Thanks for the catalog.  I was looking for a 22 to start my grandson out on and I happened to locate a used one in excellent condition at a sports shop in Kalkaska Michigan.  My daughter and her family joined us (my wife and I ) at our cabin in the woods the day after I purchased the Henry 22 lever action rifle with 4 power weaver scope.  After they settled in I asked my grandson if he wanted to do some shooting.  He said sure and we walked out to the pole barn.  On our way out, I asked him if he wanted to shoot with my 22 or his. He said ” grandpa, you know I don’t have a rifle”. I said, “oh yes you do ! ” The cost of the rifle, $250.00,  The look on his face,  priceless!!  I am sure he will have many years of enjoyment with his  new friend, Henry.  As for me,  I still have the 22 my dad bought me many years ago.  I sure do like the looks of that Golden Boy in 44 mag.  I am approaching 69 years old, have two cruiser type motorcycles and am enjoying my second childhood more than my first.

I just picked up my H009 .30-30. Awesome, is the only word that comes to my lips. It is truly a finely crafted rifle. No elaborate gaud, just smooth sleek finely defined lines. The smoothest action ever, it just glides. It is just a beautiful rifle, well tuned right out of the box. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to a well crafted, all American made rifle.

With Sincere Regards,

Dear Mr. Imperato,

I have written to you before, and I do not want to be an email nuisance, but I am so impressed by this rifle and your company, and I grow more impressed as I learn more about your philosophy and business practices, that I simply had to write to you again.  People are quick to let you know if you are doing something wrong, or something they don’t like.  My belief is that it is even more important to let a company know when they have conducted themselves and their business in such a way that it pleases me.  Henry Repeating Arms Company has struck that note with me.

The fact that all of your rifles, and all of the parts of your rifles, are made in the United States, is so important to me.  It seems that today more and more companies are using labor and materials from countries other than the United States.  I don’t think many people realize the implications of this.  It is obvious that you and your company do.  So many businesses are governed by the almighty dollar, and they lose sight of why they have the freedom to be in business in the first place.  I am sure that Henry Repeating Arms Company could save a little money by using foreign labor and/or materials, but you don’t resort to that because you understand the need to utilize American resources.  If other companies followed in your footsteps, we would see the US economy strengthen in a huge way!

I cannot put into words the feeling I get when I hold my Henry Golden Boy 22 LR.  It is a feeling of pride in America, one of freedom, security, and of having done the right thing.  I hold my Henry rifle and I feel a golden glow of goodness and warmth, and it is all because of the traditional “American” philosophy of your company.  I know some people would say this sound “sappy”, and it may to some folks, but I know you understand how I feel.  Your pride in American makes me proud to own a Henry.

Thank you,

David King Pinewood, SC

I ordered one of you catalogs from your website, but I have to confess I couldn’t wait until it arrived.  I went out and bought one of your Lever Frontier .22LR models even before the catalog arrived.  I have to tell you I am not disappointed I did.  Right out of the box I was hitting the bullseye at 25 yards from a rest and off hand!!  It didn’t matter!!! I didn’t do anything to the sights. I am very impressed with your rifle.  Please tell your employees that they make a superior rifle.  I am so proud that its made in the USA.  Thank you for restoring my faith in American products and for protecting the long tradition of quality associated with the Henry rifle. Keep and protect the Henry brand by being ever vigilant in producing the superior product that I now own.

Wish more manufactures would produce in the US.

It is a shame what is happen to the weapon industries.

Almost all are now producing or partially producing their products oversees

I am and always will be a firm supporter of products made in the USA such as Henry Repeating Arms. But sorry to see that it is getting increasingly more difficult to find any USA made products.

Although not on your list of sources to purchase your rifles for this area,, The AMERICAN TRADE AND LOAN CO.INC., sells new and used weapons.  Kevin Story, assisted me in my purchases. Kevin tells me that he has sold several of your used Henry Rifles,  seeing as how his store is a PAWN SHOP also, and gets guns on consignment.

I was a Boy Scout leader back in my earlier life,,, when I was stationed at Fort Rucker, Ala. in the ’60’s…last century. MAJOR KENNETH J G SULLIVAN,,,So this gun goes to one of my sons, MAJOR, DOCTOR DANIEL BRUCE SULLIVAN, who was in my troop.

Thanks for making a fine American Made product ,,,,   ..smooth as silk (SAS)!!
