Henry Customer Letters
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?

When I arrived in Louisiana, a tropical depression had already set in. I was down there for four days and it poured the whole time I was there. Due to the weather the gators were scarce. We really had to work for the two that I harvested. I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about the performance of this new rifle in such conditions.
This rifle was put through everything imaginable. It was knocked over, constantly exposed to a mixture of salt air and rain and even knocked out of the boat by a thrashing alligator! I have never put any of my firearms through such a test before. I can honestly say that your rifle performed flawlessly! It definitely proved its reliability. The thing that also impressed me, was how you could produce a beautiful rifle at such an affordable price.
Of all the firearms I own, this is by far my favorite! My seven-year-old daughter likes to go plinking with me, but my old 22 cal. is still a little long for her. So without any hesitation I purchased your Henry Mini Bolt. It fits her perfectly and she just loves it!
I just wanted to let you folks know what a fine product you have. I have also attached a picture of me with the ten foot gator that I took, thanks to your rifle."
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.
Thank YOU sir for the quick reply! I would have put on my good pj's if i knew i was getting a reply from the PRESIDENT OF THE COMPANY! Anyhow I have to tell you and this is nothing that you haven't already heard, but I wanted to say that prior to my purchase of your firearm I was walking around our local big box firearms dealer looking for a 22 mag. rifle that I could really sink my teeth into. I found row after row of bolt action, clip fed ect. I also found your 44 and 45 Big Boy series... and there it was the 22 mag. I was absolutely floored with the detail, and what incredible craftsmanship!!! Your team MUST be dedicated in their work; the pride shines as bright as the brass! These rifles truly are beautiful. My uncle also owns one of your timeless 22 mag. golden boys. The last thing I wanted to do was to be a copycat, but you cant mistake the quality... maybe we will just start a golden boy owners club in Chicago. THANK YOU AND THANKS TO YOUR TEAM FOR A WONDERFUL FIREARM!
p.s. if you need a P.R./sales guy in Chicagoland I'm your man!!! I'll work for rifles!!
JUST ARRIVED MY 22.MAG FANTASTIC GUN VERY PLEASED WILL DEFINATELY BUY MORE (IF NOT ALL),
Soon after moving into our new home in a suburban area, I discovered that the varmint population, (i.e. groundhog & possum) were not confined to the rural habitat here in Western Pennsylvania. Since my larger caliber rifles would certainly draw unwanted attention, I decided it was time to add an efficient, dependable .22 to help in my pest control efforts. My search led me to purchase a Henry LR, and my expectations have been far exceeded. Accurate, effective, and very subdued combine to make this rifle the perfect choice for my situation. I look forward to receiving my Henry catalog to preview my next rifle purchase. Thank you in advance for making such a high quality, yet cost effecient product, right here in the U.S.A.
Dear Mr. Imperato
I received the catalog OK. When I E-mailed you I owned Two Henry Rifles. I received the catalog and saw the 100th. anniversary Boy Scout Rifle. I have been a Scout Leader for a long time and naturally fell in love with the Rifle. I have a friend who is a gun dealer and he was able to get this Rifle for me. It is beautiful and everything I expected from Henry. All of my friends who saw it also admired it. I now own Three Henry's. I saw your video interview on the Henry web site and was most impressed with the Henry being all made in America. I love the slogan "Henry's will be made in America or they won't be made at all". Thank you for the great firearms you make. All shooters and collectors should own a Henry Rifle.
I just purchased a 357 magnum with a brass receiver. This is the most impressive gun I have ever owned. It is like looking at a fine piece of art work. I just love to get it out and look at it! You guys should be proud of your work. Thanks!
I just bought one of your Golden Boy rifles in 22lr and it's astounding the accuracy I get from it with open sights. Most rounds hit inside 3/4" at 50 yards! I get roughly the same groups with my dad's rifle, and it is a high end semi automatic from one of those "other" companies topped with a Leupold 3-9x scope! The action of the Golden Boy is also remarkably smooth. I bought this rifle because I needed a good .22 for cheap shooting (my other rifles are .30-06 and .45-70), but the last three times I've made it to the range the Henry is all I took, even though I had 250 rounds of .30-06 reloads still ready to go. Nothing else beats the fun factor or the serious accuracy factor of the Golden Boy. Now all that's left is the tang sight and the brass barrel band, and the barrel band is already on its way! One thing I'd like to see is a case colored reciever cover, just love the look. I'll definately be taking the rifle out squirrel hunting, and with 15 rounds of 22lr in the tube, I can "load on Sunday and shoot all week", and without a pesky protruding magazine getting in the way at that. I thought the days of quality, affordable firearms were over, but Henry Repeating Arms just proved me wrong!
Hi, I just wanted to say that I received my new rifle. When I opened the box I was anxious to try it...so I loaded up and went out. Whether by design or accident, the sights were set perfectly and the action was as smooth as advertised. This is such a nice little rifle with very good quality. I'm really happy with it! Keep up the good work!
I bought one of your Henry mini-bolts for my grandson when he was born. Although it will be well used when he finally gets to shoot it, I'm sure it will still be in excellent functioning condition..... if I decided to give it to him.
Right now it stands in the corner of the door in my shop. Squirrels are a big nuisance on my place in the country, getting into buildings, ravaging the garden, and intentionally aggravating the dogs. After having had enough one day, I grabbed the little rifle and a couple of .22 shorts. I am an average height man but the fit of the little rifle isn't that bad. To my surprise, the first shot out of the rifle dropped the squirrel, since followed by many more. Out of the box it was amazingly accurate. The hi-viz sights allow me to shoot without my glasses and you would be shocked how blind I am in my shooting eye.
Great product. I'm proud its made in America. I hope your business continues well in these rough times.
Dear Sir, I was given the funds to purchase a Henry Golden Boy for christmas this year. It truly was a dream come true. As a little boy playing cowboys and indians, using a stick as a rifle,that stick was always a Henry. My first B B gun was a Henry. All just a little boys dreams. I own a lot of rifles and pistols but now a little boy's dream has come true, thanks to my wife and my wonderful inlaws,I am now the very proud owner of a Henry. Thank you for making such a great yet affordable rifle.
Thank You Sir.

To all at Henry
Hope you had a great Christmas and come through the world financial crisis in 2009.
I recieved your catalogue in record time. It truly is a work of art. I spend hours just looking and wishing.
I own a fantastic model 001T and I love it like a friend.
Being 64 years old, the above comments may sound crazy to some, but that is how I feel.
I am proud to be a member of the worldwide Henry family.
Hope you and your company have a wonderful 2009.
I gave my fantastic brother a Henry Golden Boy for his 60th birthday. In the card I gave him hints as to what I was giving him ie. something we grew up with, Lincoln received one and made in USA. When he opened it he looked like a 12 year old boy receiving his first firearm. What a SMILE. Thank you for being so wonderful.
I recently won a Henry Big Boy .357 Magnum model H006M in a raffle I entered while on vacation in New Hampshire. Let me start by saying after firing about 35 rounds through it after recieving it that it is one the finest rifles I have ever shot. The quality and craftsmanship is second to none. The reason I am writing to you is I am planning on using this rifle for whitetail season in Maine and will have to carry it for long distances. I wanted to be able to use a sling, but did not want to have to drill into anything to install sling mounts. Do you carry and or recommend any type of sling so that I do not have to alter the rifle in anyway. I thank you for time and hope to hear from somebody soon.
I just recently purchase the 30/30 in the round barrel blued model. What style of scope mount will fit the pre-drilled holes.
P.S. This is a great looking rifle and very smooth action. I can't wait to sight it in.
