Classic Lever Action .22 .22 S/L/LR

Made in America and Priced Right

The Henry Lever Action is a classic Western-style lever action rifle, and one of the most popular .22 caliber rifles on the market today. The reason for its popularity is because it shoots great, looks great and is remarkably affordable – about half the price of the competition’s rifles.

The Henry Lever Action rifle features an extremely attractive American walnut stock, the quality of which can only be found on guns three times the price. The action is exceptionally smooth, so smooth many first timers remark that they cannot believe the rifle has any internal parts. You simply have to get one into your own two hands and cycle the action a few times to see for yourself.

The Henry Lever Action also features side ejection, an adjustable rear sight, a hooded front sight and a 3/8″ grooved receiver for mounting a scope. The blued steel barrel is machined with state of the art multiple groove rifling. The result is a highly accurate made in America shooter.

The barrel length is 18 ½”, overall length is 36 ½” and it weighs in at a very comfortable 5¼ pounds. The easy to load tubular magazine can handle 15 rounds of .22 Long Rifle, 17 rounds of .22 Long and as many as 21 rounds of .22 Short, making it a viable alternative to a semi-automatic .22. And, a lot more fun to shoot.

Henry Rifles Customers- Keith StewartFirst I would like to thank you for all the swag that henry has sent for our event June 2. Secondly I would like to tell you about one of our newest customers. Noah is 12 years old and worked the last year mowing lawns, helping around the house and whatever he could do to earn a buck. After saving the year he came to my store to purchase his first 22LR, after looking at all the guns I had available, approx 6, he settled in and chose the Henry 22LR and paid for it himself and went to the range and had a blast shooting. Attached is the picture of Noah and his first purchase. Again thank you for your support and thank you for making a fine american firearm.

Good morning Mr. Imperato.

While waiting/ordering my son Henry William’s custom serialized 22 I came across this beautiful Henry 357 in the below picture and had to purchase it! I thought you would like the picture below of my son Henry William Herrington with on of your 357’s. Henry William is 3 weeks in this picture.

P.S feel free to use the picture on your website or any social media you see fit.

I contacted you a few years ago to express my satisfaction with my Henry 22 rifle, and you sent me a mug, which I use every day!

I was finally able to purchase a 357 big boy carbine rifle, and I absolutely love it. The ability to reliably feed both 357 and 38 special is tough to find with lever action rifles, but your product does so wonderfully. Thank you for producing such a wonderful product!

Next on my list- a pump action 22 magnum!

Happy new years!

Matthew Carlson

Henry Rifles Customers-Matthew WatermanMr. Imperato,

Henry Rifles Customers-James McDonaldHello, Im a locomotive engineer from Canada. I recently bought a new henry 22 carbine. I just can’t get over the quality and smooth action for a fair price for the working man. Its fun to shoot, doesn’t care what type or brand of 22 ammo you put in it. I purchaced it for a handy sized rifle for hunting small game. Now I’m looking at selling my winchester for a henry 30-30 for big game.

Thanks for doing what you do

Henry Rifles Customers-Michael CooperMr. Imperato,
These are the two Henry rifles I am very proud to own! The lever action is the one you helped me with. thank you again! HENRY IS QUALITY! One very proud owner!

Michael Cooper

Henry Rifles Customers-Dennis FarrellI have been a longtime lover of lever action rifles. I have owned Winchester, Remington, and Browning lever actions. My first experience with Henry was ordering a county engraved model for a fund raiser. First, let me say that I am a tool maker who has done gunsmithing. When the Henry arrived and I picked it up, it pointed perfectly and made all other lever actions feel sloppy. The Henry has a precision feel that no other rifles come close to. Since the feel of the first Henry, I have purchased three more. Every one has been a joy to shoot and I just wanted to say thank you.

Thank you for a GREAT rifle,

Dennis Farrell

Henry Rifles Customers-Mike SisleyDear Sir,

First, I appreciate your strong support of our military, veterans, and the Second Amendment.

Secondly, I love your firearms. I initially started with the .22 caliber. It shoots and functions flawlessly. When you came out with the 30-30 steel rifle, I got one and it worked great also. I then got the .44 magnum in sleet. Also a workhorse.

Your firearms are well made, look good, accurate, and reliable. Anyone considering buying a lever gun from overseas needs to seriously consider what they are getting. ALL of my Henry rifles sold for well below your posted MSRP. When I compared a foreign rifle with a Henry in the gun shop side by side, it was an easy decision. The Henry had better metal finishing, a smoother action, better wood furniture, AND that tubular magazine loading feature (which I like but some do not.)

Further, when I bought the .22 rifle the magazine plunger broke and you fixed the rifle for free. Service and a rock solid warranty are also reasons I keep buying Henry rifles.

Thanks so much for caring enough to stand behind your all American parts, American labor, and American values in customer service. Keep up the good work.

Henry Rifles Customers-Janet PlattHi Anthony,

I first had the pleasure of meeting you at last year’s Gun Guru’s filming in Nashville. I ran into you this year in Louisville. You gave me your business card and said to send you an email, because you had a lot of pink stuff. Well, I finally got around to taking a picture with my Henry rifle, Gun Guru and Henry items to send your way.

It was a pleasure meeting you. Thank you for manufacturing such quality firearms. To quote your motto…”Built in America, or not at all.”

Henry Rifles Customers-James-FirimonteMr. Anthony, I would like to compliment you on your fine firearms. I have a classic 22 Lever Action Rifle that I have bought for controlling predators around my property. I have a nice flock of backyard chickens that I raise here in Florida which will always draw a meal for anything especially at night. I like shooting the 22 shorts mainly not to disturb my neighbors at night. I have owned several 22’s and still do, but the Henry is my go to rifle when predators are lurking around the chicken coop. Keep up with this fine tradition of building fine rifles. Even though I own a 45/70 from your competition, My next purchase will be a Henry 45/70!

Paul BakerJust wanted to let you know that I recently bought a Classic Lever Action Rifle to add to my collection. I recently took it to the range and was blown away with it’s accuracy right out of the box! It’s an incredible rifle and will pair nicely with my new Ruger Wrangler for the Cowboy Action Club I’m trying to start at my local range. Thanks again for making such a great product. Btw, my Silver Big Boy 44 mag is working just fine. Thanks for all the hard work on that project. I really appreciate it.
