About 4 years ago I bought a new Henry pump 22 Mag and it had a misfire problem which they tried to repair without success. They agreed to replace the rifle so I elected to take the lever action octagonal barrel 22 Mag. I doubt I have fired the rifle 100 times and it looks brand new EXCEPT for the receiver. I didn't look at the rifles in a store before buying them so I did not realize the receiver is not blued. It has some sort of thin coating which I think you can scratch with a toothpick. It has several scratches to the bare metal and I think looks terrible. I complained to them about it and they said they did not "advertise" that the receiver is blued. DO NOT believe all the BS they put out on the TV show about the quality of their rifles at least not the ones that appear to have blued receivers. The gun shoots well and I know this does not effect the function but I like my guns to look good and that will not be possible with any use of this gun.
