Anthony - Thought i would send you some pictures of my Henry rifles. MY collection is complete,having every caliber you offer. Thanks again for your help
Thanks so much for your personal help. Thank you again for you help
When contemplating a .22 rifle, I provided you with several questioning emails about your lever action frontier model. Needless to say, after my purchase, I have been impressed time and time again at the range (and impressing others into also purchasing).. Your rifle, as you state in your ads, has an incredibly smooth action, is accurate, and is, truly, a joy to shoot! My personal thanks to you, and all of your employees, for manufacturing a wonderful, American-made product.
Like stagecoaches, swinging saloon doors and Pony Express riders, there are many innovations of the Old West that have long faded from use and live on only in Western movies and history books.
But there are still a few frontier staples that were so effective and ahead of their time that they remain in use today. Take, for instance, the intimidating octagonal barrels commonly found on the repeating rifles of that period. These heavy-duty workhorses sported added mass and extra weight to aid in heat absorption, making them the forerunners to the bull barrels used on modern target and varmint rifles.
So as a tip of our Stetson in honor of this timeless barrel style, we replaced the standard round barrel normally used on our world-famous .22 LR and .22 Magnum rifles with a classic 20" octagonal model, like those favored by the cowpunchers, lawmen, homesteaders and outlaws who blazed the trail westward across America. We rounded out this traditional look with an easy-to-adjust Marbles semi-buckhorn rear sight with a diamond insert and a highly visible brass beaded front sight seated in standard 3/8" dovetail slots. A metal barrel band secures both the barrel and the high-capacity tubular magazine to the highgrade American walnut stock.
If you prefer a more modern look, the receiver is grooved so you can top off any rifle in this line with your choice of scopes. Both the stock and forearm are crafted of the same richly grained hand-finished American walnut typically found on rifles costing up to three times as much.
I had recently been looking for a .22 rifle to replace my old one but I wanted a more traditional style rifle than I've had in the past. I looked at bolt action rifles and semi auto rifles but I could not find one that spoke to me. Then, as luck would have it, a Henry Repeating Arms catalog came in the mail. While flipping through the catalog, I came across the lever action Frontier model .22 and I knew I had found the rifle I 'd been looking for. I had never owned a lever action rifle before and I was concerned whether I would like the action, but I decided to give it a try (childhood thoughts of the old west helped a bit). I ordered the Henry Frontier Model .22 rifle from Mid-State Gun Co. in Coventry, RI. When it arrived and I saw it for the first time, I knew I made the right decision. I was attracted to the rifle because of its octagon barrel, handsome walnut stock and its old west style. The rifle looked better than I could imagine and I was amazed at how smooth the action functioned. I could not wait to get it to the range and put some rounds through it. Range day came and it performed flawlessly!
I am so impressed with my Henry lever action that I just went back to the gun store and ordered a Henry Big Boy in .45 colt. Thank you for making a superb, all American rifle at an affordable price. Benjamin Tyler Henry would be proud!
