From everything I have seen , they make no junk. I am not a fan but style is what I don't care for.

I've never owned one but, have looked at some. I personally don't like the magazine tube loading on centerfire calibers. I know the original Henry 1860 had that but, was changed later on to a loading gate, when Winchester got going good.

Our local Scheels had and 'Original Henry' 44 WCF in the display case and it looked well put together, above average blue and wood finish. I just couldn't get myself to break loose the money for it.

I have a Long Ranger in 223 / 5.56 and a Big Boy Steel in 327 Federal Mag. Both shoot well and have nice wood that is well fitted. The BBS is an absolute hoot with 32 S&W longs. My biggest complaint is they are on the heavy side.

Does anyone actually have the Model 1860? I hate the polished look but wouldn't mind owning one.

The two Henrys I own are great rifles. So far, not a hint of shoddy worksmanship and excellent components.

Around 10 years ago I had the H001 .22LR. I never had any issues with it but cannot really comment on accuracy as I mostly used it with shorts and just used it to plink tin-cans. Fast forward to when the lever 410s came out....my dad had to have one. It had issues at first with extracting fired cartridges, but out of nowhere it just started working and hasn't hiccuped since. No idea.

I sold the 22, still have dads 410......last week my father in law retired and the company gifted him a special edition wildlife something or other long ranger. His shooting days are mostly over and he gave it to my wife and I to put up and or use.....I'm not a fan of flashy or anything engraved but after looking at it for a few days....it's growing on me and it seems nicely done. Action is smooth, trigger isn't horrible for a rifle like this, and it points very well. I may have to use it on a meat doe this year. I doubt I ever scope it or reload for it so its not likely I'll ever know the true accuracy potential of it.


Crappy pics but you get the idea. This one is in 243, and the magazine is a detachable box so being able to use a spitzer type bullet is nice.

I like the look of the Long Ranger rifles, and they appear to be high quality. I would give one a run for sure.

Ky221,
That treatment on the receiver is pretty. I am kind of interested in their long ranger. Probably in 308W. It would be interesting if they offered it in 338 Fed. or 358Win.
I have to say I think the stock has a 'clubby' look to it. I have never handled one.

I have seen and owned a few. They have a reputation for being well built with quality, fit/finish etc.
In these times, with demand so high, etc, they seem to be around the same as everyone else. I had some that were very tight, others that had wood fit like an early remlin. Some with good triggers, others with horribly gritty actions that I was very surprised.

Basically, I wouldn't rate them any lower or higher than anyone else. If you can handle it in person that would be ideal.

H010 and H010CC 45-70s. Both excellent rifles with zero issues.

Deer and Bear killers they are! smile

Bought Winchester and Browning levers the last two purchases...but I'd buy another Henry for sure.

I dont know, do know that guy is my favorite yankee manufacturer, gotta hand it to a guy living in a gun/2nd amendment hating chithole hell shoving it in their faces manufacturing American made weapons, being very visible with commercials and appearances 24/7/365, good luck and keep up the fight Mr. Imperato.

I haven't owned any Henry rifles, but have bought a couple for gifts, have heard no complaints.

Solid rifles. I just don't care for their looks. Just a personal preference

I have a few of the rim fires and enjoy them. I really like the smooth bore “garden gun” and use it around the house more than I thought I would.

I also have the Lone Ranger in 223 and I find it shoots and cycles really well.
I would but the Lone Ranger in 7mm-08 in a heart beat.

A little off topic, but just received this in an email from a friend. This is a direct, copy/paste quote from his email:


here's a quick story for you: a few years ago, Hunter and his boys were at NOLA watching a Ferrari Challenge race....Hunter started talking to a guy in the pits and it turned out to be Anthony Imperato, CEO of Henry Arms....he offered to make the boys single shot .22's with the last 4 digits of their SS#'s as serial numbers...a few weeks later, the free rifles were at the local dealer.


Says something about the man running the company, I think!

I had been wanting a lever for years and began desiring a Henry because I actually like the looks. Finally bought the Big Boy rifle in 44 cal.
20 inch barrel and the large loop lever.
It’s not the side gate, but I love my rifle.
I’ve only shot one deer with it at 100 yards. Drt.
I’d like to buy another with side gate in something other than brass to hunt with.

As for as killing power?
I’ve probably killed 40 deer with a 50 cal muzzleloader using 240gr bullets.
I imagine my Henry 44 is not much different in ballistics and force.

I heard a Henry firearm advertisement on AM 770 radio Seattle this week.

Take a henry apart and see what's inside. I'd be curious what is inside their centerfires.
