Well, I’ve been shooting for years, I just purchased a golden boy, I took it out of the box and put 50 rounds through it at 50 yards. I hit the target every time without adjusting the sights. the 5th to the last shot I made I tried to cut the string holding a 4 inch target. I don’t believe it but I cut the string with open sights. great gun. I can’t wait to purchase the new 30/30 with octagon barrel for white tail season.
Keep up the good work
I have just purchased a Henry Big Boy in 45 long colt I thought “Yeah Right” when the dealer told me it was in and it was too beautiful to shoot when I pulled it out of the box I realized he might be correct With all the hype in the shooting horse , cowboy action, and Guns of the Old West magazines I read about all the “Famous ” Italian and other replica gun makers out there I figured why not go to an original company instead of buying a copy I didnt really think this gun was going to be this good looking I knew I wanted Made In USA quality thanks for surpassing everyone I have shown this gun to’s expectations It truely is ALMOST to beautiful to shoot (hey that is what I bought it for)
I just had to send you a quick note to say thank you for the quality .22 rifle that my husband purchased this past December. He has arthritis in his shoulders so the lever action has been a great improvement for him. He is tickled to pieces with his .22. I have never seen him so taken with anything as he is with his new rifle. Sometimes I wonder if he is going to take the .22 to bed instead of me! Rod just loves the shape, the feel, the octagon barrel, the way the rifle handles and the accuracy! He is thrilled with it. The best part is that the rifle is American made. Thank you for the enjoyment that he is having. I told him, “You are 80 years old, if you want it, get it.” I’m glad he did. We live in northern Vermont so we still have several feet of snow on the ground so the target is close to the house so Rod doesn’t have to wade through the snow to get to it. He can’t wait for spring so he can see how well the Henry really fires!
Thanks again for the quality and the enjoyment.
Mr. Imperato, thank so much for the personal e-mail to make sure that I had gotten a catalog. I am quite impressed. I have wanted a Henry rifle since I was a boy. I am now 46 and finally saved enough to go and purchase one. I must say that it is all you folks claim it to be and more. This rifle is of the utmost quality and defiantly heirloom quality. It may take a few more years of saving, but I am going to purchase the display case for it in the future.
I have a friend who never got into the shooting sports and he has a son (15) who is really interested. I have spent many hours with the boy teaching him gun safety and the proper handling of firearms. We started with a Daisy bb gun and would spend weekend afternoons target shooting. I was amazed at his ability and concern for safety. We recently started shooting .22?s for target practice. I wish you could have seen the look on his face when I handed him the new Golden boy to shoot!! Priceless! (I only get to try it out when he is not here!) this rifle has made the effort well worth it. He cleans it after every practice target shoot and I have never seen such a clean and shiny rifle!
Just this weekend I viewed your new infomercial, and I want to thank you for being an honest and caring person!! There are so few of us left. Sad.
Sir, I want to thank you personally for giving the two of us a priceless experience and a perfect rifle to share some awesome and good times together with. I cannot say in words how much this means to us. The local economy is bad with factories shutting down and unemployment at an all time high?we have an out when we go out in my woods and kill some targets! (paper ones that I set up) we are going to get into hunting this fall.
Again, Thank you Mr. Imperato!!
I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU, FIRST FOR USING AMERICAN VENDORS AND BEING AN AMERICAN COMPANY YOURSELF, AND SECOND FOR MAKING THE BEST RIFLE EVER MADE BY ANYBODY ANY WHERE.
Hello Anthony and Louis,
On Thursday, January 22nd, 2009, I picked up my new Big Boy .44 Magnum from Blue Northern Trading in Ayer, MA. Having never fired a Henry rifle before, my son and I grabbed a couple of boxes of ammo and headed for the range. Shooting the Big Boy was one of the greatest pleasures my son and I have had with firearms. The smile on his face when he fired his first round was priceless. Thank you for such a wonderful rifle and thank you for producing them in America. You have two life long fans in me and my son, and we will be purchasing additional rifles from you.
Very truly yours,
To The Entire Henry Production Team,
It took me two months to find my Golden Boy here in the Dallas – Ft. Worth metro, as the demand was simply too high during the holidays. They were hard to find for a while. But, I finally got my Henry Golden Boy last weekend and I just came back from my local range.
After taking my family out for a Valentine’s Day lunch, my boss and I had arranged to meet at our local range this afternoon to christen my new rifle.
We had heard of the legendary smoothness of the original Henry rifles. But, he and I were amazed at the feel, the balance and the precise action of this modern rifle. Our patterns were very tight and consistent at 50 yards. Upon stepping out of the range and into the foyer, a few people stopped me wanting to know what that “beautiful golden rifle” was they had seen us shooting while on the firing line. Of course, I was proud to show them.
I have wanted a real, honest-to-goodness link to our western history all my life, at a price I could afford. Your new rifles continue to build upon his original designs yet remain true to the styling of his western classic. The heritage can still be seen and felt in today’s Henry rifle. My Golden Boy is a delicate balance; a blend of a very unique heritage and the new modern rifle blended into an all new Henry. You are making a wonderful product I am very proud to own.
There is one extra thing included with my Golden Boy that I did not expect…exceptional “value”. You see, my Golden Boy has already delivered on every possible measurement of quality, artistry, and pricing. But, you also threw in a lot of fun along with more than a dash of history at no additional charge!
My next goal…a Henry Big Boy .367 Magnum.
Anthony I want to say thanks for making such a nice gun for my children. Keep up the good work at Henry. I recommend your rifles to all my friends when they ask what is a good 22 rifle for kids. Go Henry!
I just wanted to send you a note of thanks. I just got off the phone with one of your representatives. I had called to request a new front sight for my sons rifle. He had dropped the gun and broken the fiber optic part as well as the part that holds it. When I asked how much the sight assembly was, he said that it would be no charge and would send one right out to me. I was quite surprised. Most companies don’t stand behind their products that well.
My son and I both love the gun. I shoot it almost as much as he does. He has been squirrel hunting with me several times with it and has managed to bag a total of 8 squirrels this hunting season.
I will definitely keep Henry Repeating Arms Company on the top of my list when I buy additional firearms, or when I know of a friend of mine who is looking for a great first rifle for his child. Keep up the good work!!!!
