The Long Ranger .223 Rem/5.56 NATO, .243 Win, .308 Win, 6.5 Creedmoor
Bolt Action Performance With The Speed Of A Lever Action
We’ve developed the Henry Long Ranger to stretch the envelope in a design that takes the hunt to the fur in popular calibers at longer distances. The Long Ranger retains traditional lever action operation with an exposed hammer and forged steel lever but updates it with a geared action. A machined and chromed steel bolt with a 6-lug rotary head is driven into a rear extension of the barrel for a strong and consistent lock-up from shot to shot to shot.
With side ejection and a lightweight aerospace alloy receiver, the top is drilled and tapped for scope mounts, and the bottom features a steel-bodied flush-fit detachable magazine (5-round capacity in .223, 4-round in .243,.308, and 6.5 Creedmoor) with a steel floorplate and a blackened steel release button on the right side of the receiver. All behind a 20” (or 22″ for the 6.5 Creedmoor) round and blued free-floated sporter barrel, and supported by a two-piece oil-finished American Walnut stock with precise laser-cut checkering, sling swivel studs, and a solid black rubber recoil pad for both recoil control and non-slip anchoring on the shoulder for the rapid follow-up shots where lever actions excel. Like our other centerfires, the Long Ranger carries on the in-hammer sliding transfer bar as a safety, instead of a manual safety button or slider that can be hard to operate with gloves.
Accurate? You bet. This is the Best-In-Class lever gun that leaves many bolt actions in the dust. If you’ve ever passed up a lever in favor of a bolt because of accuracy doubts, then doubt no longer. We didn’t pick the Long Ranger name out of a hat; if you need a tight-shooter that’ll reach out there, this rifle delivers. From coyote to whitetail to bear, the new Long Ranger is a logical evolution in lever action technology as America’s contribution to classic firearms design, and it has you covered from hardwood forest to sagebrush flat in a trim, quick handling, and dependable 7-pound rifle you’ll be happy to reach for as you head out the door. We’ve upped our hunting ante, time for you to do the same?
Mr. Imperato, I have had my Henry Long Ranger .243 for 3 weeks. Wow! The walnut furniture is absolutely gorgeous. I had planned on putting a scope on it. Now I don’t think so. The sights that came on it are just superb. I will use it as my “under 50 yards” gun. The accuracy is amazing. I am regularly getting 3 and 4 shot groups at 40 to 50 yards that fit into a 50-cent piece. Needless to say the craftsmanship
from Rice Lake is wonderful. Congratulate them for me.
Thank you for manufacturing these magnificant rifles here in the USA.
I just received my Long Ranger after a 3 mounth wait and oh boy was it worth the wait, just one word discribes this rifle: fantastic. Beautifull workmanship, great trigger action, very smooth shooting and really nice wood.
Thanks to everybody at Henry Rifles, and y’all have a great Xmas.
Successful hunt with my Henry Long Ranger.
I want to thank you & Henry. I shot this nice buck first day out.
A couple things.
First, you had a call-in show maybe 6 months ago, and I called in and talked about how I was a new shooter and how much I liked my .357 Big Boy, and then went out and bought a .17 HMR Golden Boy. You asked what I’d get next, and I said I’d probably get a Long Ranger.
Well, that’s what I did. Got a .308 Long Ranger, which as you know is a stout caliber with a fair amount of kick to it. I’d like to congratulate you on the design of that rifle, and in particular the recoil pad. I wasn’t worried about recoil, but shall we say “curious.” It’s a pleasure to shoot that cannon.
Second, I’d like to say that I will get my 4th Henry in a heartbeat: the moment you make a 20ga shotgun that will hold five or so rounds in the tube. I already have a 12ga break-action Winchester 37, and with all due respect to break-actions, I just don’t like the single-shot guns. Not that there’s anything wrong with ’em. Pure personal preference.
Anyway, you guys make fantastic products. I won’t bore you with my evolution from a non-shooting gun control supporter to the opposite, but I’ll say this: Your .357 magnum Big Boy turned from from a new shooter who liked guns into a new shooter who loves guns.
To me, Henry rifles are poetry in motion, and almost mystical. Long may you run. And I sure hope I see a Henry 20ga lever shotgun pretty soon!
We had a great opening weekend of gun season in Indiana and I put a nice 8-pointer on the ground with my Henry .308 rifle.
Every time I get another Henry Rifle, I truly believe that I have now gotten the most beautiful rifle that exists in the world. Then I get another, new Henry Rifle.
I now have the exact rifle that I would choose, if I could only own one rifle. With this, I can hunt, survive, or just have fun. And show off in front of friends.
Normally I have to experiment with different types and loads of ammo to find the one the rifle like best. So far – in my first and only shooting session with this Long Ranger – I have not found a load this rifle does not like. Everything is an inch or less at 100 yards.
Thank you Mr. Imperato, you just keep pushing against the upper limits of perfection!
Good Afternoon, Wanted to send you a picture of my wife, Jacqueline, first buck. 4point at 52 yards. She loves her Long Ranger .308 and we can’t thank you enough for getting her this fine firearm. I tell my friend and co-workers about Henry’s customer service and how the president of the company himself took interest when my FFl and local “gun guy” couldn’t get his hands on one last year. Thank you again and have a blessed year. Sincerely,
Robert Vick Jr
I have had my Henry Big Boy in .357 for 9 months now. I have scoped it and have shot well over 1000 rounds through it and it is the most amazing rifle I own.
I own an AR15 and do not like that anywhere near as much as my Henry.
Thank you for making such a fine American Rifle
I am looking into hopefully purchasing the Long Ranger in 223.
Behind me is a Purple heart from my grandfather from WWI.
I have tried the action on the Henry .22 and 30-30. For an old man used to the hitch in a Model 94 I’m just blown away with the smoothness. I expect nothing less in my Long Ranger.
You’re doing my family name good, Anthony, keep it up.
After mounting scope and shooting around twenty rounds, my three shot group at 100 yards. I am so glad I seen your add on facebook about this rifle started the process of waiting for it to be release. I am really glad to have sent you the e-mail to get thing started. This will be a freezer filling rifle in the hands of me and my kin.
Thank you again Anthony for all you did to make this happen !!!!
I need to start by saying “THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU” !!!!!!
A couple weeks ago I e-mailed you about trying to get a Henry (Lone Ranger) in the 308 cal. I was really impressed by your 30 minute response time back to me. You directed me to have Randy from Globber Sports in Carrollton, Kentucky e-mail you his FFL and you would assist him on getting one for me.
I got the call from him last Wednesday saying it was in. I picked it yesterday and I couldn’t be any happier. The rifle looks GREAT!!!!
There was several other customers in the store that was really impressed with the rifle also.
In close, again, “THANK YOU” for for everything you did to make this happen for me. It’s caring people and businesses like yours that is truly a blessing.
