Henry Customer Letters
I just read an article about your company last week in one of my monthly publications, which detailed the history of your company, and I found the history to be quite interesting."
"I didn't mention it in my first note, but I am an FFL dealer. I don't do a great deal of new gun volume, but rather used guns. I do get to talk to a large number of people though, and I will continue to tell the story of how rapidly you responded to me, and my problem. Word of mouth is probably your best "salesman", and you just hired me!"
"Thus far, I have an H001, H001M, a Pump, and 2 Golden Boys in my personal collection and I love them all!"
"Thanks again, and best wishes for your continued success. You have a winning product line that seems to be ever expanding, yet at prices most people can readily afford."
Recently after seeing ads and checking your web site for customer letters, I purchased a golden boy. It is by far the best shooting, most accurate, and the best value 22 rifle I've ever come across. My grandson is now 10 and has learned to shoot the old Winchester my son used. The very first gun he will own is a Henry. Keep up the great work. A new tradition will begin."

This rifle is accurate out to 318 yards! The shooting club (Rio Salado Sportsman's Club) that I belong to has steel targets placed at various distances up to 350 yards. My Lever Action rifle consistently hits the 318-yard target, even from the standing position. I just wanted to drop you a note of thank you, for the great product your staff has produced. In addition, your product is MADE IN the USA. I can assure you this will not be the only Henry Firearms I will own. I have my eye on a new Golden Boy that I plan to add to my gun cabinet."
"Again I want to say Thank you for such a fine product and great value."
"I cannot believe the quality of the walnut on the buttstock and the forend. The smoothness of the action is superb. I am most impressed with the attractiveness of the brass buttstock plate and receiver."
"I also wanted to express my satisfaction with the dealer, Lanier Hardware of Lexington, N.C."
It is well made and the stock is real American walnut!! Reasonable price too. Tell all the people in your factory that they can be proud of the products they make. I am looking forward to getting another Henry rifle."
Every one who sees it wants to know where I got it and what it is. My grandson who is just learning to shoot a real firearm thinks it's the greatest and the fact that it's small and light weight makes it perfect for little shooters. This little gun has it all. It is easy to store and carry. It assembles easily in 30 seconds. It's easy to clean and maintain, and great fun to shoot at the range. Thanks for producing such a fine product and keep up the good work."
Excellent workmanship, fit, finish, trigger, sights, and best of all, this little gem really shoots ! My dealer ordered 2 extra in addition to mine, and after seeing mine, 2 other Dad's bought the other 2 rifles. So, from several fathers in Texas, a hearty thanks for filling a hole in the market place with this quality youth rifle."
my 14 year old son can shoot clay pigeons out of the sky with it (he has a good background so its safe we also don't throw them very high for the 22.) I envy his rifle.

That was before my son gave me this Henry rifle for Christmas. I do not know how I will ever be able to thank him. This is beyond a doubt, the greatest little rifle I have ever shot.
Just the right lenth and weight. I can hit sparrows and varmits. It is great and cheap. My uncle has a golden boy which inspired me to get a Henry. It is awsome. All Henrys rock!
I am impressed with the wood to metal finish and the nice walnut stock and forearm on the rifle - not a cheap hardwood. Also your lever is smoother than the competitions. I was also impressed with the accuracy out of the box. I am enclosing a picture of a target using my new H001 M .22 mag using PMC Predator 40 grain HP's the 3 shot group measured 5/16 of a inch. This was the first time I had shot the rifle and after I got the scope zeroed in this is the group I shot. Not bad for right out of the box and I feel I can do better after seeing what brands of ammo this rifle likes best. I am 50 and have shot a lot of rifles and have owned a lot and your rifle does not have to take a back seat to any of them
I really love this gun. I put a 4 x 32 scope on it . It is deadly accurate. The best squirrel gun I have ever had. So thank you very much.

I would like to take a moment of your time, for my comments. I am a Marine Veteran and have been a firearms enthusiast for forty years. I know quality when I see it, the fit, finish, the butter smooth action. This says a lot for your designs, engineers and assemblers. The real proof was in the shooting. This rifle is accurate and dependable. Keep up the good work.
PS: My wife likes shooting and now she wants one!

"Went home, didn't sleep too well, the next day, went back and bought it !!"
"Mere words on paper, cannot properly express, my pleasure, in owning this piece of art work."
"The workmanship is superb. AND it fires all three .22 cartridges AND even better - it's made in the U.S.A."
"P.S. I'm old & thought about changing my will to have it buried with me - but decided not to - knowing it'd get rusty"
I have been a fan of the .22 rifle for almost 40 years. This little rifle undoubtedly has the smoothest action of not only any lever action that I own, but any that I have had the privilege to shoot. Again thank you for creating a rifle that any red blooded American would be proud to own"

That's the kind of service that keeps people coming back. I have told several friends about your great guns & the fine service that I have gotten from you, with your quick e-mails & the phone calls. And as I told you on the phone, I will soon be ordering a Golden Boy, because of your good service."
I've never had a rifle that the action was so smooth right out of the box. That rifle is a tack driver. I like it so much that today I finally was able to purchase a GB in 22WMR. I haven't had a chance to fire it yet. But I think the action is actually smoother that of my GB 22LR, if that's possible."
"You folks make the finest 22 rifle that I've ever owned or seen. I worked (until recently) in a gun shop for ten years and I've seen, handled and shot most of the 22 rifles on the market today and a few that are no longer in production. But you folks are missing the boat in the lever action rifle market."
"Let me explain. I've been involved in Cowboy Action Shooting for the past seven years. I travel all over the country for matches. CAS is the fastest growing shooting sport in the world. The Single Action Shooting Society (aka SASS) the mother club of CAS, has over 50,000 members and growing. They estimate that only about half of those participating in CAS on a regular basis are SASS members. 22 caliber pistols & rifles are allowed in side matches but not in the main stages of the matches. Those rifles must be in pistol caliber 32 & up."
"If you would start producing the Golden Boy in 45 Colt, 357 or 38 spl, 44/40, 44 spl, 32/20 you would sell a ton of them. You wouldn't be able to keep up with the demand. The GB is beautiful, and the actions are as smooth as oil on glass. That is what cowboy shooters are looking for. If you ever make it in 45 Colt, there'll be one added to my collection pronto."

I have never seen such a look on a boys face when I gave it him. That look was worth a million dollars. He got tears in his eyes and a smile as wide a sunset over the ocean. Thank you guys for making a great and good lookin rifle as the golden boy is. His first words were it's just like the rifle the cowboys used. Thanks again."
I could not believe the beauty of the weapon along with the very affordable price. I asked him the following day how it operated. He said, "It's a sweet little thing". That's all I needed to know. I went out and got myself one today. I have owned several rifles. Never have I taken a gun out of the box, load it up and plink the center of the bull's-eye at 25 yards without adjusting the sights or anything. Unbelievable! Thank you for a wonderful weapon that is sure to bring me years of enjoyment. I'll take a Henry over anything at any price!"
Last week my son and I got a chance to go to the range and 'give'r a spin'. I have never been nor will I ever be a great shot. I'm not a "natural" but I was very pleased with the accuracy of this rifle. The 'fluidity factor' ( if that is not a word, it oughtta be) was amazing. The action is unbelievably smooth. Five or six years ago I looked into buying a lever action .22 and after seeing the prices I changed my mind. When I saw the price on the Henry I went to your web page and got a catalog and read letters from customers.... I did my homework. When I got my Henry I was so pleased. I thank you for making a quality .22 rifle for an outstanding price. Keep up the great work."
