Henry Customer Letters
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.
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.

Dear Sir, I have heard about Henry Rifles all my life but never had the notion to own one. I have a new love now. It's a Henry Golden Boy 22 that I just purchased. Out of the box it's the smoothest action, the most accurate, the most handsome gun I own. Now on to a double deluxe in with the loop lever. For Christmas if not sooner. Its great to own something made in America with the history that your company has this gun with all my other will someday go to my daughter and son.
Dear Mr. Anthony Imerato ,
I am so happy with my Henry Golden Boy I wish I had the money to buy one of every model you make.Your gun is well made,a dream to fire and it look great too. Any time I take it to the range everyone who see my golden Boy loves it.
Thank you for making this fine rifle
I recieved your catalog in "record" time. I have been familiar, and a fan of Henry firearms since boyhood. (I'm 45 now) Your place in american history, as well as your current reputation, are "tops"! As a past owner of a Henry "survival rifle", (I currently have two more on order), I can tell you that your quality of workmanship is un-equalled. I have a extreme intrest in checking-out, and most likely owning one of your "BigBoys" in .44 mag., in the very near future. Please keep up the great work and I will continue to extoll your virtues to all my gun buddies!
Sincerely & enthuseasticaly,
People ought just go and see some beautiful American workmanship. They should hold a Henry in their hands!
Dear Mr. Imperato:
One suggestion: on the website and catalog under "Henry History" change the very last sentance from "A contemporary rifle collection isn't complete without one." to "A contemporary rifle collection isn't complete without several."
Henry rifle ownership may be as addictive as cigarette smoking or Jay's Potato Chips- you can't stop with just one!
You keep making them, I'll keep buying them, that's a promise.A heartfelt thanks to you for all you've done and to your employees for the production of superior firearms.

Mr Imperato--Just wanted to let you know that I finaly received the Acu-bolt rifle I've been waiting for,for three+ months now. Picked it up on the 10th of this month--got to take it out to my range today. And my friend let me tell you it was well worth the wait--I first cleaned out the left over dust from the factory test firing-- then ran off a few rounds of different makes & bullet weights--It is not at all finicky--although It seems to favor Winchester 40gr soft hollow points & Remington 33gr.V-max. As I put rounds down range the groups started getting smaller & smaller that finaly seteled in at just under 3/8th in at 25 yds. This little gun is easily capable of one whole groups, even if I am not any more, but we shall see as I shoot it more. I can't thank you & your company enough for building such an accurate little light weight rifle. Between the 22 mag accu-bolt & the 22lr lever gun it was nearly impossible to tell witch shot what group. I make my own targets using 1 in dots on a white background usually 6 bulls to a target. I think I need to use smaller dots. Thumb tacks may work. Again thanks.
Yours in the shooting sports
I hope this is the start of yet another good experience with your company which I believe to be one of the finest if not the best rimfire manufacturer today. Again thank you for your time in this matter.

My son purchused a Henry 22 lever action and gave it to me for a fathers day present, it is one of many guns that I own but it is my favorite, I enjoy shooting it very much and I beleave that I would like to own other Henry's
I saw your ad I think in the Virgina Fish & Game got on the website pulled up a local gun store and the wife and i went there. Ask to see the Big Boy and I said it just like that. He walks over gets it and it was sold the minute it hit my hands. I shot this gun and I can tell ya this is one finly crafted gun thanks
Dear Mr Imperato:
WOW! Talk about customer service... Henry Repeating Arms wins hands down! I was at the Shooter's Shop when Dan spoke to you today. Many, many thanks!
Rest assured, I'll be buying the BB357 when it comes out. If it's not asking too much, would it be possible for me to make the same arrangements on the BB357 and "possibly" a low serial numbered gun? As much as I'd like one of the first 10, I'm sure they're spoken for. Maybe one of the first 100??

With the arrival of your 45 long colt lever action rifle, our SASS clubs has a new and great looking rifle to compete and to show off ! The action of your rifle is fantastic right out of the box. I will also confess that I like to show off my Henry to all of my freinds. That you for making this 45 long colt as part of your collection.
P.S. When you come out with a custom edition engraved with oversized loop lever, I will be first inline to add that to my SASS collection of firearms. Thankyou.

Dear Mr. Imperato
When I was researching the purchase of a lever action .22, I got a copy of your fleyer and read all about your products and saw many letters from satisfied customers. T thought the letters were a little hokey and didnt give them much thought. I decided to make my own comparisons and decide from there. After looking at Winchester, Marlin & Henry, I decided to buy the Henry. This turned out to be a good decision. I picked up the Golden Boy 22LR from my dealer and went right to the range. Upon opening the box, I inspected the rifle and found a flawless fit and finish. My 10 year old son summed it up nicely when he said "Ooh, thats a nice looking gun". I agreed. I was very impressed with the slick action and accuracy. The kids a good shot! Being a manager, it seems you only hear from people when things go wrong. So, I guess you get another hokey letter for your "at-a-boy" collection. You and your employees can be very proud of your product. Keep up the good work.

I would like to tell you how much I enjoy your guns. I recently bought a Henry H001 and I enjoy it greatly. This year I went to the Massachusetts Outdoor Expo and shot several lever actions, but the smoothest and most accuracte was the Henry. I went and got my FID and with my dad purchased one. I will never regret it! Next I am planning on purchasing a Henry Big Boy .44 Magnum.
I just purchased my first Henry (H001). I consider it the pride of my
firearms collection. It is one beautiful rifle! THANKS!

Dear Mr. Imperato
I have to thank you for making the Golden Boy and Big Boy collections, both of which I am collecting. I hope you continue to make these great rifles. There are no words to describe just how extraordinary they are, both as firearms and works of art.

Dear Mr. Imperato:
Thanks for the catalog. I recently visited a shooting range with my wife who loves to shoot .22 rifles. She was a Ruger 10/22 and a Marlin 995 (both semi-automatics). After we were shooting for about an hour I asked her if should would like to shoot my Henry .22 Carbine. She said ok but she really liked her semi-autos. We loaded the Henry and she fired it the rest of the afternoon. Now I plan to purchase a Henry Golden Boy in .22 caliber for her birthday in May. My wife now tells all of our friends that shooting the Henry .22 was the most shooting fun she has had in years. Thanks for building a GREAT American made rifle.

Got a question? Will the .17HM2 round work in my ACU-BOLT chambered in .17 HMR? I must say that my ACU-BOLT is one accurate firearm. I hear that the .17HMR is good out to 200 yards, gonna need a more powerful scope so I can see the target but thats OK. I love this little shooter. Great work again.
