Henry Customer Letters
MERRY CHRISTMAS MR. IMPERATO! THE BADGER WAS SHOT IN WYOMING THIS SEPT. WITH A .17 CALIBER GOLDENBOY AT 100yds!
Dear Henry Rifle Company,
Our family supports and endorses Henry Rifles. The craftsmanship, accuracy and being "Made in America" makes all of us smile. The Phelix family says "Thank you" for providing such great lever action rifles !
Ok, I finally got a few pictures of both of my boys. I wanted to take them outside in the sunshine, but here in rainy SoCal, the sun does not exist. Anyway, my .22 is the blue one, and the .45 is the brass one, as if you didn't know. Hah, Hah. I haven't had a chance yet to shoot the .45, but I hope to during the Christmas break at the indoor range, if not the outdoor range. My .22 I've shot a lot, and it is a blast.
Thank you and your fine company for being such patriots and proud Americans, who take pride in your workmanship, product and values.
I have purchased an engraved Henry Big Boy ,Colt 45 cal., an engraved Goldenboy,.17 HMR, a standard .22 Frontier , octagon barrel, and two of your survival rifles. (I love those!)
What a fine group of rifles!!
Thanks again for being the type of business, that America was founded on. I wish all businesses had your "Golden" ethics.
The Henry rifle collection at the home of John Turk & Carol Thompson grew at Christmas in 2010. John had previously purchased a Big Boy 44M and a Golden Boy 17 HMR for himself and a 22LR Youth Model as a gift for a departing employee. For Christmas 2010, he gave Golden Boy 22 WMR rifles to his son Andrew and son-in-law Justin and a Golden Boy 22 LR to Andrew's friend Dave. The attached picture shows the four Henry rifles now stored in John's gun safe, which include (top to bottom) a Big Boy 44M and Golden Boys chambered for 22 LR, 22 WMR, and 17 HMR, respectively. Carol had arranged for the personalized Henry gun case autographed by Anthony Imperato to be sent to their home and presented it to John on Christmas when Andrew, Justin, and Dave received their rifles. All recipients were delighted with their gifts, which made Christmas all the more festive and merry for their family this year!
Please find enclosed our "A Family of Henrys" photo. We are writing to tell you how proud our family is to own your American made classic rifles. We all really enjoy them, and we love the fact that they are Made in the USA. Thank you very much.
Sir, I would like to thank you very much for the help that you gave Shooters Supply on finding a 45-70 rifle. It took almost a year to get. I do know that Henry Repeating Arms are the most sought after in firearms. That is due to being Made in these United States. Attached is a picture of myself with my new 45-70 dressed up with a nice scope. I again would like to thank you, along with Bob Arthur of Shooters Supply for the help in locating a 45-70 rifle.
Anthony, I watched your 1/2 hour presentation several times and was very impressed by the quality of Henry firearms. I have been collecting firearms for over 30 years and have known of Henry but never really handled one. After I saw the show for the second time I went to my dealer Monday morning and placed an order for a Big Boy 44 mag. He said good luck in today's environment! To my surprise Davidson's had only one and I had my Big Boy by Wednesday. Beautiful and I am proud to own it. I went back a week later and ordered a Golden Boy .22 mag and a survival .22. Not so lucky this time as there are none to be found and so I wait for some to free up. Well worth the wait and I look forward to the day when more inventory hits the market. Thanks and just wanted to take up your invitation to write. Best regards.
Anthony, We just received a Henry H006CD2 45LC, Serial # BB0555CD2 We have sold lots of the Law Enforcement and the Military 22's, but this is the first of the CD2. Wanted to let you know how much we loved it and the customer celebrating their 30 year anniversary loved it. WOW!! You all are Fantastic. We have sold lots of other Henry's over the years and can say nothing but Great things about your company and your team. God Bless you all and THANK YOU for being their for us all. Bob Sluder :-)

Hello, Anthony My name is Jill Brandemuehl from Rice Lake Wisconsin, I recently harvested my first black bear and it was with a Henry 45-70. I would like to thank you for such a smooth shooting large caliber rifle. My boyfriend Jerry Weinert is a manufacturing engineer at your Henry Wisconsin facility, being a little nervous he had to reassure me at the range I would have no problem and I did very well. One shot and the bear was down, within seconds it was all over. I had to send a picture of my 300lb bleak bear and the Henry 45-70. Thank you again!

