What's So Special About the Henry?

The History is Facinating!

In 1860, Benjamin Tyler Henry patented The Henry Rifle. The country was embattled in the Civil War and these rifles made it into the hands of the Union soldiers by 1862.

This rapid fire rifle is credited with many battles and helping the Union eventually defeat the Confederate army.

One Confederate officer is credited with the phrase, "It's a rifle that you could load on Sunday and shoot all week long."

Abraham Lincoln Had a Henry

President Lincoln's engraved Henry rifle is a priceless national treasure.

From the website:

"President Lincoln's engraved Henry rifle, serial number 6, is one of the Smithsonian Institution's great treasures. The frame and buttplate are plated in gold; the stock is of lustrous rosewood. The President was intrigued by firearms and was a competent marksman."

I was amazed at the quality of customer service I received from this company. I called for more information and to request permission to use graphics and links. I was given an email address to write and received an immediate personal reply from the president of the company! He even asked if there was any way he could assist with the purchase even though they don't sell directly to the public. I could not ask for more personal assistance than that.

You can read the letters and see photos from customers on the website.

      @sittonbull: Leave it to a veteran like John to know so much about the Henry. Not only the article is educational, but the comments too? - A beautiful rifle!

      Wow Holly... it may take you awhile, but when you do arrive ... it's a grand occasion! With angel blessings and squid likes and beautiful comments! Thank you so much ;)) Had the Henry been adopted by the Union Army sooner, The war of northern aggression would more than likely have ended earlier... New Haven Arms which made the Henry later became Winchester Arms and the Henry evolved into the Winchester 1866... then the 1873 which was the gun that won the west. I have a Winchester 94/.30-30 which is a beautiful gun. Enjoyed the lens and great to interface once again. All the Best J

      I've had a Henry for almost 5 years, and it's a great rifle! I strongly recommend this gun to anyone who likes to hunt, or even target shoot.

      What an interesting rifle and history. I enjoyed learning about this legendary gun and can see why your father would want one. They are impressive and the model he is getting is especially beautiful. I'm sure your dad will treasure this gift.

      @julieannbrady: So, reflecting on Henry! I think he was not that good of a shot, so he knew he'd better repeat himself! You think?

      Nope, never owned such a rifle or for that matter, any type of gun although to be perfectly honest, my mother is encouraging me every time we see each other to get me a gun! Either a gun or I'll have to put my bodyguard on retainer.

      My husband collects guns, too. As far as I know, he does not have a Henry Repeater. I will go ask him. Wait, maybe I won't; the question might inspire him to go open his gun safe and play for a few hours. He has too many "honeydos" to play.
