Henry Customer Letters
I was very impressed by the out of box accuracy of my new Henry rifle, and the smoothness of the action. right out of the box I shot a few rounds offhand, with some good hits, then shot a 30 round group that you could cover with a henry coffee mug. I then suspended a playing card with a piece of tape and shot it swinging in the breeze. attached is a picture of the results, no need to adjust the sights.
I love your product and plan to purchase more in the future. Keep up the great work,
Ralph Barnett Hoschton
the henry golden boy is the finest small bore rifle that i have ever shot a friend of mine put his ruger 10/22 with a scope up against my golden boy and i trumped his ruger and i out shot him using open sights
We finally got a picture of my husband Kevin with his Big Boy while we were at our upstate NY property this past weekend. Kevin loves his Henry Big Boy I got him for Christmas. Despite my being out of work, we still thought it's a worthwhile purchase because "it's an heirloom". Best Regards,
Kevin & Sharon Fick
You may remember me as the Oregon Coast resident who had ordered your Big Boy rifle from a local dealer but was suffering a significantly lengthy wait for delivery.
I contacted you directly and you interceded with the distributor to accomplish a speedy shipment.
I want to thank you for your help and impart the following:
A) Upon receipt, I removed the Henry from the box, ran a bore snake through it twice and loaded it with ten (10) Magtech 45 Colt 250gr. L-Flat cartridges.
B) I then proceeded with a good friend to nearby hills to fire the rifle. At age 69 years, I had not fired a rifle for 50 years. I shot 5 rounds at plastic water bottles at 40 yards against a man-made background of soil... blowing them all over the place.
C) My friend suggested a new target. He set up a spent 12 gauge shotgun shell on the ground and at the same range.
Kindly view the attached photograph as it is a testament to the cutting-edge accuracy (right out of the box) of the Henry rifle. I am a proud owner of my rifle.
"Load on Sunday, Shoot All Week Long"
Just wanted to write to say thank you. I had called a short time back that I had broken off of a Henry youth. The person I spoke to was great and sent the piece right out to us. It's service like this that will keep companies in this country afloat in these hard times. Other companies could take a lesson from you and we just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with your service and your product.
Dr Mr. Imperato,
Thank you so very much for the practical and honest advise that you and your staff gave me over the phone today. It has not been my experience that the president of a company would be eager to take a simple customer service enquiry, as you did. You and your staff were a delight to speak with.
As mentioned during our brief conversation, I am a born and bred Australian living in Canada. In order to purchase my Lever Action .22 I sold a very nice (and expensive) European made .22 rifle that I had purchased back in Australia. I was expecting a certain compromise in quality compared to this finely made European rifle due to the very reasonable cost of the Henry. Was I ever surprised! The machining and functioning of the action are flawless, it can be cycled quietly when you want it to be quiet, the fit & finish are exceptional, the grade of walnut is well beyond my expectations, the blueing is deep and rich and the rifle is remarkably accurate to boot! What I have acquired is not just a shooting tool, but an heirloom.
Congratulations to the management team and everyone at Henry Repeating Arms, from the engineers and gunsmiths to the guy who sweep the floor and turn the lights off at night. Your American pride and workmanship show through in every aspect of your product. I think that Benjamin Tyler Henry would be very proud that you have carried on his tradition of fine American craftsmanship. I also doubt that the customer service Henry Repeating Arms provides could have been any better even in the 1860's when we all know that manufacturers stood behind their products and put their good reputations on the line in order to sell them.
Thanks for a beautiful rifle that will last for generations.

Have your 22 mag and love it. Show it to everyone and let them shoot it. They are impressed. Just finished sighting mine in with a new scope so I can knock off a gnat's eyebrow. Amazing how accurate it is. Thought I was missing the target until I determined I was putting shots in the same hole at 50+ yards.
Hello I live in southern Iowa and iIlove good old classic American firearms and when I got my first Henry rifle I was not disappointed. It is a Henry 22 Long Rifle - it is the best rifle for squirrel, rabbits and all other small game. Its quick, accurate and a beautiful looking rifle and I plan on buying more Henry rifles and will be proud to pass them down to my children someday and hope that they will keep the Henry Repeating Arms alive for generations - thank you Anthony Imperato and your employees and God bless
P.S. Happy Hunting
I have purchased a Henry Boy Scouts of America commemorative rifle ( 22 LR caliber ). It is a beautiful piece of work. As fine as advertized.
