The company headquarters is in Rice Lake, Wisconsin, and the other factories are in Bayonne, New Jersey, and Ladysmith, Wisconsin.

Henry Repeating Arms was started by Louis Imperato and his son Anthony Imperato in Brooklyn, New York, in 1996. The first model produced was the Henry H001 Classic Lever Action .22, and the first shipments were made in March 1997. The original corporate motto was “Made in America and Priced Right.” Henry Repeating Arms takes its name from Benjamin Tyler Henry, the inventor who patented the first repeating rifle in 1860. However, there is no affiliation or lineage to Benjamin Tyler Henry or the New Haven Arms Company, which manufactured the original Henry rifle from 1862 to 1864. Anthony Imperato secured the trademark to the Henry name in 1996.
Henry Repeating Arms manufactures around 200 different models of rifles, shotguns, lever action pistols, and more. The company produces a broad range of lever action rifles in both rimfire and centerfire calibers in a variety of finishes, including alloy, steel, hardened brass, color case hardened, and All-Weather. The company’s flagship model is the Henry Golden Boy, a rimfire lever action whose moniker is “the gun that brings out the West in you.” The company has sold over one million of its model H001 Classic Lever Action .22 rifle, which has become a staple of the firearms industry. The company donated serial number 1,000,000, which was auctioned off and raised over $50,000. The Henry Big Boy is a centerfire lever action ideal for brush hunting, home defense, and cowboy action shooting. The Henry Long Ranger is a centerfire lever action rifle that delivers bolt action distance and precision for big game hunts. The company resurrected the original Henry rifle, and today it is offered in calibers .44-40 and .45 Colt in various finishes. The Henry Lever Action .410 bore is the only lever action shotgun on the market. The Henry US Survival AR-7 is an updated version of the U.S. Air Force AR-7, a take-down .22 ideal for all outdoorspeople. All of the rifle’s components fit into the buttstock. The Henry Mini Bolt is the ideal beginners’ rifle, a stainless steel single shot .22, the official youth rifle of the USA Shooting Team. Henry Repeating Arms is the official firearms licensee of the Boy Scouts of America, and several Henry Boy Scout editions are available. In addition, the company has a line of tribute rifles honoring many deserving constituencies, including those serving in the military, 1st responders, and the American Farmer. The Henry Corporate Editions program allows companies to place their logo on a Henry rifle for employee retirements, dealer rewards, and corporate milestones. The Henry Single Shot Shotgun is available in hardened brass or steel in 12, 20, and 410 gauges.
