Henry Customer Letters
The action is as smooth as the 22 rifle and will be an important part of my guns for many years to come. Also my daughter (who is a much better shot than I) has already decided that she will be next in our family line to own these rifles. In today's confusing business world of CEO's and company presidents gleaning all their profits from their companies, while their employees and stockholders lose millions, it is rewarding to have someone like yourself, who takes charge and leads his employees in giving their customers all the considerations that you bestowed upon me, so that I could purchase my Henry Goldenboys with like serial numbers. You sir are a wonderful example that all company presidents & CEO's should follow! Again, thank you for assisting me in my purchases and I strongly recommend any who enjoy craftsmanship & fine shooting, should indeed purchase your rifles."
When our local dealer handed me the display model, I was instantly impressed by its Old West looks. My first thought was "this would be perfect for teaching the grandkids Cowboy Action Shooting." Then, I worked the lever. The smooth action sold the gun"

Looks great; shoots great. I can hit an empty .22 carton at 50 yards with it from a kneeling position. Great gun for cold weather shooting (no lever to get your gloves caught on!) Great price, too! I hope that some day you make a pump rifle in a centerfire pistol caliber such as 38/357 or 44 caliber."

My hunting partner bought a browning lever action and I bought the Henry. He shot his then mine and he could not believe how smooth the Henry is over his Browning. He stated that he could have bought 3 Henrys for what he paid for the browning. "
It is a fun and super accurate gun well capable of reaching out at 100 yards and keeping a tight pattern. I have shot against guys with expensive and jacked up 10-22 Rugers and kept up with them. I am dying to ask if you are going to make your version of the new .17 Rimfire that is now out. If you do, I and everyone that has used my Henry wants one from you guys as well. Keep up the good work, and thank you for your time."
It feels great; shoots great, right out of the box, and is a beautiful rifle just to look at. I've shown it to several of my friends, and I'm pretty sure they will be buying Henry's before long. This rifle is the icon of our country's heritage; and yet the price is very reasonable. I'm nearly 60 years old; have owned several rifles; but this Henry golden boy is unsurpassed. God bless you all at Henry Repeating Arms, and thanks again for producing a rifle of this quality!! "
It is a great looking and well built rifle and the feel of it is just perfect for me. I took it to a firing range and was the envy of my friends who did not have a Henry Rifle. The ease of loading, cocking and firing the rifle is very smooth and I am glad I decided on the Henry .22 LR."
"Being in my 60's, I finally bought on of the best .22 LR's on the market. HENRY"
"Thank you for the fun"

Nicest stock of any rifle I own! Just beautiful. Very proud of it. Thanks for a great product, and best wishes for tremendous growth and prosperity of you company."
I hold those attributes and more in my hands as I pick up my new Henry Repeating Arms Lever Action .22. Your people are to be congratulated for their care and skill in producing this firearm."
"I hold a sense of "Tradition" very dear. "Made in America" means the world to me. Those two factors brought me to my local Henry dealer. It was the feel of the .22 that sealed the deal. Experiencing the smoothness of the soon-to-be legendary action first hand, appreciating the precision fit of its parts, and admiring the beauty of the walnut grain; I knew this rifle would be mine."
"Please, pass along my thanks to everyone on your staff for designing, creating, and marketing such a fine firearm."
I liked it so much that also went out recently and purchased the 22 Magnum. Both rifles are top of the line. They'll stand up against the best in my opinion. Keep up making excellant rifles."
PS. I am looking forward to purchasing the 22 pump action thats my next one.

I have always wanted a lever 22 but would never pay the price tag for a Winchester, Browning or Marlin. I thank you for offering one at a reasonable price. I have had two people ask me what was wrong with mine and when I said not a thing they both asked "well why does it open so easily?" One even thought parts were missing due to its glass like smoothness of operation! I told them that Henry simply perfected the lever operated .22 and now they both own one which is good because I let one of them borrow mine and had to pry it back from him! He wanted to buy mine! Oh well he may have had to wait in line but he's got his own now. The golden boy is next on my list as well as my friends... I would like to see the H001 offered with a case hardened steel frame someday as it will look good on display beside the golden boy."

Your company is the greatest. Thank you again. I really appreciate your great staff at your company. I am thinking about purchasing another of your guns. The two that I have are super just like your company."
His grandpa reports he loves shooting it and can't wait to go hunting! The Golden Boy was a tremendous hit at our auction and the engraving pictured will become an annual tradition. We look forward to featuring Henry rifles at next year's Banquet and to a continuing partnership with Henry Repeating Arms."

My daughter started shooting a couple of years ago and I started her training with a very old bolt .22 that I own. The bolt gun is very accurate and was a great training tool. For hunting though, the old bolt proved to long and heavy for her to use without a rest. I searched for a smaller and lighter rifle for her to use. I decided on the youth model lever gun made by your company. I have to be honest and say that I expected to loose some of the accuracy that she had gotten used to. WOW. Was I ever wrong. This little rifle produced excellent grouping right out of the box and had one of the smoothest actions I have ever worked. It was an excellent choice and I will definitely be purchasing a second one for my son in a couple of years when he gets old enough to go a field with his sister and myself. "
"Thanks for your efforts gentlemen."

I mean the quality is just great. I also think you all should add a .22 Hornet and a .220 Swift to your line up."
This is a great rifle, I set up a target and shot 15 times. Sure enough, when I went and looked there were 15 holes. I also love the lever action, it's a great way to repeat a rifle. The 15 shot magazine is an improvement over the 5 shot clip on my old .22. I'm looking forward to your next rifles. "
"P.S. I think you should make a bigger bore rifle, like a thirty-thirty."
It is good to know that your company has taken such a position and uses the"Rifleman" as a method to reach real Americans."
"Today, the 26 September 2002, I went to Vance Guns in Columbus, Ohio because you listed them as a stocking dealer of your products. I found and purchased "The Golden Boy" .22 Cal LR model manufactured by you. What a remarkable firearm it is, and you company slogan, "Made in America and Priced Right", truly says it all."
"My only regret is that I did not have such an awesome firearm when I was 15 years old instead of 75. Over the years I have hunted and shot competitively as a civilian and as a solider, but I cannot say that I enjoyed shooting any rifle any more than "The Golden Boy.""
"Thank you for making this remarkable firearm and for having such a knowledgeable dealer as Vance Guns."
"Best wished for long lasting success."

Because of the tang sight I installed, I was put in the class with scope sights, but I was still only six points away from winning a medal! I also took my little Henry on a prairie dog shoot this summer and it proved to be effective out to almost 100 yards. I absolutely love it. Thank you so much for building such a wonderful little tool."
It has one of the smoothest actions I have ever used. I am also looking to buy the Golden Boy .22 Magnum. I just wanted to let you know that I really do enjoy this gun and look forward to see new guns of yours in the future. Keep up the good work."
"I give each of my students a copy of your product material."
