20+ years ago.

Does this mean your going CZ?

Or does the blued version of the henry have less of a drop?
