Henry Customer Letters
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.
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.

Dear Anthony 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 BigBoy 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??

In this competitive market today, it is almost impossible to find a
company that has a product that meets and exceeds customer satisfaction. I am a proud owner of your firearms and would like a current catalog.
My Wife bought a Henry Goldenboy,H004L for me it is truly, a fine rifle smooth an true. I could not be happier Thanks for making such a fine rifle!!
Just wanted to call you and let you know that I am very pleased with your company. I am very happy to see an American company treating cosnumers so well, and I am hapy that your rifles are made in the good old USA.
I have recently purchased one of your H001 Lever Action Rifles for my son ( 12 years old ). I liked it so much, I purchased a Golden Boy for myself. I am very impressed with the smoothness of the action and quality to detail for a gun in sub $ 400 price range. I have also found your customer service to be second to none. Keep up the good work! It`s good to see we still have some American Companies where pride and craftsmanship come first before the all mighty dollar. Again my thanks for a fine gun.
Have had my Golden Boy 17, now for about 3 weeks. It.s the best shooting rifle I,ve ever had. It's dead on at over 200 yards.It's hard to put into words how great this rifle is. I don't think you or anybody else could could make a better one.
Thanks a lot,

I have purchased the Henry Golden Boy and the Henry Big Boy .44. Absolutely love them, two of the sweetest rifles that I have ever owned, Keep up the good work
My Henry is a great gun. I love it and will probably buy more Henry rifles, not only because they are great, but also because they are Made in the USA.
My Golden Boy .22LR is the smoothest operating lever gun that I have ever seen. Shoots great, also
THANK YOU, recieved catalog last week.I bought the varmit express in 12/05.great little rifle,handles flawlessly,no complaints on this great rifle. YOURS TRULY,
I'm retired from the military and I have recently started taking my young nephews out .22 plinking with their rifles. I needed to buy a .22 and I prefer lever action.
For my first rifle purchase out side of the military I knew right from the get go that I wanted a Henry rifle. Historically it was Henry that paved the way for the success of the lever action rifle. I also had faith that Henry Rifles are quality rifles.
As a combat infantry man who has spent a lot of time around firearms I know if a rifle is good or junk. The Henry Lever Action is defiantly a good rifle. I commend your company on producing a rifle that is solidly built and reliable. The smooth uncluttered lines of the rifles shape and the non checkered stocks give it a great traditional look.
Accuracy "right out of the box" is excellent! She hits were I point her! I appreciate the Hooded Front Sight to protect the sight post and the drop in the stock comb from the barrel line makes her a real "natural feeling" rifle to get shouldered and sighted quickly.
The cycling of the lever action assemble is fantastic. I have shot Winchester .22 lever and the Henry rifle is the smoother lever. My nephews love it when I "combat sweep" (engaging targets left to right as fast as I can while maintaining accuracy). That slick lever movement allows me to maintain a sight picture while cycling the next round and thanks to your great quality I have not had a misfire or feed/extraction malfunction. I have shot countless rounds through this rifle and she just keeps on ticking.
As far as cleaning goes I was a bit apprehensive about the small side ejection port which is the only access to the breach, bolt face, and ammunition feed assemble. However, I have found the design of that area has the important surfaces to be cleaned "flat faced" with out a lot of small grooves or edges to hide carbon build up. A child's toothbrush has a small bristle head, and that makes it easy to get in and scrub the needed areas effectively.
I am so impressed by your rifle that I purchased a Mini Bolt .22 for a "extra rifle" in case my nephews ask if they can bring a friend. I really like this little rifle too. I find the stock to be a comfortable fit even for my 6'-3", 210lbs frame. I am going to have as much shooting it as they will!
My next purchase from your company will defiantly be a Big Boy in .44 Magnum. I have a .357 Winchester 94 Trapper that I bought dirt cheap. However I know a genuine Henry "booming" out .44's would retire that Winchester and make me as happy as a kid in a candy shop.
Keep up the great work!

Thanks to your business model of Made in America and Priced Right, I am now the proud owner of sn 291635H (std 22lr lever action).
Thanks to you and your employees there Brooklyn.
I managed to get to the range with the Henry US SUrvival AR-7 last weekend and had a ball. The trigger is (as I mentioned in a previous e-mail) the smoothest of all the guns that I have. I took the gun to the range to check out the sights. I usually have to make some adjustments to them whether it is a handgun or long gun. Out of the box, at 15 yards, the little gun placed 8 out of 8 shots in a nickel sized group. And by the way, the nickel was smack in the center black. At full distance of 25 yards (indoor range) I was able to place all the shots within a 1.5 inch circle, that was beginning to place high on the target. I expected that as it appears that the gun is sighted for 100 yards so will begin to go high at that range.
Love the gun and will look at the rest of the line. I also have some friends I think will be very surprised when I let them shoot this great little gun themselves.
Thanks again for a great product at a great price.
Dear Mr. Imperato
I just received my new Model H001T and wanted to express to you my deep appreciation and admiration for your company and for the unique and unbelievable customer service department that you operate.
It is rare indeed to find a company that is run by a gentleman that handles their own e-mails and is interested enough in their customers to make sure that they have what they want.
The craftsmanship is outstanding on the new gun.
I have told anyone that would listen how amazing it is to find not only a great gun at a fair price, but how interested you are in your customers and their happiness. I will continue to sing your praises as time goes by and I only hope that this results in more business for you and your company.

Thank you so much for your follow-up on the catalog, it was received very quickly. I just recently purchased a Golden Boy 22 lr. I am extremely satisfied with all aspects of this beautiful firearm. My son is nine years old and is thrilled to death with it!!! I know he will always treasure it even after I'm gone and am sure he will pass it on to his children some day.
