Henry Customer Letters
Just wanted to let you know, under my Christmas Tree this year was a Fine Henry Golden Boy. The quality, look, and feel of this rifle is totally unsurpassed. Workmanship on this piece is incredible. One can not find a better rifle......at any price. Thank You!
Dear Sirs: This is one beautiful gun. I am well pleased with it, and the workmanship is superb. I'll bet I am the oldest guy that ever bought one of your rifles. I was 90 August 22 2005 and still like to shoot. Yours truly,
Lloyd F Taylor

Hi guys. Well # 7 in the books. I decided to go alone with my 2 Golden Boys I needed a Hoo1. So I traded a used SportsKing 12Ga Pump for a Hoo1. That makes five + the 2 Golden Boys. Am I hooked or what. You bet. In this months American Rifleman they told of the plant in New Haven closing March 31. Model 94 Model 70 Rifles & Model 1300 shotgun will no longer be manufactured. What ashame after 140 years. But the Henry's in my book are a better gun and as you say priced right and the lever action in so much better. As you saw in one of my last emails the target I sent you tells it all. My son-inlaw used one of the Hoo1 I got for them and hit a small branch in front of our back stop the size of a pencel 18yrds cut it right in half. Good shot with a good shooting rifle. I am sure you will have continuing sucess because of you great guns. Don't forget my 24 or 26" Octagon barrel Golden Boy. Tkanks
Enclosed please find my registration for my latest Henry rifle. I am proud to say that this is my third Henry! A few months back I purchase my first Henry, the Acu-Bolt 17HMR. I fell in love with it. A month later I purchased my Golden Boy 22, and again I was amazed with this fine firearm. My sons and I shoot almost every weekend and it has become a fight to see who gets my Henrys. Recently I went into my facorite gun store and there on the rack calling my name was a Big Boy 44 Magnum. Needless to say it is now located in my collection. Now that there are three Henrys in my collection, shooting becomes a day of swapping Henrys bewteen the three of us. My Winchesters sit there lonely. I am a huge fan of single action shooting, and nothing comes close to the smooth action of a Henry, and we can shoot groups with the Acu-Bolt that are just mind blowing! My Winchester 357 was sent back to the factory to repair a broken carrier. Well based on the difference between the quality of the two firearms, my Winchester will be traded in the day you start delivery of your new Big Boy 357 (and I have plans to buy the 45Colt too). Since I already shoot 45 long colts with my single action revolvers, it only makes sense (how's that for an excuse to spend money?). Thank you for making such a "sweet" rifle. No one comes close and the fact that they are made in the good ol USA makes it even better! Thanks again,

i just purchased a 44 mag big boy and it's the smoothest lever action i own!
Dear Henry Rifles, I just bought my son his first lever action rifle and it is a Henry. I bought him a model H001. It is a fine gun and we both enjoy shooting it. I am very pleased with the appearance, quality and shootability. It will be my son's main squirrel rifle and we are looking forward to a great next season. Thanks for making such a fine firearm at such a great price. Sincerely,
I purchased a Henry Golden Boy 22LR last December. I had the stock laser engraved with my name and date and (since I am 79 years old) I am planning to give it to one of my grandsons...What better gift to give a country boy, than the Golden Henry for "plinking" and gopher control? I also have a muzzle loading pistol for yet another of the "Kids" that will also make good "hand-me-downs"..Thanks for the beautiful firearms you manufacture!
Just purchased a Mini Bolt .22 for my 8 year old daughter. It's a real treat to find a quality product that delivers the goods at such a decent price! Thanks!
Thank you Mr. Imperato. Yes I did receive the catalog just today in fact, though a little late as I have already purchased one of your fine rifles. I bought the .22 Golden Boy a couple weeks ago and absolutely love it. For the past several weekends, my son, my father and myself have gone to the lake to fish. On our last outing, I brought the rifle along to shoot at the nearby range. Right out of the box it was accurate to 100 yards, knocking down clay targets with ease. Even my father who is not a gun enthusiast, could not resist shooting Golden Boy! My son liked it as well, though he is still a bit small for it, I'm sure he will inherit it one day. The only problem occured when he (my son) failed to operate the action smoothly enough, causing a round to stick in the chamber a couple of times. The first time was easily remidied but the second time it was stuck for good and despite help from the other guys at the range, I had to bring it home to a local dealer/gunsmith who worked it out for me. I have since taken it out again and shot maybe a couple hundred rounds without any further difficulties. In the meanwhile I am considering the purchase of a .22 single shot bolt action for my son and your Mini Bolt is right up there on the list. Again I just wanted to say thanks for such a fun firearm. They are really good value for the money. Incidentally, when I first took the Golden Boy to the range, I had my Ruger .45 Vaquero in my western tooled holster. The rifle & revolver combo got a lot of remarks for having such a cool western look. Thanks again!
I have wanted a Henry rifle for many years. Well, I finally purchased the H006 Model and I absolutely love it! It is without a doubt the finest rifle that I have. BEAUTIFUL! Thank You.
Just bought a Henry lever .22, and it is a real jewel! It will certainly be passed down to my grandson when the time comes!
Received my hat and shirt for me and gun case for my grandson. He has both 22 and 22 mag Goldenboys. Saving my nickles and dimes for a 17 Goldenboy to go with them. My order was correct and prompt and of the high standards we have become accustomed to from Henry. Keep up the good work and traditions. We love your rifles. Sincerely
Walter Holland and Dusty Shirley

You guys have and continue to make the finest repeating firearms in the world. Thanks
Mr. Imperato, Thanks so very for your help. Frankly, I have wanted a Henry since I was a boy. It will be added to my small collection of other special rifles, shotguns and pistols. All gun manufacturers should have the same understanding of customer service as does the Henry Repeating Arms Co. Best regards,
Leighton A. Wildrick
Thank you, Anthony .. The front sight assembly and the manual arrived yesterday. I am impressed. I have not seen customer service such as you exhibit in decades. It's both unusual and great to see a company center it's economic welfare and growth on product quality and customer satisfaction. My regards and appreciation to you and all the staff at Henry Arms.

Mr. Imperato, I received the Golden Boy Deluxe and it looks great!!!!! The engraving and the wood are both first class. Thanks for helping me complete my Golden Boy & Big Boy collection of Henry rifles!

Dear Anthony, I have received the 2005 catalog and I am a proud owner of a Henry Firearm. I have the Henry Golden Boy .22LR and just love it. I primarily bought it for a plinking gun but I have been carrying it in my scabbard when I go Riding. It's the smoothest action lever I have ever shot. I get several compliments on it every time someone wants to see it. I will probably be adding the Henry Big Boy .45 Colt to my arsenal very soon. If it's anything like the Golden Boy I know I will be very pleased. Keep up the good work. Yours Truly,
I purchased one of these rifles last week, somewhat on a whim, as a toss-in-the-truck (or canoe or kayak) firearm that I plan to use for not much more than plinking. I'm pretty impressed so far! The rifle's a snap to assemble and is more accurate than I expected -- ~1.5" @25 yards. Everyone else who's handled or shot it has been equally impressed by the nifty design, the accuracy and surprising shootability, and the price.
I bought a Henry 22 Lever Action about 3 years ago and have been very satisfied with it, so I don't know why I should be surprised at the performance of the Survival 22 but I was.
Hats off to you for a good product at a great price.
