Henry Customer Letters
My wife squashed my idea of buying 3 of the Big Boys since I had already bought 3 of the Golden Boys, but I did get my Big Boy today. Just got finished registering it on-line, number BB 1480. It's beautiful, thanks for maufacturing such as beautiful gun. I hope to use it for many years to come.
It is cold (22 degrees F), but still a shooting day. Look at the shells at my feet in one of the pictures. This is my back yard. I'll sweep them off the concrete and nature will make them disappear. I shoot a lot and am enjoying my Golden Boy. It shoots more accurately than I can see. I may have to get another one to scope to see what it will really do. The pond behind me is an 8 acre pond stocked with bass, bream, catfish, and carp. I use ultralight tackle to catch and release without touching the fish. I don't want to harm the fish since I don't eat them. I have been given a great life. I get to serve my country by taking care of veterans, and I get to enjoy the outdoors just by stepping out back. I thought you might enjoy the photos.
I have included a picture of my Golden Boy, I sent the butt stock to D.L. Curtis Services in Ohio, He does Laser Inlay work also hand gun grips. I am very proud of the way it turned out, I made the leather window to show off the inlay. I hope it does the inlay justice and accents a beautiful little rifle I just love it and show it off to my shooting buddies at Angeles Shooting Range here in southern California.

I would like to say,WOW!! What an incredible rifle! I just purchased your lever action 22, and must say I am very impressed. This rifle shoots dead on time after time, and the action? Smooth as glass! The feel of the action continues to amaze me each time I cycle another round. The Henry is also a great looking gun, superb fit and finish, is easy on the eyes, and makes for a very solid feeling and well balanced rifle. I come from a working ranch background and am a metal artist by trade, I appreciate both the working function and high grade craftsmanship the Henry rifle has to offer. Part of my metal art line includes custom western themed rifle racks and these rifles fit these racks for display purposes perfectly.Be assured there will be several more henry rifles in my personal gun case in the near future. As long as Henry rifles are made in America I will continue to buy them, and recommend them to everyone I know. I would request that you tell your craftsmen/artists that they are doing a great job.
I want to thank you for helping make a beautiful fall day even better. I'm heading out ahorseback with one of my favorite .22 Leverguns the Henry Golden Boy .22 LR and favorite horse Dillon to do some small game hunting and plinking. To date the Golden Boy has over 4000 rounds through it without a single failure to feed, fire or extract a loaded or spent round, it shows the reliability of it and I thank you for it. I have to pick up one of the youth model .22 Leverguns for my daughter as she loves shooting and that should be the perfect size for her. All I can say is keep up the good work and keep coming out with more calibers including the .32 mag, .38 .357, .38-40, .44-40 and .45 Colt.
Thanks and Take Care,
In the July issue of Truckers News Magazine, a photo I submitted of my husband, Mark, and our four year old son, Lee, was printed in Rods and Barrels. In addition, we received a Henry Golden Boy. I wanted to say thank you - and let you know how much we have enjoyed it. It is a treasured addition to our gun cabinet - and an heirloom for Lee. He is very proud of his first .22! I wanted to send you a photo of Mark and Lee the day we picked it up from our local firearms dealer, the Swap Shop

Dear Anthony: I received the Big Boy today and it is just beautiful. I can't imagine one being prettier.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you have done for me. I appreciate it more than words can say. Ironically, I received the gun today, my sixty-first birthday. What a joy!
Please convey to your staff and employees that I appreciate the quality of their workmanship and their dedication. And please tell Louis that I appreciate his recommendations and assistance. You are all such great people.
Thank you all very much,

Dear Mr. Imperato: I just wanted to forward along to you a few pictures of J.J. (seven years old) with his pride and joy - no, not the wild boar, but his beautiful Henry Mini-Bolt .22 rifle. We went hunting for the first time last Saturday on the 1600-acre Indian Prairie Ranch (located on the north side of Lake Okeechobee in Glades County, Florida) and harvested two spectacular boar. Your Mini-Bolt .22 was perfect in every way and performed flawlessly. As you can see from the picture, with just one shot, J.J. was able to take down a 100 lb. specimen. He couldn't have been more thrilled. We will continue to tell everyone we meet how wonderful your products are. Thank you for producing the "gold standard" of youth rifles and for being an American company that we can all be proud of. You have earned two customers for life. Wishing you much good fortune in the future, I am Sincerely,

