Henry Customer Letters
I have three of your rifles. These are without a doubt, the best value in a firearm today! My golden boy rivals the quality of my Browning!
I was just currious if you have any plans in the future of building a double shotgun. I would love to see someone build a quality American made double shotgun that is affordable.
I just had to ask.
Thanks for making a great product!

My dog Astro and I, were wandering on 50 acres of Kentucky farmland, when he caught the smell of a warren of rabbits. Sure enough, his nose down their hole produced about two dozen jack-rabbits that looked meaner than a hornets nest.
First they surrounded us, ears pointed, fangs showing, their rabbit eyes gleaming, and their whiskers snarling...They had us outnumbered a dozen to two, and my dog started looking concerned, as only a Labrador can...
Slowly I reached for my loaded Henry lever action .22 rifle. With the rabbits closing in on us, I did what only a true Kentucky gentleman would do; I started shooting those rabbits. The first one got it between the eyes, the second was running at me, so I got him in the chest. Twelve more rounds of gunfire blasted those crazed bunnies to kingdom come, but still they kept coming!
While I reloaded my Henry rifle, my dog guarded the perimeter, and barked wildly. By the time the second wave of the rabbit assault crashed into our flank, I was ready with the Henry. I downed 4 in short order, and then popped a few that were cresting a hill. The barrel of the Henry was getting warm, but the aim was fantastic! I sent them to their maker while they were darting about, I fired upon them as they went for my dog's throat, and finally I killed the bunny leader, just as he leaped in the air, towards the end of my rifle. He was gone in a flash!
For those of you who may not believe this old timer Kentucky gentleman, let me invite you to walk a certain bloody parcel of farmland in Union Kentucky, where Highway 42 meets Frogtown road. There, on about 50 acres near the Cool Springs, you will find the remains of several dozen bunnies strewn about; for my dog could only eat 2, and my wife would only skin and cook about 8.
Without my trusty Henry, I have no doubt that my dog would be dead, I would be next to him, and my wife and children would be alone in this world. Thank you Henry!

Just a note to tell you how much I like your Henry Golden Boy 22LR. In 64 years I have shot my share of rifles, and none can compare to the smoothness, finish or accuracy. I highly recommend your products to everyone. Since I have your attention, I would like to see you make a 3 inch barrel Volcanic lever action pistol and the Big Boy in a .38 caliber.

Dear Henry Repeating Arms,
thank you for creating a wonderful tool. I just retired from the USMC and bought one of your Golden Boy 22s with the oversized lever. Right from the box, it has been accurate. I really enjoy teaching my kids about firearm safety with it. Thanks again and keep up the good work.
Dear sir; just to let you know that i bought a henry youth model for a 12 year old girl to learn how to shoot and to have fun, but most important i purchased a henry lever action 22 words cannot describe the wood and grain this 22 has its unreal. i am very thrilled to see you market the 22 in the hex barrel. If i had the opportunity to get one with the same wood --------i'd get it in a heart beat--------very pleased in oklahoma.
I now have two Henry rifles, a .22 mag Golden Boy and a .44 mag Big Boy. And I couldnt be happier with any other rifle. They are the perfection of American Craftmanship. These two guns will be passed on through my family. Thank You for making a great rifle.

sir, have a large loop golden boy, what a fun rifle to shoot. smooth and tight. just ordered a large loop carbine. have other .22's, but your's are the best. interested in seeing the new hoo1t frontier. thanks
I would just like to let you know, I bought a Henry .22 Lever Action, and really enjoy the rifle. Very accurate, lightweight and easy to shoot. My wife has never liked shooting but also has really liked shooting it. Just recently I went with some co-workers and several of them commented on the smooth action and good accuracy. Well done!
I bought your varmit express in 12/05, love the weapon have allready killed 7 coyotes with it. keep up the good work.
Dear Sir Anthony Imperato, words can barely express my appreciation to you for your personal response to me. I am touched to be so worthy. Of the many weapons that I own (and share with my family) only the "Henry"is the most desired to wield when we go afield. Horse back or afoot it was mine alone for many a year. I named her "Betsy" in honor of Davy Crockett's true friend, for she surely was mine on many occasions .I gave Betsy away to my most worthy nephew ,because he was so; Just like when my uncle Morgan gave her to me 43 years ago. I know that" Betsy" is in grateful hands:However,...When I so recently had the occasion or,good fortune to receive your advertisement about re introducing the Octagon barrel ,metal strapped lever action, rifle. My new "Betsy"is calling to me ...in .44 Caliber.If I may honor you,Sir Anthony Imperato, your wonderful family and friends ,I wish to do so out of appreciation for your love and dedication to a beloved craft.....And for all the "Cut's" in the Center"!!! I Reckon So!!!
Your Friend ,

