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.

Thank you.

Warmest regards,

David Tucker McKinney, TX


Dear Mr.Imperato,

This is me shooting my frontier model octagon rifle. I love it. It works really well.

Sincerely yours,

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!!!!

Dear Henry Rifle

I purchased a Henry H001 last week, this is my first lever rifle. What a smooth action and is accurate also.

I would recommend one of these to anyone who is interested in a lever rifle. I have been shooting for almost 40 years and have been shooting NRA high power and CMP Garand and Vintage matches for the last 5 years, so I know a good rifle when I shoot one.

I am very impressed.

Keep up the good work.

Hi Anthony

I’m going to make this short.

I bought a 22 Henry Rifle love it so much I bought the 22 magnum Golden Boy, Then you had to make a 3030 So I ordered that one today.

If I bought the Henry first it would be the only rifles I would own.

It seems we don’t make very many products in the USA anymore,but when we do they are still the best, the action of the lever action is the smoothest I have ever seen.

I currently own the 22 Magnum Lever Action, and absolutely love this gun. It is so much fun to shoot, and is very accurate. I have owned it for over 4 years.  I will own this gun until I die.  It will be handed down through the family then.  I just hope it brings them as much joy as it has me.  I am currently planning on buying the Big Boy 44 Mag. just as soon as I can convince my wife that I need it, and can’t live without it.  You make the greatest lever guns on the market.  Thanks for making such a fine product.

I bought a Henry 22 cal. lever action rifle a couple of years ago and have shot against a browning lever action 22 cal rifle and the henry performed and outshot the browning ten  to one. There was no comparison. Pease keep up the quality and craftsmanship of your guns because they are absolutly the best.

Mr. Imperato,

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!
