Henry Customer Letters
To The Entire Henry Production Team, It took me two months to find my Golden Boy here in the Dallas - Ft. Worth metro, as the demand was simply too high during the holidays. They were hard to find for a while. But, I finally got my Henry Golden Boy last weekend and I just came back from my local range. After taking my family out for a Valentine's Day lunch, my boss and I had arranged to meet at our local range this afternoon to christen my new rifle. We had heard of the legendary smoothness of the original Henry rifles. But, he and I were amazed at the feel, the balance and the precise action of this modern rifle. Our patterns were very tight and consistent at 50 yards. Upon stepping out of the range and into the foyer, a few people stopped me wanting to know what that "beautiful golden rifle" was they had seen us shooting while on the firing line. Of course, I was proud to show them. I have wanted a real, honest-to-goodness link to our western history all my life, at a price I could afford. Your new rifles continue to build upon his original designs yet remain true to the styling of his western classic. The heritage can still be seen and felt in today's Henry rifle. My Golden Boy is a delicate balance; a blend of a very unique heritage and the new modern rifle blended into an all new Henry. You are making a wonderful product I am very proud to own. There is one extra thing included with my Golden Boy that I did not expect...exceptional "value". You see, my Golden Boy has already delivered on every possible measurement of quality, artistry, and pricing. But, you also threw in a lot of fun along with more than a dash of history at no additional charge! My next goal...a Henry Big Boy .367 Magnum. Thank you. Warmest regards,
Hello Anthony and Louis, On Thursday, January 22nd, 2009, I picked up my new Big Boy .44 Magnum from Blue Northern Trading in Ayer, MA. Having never fired a Henry rifle before, my son and I grabbed a couple of boxes of ammo and headed for the range. Shooting the Big Boy was one of the greatest pleasures my son and I have had with firearms. The smile on his face when he fired his first round was priceless. Thank you for such a wonderful rifle and thank you for producing them in America. You have two life long fans in me and my son, and we will be purchasing additional rifles from you. Very truly yours,
John W. O'Donoghue, Jr.
Well, I've been shooting for years, I just purchased a golden boy, I took it out of the box and put 50 rounds through it at 50 yards. I hit the target every time without adjusting the sights. the 5th to the last shot I made I tried to cut the string holding a 4 inch target. I don't believe it but I cut the string with open sights. great gun. I can't wait to purchase the new 30/30 with octagon barrel for white tail season.
Keep up the good work
I have purchased both the Henry Big Boy H006C .45 colt and the Henry Golden Boy .22 Magnum H004M within the past month. They are the best rifles I have ever owned and used. The quality is second to none. Even better that they are made in the USA. I will covet them and be proud to hand them down to my son.

I just registered my 3rd Henry rifle, so far. Thank you so much for building such a fine "Made in America" firearm. I hope too add more to the "Henry collection" soon. Regards,
I bought my first henry rifle the other day and went out and shot it this last weekend. I am 40 years old and have been shooting since I was 6 years old. I love my new henry .17 hmr this is the smoothest action on a rifle I have ever shot ! Anyway I just wanted you and everyone to know I love it ! If you are thinking about buying a .17 hmr get the HENRY , I promise you when you go shoot with your buddies, ALL of them will want to shoot it. Right out of the box it is accurat !
Hi Anthony, We talked about the 22LR I purchased for my son but I had to share this with you. Please see photo's attached. My son wanted a scope on this rifle so I purchased a 3-9x32 scope and immediately attached without shooting. He shot very well with it at the range. Easily dialed it in and he was, as expected, hitting bulls at 75ft no problem. Well you and I talked about swapping out the stocks for a fancy so I took the scope off to prepare for shipping. I decided to take it to the range without the scope just to see what it could do. The pics attached will attest to the out of box quality. I never touched the stock sights before shooting. 9 of the 10 shots are in the 9 and 10 rings at 75ft with a standard NRA 50ft pistol target. Well where did the 10th go you may ask? The second pic shows the last shot as I really could not see how I was doing with the first 9 shots at 75ft. I took a shot at the logo at the far bottom right corner. This was all off hand with my elbow on the bench. You make a fantastic product!!!!!!!!! Thank you!!!! Thanks,
Dear Henry Rifle,
I have just purchased my first Henry Rifle the 17 HMR Wow! this is a really nice gun.
It is just like it stated smooth lever action. It is so fun to shoot that on weekends my family and I go out in our pasture and shoot at targets.
I am planning on purchasing more firearms from Henry. This truly is the best gun I own.

