Henry Customer Letters
Dear Mr. Imperato -
Thank you sir, for the catalogue and the nice follow up message.
My wife and I indeed purchased a Henry .22 rifle (Model H001) for use in an indoor SASS-type shooting league during the cold winter months here in Ohio. We are very pleased with the workmanship, quality and accuracy of the rifle. Fresh out of the box, after a routine cleaning and inspection, it hits dead-on and cycles without failure in this rapid-fire competitive event. It compares very favorably to our center-fire Winchester replicas (1866 and 1873 models), each of which costs 5 times as much the Henry!
The only "bad" news - several other league members also have Henry rifles...the competition is tough! To paraphrase "Mel" (Danny Glover) in the movie "Silverado": "Do you know what a Henry can do in the hands of someone who knows how to use it?"
Please pass on to all the folks at the HENRY REPEATING ARMS company our thanks and appreciation for an excellent product at an unheard of price these days! A tremendous value and a tribute to all the people in the Henry family. Also, we've attached a couple of pictures of us practicing with our new Henry.
Also, we wish all of you a safe and happy holiday season.

Hello! I just wanted to say, I have a 'standard' Henry lever action in .22LR and also a "Golden Boy" in .22LR and although I've fired many a rifle in my sixty years, these two rifles impress me to no end, accuracy is amazing, and the action? My word, it is smooth as silk.. Hopefully, one day soon, I'll be buying more Henrys, but stepping up a bit in caliber...
Keep up the good work, you provide EXCELLENT firearms!
My son and I now have two Henry rifles and we're so impressed with the quality we're looking for another.

