Customer Letters

My oldest son just received a .22 cal Henry Lever Action Rifle for Christmas from his grandfather.  Having grown up with a Ruger 10/22 all my life, I was surprised at the weight and balance of the Henry Lever Action.  My father-in-law stated that he had a Henry .22 Magnum Rifle and wanted to get one for his grandson.  We spent the last few days shooting, and I just wanted to say that this little gun has the smoothest action of any rifle I have ever shot.  We tore through about 300 rounds over the past couple of days and the Henry kept coming back for more.  And I get to teach my son the responsibility of cleaning the gun after each use (with a Hoppe’s 9 Kit).  I am interested at looking at the other calibers and hope to make a purchase on a new Henry Rifle this coming 2009 year.

Take care,

JeffJust wanted to send you note that I picked up my new Goldenboy 22lr today, and I love it ! I already own the Frontier model 22lr. I have owned a lot of 22s over my 49 years, and as far as I am concern you make the BEST.




We at Dunlap’s would just like to thank you again for going to the extremes to help us make our Henry Coal Miner Tribute event a great success and the biggest day we have had in 29 years of business. Also we would like to thank you and your staff for keeping Henry Repeating Arms rifles made in the USA. Keep up the great work! We sold all 60 Coal Miner Tribute rifles we had in stock, many of which to be treasured family heirlooms and memorials, and even oversold by eight. Thanks again from all of us at Dunlap Guns!

I just had a custom Gun Board made for my Henry Big Boy .45 Colt (put on two (2) single action revolvers to keep it company) and have it displayed over the fireplace. I’ve attached a photo. Love my Henry!!!!!!

Ron-CummingsDear Henry Rifles,

At 52 I needed a new hobby and took up shooting. I bought one of your Big Boy, 44magnum lever action rifles. No only is this rifle a total rush to shoot, but deadly accurate right out of the box. All my buddies try and out shoot me with their AR’s with red dot sights, but the Henry with iron sights alone shows em up every time! At 100 yards I pick off tennis balls of the top of a bottle no problem. The balance of the weapon seems to hold it right on target, and once you line up your target and let that magnum rip, the target vansihes! I then bought one of your .22 caliber survival rifles for nothing more than the “cool factor!” my only problem is…where do I go from here!, The Bog Boy is hard to beat!

One Happy American!

Mr. Imperato

I recently purchased my second Henry rifle in less than 12 months. My first was a Big Boy in .357 Magnum last summer, and just the other day I bought a Golden Boy in .22 LR.
I am very impressed with both of these guns! The actions are smooth, they shoot great and they are Beautiful! Yes I paid a little more for the Henry’s but they are made here in the United States and are worth every penny! I would recommend a Henry to anyone who wants a fine firearm that they can pass down to their children. I am still looking at your catalog trying to justify yet another one.

Thank You for making such a fine product and for making them here in the U.S.

Todd-TraceyPlease find enclosed photos of my grandson Todd with his Henry Mares Leg 45C. He took it to the quarry to shoot. Wow! What fun ! He said it was the best gift he had ever received. I have one more grandson to go get a Henry for. He will be old enough next February. Its been great fun and exciting purchasing Henrys for my family ! Made in America or Not Made At All is what sold me.

Just want to let you know how much my 13 year son and I love our lever action 22 rifle. Our friends with other 22’s are jealous and wish they had bought one instead. My brother just bought a Ruger, but after shooting mine he’ll probably be your next customer. My friend also had a Ruger 22 and after shooting the Henry he put his away and wouldn’t shoot it any more. Thanks for making such a beautiful and excellent rifle for my son and I to enjoy together,