HEY TONY GUN:how are you? well i got my golden boys and the first thing i thought was these are little beauties! Then gave one to my dad and he wanted to powder it's behind and diaper it.he he.I then took mine, with a buddy, to his mountain property,him with a marlin lever,and proceeded to shoot.Now i gotta tell ya,i can''t see without my glasses and i had forgot to grab them before we left.For me to hit cans at apx.35 yards is one thing ,but without my glasses is amazing to say the least,and i haven't shot for a long time,one of the reasons for the purchase.I could lever in any position with no trouble at all. my buddy had to keep his marlin level or it would hang up.He really enjoyed shooting my golden boy. The way it feels,you just level it up let it sit in your hand and hit your target and with the butter smooth lever your not going to use a whole lot of energy shooting for awhile. It feels really nice. I am going to build a nice wooden rifle case just for the golden boy.Thanks for a very enjoyable day of shooting and making a very very nice rifle that was affordable for me and affordable to shoot. There are alot of folks out there that have purchased these rifles and they are saying,marlin? isn't that a fish? winchester? isn't that a spooky "ole"house in california? Dream on guys we know what you will never know,until you own a Henry! Take care Anthony-i'm a happy guy! Rick in Ca.

Dear Mr. Imperato,
Thank you for the nice gun. The gun shoots really well. I'll send a picture of the target I was shooting at so you can see how good I can shoot. I saw a gun just like this one at my Dad's work and I really wanted it. It looked really cool and on my Birthday July 9 I got it.
I started my nine year old daughter out this year on a .22, but after a few hot empty's on her arm from my 10/22 she was losing interest. I thought that maybe if I bought her own lever action she might regain interest. Smart move, Dad! She absolutely LOVES her new Henry .22. We shot up 6 boxes this weekend and she still didn't want to leave. My 10 22 jammed twice on me but her Henry just kept on going, Accurate, safe, reliable, fun to shoot, and economical too. The perfect .22.
Thanks Henry - for helping me share my hobby with my daughter.
This 10 year old sent us this great photo with his Henry Lever Action Rifles!
Dear Henry Arms,
I have just purchased a Henry .22 rifle. I am thirteen years old and this is the first gun that I have bought with my own money. I am extremely pleased with it. I fired 300 rounds out of it and it did not jam once.
It is also very light I walked one mile with it and at the end my arm was not the least tired. The lever has a smooth operation.
One thing I would like to see different is the front sight needs to be orange plastic so that you can see it better. Also, is it safe to dry fire it?

Due to problems with predators, coyotes and wild dogs, we purchased a Henry 22 Repeating Rifle. We found it to be extremely accurate and compact for carrying and shooting off horseback. It has proven to be a wonderful investment in our operation."

I'm Rob Tauer, age 15 from Delano, Minnesota. This photograph is me with my Henry .22 lever action and my horse Comanche.
I purchased my Henry new for $185. which goes with your motto "Made in America and Priced Right." It's the most enjoyable .22 I've ever shot with it's smooth action and high magzine capacity. I've also found it simple and fast to dasassenble and it being made in America is a definit quality I look for in firearms.
I'm very interested in firearms and the history of them and I'm glad to hear Henry will be manufacturing a lever action in a .44 Remington Magnum, which I'll have to buy in a few years.
For some words of wisdom, make sure Henry doesn't become owned by another compnay, avoid the use of plastics unless it's for stocks...don't ever sacrifice quality. Keep them made in America and affordable and you will always have loyal customers who will be proud to own a Henry. I am.

Kevin tells me that he has sold several of your used Henry Rifles, seeing as how his store is a PAWN SHOP also, and gets guns on consignment.
I was a Boy Scout leader back in my earlier life,,, when I was stationed at Fort Rucker, Ala. in the '60's...last century. MAJOR KENNETH J G SULLIVAN,,,So this gun goes to one of my sons, MAJOR, DOCTOR DANIEL BRUCE SULLIVAN, who was in my troop.

Got to fire the first shots on the Henry MIni-Bolt and the H001 last Sunday. I have to re-zero both rifles since the ammo that I used wasn't that accurate. I'll buy target/match ammo and zero the rifles again. Both functioned flawlessly.
My son, wife, and I fired the Mini-Bolt, and it's a fun, little rifle. The smile on my son's face when he fired his first-ever shot is priceless. And his first-ever shot was done on a Henry rifle.

Thank you for the follow-up. Yes I did receive the catalog, as a matter of fact I purchased a Henry model "H001".
When I brought the gun home I was amazed how smooth the action operated. The price and quality can not be matched. The gun is everything I expected and more. The look is absolutely classic. Thank you for keeping the quality so high and the price, well.... amazing.
The looks on my 2 sons faces was amazing. when we started shooting the look became "priceless".
Thank you for keeping the fun in shooting sports! I look foreword to purchasing another Henry in the future.
I added my 3rd Henry rifle, a .22 Octagon barrel H001T to my collection. I have a .17HMR Golden Boy and a .357 Big Boy. I still have other Henry's I want to collect, such as the 30-30 and the .44 caliber. My favorite rifles are Henry's!
