Henry Customer Letters
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.

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
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

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
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!
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.
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. Sincerely,
MUSCLE SHOALS, AL
Thank you for checking up to see that i received your catlog, I have and really enjoy it. Have also purchased two of your Henry Rifles this month. A Henry H001 and have already had a very nice scope put on it. I also purchased a Henry Golden Boy H004. I have fired a lot of guns in my, almost 69 years, but none as smooth as the Henrys. The Action is outstanding and such a joy to fire. They fit so well to my shoulder, sort of like they were made just for me. Thank you for such special firearms and the part of being "Made in American" is so outstanding.
Thank you for the wonderful job you and your employees are doing, please keep up the good work. I would also like to thank you for Lorie. Lorie is the one I ordered several items from your catolog thru. Had a small problem with my first order but no problem as Lorie had it taken care of in no time. Took the time to call me back and explain just exactly what had happened. You do not find this much anymore especially doing business on the phone.
Again thank you for all you do to produce such wonderful and beautiful rifles. I am attaching a picture of one of my targets to show you what a great job your rifles do. This was at 25 yards, indoors..

THE RIFLE YOU TAKE HUNTING YOU SHOULD HAVE ALLOT OF CONFIDENCE IN IT. THATS WHY I BOUGHT THE HENRY BIG BOY IN A 44MAG
SEE WHAT I MEAN?
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 definetely a good one , thank you for your time and watch for up and coming world ranked target shooter. ( My boy's dream)
Greetings from a satisfied customer.
I purchased my Henry Golden Boy .22 cal almost two years ago. My son and I are proud members of your "Customer Letters" web page. Here is a current photo of my son shooting our Golden Boy at our local range, Oak Ridge Sportman's Association (ORSA).
It is still my favorite gun...
Thanks Henry Repeating Arms,

So far, I have purchased the Henry Big Boy.357/.38, and the Henry Golden Boy .17 HMR. I play to also purchase the Henry lever action .22 Mag., the new .30-30 lever action, and the Big Boy .44 Mag. I love the precision action of the Henry, and I always get compliments on their looks. Thanks for a fine piece of shooting equipment.

Mr. Imperato -
As soon as I got the rifles home, I unwrapped them, photographed them and sent the pictures to my Scouting acquaintances world-wide. Your BSA Commemoratives have been well received by my colleagues in the Scouting community.
One reply I received from my best friend and fellow Scouter included these enthusiastic words -
"Well you fell in it and came up roses. I have no idea what you paid for those rifles but the walnut in the stocks is beautiful let alone the engraving. The commemoration makes them priceless. They certainly are too pretty for wall hangers (that's a joke, son! - no lectures). In future years, regardless of the books that measure such things, they should be impossible to value. I could guess that Mr. Imperato would have to be a ex or current Scouter to want to produce such a work of art for the organization. God bless him. Don"
Like myself, Don is a Scout/Scouter with more than a half century of experience and service in and to Scouting.
I will continue to exhibit my rifles in the Scouting community and let them speak for themselves. Thank you for your efforts on behalf of the Scouting community and all who serve the youth of our nation.
Yours in Scouting,
Ron Shoupe Sr. & Jr.
Dear Mr. Imperato,
Your little Mini Bolt is the best trap line rifle my grandson and I ever used. It's in the bed of my truck from Nov thru Feb enduring all weather conditions and NEVER failed us once. My 8 year old grandson Butch has dispatched a lot of coon, fox and coyotes using the 22 CB Longs out of it. Enclosed is a picture of Butch.
Hard to believe the president of a company as large as Henry has taken the time to help me as you have. I picked up my rifle today. This would not have happened but for your help. The rifle is beautiful and I can hardly wait to shoot it.
I hope you have a Merry Christmas.
