Henry Customer Letters
My wife recently purchased a .22 lever action rifle for me. I like it better than any .22 repeater I've ever owned. I have owned several Glenfield and Marlin semi-autos, and they were not as accurate or as smooth as this Henry lever. I even like it better than my Ruger 10-22. Its accuracy and ease of handling quickly made it the rifle I carry every time I'm in the field or the woods. I fitted it with a 3 x 9 power scope to try it on squirrels, and it has now become my favorite rifle for every application. I only own one .22 rifle that is more accurate, and it is a single shot Mossberg target rifle--not much good for anything except teaching my children marksmanship skills. You build a wonderful rifle.
I would like some information on getting a replacement stock for the rifle. I recently dropped it, an split the butt-stock. Please respond so that I can put my rifle back in service as soon as possible.
I just purchased your .44mag. Goldenboy. Never before in my 49 years of shooting have I seen the accuracy like this rite out of the box. Do have any suggested Amunition. Thank you for this fine firearm.
Tony, I hope you like what I wrote! "The Best of the Best" I have owned many rifles over the years, but never have I owned , a rifle that brought tears. Right out of the box, the shots were grouped tight, knocking me clean out of my socks, these rifles have amazing sights. The money was well worth the price, It wasn't all that much, Which is always nice. The models H001 and H004M, are the rifles of which I speak, They are the beautiful rifles, I brought home just last week! To Louis and Anthony Imperato and crew, I take pen in hand to say... THANK YOU!!! Your newest and most loyal customer,

Dear Henry Arms, I purchased a Golden Boy .22 when i was 15 and I still havent bought a gun since then to top its looks and all around fun of small game hunting and plinking. I never owned a .22 that could roll pop cans at 50 yards, that even using .22's with scopes! i was very pleased with the purchase it is very accurate, well worth the money and i recomend it to anyone
Hello Henry Arms Co.,
I am the owner of Dakota Territory Firearms and am listed on your web site. I just sold a GoldenBoy a few weeks ago to one of my best customers. He was considering a Winchester but I told him about the GoldenBoy Henry in the Magnum Cal. I showed him my personal Henry 22 LR and he was quite impressed with it. I didnt have a Golden Boy on had but after looking at my rifle he decided he wanted one. I ordered in for him and he just called me up tom let me know how satisfied he was with it. In his own words he told me that the gun was one of the nicest 22 Mags he has ever shot and that the action was awsome. Smooth as Glass as he said. I just wanted you to know what some of the people are saying about your rifles as I am sure you already know. I love the one I have and wouldnt sell it for anything.
I walked into a store to purchase a Browning BLR 22, but I took one look at the Golden Boy 22LR and I had to have it. The "action" is so smooth compared to the Browning and the "feel" is incredible....no comparison. I will have years of use and well be a cherished heirloom to pass on in our family. Thanks!

After looking around for an inexpensive .22 I could hunt with, I decided on the Henry Lever Carbine .22 with the large loop. I went with this model because it was slightly smaller than the standard .22 Lever Action, and it looks cool too. Anyhoo, I mounted a cheap ($12.00 BSA) scope on it and went out to sight it in. Off of a sandbag at 50 yards, I was able to consistantly hit groups the size of a dime with CCI ammunition! I couldn't believe how accurate this gun was!
Upon getting the rifle sighted in, I was off squirrel hunting. Although I didn't get my daily limit on the day I went out, I am confident that if enough squirrels had shown their heads, I would have!
You can't go wrong for this price! Thanks for making such a fun, accurate and inexpensive gun!
P.S. After shooting My rifle, my buddy is looking at getting one now too!

