Henry .22 malfunctioning

I have a Henry lever action .22, and it has been a great rifle. However, recently when I've shot it, sometimes the spent shell won't eject out when I cycle the action. The action opens, and the next round comes up to be put in the chamber, but the spent shell is still sitting there, and then the bullet of the next round just bumps into the back of the already spent shell. This causes a real annoying problem getting both of them out. Anyone have any similar problems? I've tried cleaning it thoroughly, and it still did it. Thanks ahead of time for any info.

Well I've always just bought the decently cheap stuff (box of around 500 or so, Federal, usually). That might be the problem, but I'm not totally sure. I've shot other kinds of ammo through it as well though. I've never had problems with the federal until recently. What kind of ammo do you use Gossman?

Sounds like an extractor problem. Have you checked to see if there is a lot of crud under the extractor? Send Henry an E-mail, they will respond within one day...they will make sure your problem gets fixed.

I second that. Check your extractor. I had a marlin 336 that i bought on an auction cheap and it wouldnt extract the rounds. Replaced the extractor and it works fine. I forgot what it cost, but it was cheap.

I tried to find a diagram of a Henry 22 lever action rifle so that I could see what type of extractor and ejector was in the rifle, but had no luck. A couple of things. It sounds like the extractor is pulling the case out of the chamber, if so, the problem could be with the ejector. If the extractor looks OK to you, you might also try really cleaning the chamber well, especially if you have shot any shorts out of it. If the chamber is dirty, it will slow extraction. If the ejector is not working properly, it will not kick the fired round out and the next round will catch on it. Let us know what you find. Is the firing pin also the ejector or is the ejector separate?

Best regards, John K

Henry has top notch customer service, give them a call or an E-mail, they will either send you a replacement part, or an overnight box to ship your rifle back to the factory for a repair.
