Henry Customer Letters
I would like to personally thank you for makeing the worlds FINEST lever action rifles on the market, I purchased the Golden Boy 22 LR recently and you can find no better quality in a rifle, Made in the U.S.A and proud of it!!!!
Dear Mr. Imperato, Thank you. Yes, I did receive your catalog and I ordered, through Callaghan Firearms of Marlboro, Ma, a Henry Big Boy .44. It only took a few days to arrive. I was very excited when I opened the box at Callaghan's and saw my new Henry. It has a nice solid feel to it. The craftsmanship is outstanding. I was even more impressed and delighted with the lever action. It was smooth and easy. I had tried a Winchester and a Marlin the day I placed my order for a Henry. Both the Winchester and Marlin have a stiff action that does not compare favorably to the Henry Big Boy. I called your customer service number when I got home and sang the praises of your product. I took the catalog with me to a family function last weekend and showed it around. I left it with my brother-in-law who is an avid gun collector. I promised that I would let him fire the Henry just as soon as we get past my Son's wedding (this weekend). I have no doubt that you will probably be receiving an order from him in the not too distant future. Again, thank you for doing, so well, that which you do. Sincerely,
Paul C. Ryan
I own a Henry 22 Caliber lever action rifle, and my wife and I enjoy shooting it more than any of our other guns which include a Ruger mini 14 and a Rock River AR 15. It really outshoots both for a lot less money. Thanks for making such a fine product.

Thanks Mr Imperato
I did receive your catalog, and I have since purchased a Golden Boy 22. Its everything your catalog side it was. One of the finest firearms I have ever owned, and certainly the best looking and slickest to operate.
Thanks again for making a fine product.
I have had my new Henry for a few weeks now and have been able to get out and shoot it a few times. I have put a few hundred rounds through it without any problems and it has great accuracy. I must say, i am really impressed with the quality and workmanship, and also the fact that it is all American made. That means something these days when very few things are. Thank you for a fine product at a fair price.
Happy Henry Owner
Bought my 10 year old son his first rifle, a youth 22. Poor kid has to deal with me now, hogging the shooting time when we go out. Absolutely the funnest rifle I have ever shot, and my new favorite. I have my eyes on the Golden Boy in .22 Mag and a Big Boy in .357 and plan on bringing one of each home in the next 30 days. I hope to continue this love affair with Henry rifles for years to come, Lord willing.

I would like to express my gratitude to Henry Repeating Arms, I recently purchased a Mini-bolt in .22lr for my brother for his birthday, I am impressed with the accuracy and quality of this little rifle. Thanks for making such a fine rifle for a child's first gun.
I am the proud owner of a Golden Boy and love it. What a great shooter, it is one of the most accurate, if not the most accurate, of .22's I have ever shot, and every time it take it to the range it always gets compliments from other shooters.
Thanx for a great product and hopefully real soon I'll be able to add a Big Boy to my stable.

Hello Henry Arms. I just wanted to shoot you guys an email explaining my situation. I'm in the market for a .22 mag and I was looking at you guys, Marlin, Winchester, and Remington. I went on Remington's web page and I saw that their .22's are made in SERBIA. Also I saw that most of the Winchesters are made in Russia. WHAT THE HECK!!!!! What has happened to our gun industry in the USA? I was so proud to see that you folks are completely committed to USA manufacturing. THANK YOU for this. I am completely devoted to your product now. Keep up the great American work. Oh yea I love your product!!!!

I purchased a Golden Boy .17 cal. I am pround to show this gun to anyone and tell them its American made. I would also be proud to tell them that there is a gun company in America where a man's word still means something and yours do because you did everything you said you would. I would like also to thank Lori Foote for her help. I have shot this gun many times and it works great. Thanks again.
I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU, FIRST FOR USING AMERICAN VENDORS AND BEING AN AMERICAN COMPANY YOURSELF, AND SECOND FOR MAKING THE BEST RIFLE EVER MADE BY ANYBODY ANY WHERE.

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.
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 just bought one of your rifles and I want to tell you what a beautiful, well crafted item it is!! It is an H001 .22, and is the equal, in workmanship, of my Winchester 30/30, from the 50s. Wish you all the Best and continued success--I will recommend you to everyone.
Dear Mr Imperato Attached please find a target that I fired today off the bench at our gun club range, using one of your Henry Lever Carbines with large loop lever. I bought the gun last week and this was the first time that I targeted that little rifle. The results speak for themselves. I own several 22 rifles and all of tjem are fine, accurate guns. I have two rifles set up for the silhouette game and they're extremely accuracte but I've done a great deal of work on them to make them as accurate as they are. Now along comes my Little Bit (my name for my Henry Carbine) and shows the big dogs that he can run with the best of them! And I didn't have to tweak that rifle to make it more accurate. Over the years, I've owned many rimfire rifles and several lever guns in 22 caliber. Most were'nt as accurate - none was as smooth. Little Bit ranks easily at the top of the list - including those rifles of mine that are specially designed for target shooting. I'm really looking forward to the next Cowboy Silhouette match out at the club. Take cover boys! Littel Bits comi' to town! Sincerely,
Anthony: Recently I sent you a picture of me and my grandson with the two new Henry H001 Lever Action 22LR that I bought for us for Christmas. I liked mine so good, that I bought me a Golden Boy 22LR. I am inclosing a picture of me and my prized Golden Boy. My dad gave me my first 22 when I was 5 years old. I have always loved hunting and shooting. But for the last few years I have gotten away from both. Now, I am excited about taking up the sport of shooting again, especially with my grandson. I also have three granddaughters. If they show an interest in shooting, I assure you they will get a Henry! I thank you for such a fine rifle, at such a good price and one that is made in America! You can't get any better than that. I hope one day to own a Big Boy .44. Again, I thank you for making this a good day for this 60 year old man!

Mr. Imperato, I hope you get this. This is my son Llogan Morris with his first squirrel and your youth model lever action.
Dear Mr. Imperato, On 12/25/05 my parents gave me a Henry Lever action .22 H001. I cannot find the right words to express my thanks for building a high-quality, affordable rifle that is very safe and fun to shoot. Keep up the good work. Many thanks,
Never thought I'd head down to Manhattan's only gun shop and pick up a brand new Henry Big Boy .44 Magnum. My knees wobbled just a bit when I opened up the box and gazed in awe at one of the most beautiful rifles I've every seen. I just cradled it in my arms and remained silent. I'm not exaggerating. The clerk behind the counter had a little smile on his face and said nothing. I think he knew the feelings that coursed through me. Maybe he saw them before with other shooting enthusiasts who love a beautifully crafted shooting machine. It will be coming along to my shooting club upstate with a few boxes of .44 Magnum ammo. I hope the guys up there won't be too jealous. I'll let them take a few shots. But not too many. I know I'm in for a grand time.
