I took an extra 1/2 hour for lunch today and made it into the local WMA. I fired off two magazines of CCI's and the Henry AR-7 shot as smooth as butter. The factory set sights were right on target. No jamming of any kind. I couldn't be happier with its performance and the feel of this rifle. This is going to be a long week at work, just waiting to get in the woods with it Saturday.
Anthony Imperato sent me the following email today in response to this post:
"We made significant changes, improvements etc. and the issue with the reliability that dates back to the guns beginning in 1959 no longer applies. This is the best variation of the AR-7 ever made. Its reliable. Use any good brand of ammo, USA made or foreign, all will be okay. The gun seems to function best with high to hyper velocity."