Dear Mr. Imperato, Ever since I was old enough to read I knew about Henry rifles and their role in our civil war. Yes, it was even nice to see them for sale at the local Wal-Mart. Being a blackpowder shooter, however, I never really paid any attention to the modern Henrys. All that changed after we installed our digital t.v. convertor box and I saw your ads on the RTN network. They succeeded in their goal. Yesterday, I purchased a new H001 lever action .22. Of course, it is everything I expected from an American made firearm. The wood to metal fit, the blueing, the machining, and the astonishing stock finish, everything excellent. What sold me, more than all of that, was the passion you showed me for your product in those ads. The faces of the workers looked like people I know. In fact, one of them could of been mine if I was born in Brooklyn instead of Chicago. From those ads I know I can trust you and your workers to not only produce an excellent rifle, but also to stand behind it fully. Thanks again and may I wish you the best of luck and success in the future.
I guess you could sum up my story simply; went into the store to buy some ammo and came out with a rifle instead!
Thank you for both producing an excellent rifle and making it here in the United States.

Hi; bought 3 years ago a .22LR H001 as a Christmas present to myself from a local dealer that imported them. Gun performs excellent, being absurdly accurate even with the cheapest ammo available and has secured me a few tasty preys on hunting trips.
It has become my mandatory "trip plinker" gun; wife also loves the handling and lightness, and many of the shooters around here that have test-fired mine are busting their heads against the walls for not buying one when they were available. In steel silhouette-shooting matches held at a local gun club I've even outshot scoped rifles using the factory sights...Awesome!
Last road trip we took in August was to a mountain town called Huancaya and although I was unable to hunt since it's a natural reserve, still managed to pop a few plinking shots outside the park and take a nice picture (Included) close to a lake, 11,800 feet over sea level.
Keep up the great work. Would love to purchase more of your lever guns when and if they are imported again.

My name is Kip and I have been an avid hunter for most of my 37yrs. I recently purchased my first Henry, a big boy 45colt, and I must thank you for keeping an American legend alive. My rifle is the smoothest lever-action that I have ever used, and I do have a few, it is an absolute joy to shoot. I just wanted to express my appreciation to you for building such a beautiful and functional piece of art!
Looking forward to my next Henry and thank you
Mr. Imperato and Henry Family,
Thank you for manufacturing such a wonderful American made product. I am sold on Henry. I recently purchased my first Henry rifle, but certainly not my last. I am a new very satisfied customer and fan of Henry firearms. I purchased the Henry Repeater Golden Boy H004, 22 LR. I am a Law Enforcement officer and I have shot a vast amount of firearms. I must say operating my new Henry was an awesome experience. The ease of the lever action and accuracy of the firearms out of the box was amazing. I Love the fact that your rifle is made only from American materials and parts.
I own one of your .44 magnum rifles and its the most beautiful rifle I've ever owned. It's also VERY accurate. A full magazine in one ragged hole from a rest at 50 yards !! Thats with the factory sights just as they came from the factory. It does not get better than that. Respectfully,
i purchased a new mod. hoo1 today i got it home and went to my range it is the best out of the box 22 cal.rifle i have every owned this is my 1st. henry but not my last

Hey Anthony, All I can say is....WOW! The Golden Boy is one of the best looking rifles I've ever seen and simply the best I've ever owned. And you know how I feel about the Survival Rifle. A BIG thanks for both. I took them both immediately to my ex-father-in-law's house. He was a collector of both handguns and rifles until his stroke about 2 years ago. I knew that seeing these 2 very cool rifles would brighten his day...and I think the pictures tell the story.
I wasn't sure I was going to be able to pry the Golden Boy out of Joe's hands. He used to load his own ammo until his illness prevented him from seeing.
His day was much better after this. Thanks again, not only for your generous gift, but for making an old man's day
Mr. Imperato, I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with my purchase of a new Henry Rifle! The feel and finish of this firearm is excellent and you may continue to brag about the quality of the wood you use for your stocks. I purchased this rifle (youth model) to enjoy inexpensive and instructional shooting with my son Daniel (age 6). You might find it amusing that when I took it home and pulled it out of the box Daniel smiled real big and said, "that's John Wayne's gun!" My goal is to pass this fine rifle down to him as he gets older as I hope to purchase a Golden Boy for myself when fiances so allow. Allow me to say that since other "American" firearm manufacturers have turn to foreign countries to produce their product, that I can't help but have a sense of pride when I look along the barrel of our new Henry and see "Made in Brooklyn, NY." Keep up the good work and I hope to send a picture some day with my son and I both holding Henrys! Sincerely,
My wife and I have put about 5000 rounds thought our Henry Big Boy. With out any problems or jams. We shoot SASS and practice alot. Now our daughter is starting to shoot and we want to purchase one in caliber .357 The one we have is in .45 Colt. Your product is well made and we would like to Thank You for a job well done.
