Henry Produces Its One-Millionth Lever Action .22 rifle
Kevin Felts 12.22.17
Henry rifles are known for a number of things. Their rifles are made in the USA and have a good reputation for quality. Ask just about anyone who shoots 22 rifles, “Which company makes the best-quality 22 rifle on the market?” and chances are Henry will be in the top three.
In case anyone is wondering, here are my top three:
- Ruger 10/22
- Marlin model 60
There is some good news for Henry Repeating Arms and their customers, Henry just produced its one-millionth lever action 22 rifle.
From the Henry web site – One Million and Counting. Thanks to You, We’re Making History.
Henry has manufactured the one-millionth Lever Action .22 rifle- known as the model H001. As with all Henry firearms and any product that bears the Henry name, it is made in America and sold in over 30 countries worldwide.
The first Henry Lever Action .22 rifles started shipping in March of 1997 from their original factory in Brooklyn, New York. The model was introduced with the corporate motto, “Made in America and Priced Right.” The company moved production in September of 2008 to their current 110,000 sq. ft. facility in Bayonne, New Jersey. Over the years, several variations of the H001 were added including a youth model, a carbine with a large loop lever, octagon barreled editions, and additional calibers in .22 Magnum and .17 HMR.
More than 2 million H001 series rifles have sold counting these variations. They are popular among firearms enthusiasts, in particular squirrel and varmint hunters, farmers, rimfire target shooters and “plinkers.” After 2 decades it still remains an exceptional value for consumers.
Henry is an excellent example of what happens when a company produces a quality product and sells that product at an affordable price.
While Henry Arms are known for their .22-caliber rifles, other calibers are also available.
- 30-30 Winchester
- 243 Winchester
- 308 Winchester
- 44 magnum / 44 special
- 357 magnum / 38 special
Whether for plinking or deer hunting, Henry makes something for just about everyone.
Congratulations on the one-millionth lever action rifle, keep up the excellent work.
