I guess you could sum up my story simply; went into the store to buy some ammo and came out with a rifle instead!
Thank you for both producing an excellent rifle and making it here in the United States.
Greetings to All at Henry Repeating Arms,
I know it might seem strange, but with the current political climate I felt compelled to purchase my grandson his first rifle. I am enclosing a picture for your review. I did not want to wait too long to get him set up. In the picture he is 4 days old. Maybe some kind of record. I actual picked it up before he was born, but I didn’t think guns in the hospital was the proper approach.
I promise to write back and send another picture when he is actually trained on firearm handling and shooting.
Again Thanks for your excellent product.
Splitting a card 25 feet with my new Henry Lever
I sent you an e-mail about me (Joe’s Fancy Guns) and that I had seen (Extreme Marksmen) on the History Channel a week or so ago, and it looked like they were using your Henry lever action 22 with the large loop, so I ordered in one from Jerry’s Sport Center my wholesaler that I use a lot, and then we got over a foot of snow on the 28th of January, so soon as I had the lanes opened up I took the little Henry back toward the barn and stuck the little white card in a snowbank and fired off at 25 feet two shots and both hit as you can see from the pictures. Not bad considering I had never fired the gun before. So the little new Henry is really a keeper!!!!
I watched with great interest yesterday as Directv aired the hour-long special on your company. I can’t tell you how proud I am to own a Golden Boy, especially after watching!
The only Christmas gift I really wanted this year was the Henry. I felt like the kid in “A Christmas Story”, dropping hints and trying to lead my wife with her gift ideas. I’m a 46-year old native of Southwestern Virginia, and my dad and I always shared our love for shooting. We lost him eight years ago in January, and I’ve been a gun collector of sorts ever since.
I got my Golden Boy, and couldn’t be happier with it. The quality and beauty are evident right out of the box, and the fact that it’s 100% American is one of the most important reasons I chose the Henry as my gun of choice.
May God continue blessing you and your family, and the Henry Repeating Arms Company! If you’re ever travelling through Virginia, we’re right off Interstate 81, near the Tennessee line. I’d love to show you around our town! Keep up the good work, my friend!
Dear Mr. Imperato, Ever since I was old enough to read I knew about Henry rifles and their role in our civil war. Yes, it was even nice to see them for sale at the local Wal-Mart. Being a blackpowder shooter, however, I never really paid any attention to the modern Henrys. All that changed after we installed our digital t.v. convertor box and I saw your ads on the RTN network. They succeeded in their goal. Yesterday, I purchased a new H001 lever action .22. Of course, it is everything I expected from an American made firearm. The wood to metal fit, the blueing, the machining, and the astonishing stock finish, everything excellent. What sold me, more than all of that, was the passion you showed me for your product in those ads. The faces of the workers looked like people I know. In fact, one of them could of been mine if I was born in Brooklyn instead of Chicago. From those ads I know I can trust you and your workers to not only produce an excellent rifle, but also to stand behind it fully. Thanks again and may I wish you the best of luck and success in the future.
Dear Henry Rifle,
I have just purchased my first Henry Rifle the 17 HMR Wow! this is a really nice gun.
It is just like it stated smooth lever action. It is so fun to shoot that on weekends my family and I go out in our pasture and shoot at targets.
I am planning on purchasing more firearms from Henry. This truly is the best gun I own.
We talked about the 22LR I purchased for my son but I had to share this with you. Please see photo’s attached.
My son wanted a scope on this rifle so I purchased a 3-9×32 scope and immediately attached without shooting. He shot very well with it at the range. Easily dialed it in and he was, as expected, hitting bulls at 75ft no problem. Well you and I talked about swapping out the stocks for a fancy so I took the scope off to prepare for shipping. I decided to take it to the range without the scope just to see what it could do. The pics attached will attest to the out of box quality. I never touched the stock sights before shooting. 9 of the 10 shots are in the 9 and 10 rings at 75ft with a standard NRA 50ft pistol target. Well where did the 10th go you may ask? The second pic shows the last shot as I really could not see how I was doing with the first 9 shots at 75ft. I took a shot at the logo at the far bottom right corner. This was all off hand with my elbow on the bench. You make a fantastic product!!!!!!!!! Thank you!!!!
I bought my first henry rifle the other day and went out and shot it this last weekend. I am 40 years old and have been shooting since I was 6 years old. I love my new henry .17 hmr this is the smoothest action on a rifle I have ever shot ! Anyway I just wanted you and everyone to know I love it ! If you are thinking about buying a .17 hmr get the HENRY , I promise you when you go shoot with your buddies, ALL of them will want to shoot it. Right out of the box it is accurat !
This is bar none the best lever action .22 for the price!
Anthony, I am beyond impressed with the quality and 100% American made parts of the Henry rifle. Shooting is a passion with me and having a rifle of this quality and asethetics makes it that much sweeter. The Henry Big Boy .44 magnum is beyond beautiful and after looking at Marlin and Winchester lever action rifles there is no comparison of smoothness of action and down right shootability. The octagonal barrel makes this rifle look antique but also acts as a bull barrel to help tame the wicked .44 magnums I choose to shoot. I despise a hooded front sight and the open front sight of the Big Boy allows me to see more of the field down range.
Have a safe and happy holiday season. Your company makes my chest swell with pride when I think that Americans can still make the best products in the world.