Dear sir I have three of your awesome rifles. the H001, H004 and H006 and next month I will be the proud owner of the H006C. I hope to own them all in time. Thank you for building such a fine rifle. Henry Repeating Arms is the best by far. Thanks again
I own a Henry Big Boy H006. I love this rifle! It is the smoothest lever action I've shot. I would like more information your new 30-30s.
Dear Mr. Imperato, I just acquired my Henry Golden Boy (H004) last weekend. I became a "plinker" with my Dad many years ago and have continued the tradition with my own son . I have owned and used many fine .22 caliber target rifles but your Golden Boy has to be the finest I've ever encountered. This rifle was perfectly sighted right out of the box . It's accuracy can only be described as superb! The action of the lever is as smooth as silk . Aside from its exceptional performance features , its the most beautiful firearm I've ever owned . If I had to offer a crticism, it would be that the picture in the catalog simply doesn't do the actual rifle justice. You and everyone else associated with Henry Repeating Arms can be justfiably proud of your product. I want to both congratulate and thank you for manufacturing such a fine rifle. Sincerely,
Dean A. Smallwood
Hello, I have owned my H001Henry for over two years now and couldn't have been happier with the performance. I think the workmanship is next to none. This last fall my brother in law, Rocky Austin got his hands on my Henry and had to have one himself. His wife got him an H001 for Christmas and since then, weather permitting (we have had a rough winter up here in Maine!), he has been shooting up a storm. I am enclosing a picture of one of his targets and the picture speaks for itself!
All I can say is that I am 57 and have been shooting and hunting since I was 12. I own several firearms. I have Marlin and Winchester levers. I have NEVER bought a firearm that was as SMOOTH in the action and also never just took one out of the box and it be right on target. The little 22 octagon barrel buckhorn sites was a real pleasure to pull the trigger on that rifle. THANKS for keeping the quality. I will be in the future buying the engraved receiver for my little jewel 22.
I received a golden boy for Christmas from my Dad. I love it and am already planning on buying him one for Father's Day!
Here's a picture of myself and my two brothers opening our new rifles all at the same time. I'm on the left, my brother Britt's in the middle and my brother Brandon's on the right. Happy hunters! I'll send you the pic in June after we give Dad his gun. We've decided to personalize it and get the wall frame to go with it. Regards, Brian
Dear Sir, Something frightening occurred this Christmas past: I realized that everything under the tree---almost everything in my house, for that matter---was made in China! This is scary! There was one exception: a Henry rifle that Santa brought me. What outstanding quality! Thanks for "keeping it in the USA," and for making a product that I can pass along to future generations---long after that Chinese crap is in the landfill. You folks rock! Jim Quinlan
HI ANTHONY, I TOOK MY NEW HENRY BIG BOY 44 MAG OUT FOR SOME TARGET SHOOTING THE OTHER DAY AND ALL I CAN SAY IS THIS RIFLE IS THE SMOOTHEST OPERATING RIFLE I'VE EVER OWNED. THE BEAUTY, ACCURACY AND WORKMANSHIP ARE THE BEST ANYONE COULD HOPE FOR. THIS NEW HENRY IS MY SIDE KICK FROM NOW ON. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE FINE CRAFTSMANSHIP IN THESE RIFLES. I'VE ADDED A COUPLE OF PICTURES AS I SAID I WOULD. THANKS AGAIN. GOD BLESS AMERICA. SINCERELY,
Dear Mr. Imperato,
It was a honor and pleasure to have met the President of Henry Repeating Arms Co. the maker of the greatest gun ever made. Your rifles are very accurate, fun to shoot and so very handsome. The Henry display was the first one I was looking for once I arrived at the NRA Convention. And it was everything I thought it would be... pure class. My name is JoAnn Testa and I am from the small town of Lake Linden located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I presently own all the Henry rifles except your Big Boy Special Editions. But hope to someday. Again it was great meeting you and look forward to future Henry's.
I have wanted a Henry Rifle for years after growing up and watching all the good Ole cowboy movies, but girls just didn't ask for guns for Christmas. Then a couple years ago I picked up a brochure that I just carried with me all the time, dreaming of a "Henry Golden Boy .22" Last spring I made mention of this gun to a dear friend of mine and showed him the brochure. I was totally shocked in November when he gave me the Henry Golden Boy as a gift for helping him.
So thank you Anthony for Henry Repeating Arms and keeping them American made.
Thank you Steven for my .22 rifle that I've dreamed about for years because the Golden Boy isn't just for Boys anymore!
I'm writing on behalf of my brother, Jeremy Eads. On a recent hunting trip into Ontario, Canada, my brother encountered a very scary sight. A black bear weighing almost 900 lbs charging him. This is why I'm writing. The gun that saved my brother's life and killed a potential Boone and Crockett record was a Henry Big Boy .44 Mag.
I know a lot of .22 shooters that have caught the lever action fever. Most of us have discovered the great value of your products and I read in the Internet forums often about new Henry owners. The Henry is my grab and go rifle. It shoots great groups, posseses a smooth action, and I have used it with equal effect on groundhogs, golfballs, pop cans and paper. Mine prefers Federal bulk pack ammo. That makes it easy on the wallet as well. Thanks again for the personal service, and commitment to your customers. It's so nice to see an American company producing great quality, affordable products. I wish you continued success.
That being: 1) Reliability 2) Affordability 3) Appearance
When I arrived in Louisiana, a tropical depression had already set in. I was down there for four days and it poured the whole time I was there. Due to the weather the gators were scarce. We really had to work for the two that I harvested. I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about the performance of this new rifle in such conditions.
This rifle was put through everything imaginable. It was knocked over, constantly exposed to a mixture of salt air and rain and even knocked out of the boat by a thrashing alligator! I have never put any of my firearms through such a test before. I can honestly say that your rifle performed flawlessly! It definitely proved its reliability. The thing that also impressed me, was how you could produce a beautiful rifle at such an affordable price.
Of all the firearms I own, this is by far my favorite! My seven-year-old daughter likes to go plinking with me, but my old 22 cal. is still a little long for her. So without any hesitation I purchased your Henry Mini Bolt. It fits her perfectly and she just loves it!
I just wanted to let you folks know what a fine product you have. I have also attached a picture of me with the ten foot gator that I took, thanks to your rifle."
Real men own a Henry !

Just bought the Henry lever action .22 LR and I LOVE this gun. I will not buy another brand again!
I have enclosed some pictures that show how accurate one of my Henry 22cal. are.This is a picture of a 308 shell with the primer shot out ,which can be done with this rifle time after time!What promted me to send this e-mail is that ,I see so many that say they can hit a penny at a certain distance with optics,but something is to be said about an excellent made rifle with iron sights!

I purchased one of your Henry .22 rifles several years ago and all I can say is I wish I had a nickle for every round my kids grew up firing from the rifle. It is a favorite of both my teens now and has performed without flaw for ten +/- years now. Thanks for building an affordable firearm with quality that matches the tradition the name carries.
