Henry Repeating Arms History
The modern Henry Repeating Arms company began in 1996 when Anthony Imperato secured the trademark to the Henry name. Along with his father, Louis Imperato, they began manufacturing their H001 Classic Lever Action .22 LR and began shipping rifles in 1997. Since their founding, Henry Repeating Arms has focused on building American made firearms known for their quality and affordability.
Following the success of the H001 Classic, Henry began offering .22 LR carbines in a variety of finishes, including brass (the Henry Golden Boy), silver (the Silver Series) and color-case hardened frames. In the late 1990’s, Henry released the U.S. Survival AR-7, an upgraded version of the ArmaLite AR-7 survival rifle designed as a survival rifle for backpackers or aircrew.
In 2001, Henry released the Big Boy carbines. Originally offered with a brass receiver and octagonal barrel, the Big Boy carbines were Herny’s initial entry into the centerfire cartridge market. This was quickly followed with the introduction of rifles chambered in .30-30 and .45-70, along with Big Boy carbines with steel receivers and round barrels.
The Henry X models are the latest offering in the lineup. Featuring threaded barrels and black polymer stocks and forearms (which are equipped with a picatinny rail and m-lock compatible mounting points), the X models aim to bring the venerable lever action into the 21st century.
