Customer Letters

jim-hillMr. Imperato,

We received the custom Wheeling and Lake Erie rifles that we had you make for us. I have had nothing but positive comments about them. When you add the custom embellishments to the already excellent craftsmanship of a Henry rifle you truly have a fine collector’s piece.

Thank you,

Jim Hill Wheeling & Lake Erie Railway

michael-maysHi Anthony:

I saw the new show on the discovery channel this past Saturday. Very good. I enjoyed it.

I am a member of the Henry Rifle Company which is a group of guys that do Civil War reenacting with Henry Rifles. I have the Henry H011 which I proudly use in the Civil War events. I also use it for target shooting and I find that it is a very accurate rifle.

Enclosed is a good action shot of me in my Civil War uniform with my Henry Rifle. I hope that you like it.

joe-shallcrossMr. Imperato,
I wanted to send you a short message say how impressed I am with Henry rifles and a customer service. Recently, I purchased a mini bolt rifle with the muddy girl stock for my granddaughter. Henry was kind enough to put her name and birthdate on the rifle as the serial number; HOPE122512. When I gave her the mini bolt rifle she was really excited and surprised and said “grandpa, it’s BEE-YOU-TEE-FUL!” Needless to say, you made her day and mine. You can bet that when she grows out of this one I’ll be looking for another Henry rifle for her. Many thanx.
Kind regards,

Joe Shallcross Durham, NC

ted-larrabeeI want to thank you for making such quality products. I recently purchased a Henry steel 30-30 from David’s Gun Room in Norcross, Georgia and cannot express in words how pleased I am. I took it to the range as soon as I completed the purchase and right out of the box it is dead on accurate. This rifle has the ghost ring sites before your upgrade and I really like them. It was was of the reasons I bought this particular 30-30. Love the way it operates and love how easy it is to acquire the target. Also, this particular rifle has an outstanding piece of figured walnut in the forearm stock and pretty nice walnut in the butt stock. Lastly, I am not someone who pays a lot of attention to what others say or express about price and other issues when they are making a decision on a rifle purchase. I make the purchase based on what I want. I value my dollars as much as anyone, but if someone wants quality, then price shouldn’t be a deciding factor. I am more than glad I chose this beautiful lever-action rifle and will cherish it for many years to come. Thank you again for all you do!

mike-elsberryI grew up in Iowa and was able to enjoy responsible firearems ownership and use from an early age, thanks to supportive parents and a midwestern culture which understood the importance of that aspect of our American heritage.  It has been a challenge to raise my son with those same values and opportunities here in California. Fortunately, he has been able to experience the outdoors, including his 12 years in scouting (Order of The Arrow and Eagle Scout) as well as shooting sports, even though shooting opportunities are fewer and more restrictive than I experienced growing up.  As a boy, Tyler began his firearms education (as did I) carrying an unloaded BB Gun on our firearms outings to learn safety and proper firearms etiquett.  His ability and confidence progressed remarkably as he was given more freedom and responsibility, and he now works in gun sales at our local Turner’s Outdoorsman store while attending college.  Tyler’s first rilfe purchase was the Henry AR-7 Survival rifle.  His mother and I gave him his Brass 30-30 Henry for his 18th birthday, and we later presented him the Big Boy 44 Mag Eagle Scout and Order of The Arrow rifles in celebration of his attainment of the Eagle Scout rank.  I first satisfied my “Henry thirst” with the 45-70 steel when it became available and most recently added the Henry Original Iron Frame to our collection.  Regardless of what other weapons we take to the range, our Henrys always receive the most recognition and admiration from rangemasters and fellow shooters.  Both Tyler and I look forward to adding the 1000 Man Shoot rifles to our collection. This will be Tyler’s 21st birthday present, and your assistance in getting consecutive serial numbered rifles would be most appreciated.

Thank you for keeping American tradition, values and craftsmanship alive and well for my son to pass on to future generations!

Adam & Charlotte PendergrassAnthony,

My wife Charlotte and I met you at the 2016 NRA event in Louisville. We showed you a picture of her shooting her Henry big boy in 45 LC. Attached is the picture at our local shooting range in Middletown Ohio. This is at Middletown Sportsmans Club. Your rifles are top notch and I plan on buying more of them.

Terry-Sutton-contentMr Imperato,
Thank you for your prompt reply. That is refreshing to get such a timely response from an executive in our world today.
I mentioned the incredibly wonderful time I had with my oldest grandson, Henry, this weekend. We have 21 acres outside of Temple Texas, family land that I bought from my grandfather and uncle. I am blessed to have 4 sons that also enjoy spending time with my wife and I “in the country.” That said, we had planned to take 5 of my 7 grandkids (ranging in age from 4-9) out in the pasture to shoot 22’s this weekend. They were all excited, and we had a great opportunity to teach them about gun safety, the differences in the weapons and their operation, as well as eye and ear protection being mandatory, etc…Now, every since my first grandson, Henry, was born, I had said I will give him his first Henry rifle. Well, I have had to refine that a bit since my wife reminded me we had 7 grandchildren already with probably more to come, and we cant afford to buy them ALL Henry rifles. I told Henry this one would be his someday. We went through the operation and how to look down the sights, to the final satisfaction of putting a few rounds toward the target. (See attached pictures) I can say, I dont know when the boy has had a broader grin that when he finished shooting the Henry Carbine 22.
Now, for the rest of the story… I guess we had spoken too often in his presence of getting him a Henry rifle someday when he was old enough. The day I bought the rifle, I had to call my son to brag…just a little. He put the speaker phone on and told Henry to “ask grandad what he bought today”… I told him I bought a Henry rifle. His first words were “Is it a golden boy?” I guess he is officially hooked too….
Thanks to you and the staff at Henry rifles for helping our family make memories!
