Henry Customer Letters
I recently purchased my second Henry rifle in less than 12 months. My first was a Big Boy in .357 Magnum last summer, and just the other day I bought a Golden Boy in .22 LR.
I am very impressed with both of these guns! The actions are smooth, they shoot great and they are Beautiful! Yes I paid a little more for the Henry's but they are made here in the United States and are worth every penny! I would recommend a Henry to anyone who wants a fine firearm that they can pass down to their children. I am still looking at your catalog trying to justify yet another one.
Thank You for making such a fine product and for making them here in the U.S.
Dear Henry Rifles,
At 52 I needed a new hobby and took up shooting. I bought one of your Big Boy, 44magnum lever action rifles. No only is this rifle a total rush to shoot, but deadly accurate right out of the box. All my buddies try and out shoot me with their AR's with red dot sights, but the Henry with iron sights alone shows em up every time! At 100 yards I pick off tennis balls of the top of a bottle no problem. The balance of the weapon seems to hold it right on target, and once you line up your target and let that magnum rip, the target vansihes! I then bought one of your .22 caliber survival rifles for nothing more than the "cool factor!" my only problem is...where do I go from here!, The Bog Boy is hard to beat!
One Happy American!
Many thanks to the Imperato family and all the employees of Henry Repeating Arms Company for the great rifles. Consecutive serial numbers helped to make it more of a special event. Our Henry Golden Boys in 17HMR will be with us forever. Attached is a picture of us accepting our rifles at Cabela?s in Dundee, Michigan.

I just had a custom Gun Board made for my Henry Big Boy .45 Colt (put on two (2) single action revolvers to keep it company) and have it displayed over the fireplace. I've attached a photo. Love my Henry!!!!!!
We at Dunlap's would just like to thank you again for going to the extremes to help us make our Henry Coal Miner Tribute event a great success and the biggest day we have had in 29 years of business. Also we would like to thank you and your staff for keeping Henry Repeating Arms rifles made in the USA. Keep up the great work! We sold all 60 Coal Miner Tribute rifles we had in stock, many of which to be treasured family heirlooms and memorials, and even oversold by eight. Thanks again from all of us at Dunlap Guns!
Just wanted to send you note that I picked up my new Goldenboy 22lr today, and I love it ! I already own the Frontier model 22lr. I have owned a lot of 22s over my 49 years, and as far as I am concern you make the BEST.
This is my grandson Dalton & I with his new Henry Golden Boy which I had personalized for him. I presented it to him on my 65th birthday. Dalton said this rifle is awesome.
We want to thank you and your staff for a beautiful rifle.

Last summer I purchased a 22 Lr from you. Model H001T. I shot the rifle 2 times at short indoor ranges and was pleased but was itching so to speak, to stretch its legs.Well Saturday I went to an outdoor range. 50 yards was outstanding and 100 yards put 5 shots in a 4 inch target, 2 rounds 1 inch apart, with iron sights. Wow! Right out of the box. Thank you for building something we all can be proud of.

I purchased a Henry 30-30 cal rifle, and am very pleased with my "made in AMERICA and priced right rifle"!
Thank you very much for being part of an awesome tribute to an 86 year old US Air Force Veteran who received a standing ovation from over 4,500 attendees at halftime of the CBR event. My great grandson Chandler Cash Bownds, CBR Bull Rider, by my side, presented me with your Henry Golden Boy rifle on August 13th 2011. A moment in my life I will never forget.

Mr. Imperato, I just wanted to write and say I just purchased a Lever action 22 and just love it. it shoots fantastic and is very accurate. I have not owned a rifle before so the lever action was my choice. I am extremely greatful for a beautiful work of art you and your folks produce. when I can afford to purchase another rifle I plan on getting a Golden Buy. The stock and the fine finish work on it remind me of fine furniture found in the best shops. I am so glad I bought the Henry over the other brands out there. Once again beautiful pieces of workmanship. Thanks so much.
Before I retired, I frequently lectured on quality. If I were still lecturing today, Henry would be a positive example of quality and value. Please thank your staff for disproving the "popular belief" that America has lost its pride in craftsmanship and commitment to quality. If firearms manufacturers could be included in the competition for the Deming Prize, Henry would be the top contender.
We are a proud family of military veterans, hunters and, firearm collectors. Recently while attending an NRA Banquet our father took note of your Henry Golden Boy. The Golden Boy was one of the firearms to be given away that evening during an auction where ten high bidders would be called to draw a poker chip out of a can. Each chip was numbered and an individual was eliminated as the chip with his number on it was drawn. The contest continued till my father and another gentleman were the last standing. At this point I my brothers Jim and Jason and our family all looked on in complete amazement as we were sure that POP was going to win the Golden Boy. The gentleman in contention with my father for the rifle was asked if he wanted to draw the last chip. He deferred and it was up to "POP" to determine the winner. POP reached into the bucket and pulled his own number. In an instant I could see the disappointment in my brother?s faces and feel my own heart sink. However, POP smiled, congratulated the gent, and returned to our table. My brother Jim later proclaimed "POP really wanted that Golden Boy" and herein the plan was hatched to purchase a Golden Boy and give it to him for his Birthday on March the 3rd. The days passed, a Golden Boy was purchased as well as a birthday cake with a Golden Boy on it. The plan was to unveil the cake as sort of a fun loving jab that he had been so close in the contest and missed out then brings out the Golden Boy we purchased. His birthday came and all went down as planned. POP couldn't have been more excited. Thank You for making such a quality AMERICAN firearm and for the genuine joy we were all able to share on our POP's 71st birthday. The pictures say it all.

I purchased this rifle (44 mag Big Boy). This gun is the most enjoyed rifle of my collection. I have a number of rifles that I load and shoot-the Big Boy is at the top of the list. I can load up or down for plinking or shooting , the recoil is almost nill and the noise compared to my other rifles is much less. I love this gun it's beautiful -groups with 296 3 shots 50 yards a cloverleaf. I installed Skinner sights, your sights shot as good maybe better-I love the Skinners look but your sights were more than ample for accurate shooting with this rifle-you guys make a wonderful gun -ALL AMERICAN THANK-YOU FOR THAT MORE THAN ANYTHING-I am a grateful vet.
I bought my Son a Henry Golden Boy .22 before he was born, a must for any new dad! Happy Birthday Dylan 3-31-11

Hello Mr. Imperato,
I just wanted to say thank you for a great rifle. I bought a new H001 about a month ago through Bass Pro Shop in Manteca CA. I have really enjoyed the rifle. It shoots great and is a lot of fun. I've let several of my friends and family shoot it and they have all been impressed. I appreciate an American built rifle and the quality workmanship of American workers. You and your company have lived up to your promises in my Henry. Thank you