I purchased your henry lever action .22 about 3 years ago. I am 12 years old and saved up my money to buy your rifle. I have killed many squirrels,turtels,birds and some other game. I have shot several rounds and will for several years to come. And is extremley accurate so thank you for making such a wonderful rifle.
Just a note to say thanks for building one of the finest little .22 rifles I have ever owned. I purchased a Henry Model no. H001 about six months ago, and it was love at first sight.
I own many rifles and shotguns most of them costing quite a bit, but when it comes to looks and smooth action your Henry does not have to take a back seat to any of them. The accuracy is amazing.
I now plan to add your model H001M and your model H003 pump to my collection. Tell your staff that I appreciate all the fine work they are doing.
HI Just a short note to tell you folks how very pleased I am with your rifles, a year ago I purchased your goldenboy in the 22 l.r & your standard in the lever action, I have been so pleased with shooting those rifle that today I went out and purchased another standard 22 l.r, the quality of your rifle takes a back seat to no one, keep up the good work.
I was looking for a small take-down rifle, and I wasn't pleased with the fit and feel of the Springfield M-6 Scout, nor did I like the feel and quality of the wood-stocked "chipmunk" rifles out there. I'm walking past a dealer's table at a gun show, and there was this sleek "all-weather"-looking Henry Mini-bolt. After seeing that 1 screw took the rifle apart, and sighted thru the Fire-sights, and the small rifle fit my stubby arms and shoulder, I was sold. I bought that rifle, and have enjoyed it plinking ever since. I transport the rifle in a .44 Mag. scoped handgun case, the stock in one pocket and the receiver/barrel in the other pocket, with room to spare.
That rifle is not just for kids. It's my camping companion, and it compliments my stainless Ruger Single-six revolver.
Thank you for a fun and handy product.
I am absolutely the happiest dog on the porch! Last night I received my brand-new Big Boy rifle; whew whee it so dang-pretty, and looks great along side of my Yellow Boy rifle.
You and your-staff of craftsmen at Henry Repeating Arms should be very proud of this product: I suspect it will be a great seller in your stable of quality shooten-irons. I am chompping at the bit for some free time ASAP, too get outside and pop some caps.
I used the U.S. Survival Rifle for a bit of personal protection the other day. My 3 year old son found a small rattlesnake under the desk in the bedroom where my 6 year old son was taking a nap! Yes, the rattlesnake was INSIDE the house! We have no idea how it got inside the house, and was around 2 feet long. A couple of shots from the U.S. Survival and the situation was resolved...except for the holes in the floor under the carpet I have to silicone up. Better a couple holes in the floor than a couple of holes in my kids leg from a rattlesnake bite, though.
Thanks again, and have a great day!
Last year I saw your lever action .22 rifle. Today my wife bought me one ( early Christmas present ). For many years, I have used the Rugger 1022 and thought it was the best .22 ever built. That was untill I fired the Henry Lever Action Long Rifle. This is the best investment I have maid in buying a firearm !! Out of the box the sights were 100% on target. I love this gun !!!! This rifle will be a ground hogs worst nightmare :-)
Thankyou for a WONDERFUL product at a WONDERFUL price,

I recently purchased a Henry Golden Boy. It shoots very accurately and it is a slick looking gun. Your customer service is number 1. Other gun companies can learn something from you folks. Thanks for all your help. I'm looking to save up for the Henry Big Boy. Thanks again for making such a great product and having wonderful customer service.
Yours in humanity,

I bought a Henry Lever Action Rifel and it's so popular in my family that my brother is goingto trade in his Remington for one and my uncle loved it so much he bought one for himself. I could not have gotten a better rifle from any other company.
I have never before in my life written a testimonial on any product. I have been compelled by my experience with the Golden Boy to make this my first.
Last year I had purchased a Winchester M94 in 45 Colt. Being a Baby Boomer and having watched many a western, the purchase probably fits my demographic to a tee and could have been predicted. It was quite some time before I had a chance to shoot the gun. The first shock was the cost of 45 caliber ammo. The second was the fact the Winchester shot 8 inches high and 6 inches left out of the box at 25 yards with very proximate fit/finish and an action that sounded (and felt) like a train clattering down the tracks. The combination of these negatives prompted me to quickly sell it and buy one of your guns. As we all know, 22 ammo is very economical. But the real dividend is the unbelievable accuracy of the Golden Boy, its incredibly smooth action and the wonderful fit and finish. This gun will stay in my family and be passed down through the generations. It is worthy of that in every aspect. Thank you for bringing quality, craftsmanship and value back to American gun manufacturing.
Hi I would like you to know that I have not 1 but 2 Golden Boys. They are the best lever action for smoothness I have ever had. I have had Marlin Lever actions & Winchester also. I traded a Winchester Legecy 9422 NIB for my second Golden Boy. I feel I got the better of the deal even though the Winchester costs more. I had a Marlin Article II and it shot very good but My Golden Boy shoots just as good and Levers even better. I also have a H001 Henry that my Grandsons shoot. It is great for the Twins who are 13.
If there may be any plains in the future for a Golden Boy
with a 24" Octagon Barrel I would be intersted in one. I had a Uberttie 24" Yellow Boy but sent it back barrel was defective. Well thanks for making The Golden Boy. Keep up the great work. Hope to hear from you.
PS And yes the Golden Boy brings out the west in Me
My Grampa bought me a Henry Lever Action rifle with a large loop. It was the first lever action rifle I'd ever shot but it the nicest 22. I've ever shot. And my sister liked this 22. so much my Grampa got another one just like it for her. I'm 10 years old and I really like guns but I don't think i'll ever have another 22. that's as good of quality as this one. Thank's for making such a great rifle and keep it up. Thank's again.
Henry, I was amazed at the accuracy, feel, the action of the .22 cal rifle when on a recent trip home to S.D. USA. My brother had purchased one for his boys (all live in a large city with not many local options for plinking) and brought it home to the ranch on a family trip. His sons are not by any means familiar with firearms. After a sit down on firearm safety, sight usage, we stepped outside for a few shots. The wind had blown a half full 5 gallon bucket of tractor hydralic fluid about 150 yards out on the prairie. With the action closed, I attempted (intentionally) to hand the gun to my nephew who rejected the pass stating the action was not open for a safe transfer. I praised him for attention, opened the action, then saw that old pail instructing him to take a crack at it. Whack, Thud. Oh no I thought,Grandpa will not be happy that his oil bucket now leaks. I was right. Never in this lifetime did I think he would even come close to it. ---------So now I'm shopping for a new bucket of oil and a Henry for myself. Congratulations on your product. Workmanship, visual appeal, and foremost accuracy out of the box will ensure a home for one in my collection.
