Henry Customer Letters
Dear Mr. Imperato, I just wanted to send a quick note to you and your employees. I purchased a Henry Golden Boy quite some time ago, but do to a couple of major back surgeries, I just recently got to shoot it. Although I have always treasured it, and have it hanging on my office wall, there was nothing like shooting it. It is the sweetest lever action I have ever handled and she is an ultimate tack driver. I can't tell you how much my friends and I appreciate you taking the hard road and keeping your business in America and using all American made materials. I think that's what makes me such a proud Henry owner. Someday, when my back can handle one of the Big Boys, it will be added to my collection. You and your company make me proud. Plain and simple!

It took me two years to save but I now have my Henry Big Boy .357 magnum and was anxious to see if the legend held up. Well I took it out last evening and while zeroing the sights at 50 yards found how smooth the action worked and comfortable the gun is, as soon as it looks like zero was found I took the next shot at an old cracked coffee mug and was delighted to see it take a dead center hit and shatter into dust and many tiny pieces, with the same settings I jumped up to 100 yards and quickly found the center of that target. Thanks for making such a fine American gun. I am looking forward to many years of enjoyment with my Henry.
Mr. Imperato:, I just received my second Henry Repeating rifle today, my second purchase in less than 3 weeks. What a thrill to hold this beautiful piece of American workman ship. I have owned well over 100 guns in my 65 years, no other gun can compare to the beauty and skilled craftsman ship of these fine rifles. Please pass on to your workers my thanks for their dedication.
Thank you again for providing gun owners with such high quality firearms, made in America by American workers. Best regards,
Anthony, I got my rifle back this morning. I appreciate the quick turn around. I see they replaced the barrel among other things. My toolmaker curiosity wonders what they found wrong. If you would rather not give me that information I certainly understand. I will probably try it out this afternoon, got honey-does to take care of first. I have never had a problem with a product that was handled as well as your company. Your customer service and your product are un-paralleled. Again, thank you very much for the gun case. Take Care,
It was a pleasure to meet you at the NRA Convention in Pittsburgh. My son loves his Golden Boy and it was a thrill for him to talk to you.
Please keep up the good work.
I have three (3) Henry rifles now and have no intention to stop at three. Your rifles are top quality and should be the example for other American companies to follow, not only in the firearms industry, but in all companies. There are very few products made in the USA that match the quality from other countries, but Henry is definitely the exception. Also your customer service is unsurpassed and is the model for others to follow. Thank you for what you do and please continue to maintain your high product standards and superior customer service.

Dear Mr. Imperato, the Henry Craftsman & the Henry crew;
I just purchased my first (but not the last) Henry Rifle, model: H001T yesterday at the Bass Pro Shop in Foxborough Massachusetts. Right away I could tell how well made this rifle is! It's Rock-solid, has a very smooth action, beautiful woodwork and impressive bluing. This is an amazing product for the money! I'm also thrilled to buy something, of such quality, fully manufactured in the USA.
Thank you for maintaining such high standards with such great American-made craftsmanship. Very,very impressive.
Best Wishes for you future success,
North Grafton, MA
Hi Anthony: Here are pictures of my new Henry Goldenboy Rifle mounted in the Oak Display Frame in our kitchen. I fired the gun for the first time last Friday. WOW, what a beautiful gun, so well balanced and manufactured to perfection. Your people should be proud to produce an American product as fine as this. Please pass along my congratulations to all of them. Proud owner of an American Henry Rifle...............
Mr. Imperato, I just purchased a new Henry H0001 and I felt very compelled to write you a letter of thanks. Not only is this rifle an absolute beauty it's an unsurpassed example of top quality craftsmanship! The fact that it's made in America of 100% American materials is sincerely gratifying! The fit and finish is flawless and sets a very high standard in the arms industry that I've not seen equaled by any other manufacturer. The lever action is like velvet and the accuracy right out of the box is amazing. My Henry shoots such tight groups it makes me look like a competitive shooter (which I'm not)! All this at a price that's very affordable. I'm very proud of my new Henry, and even more proud to know that you and your talented staff of employees and craftsmen are brilliant examples of what "Made in America" genuinely is. You're creating modern day legendary quality rifles that anyone can afford. Please know that while this may be my first Henry it will NOT be my last. The collection has just started for me! Attached please find a photo of my Henry and myself, and my backyard range. The grouping you see on the target was from 50" with only one slight rear site adjustment right after it came out of the box. Please feel free to post it if you wish. Thank you for making such a high quality rifle right here in America! Respectfully,
Brown County, IN
Mr. Imperato, I was in the marker for a .22 rifle for planking and after watching you on the video (RFD-TV) talk about the Henry riles and how the rifles were build, I had to buy one. I must say I was fixed on buying a Henry ONLY after listening to you describe the quality and USA only parts built Rifles. After buying one I was amazed at the quality, beauty and how majestic the rifle is, WOW!! At the gun range I was like a kid in the candy shop grinning ear to ear as I loaded and shot for the first time this (my!!) amazing rifle. What an amazing shooting rifle, it was all I hoped for and more! Thanks for the quality and patriotism!! Regards,
Dear Mr Imperato
Here is that trapping photo I promised Thank you for a great rifle! The students enjoyed it also.

