Henry Celebrates 25 years

Henry Repeating Arms, which dates to Benjamin Tyler Henry’s famed self-named rifle back in 1860, vanished from the American firearms landscape shortly after Abraham Lincoln saw his last play.

However, the name and the classic lever-action cowboy guns were resurrected by the Imperato family of New Jersey in the 1990s and have never been larger. To celebrate the company’s 25th anniversary, which was actually last year but whatever, Henry is marketing a pair of limited run lever guns dressed in engraving and highly polished hardwood.

The guns include a .22 rimfire H001 with a nickel plated receiver and 24K gold plating (MSRP of $1,130) and an H011 in .44-40 WCF with a 13-round magazine tube, rosewood furniture, and a polished brass engraved receiver.
