Henry Customer Letters
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 have owned a golden boy over a year. I can honestly say, I am 62 years old anr have never owned such a fine rifle!
I had to have one of your quality firearms. I am pleased and proud to say that I purchased the 22cal. Lever Action-Model H001. This fine firearm is a first class rifle, the quality of workmanship ,smooth action and superb accuracy are 2nd to none. I would like to thank You and all of your committed and dedicated employee's for turning out such rare made in AMERICA quality firearms. There is no doubt that Henry firearms are produced with the quality and care that will reward a purchaser with a lifetime of enjoyment. I am confident that a Henry firearm is of the QUALITY to be enjoyed not only by the purchaser but also his or her grand children. Thank you for a wonderful quality AMERICAN made product. I wish you and Henry Repeating Arms Company many continued years of success. Have a safe and Happy New Year.
Dear Sirs, Recently I purchased an H001 Henry rifle. I took it to the range a couple times, and then took my wife with me after I had drifted the rear sight some to get the windage right. To make a long story short, she's 54 years old and has very little gun experience. After learning the basics of safety and aiming, she is hooked. Worse for me, she's hooked on the Henry! Now, I have to buy another, as soon as I can get her back to work, as she is laid off at the moment. All it took was hitting that eight inch circle at twenty five yards, then she hit it a few times at fifty. That really did it. Now, she's confiscated it for her own. I think the little H001L suits me great, and I love the carbine length too. Thanks again, Henry, you made a believer out of me and a shooter out of my wife. You guys have a great product and I enjoy it a lot.

Bought a Henry Lever Action .22 cal for my 12 years son for Christmas, This is an acceptional firearm for him . He has become an avid outdoors guy and has been very successful in local trap shooting and other hunting and shooting activities. What a great way to bond with my son and develope a respect for firearms. This choice of gun was definetly a good one , thank you for your time and watch for up and coming world ranked target shooter. ( My boy's dream) Ray Brown.
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,
Anthony, I am beyond impressed with the quality and 100% American made parts of the Henry rifle. Shooting is a passion with me and having a rifle of this quality and asethetics makes it that much sweeter. The Henry Big Boy .44 magnum is beyond beautiful and after looking at Marlin and Winchester lever action rifles there is no comparison of smoothness of action and down right shootability. The octagonal barrel makes this rifle look antique but also acts as a bull barrel to help tame the wicked .44 magnums I choose to shoot. I despise a hooded front sight and the open front sight of the Big Boy allows me to see more of the field down range.
Have a safe and happy holiday season. Your company makes my chest swell with pride when I think that Americans can still make the best products in the world.
This is bar none the best lever action .22 for the price!
My oldest son just received a .22 cal Henry Lever Action Rifle for Christmas from his grandfather. Having grown up with a Ruger 10/22 all my life, I was surprised at the weight and balance of the Henry Lever Action. My father-in-law stated that he had a Henry .22 Magnum Rifle and wanted to get one for his grandson. We spent the last few days shooting, and I just wanted to say that this little gun has the smoothest action of any rifle I have ever shot. We tore through about 300 rounds over the past couple of days and the Henry kept coming back for more. And I get to teach my son the responsibility of cleaning the gun after each use (with a Hoppe's 9 Kit). I am interested at looking at the other calibers and hope to make a purchase on a new Henry Rifle this coming 2009 year.

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 !
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!!!!
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 watched with great interest yesterday as Directv aired the hour-long special on your company. I can't tell you how proud I am to own a Golden Boy, especially after watching!
The only Christmas gift I really wanted this year was the Henry. I felt like the kid in "A Christmas Story", dropping hints and trying to lead my wife with her gift ideas. I'm a 46-year old native of Southwestern Virginia, and my dad and I always shared our love for shooting. We lost him eight years ago in January, and I've been a gun collector of sorts ever since.
I got my Golden Boy, and couldn't be happier with it. The quality and beauty are evident right out of the box, and the fact that it's 100% American is one of the most important reasons I chose the Henry as my gun of choice.
May God continue blessing you and your family, and the Henry Repeating Arms Company! If you're ever travelling through Virginia, we're right off Interstate 81, near the Tennessee line. I'd love to show you around our town! Keep up the good work, my friend!
Splitting a card 25 feet with my new Henry Lever
I sent you an e-mail about me (Joe's Fancy Guns) and that I had seen (Extreme Marksmen) on the History Channel a week or so ago, and it looked like they were using your Henry lever action 22 with the large loop, so I ordered in one from Jerry's Sport Center my wholesaler that I use a lot, and then we got over a foot of snow on the 28th of January, so soon as I had the lanes opened up I took the little Henry back toward the barn and stuck the little white card in a snowbank and fired off at 25 feet two shots and both hit as you can see from the pictures. Not bad considering I had never fired the gun before. So the little new Henry is really a keeper!!!!
Greetings to All at Henry Repeating Arms,
I know it might seem strange, but with the current political climate I felt compelled to purchase my grandson his first rifle. I am enclosing a picture for your review. I did not want to wait too long to get him set up. In the picture he is 4 days old. Maybe some kind of record. I actual picked it up before he was born, but I didn't think guns in the hospital was the proper approach.
I promise to write back and send another picture when he is actually trained on firearm handling and shooting.
Again Thanks for your excellent product.
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.
Henry owner from Peru
On Thursday, Jan. 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.

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