i got my new henry rifle. it is a beauty. so i made a gun rack out of native walnut and have it displayed in my office. good program.
Just got my Henry 357 this last weekend! Just wanted to say thank you very much for all your help! I have never had anybody or any company go out of their way to do such a great thing for me. I can't thank you enough, but, can say you have a customer for life and a free sales person for all your products for life to.
Mr Anthony, We received the Henry Rifles that Kevin Mcguire helped us with the personalized serial numbers and the rifles are absolutely beautiful. My grandson is too little to understand but I hope one day will cherish this rifle. I am enclosing a picture of Levi and I with the rifle and again,
I have Winchester rifles that are antiques, Ruger firearms, Mosen Ghant rifles - but none compare to my Henry's! Thanks so much for high quality rifles.
I would like to thank you again for your assistance with my latest Golden Boy, the third one I bought this year, SO FAR !!! I can't say enough about the quality of your products and the service you provide your customers. We need more of America to espouse the standards that you have set and maintain and the commitment you make to your customers. You should be very proud of your products, your personnel and yourself.

Mr. Imperato -
Attached is a photo of a big hog I shot with one of your Henry Big Boy rilfes just yesterday.
Dear Mr. Imperato,
I enjoyed reading some of the customer appreciation letters to HRAC on your website. Of course, there are almost too many to read. You have listed 119 web pages (as of this date) with probably an average of 10-12 letters, or more, per page. So I?d estimate at least there are +1500 letters to you. I believe all the excellent qualities of your Henry rifles and the kudos for your company?s excellent service have already been stated. So what can I add that is new? Maybe by sharing my story of how I was introduced to Henry lever-action rifles.
Unlike many Henry owners I read about on your website, I am very new to rifle ownership. I retired one year ago and owning/shooting firearms has become a most enjoyable retirement hobby for me. Early on I purchased only two revolvers and a derringer. But this last March my son-in-law gifted me with a four-year old Henry Lever Action, H001. It had less than 50 rounds shot through it, so it was all but brand new. The wood was a pleasure to look at and touch. But the shooting accuracy is what most impressed me. Simply a pleasure to shoot.
So with that first impressive Henry in my possession, I went to your Henry website. Oops, was that a mistake ? I don?t have the finances to buy all the Henry models I would like to own! Still I purchased my second Henry ? a Big Boy .357 magnum, H006M. I did not think I could improve on the accuracy and smoothness of my .22LR Henry, but the Big Boy pleasantly surprised me. It is also an excellent and fun-to-shoot rifle. My first day sighting/shooting the Big Boy was at my son-in-law?s shooting range. That was a memorable day for both me and him. By the way, our day on the range was also a battle with high winds. So that made our sighting/shooting results ever better!
Sighting the rifle was a snap. Nothing to do. The iron sights were impressively right on target at 150 yards, 100 yards, and 40 yards. I never even touched the sight adjustments. Also quickly learned what ammo the Big Boy likes. Even though I shot .38 special rounds, this rifle is definitely a strong .357 caliber.
To continue the first day on the range. My son-in-law is an ex-Marine sniper, who served in the Viet Nam war. I cannot describe what a superb marksman he is, no matter what type of firearm he uses. His shooting of my Big Boy was the highlight of our shooting day together.
As I mentioned, we shot at a variety of distances. We also tried some five-shot rapid fire at 40 yards to put the lever action through its paces. His first group was all five hits within less than one inch! He shook his head in astonishment when we approached the target. He took the target down and wrote on it the date and specifics of how he shot. The target is now hanging on the wall in his shooting shed. Finally, my son-in-law said he is ready to buy his own Henry .357, because I won?t give mine to him! Needless to say, he was most impressed with the quality and effectiveness of this rifle.
So that is the story of my first range outing with this great-shooting Henry Big Boy. Thanks for making such a quality rifle, and of course it?s so important that ?it is made in America.? The workmanship is excellent. Although I cannot buy all the Henrys I would like to own, I am heading toward my third one. I am seriously considering the Henry Lever Octagon .22 Magnum, and have two shops looking for that rifle now. Along with other Henry owners, I might be soon asking myself, where does it end?
I?m glad to own my two Henry rifles, and am including a picture of my Big Boy. I?m in process of setting up a Nikon scope, so have removed the iron sights and mounted the Henry scope mount. An enjoyable project.
Thanks to you and your entire staff for your good work. Not least, I spent quite a few emails and phone calls working with Mr. Kevin Maguire in your Customer Technical Service Area. He was most helpful in answering all my questions re. my new rifle, especially how to clean/maintain my Big Boy. So I wanted to let you know he provided me the excellent customer service you promised.
Take good care.
A satisfied first-time Henry owner.
