Dear Mr. Imperato
I just bought my first Henry, 45-70 a few weeks ago, and I must say it has been the best gun I have ever bought. I have been researching the Henry guns for the last couple of years and decided to purchase the Henry 45-70. I just starting hunting a few years ago in PA for Bear. This will be my first time using the 45-70 for the hunt. Some of my friends are somewhat jealous with envy over the 45-70. I have received many compliments about how nice the Henry is. It is a great honor to own something made in American and with such pride. Thank You A Proud Henry Owner
Thank you for helping me with my issue. You have made a young boy very, very happy! The attached pic is of my 6 yr old son, his Henry mini-bolt with scope and his first 5 round group from the standing supported at 50 meters.
The 22 is becoming famous. I ran a good ammo test today from the bench at 25 yards. It will be part of a feature article at Outdoors Unlimited Magazine. 9 different dime sized dots were used, with 5 shot groups recorded. The scope was a Bushnell Banner 3×9 commonly used by many squirrel hunters.
The Bushnell Banner 6×18 has won more World Squirrel Rifle Championships on a CZ-452 than any other. Today using different ammo two Black Death Targets were achieved. I was only using the dots as an aiming point as the rifle was zeroed with Wolf Match Extra and no other sight adjustment was made. The scope was set on 4 power.
The results (without a vice) showed that you can even hit a dime with Federal (junk) ammo the worst group of the day. What is great is bolt action riflemen are challenging the Henry, I like that.
I wasn’t going to do it but I’m going to try to beat my CZ in a head to head accuracy test, even though they are not in the same class…Cowboy against Sporter. There is really nothing left to do, the Henry is perfect…here is the general ammo test.
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.
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!
I cannot begin to completely convey how satisfied I am with my Henry H001T rifle. A few months back I shot my friends Henry lever .22 and I was blown away with the accuracy and how much fun it was to shoot. Even being the base model, I was surprised with the fit and finish, the smoothness of the action and the trigger, and especially the price. I put my Ruger 10/22 up for sale the following week and ordered a Henry H001T as I really loved the look of the octagonal barrel. Luckily a few days later I had it in my hand. One of the best decisions I have ever made. Nothing beats a simple, no frills 22 rifle that gives you the flexibility of short and long rifle, and especially not having to worry with whether the rifle will cycle the ammunition like finicky autoloaders with target ammunition. I have let several kids shoot the rifle and seeing the look on their faces as they work the lever and deliver hit after hit on target is awesome. This may be the most accurate 22 rifle I have ever shot, and I have recommended it to everyone who inquires about it. Thank you and the company for producing a quality product at a great price and standing behind it, I am proud to be a Henry owner. Thank you very much Mr. Imperato!
I am a 55 year old outdoorsman who loves to hunt and fish. I have been deer hunting for 35 years using my Winchester 1300 slug gun, and I have harvest a lot of deer with that gun, but the recoil is getting to be too much. I have dreamed of owning a Henry Big Boy 44 mag for years. Well my dream finally came true this year. Ohio has finally allowed the use of different rifles, so this was my chance. I retired my slug gun, traded a couple of guns and got my Henry Big Boy 44. Our gun season started 11/30/15 and runs through 12/06/15. Monday morning at 7:35am I got a nice buck at 50 yards. This, no lie chocked me up. Tuesday at 8:00am I got a nice sized doe at 7- yards. My dreams have come true harvesting these deer with my Henry Big Boy! Many thanks to you!
Dear sir, I just have to say how pleased I am with my new Henry Steel Carbine with a 16 1/2 inch barrel. It’s light, handy, accurate and has a very smooth action right out of the box. It’s just gorgeous. I have had .357 lever guns that are picky in feeding different OAL cartridges. My new Henry feeds everything I feed it without complaining. No slicking necessary. This rifle is of the best quality I have ever seen in a lever gun. The fit and finish are superb. I’m absolutely thrilled. Your guys and gals have definitely out done themselves with this model.
Thank you for an outstanding value.
Here are the photos of your rifle in the display and The Live Auction Winner of the rifle “Governor Susana Martinez”. Your donation brought $3200 in for the charities and was well received by the guests of the ball. It was a fun and very successful evening because of Americans like you. I thank you for your donation Mr Imperato.
I just bought my FIRST Henry Rifle.
I bought the Big Boy Blue in .44 Remington Magnum.
First, The fit and finish on my rifle was way better than expected. The
checkering is flawless and the stock to steel fit is perfect.
Second, the rifle’s action is smooth as butter and feeds flawlessly.
I started at 25 yards on the site in and was amazed when the second round
was fully centered in the first. I actually thought the second round missed
the target. The third round made the hole a little bigger.
At 50 yards with my 55 year old eyes and the Iron sites I was able to shoot
2″ groups over and over I even had a couple of 3 round groups that were 1″.
At 100 yards I was able to get 3″ to 4″ groups, for a pistol round that is
The thing that amazed me most was no matter the ammo maker the groups stayed
the same and the point of impact was the same at 100 yards as it was at 50
yards without adjusting the sites. This makes it a great rifle for the
purpose I bought it, close range deer hunting.
Thank You for making a FULLY American Made Rifle with the way above par
QUALITY of Mine.
Henry is proof that a company can make high quality products using only
American made parts and assembly.
PLEASE pass my praise on to the people in the shop they are the one’s that
make it happen. This is a DAMN FINE RIFLE made BY US FOR US.
