Shoulder the new Henry Repeating Arms Original Henry Rifle and step back in time: to an era when men stood bravely for what they believed … headed out in search of the next great frontier … lived off the land … and embodied the true American spirit.
Benjamin Tyler Henry

Benjamin Tyler Henry – Inventor

Getting your hands on a Civil War era Henry rifle will set you back up to $250,000 if you can find one at auction. Getting your hands on the ultra-rare iron-framed Henry? Almost impossible no matter cost. The iron-framed 1860 Henry rifle was manufactured in less than 400 units, and our Iron Framed Original (actually steel-framed) makes it possible to acquire your own example of this short-lived piece of history.

A pioneering design in a reliable and practical lever action repeater, and adopted in limited numbers by Northern forces during the Civil War, the Henry was the 16-shot rifle enviously (and angrily) referred to by Southern soldiers as “That damned Yankee rifle that loads on Sunday and shoots all week long!”

In the days when the average soldier was expected to be able to fire up to three rounds per minute through his muzzle-loading Springfield rifle, a small unit armed with Henry rifles could provide the firepower of an entire company. That ground-breaking lever action rifle design was the foundation for a uniquely American class of long guns that’s still with us today, over 155 years later.

Fancy American Walnut Buttstock with Hardened Crescent Buttplate

Building off of the desirability of our first brass-framed Original Henry Rifle, we’ve reincarnated those rare iron-framed rifles, made entirely on US soil, just as B. T. Henry’s rifles were. Our Iron-Framed Henry Original is true to Henry’s 1860 patterns and patents, and virtually identical aside from concessions necessary to adapt to the .44-40 centerfire rounds that replaced the long-obsolete rimfires. The H011IF uses a thoroughly modern steel receiver with a striking color case hardened finish and a matching period correct crescent buttplate. These are fitted with a one-piece blued steel octagonal barrel and magazine, fancy grade American Walnut stocks, a classic folding ladder rear sight and blade front, traditional half-cock safety hammer notch, and no modernized manual safeties. The barrel is a full 24.5 inches with a 13 round capacity.

Classic Folding Ladder Rear Sight

This is your chance to own, shoot, and display one of the most important rifles ever made in its rarest form.

Larry Nelson-originalI just purchased a new Original Henry. It is amazing the most beautiful rifle i’ve ever seen. I have the Big Boy in 45 cal. and I bought my son a Golden Boy in 22 mag. We love our rifles. But this 44-40 is unbelievable Thank you so much for you, your company and your commitment to the quality you don’t see to much anymore. If every company was as committed as yours, America would be great again.

GOD BLESS

Hi
I wanted to buy the “Original Henry 44-40 Rifle.” Could not find one in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I did find one online and purchased it. And picked it up from my FFL dealer yesterday.

This is the first rifle, made by your company, that I have purchased. I was pleasantly surprised by the very high quality of the rifle. The bluing of the steel parts is spectacular. The wood used for the stock is equally spectacular. It’s a beautiful piece of walnut with gorgeous figuring. The quality of the machine work is nothing short of superior.
In other words this firearm is second to none. I am 61 years old and this firearm is the finest I have ever owned Thank for producing such a fine product here in the US.

Steve BloomHaving just received my Original Henry Rifle several weeks ago I wanted to forward a comment on the incredible fit, finish and operation of the firearm. I’ve already had it out to the range & the accuracy is as impressive at its craftsmanship. As someone who owns and fires actual period rifles from a Remington Rolling Block to Marlin 1881’s, Winchester ’73 & ’76’s and even a Whitney-Kennedy 44/40 rifle I consider this Henry as much a historic heirloom as the older firearms. Thank you.
