Henry Original

The New Original Henry .44-40 WCF, .45 Colt

Invest in an American Legend

Benjamin Tyler HenryIn the late 1850s, metallic cartridges were the coming wave of firearms technology, and besides the difficulties inherent to developing reliable and effective self-contained rounds the new ammunition demanded equally new gun designs capable of taking full advantage of what the quick-loading cartridge offered. Cartridges that revolutionized a field of slow-loading, slow-firing, and slow-reloading powder & ball single-shots freed designers to create a rifle that could keep up, and the very talented Benjamin Tyler Henry quickly stepped to the front in both areas. The result was the legendary repeating rifle that became known as the 1860 Henry, in .44 Henry Rimfire.

A pioneering design in a reliable and practical lever action repeater, and adopted in limited numbers during the Civil War, the Henry was the 16-shot rifle referred to as “the rifle you could load on Sunday and shoot 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.

With great effort, and more than a little pride in a job well done, we’ve brought back the Original Henry Rifle, made entirely on US soil, just as B. T. Henry’s rifles were. Our Henry Original is true to Henry’s 1860 patterns and patents, and virtually identical aside from concessions necessary to adapt to the .44-40 and .45 Colt centerfire rounds that replaced the long-obsolete rimfires. This H011 and H011C use a specially-formulated hardened brass receiver with the same tensile strength as steel and they are fitted with a one-piece 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. Both calibers share a 24.5″ barrel with a 13 round capacity.

Civil War era Henry rifles can sell for up to $250,000 at current auctions; with serials beginning with BTH in his honor, this is your chance to own, shoot, and display one of the most important rifles ever made.

Customer Comments

Having 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.

I 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

Dear Mr. Imperato,

After having recently taken delivery of a Henry Original rifle in .45 Colt I simply had to write to you. The fit, finish and quality of craftsmanship cannot be overstated. The butt stock is easily the most beautifully grained wood I’ve ever seen on any long arm. I finally had the opportunity today to sight in the rifle and as I expected I was not disappointed as the accuracy more than lives up to the Henry reputation. As to why I purchased this particular model I’ll be brief. My stepfather had an original Henry that had been purchased new by his great grandfather I believe in 1862 or 1863 and it had been kept in the family for generations. Unfortunately a few years ago he incurred some medical bills and decided to sell it to a major outdoor retailer. As part of the deal they gave him a HRA reproduction chambered in .44-.40. Although I never had the chance to see the original rifle he did show me his current Henry and I knew then and there I’d own one someday. Although this is my first Henry purchase I assure you it will not be my last!

I would like to personally thank you and every single person at HRA for not only producing an extremely high quality AMERICAN MADE product but also for the wonderful support of the shooting sports and the second amendment . It is my sincere hope that both you and all the employees of HRA continue to be successful for many years to come and I thank you again for producing such a time honored iconic rifle as the Henry Original.

Sincerely Yours,
William Grieme
