Made in America
It means everything Henry has already stated and to me, it means that Henry Repeating Arms has the faith, pride, and confidence in Americans and American materials to produce the best product you can, when you think of the big picture, foresters, miners, truckers, mills, builders, sellers, and all the jobs that support those, Henry Repeating Arms contributes to America in a big way.
Made in America (especially Rice Lake, WI) means my purchase supports the jobs of talented domestic skilled labor. These are good quality, well priced products. These guns are unique to America, given that the lever action was invented here, and primarily used here. It would just seem wrong to buy a Spanish or Japanese lever gun.
As a patriot, I support my country all the ways I can. The best way to do that is buying American made, it supports our countries industry, businesses and the skilled American craftsman. This helps to keep our economy strong and in the end, puts food on the the table of American citizens. After all, I’m “Made in USA”... love my country!!!
My father, a WWII and Korea vet, instilled a "Made in America" mindset in me from an early age. In and of itself, it is not as much of a belief in American quality as it is a belief that American jobs are more important than foreign jobs (keeping our communities alive, keeping our tax base robust through full employment). I drive an American car, I wear American clothes, I eat food grown in America, and I own American-made firearms. In my mind, it's the American thing to do! That being said, quality is key, and companies that produce a high-quality product and that are American based, American sourced, and American staffed, are where our hard-earned dollars should be going. These are the companies that need to be supported to ensure that American products and know-how don't disappear under the weight of foreign knock-offs and questionable manufacturing processes and quality standards. Henry has always symbolized both quality and American ingenuity to me, and I didn't hesitate when it was time to purchase my first lever-action rifle. I bought a Henry. I may have paid more than what some other lever-action rifles cost, but I never once doubted that it was money very well spent. God Bless America, and God Bless Henry Repeating Arms!
Henry rifles are some of the highest quality rifles new manufacture rifles I've ever held. I am an antique rifle collector and the feel that Henry gives to the shooter is true to American manufacturing roots. Personally I would love to see Henry get into the reproduction game. I say this because I would buy a American made Henry over an Uberti or any other repro. I hope you keep up the amazing work.
It's knowing that you have received a quality product built by American workers. They take pride in what they do.
It means Americans are working. From materials to manufacturing. And the quality and pride in craftsmanship shows. Love my lever action 45-70 and look forward to adding more Henry's to my collection.
I’m an American through and through. I was born just after the end of WWII. As I was growing up, I saw the junk coming in from Japan and China. It never lasted long. But then I got a Red Ryder BB gun and it lasted and lasted. Still have it. I learned to shoot with my grandfather’s Winchester single shot 22. That was my life long goal to buy American when possible. I served in Vietnam, as I felt it was my duty to give back to this country for the freedoms she gave me. When I think of Made in America, I think of the fact that millions across the world are doing anything they can to get to America, that they can Make a truly free life for them and their families, that they can Make of themselves anything they want. That there are no boundaries. I still feel that way. I am on the National Selective Service Board. Because I want it to be fair
Everything its the reason I buy Henry!
I find the slogan inspirational for those that need such a thing to rally around, but I would own a Henry if it was made in Namibia. I never picked one up I didn't like, and as an Outdoor Writer I have written volumes praising its performance. That is the plain truth.
As far as the slogan, it is an iconic catch phrase that will endure because it brings out an individual's patriotism that connects perfectly with this All American Rifle Company.
Never the less, the slogan was not instrumental in me
personally owning several Henrys. What is important to me concerning Henry Rifles is the simple fact they are fine rifles that work when others fail, they hit the target when others miss, and they are inspiring when you realize they are a part of American History.
I will continue to rally around Old Glory as a patriot, faithfully supporting the Constitution of the United States which I swore an oath to uphold, and I will enjoy my Henry rifles in hopes that they continue to make them in America because it would be a shame if they were not made at all....Pass it on.