Dear Anthony Imperato,
Thank you for the Henry catalog. I just wanted you to know that I bought one of your Henry Golden Boy 22 LR for my son. We have had the time of our lives shooting pop cans and other stationary targets. He just loves his new rifle and it has really opened up a new world for him. Besides being the most beautiful rifle on the market, it has outstanding accuracy! He will treasure it the rest of his life!
PS I purchased the rifle at Academy Sports and Outdoors, Edmond OK
i was forutunate enugh to get drawn for your standard 22 lever action. it is an amazing firearm its accuracy and size are absolutly phonominal. my friend shot it and inorder for me to get it back i litterly had to pry it out of his hands he loved it so much now were able to really bag a number of squriles in a day. thank you for making such a great fire arm.
I previously purchased one of your reapeating rifles and I personally think it is nicer then my marlin 30-30. In my opion you make the best reapeating rifle.

I did receive my catalogue. It is filled with some very fine looking rifles. I bought a Golden Boy in .22 cal. back in 01, I think. The action is way smother than my 9422. I've bagged over 30 groundhogs with it around my house and barn. 17 last year alone. It's a fine piece of craftsmanship, and dead on. Definitely an heirloom!
Thank You. Yes, we received your catalog. I looked it over and went to my local gun dealer and bought my Husband the "Big Boy" in 45 Long colt for his Birthday. What a great gun! He was thrilled and we have thoroughly enjoyed shooting it. We wouldn't hesitate to buy another Henry and have recommended it to our friends.
Dear Mr. Anthony Imperato:
Thank you very much for the attention and time you gave to me. I sent my Henry Golden Boy .22LR to you a couple of weeks ago for repair. The hammer had been broken off during shipping. I sent it on a Monday, and by the next Monday I received a letter confirming you had my rifle, and a brief explanation of what your repair shop found and what they intended to do. I received the rifle one week later and was extremely happy to see it again. It was fully repaired, in pristine condition, and had obviously been handled with great care.
Thank you for such a quick turn around, great customer service, and for making such a high quality firearm. When I wrote to your company, I expected to deal with a customer service representative and to get the usual run around until I finally got to someone who could actually help me. I did not expect to be taken care of by the president of the company. It was a pleasure to deal with a company that cares about its customers and does what it says it will do.
I have three sons who enjoy hunting, and shooting sports. They are amazed by the rifle and just as impressed as I am with the way your company took care of my rifle. Not only have you secured my loyalty as a customer, but you have earned another generation of loyal customers. Thank you.

I would like to thank you good people at Henry Repeating arms for the prompt attention you gave on my rifle. That was a very fast turn around time and somebody even replaced the hood on the front sight. I had lost it hunting squirrels. Forget the lower price I think it is just good if not better than my Browning model 9422 or my Marlin model 39A. (note that I didn't say cheaper price) because there is nothing cheap about the Henry rifle.
You have a customer for life. A Golden Boy and a pump are next on my list.

I own a Henry 22 and I love it. It is very good quality and acurate. It shoots great.
MY name is martin crownover, i am 15 and have just recieved my first gun, a henry leveraction 22. i would like to tell you how well your firearms are made. the beatiful american walnut stock and the nice action on the lever is awesome.
My friend and i decided to get 22s to to shoot at his house out in the country. so we started saving up our cash. after he had $100.00 he decided to get a marlin semiautomatic rifle. its a piece of junk, its mostly plastic and it jams 3 or for times every 50 rounds. i on the otherhand decided to dave up almost twice that and buy my $195.00 henry rifle. he now is jealous and wishes he had saved up more money.
it comes at no suprise that henry has been making quality firearms since the 1800' s keep up the good work and i look forward to buying more of your products.
a very satisfied and happy customer,