Howdy...Steve Williams here, I had e-mailed you from your site link earlier telling you how pleased that I am with my .22 Mares Leg. I found this e-mail address for you on the Henry Rifle forum at rimfirecentral and thought that I would send you a couple of the pictures that I have of the first 10 shots fired through my Mares Leg. It was rapid fire and I had no idea what kind of group that I was getting until the last shot...I was focused on sight picture and target alignment and speed of action. I was quite pleased...
Thanks again for making such a wonderful gun. My late father and I watched the old Westerns together when I was a boy and Steve McQueen's Mares Leg and Chuck Conner's Winchester were both of our favorite TV cowboy weapons. On a similar note, I believe that I saw on your RFD-TV appearance that you utilize equipment that was used to manufacture the M-1 Carbine? If that's so, my father carried an M-1 carbine during WWII as a Forward Artillery Observer in the US Army...carried it from Normandy (Omaha Beach) through the Battle of the Bulge and clear to the end. Another touch of America...I love my Henry!
Thank you and God bless,
Mr. IMPERATO, I just purchased a GOLDEN BOY 22 MAG. It is the finest rifle i have ever owned. I will be very proud to pass this fine AMERICAN hand crafted rifle to my SON and GRANDSON. keep up the great work.
I finally bought my first Henry rifle today. I picked up a Henry Golden Boy while I was buying a gun at my favorite gunshop, and I was very impressed with the quality and craftsmanship of that little rifle. It is almost a year to the day since I picked up that rifle, and I can finally relax, as I have been near obsession with that darn brass receivered beauty I picked up a year ago! I am a retired law enforcement officer and life long sportsman. I live in a very rural part of Michigan's Upper Penninsula. I shoot competition and with family and friends almost every day, I have some of the finest tactical, competition & hunting arms available. My new favorite rifle is still a little brass clad beauty that was made in New Jersey! Thank you for such a wonderful keepsake and useful firearm. God Bless the .U.S.A. & God bless Henry.
Thank you for the extraordinary effort on your behalf to coordinate the chain of events culminating in an evening this grateful veteran will not soon forget. My family and I were overwhelmed with the reception we received, the comments and presentation of the Henry rifle and mostly with the response from the crowd. As a Vietnam veteran returning to the US in 1969, I was told to change into civilian clothes and I was flown into a small airport stateside to avoid the hostile crowds that were usually present in the larger airports. To have the gratitude and appreciation of so many people in recognition of my service to my country was a very moving experience.
Thank you for making it all happen.

Thank you, we are thrilled that Zanders first gun is a Henry. This is the start of lifetime of hunting and shooting enjoyment. Thanks again and hope to see you again next year at Cheyenne Frontier Days.

Dear Anthony I was very fortunate to have known your father going back 40 + years. He was a wonderful man and a tremendous asset to the firearms industry. I am also the proud of a Henry Big Boy, and as you can see I have put it to good use. Thank you for making an outstanding rifle and congratulations on running a very fine company. Sincerely,
Franklin Square, NY
Being an Irishman clover leafs are important to me. They took on a whole new meaning when I recently purchased for my sons first deer rifle, a Henry .3030 carbine. Out-of-the-box, at 100 yards, the rifle shot three shot group that were touching - near perfect three leaf clover! Subsequent three shot groups shot equal groups. To say I am impressed with your new rifle would be an understatement. Simply put it is an outstanding rifle and one in which I will take pride in teaching my son big game marksmanship.
All the best,
I just wanted to say how proud I am of your company to remain making your product in America. Other companies have sold their souls overseas to save a few bucks on the balance sheet. I purchased your Frontier rifle several months ago and the quality is remarkable. Being a retired policeman, I have handled many weapons in my career, and yours is one of the best on the market. The best part is keeping Americans at work here to make your product line. I commend your efforts and endorse your product to everyone I can. Your a shining example of a true American business that so many other companies need to copy. Thanks again. Sincerely,
