Henry Customer Letters
Yesterday I picked up the Henry Golden Boy rifle in the .17 HMR caliber that I had ordered from a local dealer. I took it out of the box at the dealer and had men wanting a closer look. To say I am happy with my purchase is an understatement. This gun is stunning. One of the fellows looking at it said it was "too good looking to shoot". I agree it is a super nice looking rifle. I can't wait to take it to the range.
I own one Henry Golden Boy, .22 Long rifle. By far the best shooting gun out of the box I have ever shot or owned! A pleasure just to hold in your hands, not to mention the history and pride put into it! I plan on purchasing alot more of the Henry products in the future.
I love my Henry. It has the smoothest action I've ever seen, and it has that old west look that I wanted. It's the only rifle I need to take when I want to have some fun target shooting or small game hunting. Thanks for making such a great product.
I just wanted to express how I feel about my new Henry Repeating Rifle. I am a 57 year old Canadian who hasn't owned a rifle since I was a teen. I am recently retired and decided to purchase a Henry Model 001 for some plinking fun. I can't tell how much I enjoy this rifle. I put at least 200 rounds through it the first day I had it and It was dead accurate right out of the box. I also really enjoy the smooth lever action and it's ability to fire short, long and long rifle rounds.. This rifle is extremely reasonably priced and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your product to anyone who is thinking of getting a .22. Congratulations on manufacturing a quality Made in the USA North American product. I wish you and your Company much success.
Dear Mr. Imperato,
I was in the midst of relocating and have since relocated again. Just a salesman trying to make a living. But that hasn't stopped me from buying my 3rd Henry rifle! An H001T. And like my H006M and my H001, the "T" is simply a FABULOUS rifle!
I don't own "a lot" of rifles....11 currently....but just shouldering one of my Henry's never fails to put a big grin on my face! I NEVER go to my club without at least 1 Henry! Usually my Big Boy .357. A man shouldn't be allowed to have as much fun as that gun is.....especially since I put a Marbles tang sight on it!
I don't have any pics of myself with my Henry's, but I have attached a couple of pics from last deer season of my Henry H006M and the 2 deer I took with it. I promise that when deer season reopens I will provide a few pics that include my ugly mug!
I'm going to be buying an H009B 30-30 shortly just because I love your centerfire rifles and it is simply not right to not have a levergun in 30-30. And I have to find a Big Boy .357 for my younger Brother or else he is going to steal mine!
Thank you again for making top quality rifles right here in the USA!
We would like to thank Henry Repeating Arms once again for their support of the Ronald McDonald House Kids & Clays event. Your contribution is greatly appreciated and the firearms that you have donated to our event are absolutely beautiful.
This year, you donated the Golden Boy "Military Service" Tribute Edition rifle. I think this guy is a very memorable tribute to our men of service. We would like to present you with this picture as a token of our appreciation for your generous donation.
Part arrived today and is perfect. I have bragged you up to my Classmates at College and they are asking to see the catalog. My business professor is very impressed with your customer service and has asked to view the catalog too.
God Bless You and thank you
Attached is a target I shot about 2 weeks ago at my outdoor range. It was shot (10 shots) with my Henry 44 Magnum Big Boy at 100 yards at an 8 inch Shoot-N-See. What amazed me was that I made no adjustments to the sights! For an out-of-the-box rifle with open sights from a bench rest, one could not ask for a better performance! Thank you for making such a great lever action rifle.
I went to The Walhalla Gun Shop 06-14-10 and purchased one of the H001Y guns for me and my grandson to have some fun with and teach him some gun safety. This is the first time that he has held a real gun and its a Henry ! Trying to get him to line up the sights and hit a coke can. Thank you.
You can be absolutely certain that the only firearms in my home will have the name 'Henry' stamped on the barrel. I can't say enough good things about Anthony Imperato and Henry Repeating Arms. I don't need to tell you that there are so many businesses out there, once they have your money, you're history...not you folks, and as a result HRA has developed a large following of loyal supporters of which I am proud to consider myself a part of!
Thanks again so much, Anthony. I said it before and I say it again, you are a gem, Sir!
All the very best to you
I am writing to thank you for the amazing job you did in producing the Boy Scouts of America Centennial Edition Henry Golden Boy.
Earlier this year my local Boy Scout Council had two executives who received promotions and were leaving our area. I was on the committee who decided their parting gift from the Executive Board of The South Florida Council, BSA. As you know, 2010 is the 100th Anniversary of The Boy Scouts of America we quickly decided that the best gift we could possibly think of was your BSA Centennial Edition Henry Golden Boy Rifles along with the beautiful Wall Presentation Box. I am attaching pictures of our presentations with Board Member Norman J. Silber presenting the gift to Jeff Hunt and Jeff Berger. (you can see their names on the plaques if you look close)
Both executives were ecstatic when they received their gifts, and as a matter of fact several of our other board members have since purchased the same rifle and other Henry products.
As an avid shooter and hunter I have had the opportunity to shoot several Henry Rifles and I am proud to admit that I have replaced one of my hunting rifles with Henry and am looking forward to replacing a couple more of my lever guns with your great rifles.
Keep up the great work!

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.

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.
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!

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,
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

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.
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!

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.
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!
