I purchased the Henry Big Boy .44 cal. a couple years ago.All my hunting buddies really enjoyed shooting the gun[me the most]but told me I needed a scope for hunting. Well I proved them all wrong dropping deer in there tracks at 100 yards with open sights!My next purchase will be a smaller caliber Henry for squirrel hunting.
Last fall I bought a Henry 30-30 round barrel. I was surprised to see the thickness of the barrel. I thought the rifle would be heavier than it was. It is very well balanced.The walnut is top quality.(fit and finish) The two inch group at a hundred yards is much better than anything i have shoot. Considering I have to shoot left handed because of loss of sight in my right eye. I love the rifle – so proud to own a HENRY!
I appreciate all of the literature and catalogs that you have sent. Since then I bought a Henry Big Boy 44 and I absolutely love it. I next plan to buy the 30/30 caliber. Fantastic action and very smooth. I have wanted a Henry for a long time and very glad when I finally got one. I plan on deer hunting with it with the 44 special like our forefathers did. All my friends have shot it and now they want one. Thanks again for such a quality gun.
Two Christmas’s ago my Dad gave my brother Eddie and I each one of your Boy Scout rifles…Dad also got him one too. I wrote you about them…
Then back in March of this year, my Dad gave me and my two brothers each an Eagle Scout Henry Rifle (Dad ordered with serial numbers in a row.)
Thought you’d like to see us with them. They are great!

Dear Henry repeating arms, I experienced your customer service today for the first time and I must say your company is outstanding. I own three Henry rifles and one had a slight trigger problem. I spoke to “Tom” in customer service and he took care of me and I just wanted to say thank you very much! Your company is second to none, please keep up the good work as it is very much appreciated.
One of the best rifles ever built. I am a gunsmith and I clean a lot of them over time but I have never had to work on one. Great quality
Rylee was thrilled to hear you have a poster of his picture in the office. I’m now on a hunt to see about get the photo you sent us made into a poster too.
Thank you for being so kind to our little man. He’s thrilled with his gun and wants to go shoot every weekend with his dad.
In His service,
Eagle scouts Robert Jack Ooton, Joshua Carson Packer, and Kaleb Duane Gregory were presented with a Henry Golden Boy “Eagle Scout” rifle at their Eagle Scout ceremony. All three boys were awed by the beauty of these rifles. As the picture shows, they were thrilled by the thought that they all earned their own. One last note: the ceremony took place at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 6th, 2010. Load on Sunday, Shoot All Week Long!
Dear Mr. Imperato,
I recently bought a Henry lever action and I am very glad that I did. I spent hours and hours researching and settled in on the Henry for a number of reasons:
1. Lever Action Heritage – I love the lever action and it’s historical significance. I choose my firearms based on performance and or historical relevance. The Henry has plenty of both.
2. .22 – cheap to shoot and you really can shoot all week…
3. Materials – all of the web info indicates that the materials are top grade… When I first saw the stock, I was blown away at the quality of the wood… Beautiful doesn’t seem to say enough as it easily rivals (and in some cases exceeds) guns at much higher price ranges
4. Claims of smooth action and accuracy ?now that I have shot it, I can say that your claims aren’t hype. Exceptionally smooth and a very very accurate gun… I was shooting unbelievably tight groups at 75 yards without a scope… (I plugged a quarter at 75 yards with only 3 shots Kentucky windage)
5. price – despite the incredible wood and materials, it is a huge bargain at that price…
6. American made – You Americans know a few things when it comes to good guns… I have a Canadian .22 Bolt Action Savage which I really enjoy as well. Whenever possible, I prefer to select guns made in North America.
I took this gun to the range and couldn’t believe how much fun it is to shoot. The smoothness of the action, accuracy, balance, ergonomics…. I can go on and on.
Mr. Imperato, I truly enjoy my new Henry and am going to keep it and pass it on to my nephew some day and am sure he will do the same. Please keep doing what you are doing and where you are doing it.
You make the finest weapon I have ever put against my shoulder ! And I have shot and owned almost every brand of guns. I will buy one more gun before the Good Lord comes to get me. It will be the Golden Boy Military Service. That thing is absolutely gorgeous. Your 22 are nail drivers. I tell everyone if you need a real rifle, buy a Henry. Mr Anthony I thank you for what you have done to keep your guns made in America, that means more to me than anything else.
