Henry Customer Letters
I wanted to take a moment and share my experiences regarding the .22 Henry Carbine purchase I made in November 2011... The day I received the rifle I fired 3 groups of three into a bottle cap at 25 yards. I was amazed; I thought... surely this is to good to be true. I waited till the next day (hardly could wait for day break) and produced the same results. After a couple months of getting familiar with this rifle, I adjusted the rear sight. I am know hitting a silver dollar target at 65-70 yards every-time... perfect performance and no issues. I love that the tradition of American made firearms still remain strong and visible as a symbol of our heritage and pride in American quality and craftsmanship. I plan to pass this rifle and future purchases on down to my children... please, please keep these jobs in our great country... this was the main reason I bought from you... MADE IN the USA!!! 5 stars... plus some.
Proud to own a fine weapon that was made right here in America by American ingenuity with American parts and labor. Thank you for the service and I wish you and Henry repeating Arms great success!
You had me at "Made in America or not made at all".

Sir, Words cannot express how proud I am to be counted among the owners of a Henry Rifle. I wouldn't venture to guess how many guns I've owned over more than 50 years of gun ownership, but I can say I have never been more proud to own any firearm than I am of my new Henry Golden Boy .22 Mag. I've lived my life in Colorado and New Mexico where lever action rifles have both a place in history and in every day life. I will carry my Henry rifle knowing the history it represents here in the West, and honored to support a company that truly understands and represents what it means to be Made In America. My Henry stands right next to my made in Texas Nacona boots.
Guy's- photo of a couple of new Life member's trying out their new rifles, very impressed with how accurate the golden boys are right out of the box. Yes those tracks all around us are elk- Dr. Martin was able to harvest his Cow the day before , It was a good week end-
I have been a fan of Henry rifles for some time now, thanks largely to your unmatched customer service. I just wanted to wish you and the entire Henry family a belated Happy New Year, and share a couple of pictures from a hunting trip I was on today. I live in, what is in my opinion, the most beautiful place on earth: Alaska. A friend and I decided to go check on another friend's cabin. (We are all active duty army, and the cabin owner is currently stationed in Korea. I am on transition leave, thus the facial hair.) It was a perfect opportunity to get out the predator call and try our luck with the local predator population. My wife's Henry Golden Boy in .17 HMR was selected for the trip. The first picture is of me and the Golden Boy, and the second contains my friend's cabin, hiding in the brush and the highest point on the North American Continent in the background - Mt. McKinley, or "Denali" as Alaskans call it. I hope you enjoy the pictures, and thank you for an excellent product, and excellent customer service.
Just want you all to know that I am extremely happy with my new Henry 45-70.What a fine shootin gun. I especially like the SN 000013. Now thats a keeper!!! I wish you all a happy and prosperous new year and I am looking forward to my next purchase.

I wanted you to know that I couldn't be more proud of this rifle, its beyond my expectations. This beautiful Golden Boy will most definitely be handed down to my son, 100 % guarantee. I really do appreciate you taking the time to do what you did. Even though I know I pestered you with things most presidents wouldn't have time for. I am really blown away with how good this gun looks , plus its nice to have a story behind the gun, thanks Anthony.
Picked up my Golden Boy at Bass Pro. It is wonderful! Want to thank you for your personal service. Have been bragging how great you guys were. Going to order the scope mount from Henry that goes on the Golden Boy. I am a very proud owner of a Henry Repeating Rifle. Love it. What a beautiful rifle. Something that can be passed down to next generation. Thank you for everything.
I am entirely too young to have a grandchild, and Riley is only one and a half, so he is too young for a rifle. However, timing is everything, and when I heard of the offer you made to have personalized serial numbers, I knew I had to buy him his first rifle.
I ordered a Golden Boy with his initials and birth date for the serial number. I don't know how many years I will wait to present it to him, and it will remain unfired and new in the box until then, which, of course will drive me crazy. My girlfriend said I should have bought another for myself, and I may yet.
I would like to thank you and Bullet Stop Gun Shop for the once in a lifetime opportunity to be the purchaser and gift giver of a family heirloom rifle.
Just purchased a Golden Boy from Cabela's. A thing of beauty. Can't make up my mind if I should shoot it or just admire the worksmanship. Made in America, just a show of what American labor can do it left alone. Keep up the good work.