Dear Mr Imperato I have recently purchased a second Henry rifle ( a 22 maginum pump ) and I am just as impressed with it as the first rifle I purchased ( a Henry Goldenboy ).
I did receive your catalog and I appreciate your follow up letter very much. It shows that you care about each and every customer. Your employees should be very proud of the quality product they produce.
I recently purchased a new pickup (6 months ago) and have never received so much as a thank you or follow up call from them. You would think a $25,000 purchase would warrant a thank you ? If the US car companies would develope the same attitude as the people at The Henry Repeating Arms Company they would be much better off.
I do plan to purchase another Henry as a gift in the near future. Sincerly;
Dear Henry Repeating Arms Keith Martin, 8 years old, started shooting his Henry Mini Bolt .22 rifle at age 5. Recently scored "Marksman" qualification during an Appleseed Shoot in Yanceyville, N.C. Quite an accomplishment considering the timed segments were just long enough for Keith to fire 4 to 7 shoots as opposed to the 10 shoots of semi-auto fire the course is designed for and attending only one day of the two day event.
Thanks again, we look forward to many years of enjoyment with our Henry firearms.
Own two henry rifles, H001 and Golden Boy, both in 22LR. Absolutely love both of them
Rod was so pleased to receive your email yesterday about wanting a picture of him with his Henry. He was absolutely thrilled about the campfire mugs as well. He has read your email to anyone who will listen including everyone at the snowmobile club meeting last night. Thank you very much for your thoughtfulness and the enjoyment you have given to my husband.
I have gone to your webpage and ordered one of your hats for Rod as he always wears a hat. He will be tickled with it as it is blue. Perhaps you can put the hat in with the mugs and save on the shipping.
We are looking forward to seeing Rod's picture on your webpage!
Thank you again for the mugs. We are looking forward to using them!
I love my henry big boy, and was very pleased with your customer service.
Hi, I just bought a Henry Big Boy Rifle. I have had a lot of fun with it. Right out of the box with iron sight's the bullet holes were touching each other on the target. It look's as good as it shoots very solid.
I JUST PURCHASED THE BEAUTIFUL HENRY GOLDEN BOY FOR MY HUSBANDS BIRTHDAY< I DONT THINK I EVER GAVE HIM A GIFT THAT HE LIKED THIS WELL,AFTER 34 YEARS OF MARRIAGE I GOT THE PERFECT GIFT< THANKS EVER SO MUCH,
I Love my Golden Boy! I went to my first turkey shoot and hit the string 1st shot, open sights, 50 yards. Awesome! I look forward to getting my next one! Please put me on your mailing list for catalogs and new product info. Thanks!
I THOUGHT YOU MIGHT ENJOY THIS PICTURE AS MUCH AS LITTLE GRANDSON THOMAS TITUS THE III .
HIS MOTHER USED TO SHOOT IN OUR JUNIOR RIFLE CLUB AND THOMAS SAYS HE IS READY TO LEARN. MY FAMILY HAS ALWAYS LET THE YOUNG ONES START WHEN THEY CAN AIM THE GUN.
AT THIS TIME I WOULD LIKE TO COMPLEMENT YOU AND YOUR ALL AMERICAN MADE ARMS. PLEASE KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
I AM THE FATHER OF 14 CHILDREN AND 22 GRAND CHILDREN DO YOU THINK THEY WILL WARE OUT MY HENRY GOLDEN BOY?
ONE OF MY GRANDSONS HAS A UNDER TEEN AGE FRIEND THAT HAS A TERMINAL ILLNESS, ONE OF HIS THINGS ON HIS BUCKET LIST WAS TO HAVE HIS OWN HENRY GOLDEN BOY. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE HAD A PICTURE OF HIM WHEN HE OPENED THE BOX. THE BEST PART IS THAT HE CAN REALLY SHOOT THIS GUN. HE HAS A LOT OF THINGS TO DO ON HIS LIST YET BUT HE IS ALWAYS READY TO GO SHOOT. THANKS FOR HELPING HIM THROUGH HIS LIST.
I brought my new 22 Golden Boy to my pistol club today. I invite several to put a few rounds through it. They were in awe, at the smoothness of the action and overall appearance. They were all in envy. This was a proud moment in the gun world for me, and I thank you for it.
Finest quality rifel I have ever owned !!!!!
