The Henry AR-7 comes with a small rail on top of the receiver for a scope. As I am not thrilled with the rear peep site, I have had this on my list to purchase for about a month or two. This past weekend, I spent a few dollars on a 4 x 32 scope for my Henry. Brand is unimportant to me at this point, because I could not competently review a scope if my life depended on it. I know how to sight them in, and for my Henry, I can tell you I spent $42.00 on it, and at this juncture, am happy with that. I probably could have saved $10.00 by ordering it online, but wanted to give the gun shop I go to the business. I like doing that when I can. I also walked out of there with a new compressed 50 degree sleeping bag from chinook, and a couple of extra bandannas as well.
After bringing it home I fitted the scope, and will take it to the range before the end of the week to site it in. I recently also purchased two 16″ MOLLE pockets to attach to the sides of my BOB (I have a post coming up about the contents of my BOB), and slipped a brick of 500 rounds of CCI .22 ammunition, the Henry AR-7, and the scope in one of the pockets. It was a tight fit, but they seem to fit in there fine.
I am looking forward to getting to the range, probably tomorrow evening after work, and sighting in the scope…