(our 35 year old son), Mason Ashcraft (Matthew's 10 year old son), and Lori Lynn Ashcraft (Matthew's 8 year old daughter). The kids are our grand children of whom we are very proud and they are excellent shots with their Henry's.
The history on the rifles are:
I purchased the Golden Boy before our grandson was born and promised our son and daughter the first grandson would get the Henry. Matthew and his wife accommodated us soon afterwards with our first grandson, Mason. He got the rifle. It is his pride and joy.
For some time I searched for a rifle for myself with little success until I contacted you and you promptly shipped a Big Boy in .45 Colt for which I am very grateful. Then I got a hankering for a .357/38 which still didn't quench my hunger for more American made rifles from Henry. Later I acquired another Big Boy in .44 magnum and then my wife insisted on her own Henry in .22 caliber.
We are a Henry family and congratulate you on making such a fine firearm. We use ours daily on predators, home protection, and varmints. Very accurate and never fail to function.

To you and your staff, twice I have needed to contact your company about parts or upgrades. Once for each rifle. And both times the phone was answered by polite, knowledgeable folks that took the time to listen to me ramble on and then figure out what I needed. It gets sent to me correctly and timely. This level of service is almost unheard of anymore, and to be honest quite refreshing. Thank you for the excellent service and the great products
This young man's grandfather bought him his first Henry rifle. His name is Michael. He is 14. His grandfather's name is Horst has three Henry rifles himself and is very happy.

With the purchase of two more Henrys I will own nine Henry rifles and I think the safe will be full! Great to know a President who cares about America and Americans.....unlike the one living at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave....who wants to take our guns away from us.
Here is a photo of me i wanted to send to the owner of Henry firearms and to say thanks. Its LOADS of fun to hunt with my Dad and just to plink with the whole family. I told my Dad I wanted a rifle like John Wayne had when I was little (meaning a lever action). he got me a Henry 22.
At a reunion on the family farm in Iowa, Brian Smith teaches his 5 year old son Cory to shoot with the BSA Centennial Edition 22 long rifle. This was Cory's first experience with a firearm and the first time the rifle had been shot.
Just want to say that i love your rifles. Thank you for taking pride in your products and having them made in the good old USA. Your customer service is great and your guns are just as good as any other.
God bless the USA
In 2005, 2006, My Dad, RR Myers NRA Endowment Life Member #000020857557, purchased a Henry Golden Boy, lever action .22 cal rifle #GB052987. His first grandson my nephew Seth 17 has actively shot 22 long distance and BPCR silhouette with him. Dad bought Seth's first rifle a Winchester #67 bolt action, single shot when Seth was just two weeks old! However, that Golden Boy tops Seth "bucket list" of rifles to own !He knows that Grandpa has already willed that rifle to him but it's not his yet!
Accordingly, I decided the first born of each of my two sons should have a Henry Golden Boy 22s. Both boys are enthusiastic hunters and target shooters Zachary, and Justin.
Dad ordered and delivered to me in July two Henry Golden Boys #273785 and #273916. See the enclosed photo of my first grandchild, Layton Dean Anderson, almost six months that day, with his Golden Boy #273785. How proud he looks!!! My younger son and wife have no children yet but the second rifle #273916 is ready for the first baby, boy or girl. Three Henrys, for three first born grandchildren.
For now both Golden Boys are secure in my gun safe, awaiting that first session of gun safety and target shooting. As you can see the Myers grandchildren own firearms and begin shooting at a tender age.
P.S. I might add that we inadvertently started something with that rifle order. The very next week after Dad picked up the Golden Boys, his dealer got five more! Cleaned out the distributor!
A proud grandfather

After see reproductions of the original Henry rifle, I knew I wanted to have one. Last summer, I purchased a Henry in .22 caliber and knew I had to have another one. After receiving a performance award, I purchased the Big Boy in .357/38 Special. Both have the smoothest action I have ever felt on lever-action weapons and will be passed down to my grandchildren.
Thank you for making superior weapons.

Purchased Henry 22 about 2 months ago. Last weekend put a
Simmons 3 by 9 by 32 scope on it. I am amazed at the accuracy. Using cci's subsonics I can consistedly shoot a pecan resting it on a cement block at 30 yds. I have had at least 5 22's in the past 30 years and this is the best yet.
