Made In America And Priced Right. Henry Repeating Arms takes its name from Benjamin Tyler Henry, the man who patented history's first repeating rifle in 1860. In honor of this iconic inventor, the modern day firearms manufacturer resurrected the Henry name in 1996 and currently produces their rifles in two different plants -- one located in Bayonne, New Jersey and the other in Rice Lake, Wisconsin.

Today, Henry ranks as the number five leading long-gun producer in the United States, quite an impressive accomplishment considering the company doesn't even produce shotguns, bolt action hunting guns or tactical firearms, but rather specializes in nostalgic lever and pump action rifles.

Inspired by the original Henry rifle, the Golden Boy series is a Western style lever action .22 rimfire capable of rapid, accurate shooting. Any fan of John Wayne will immediately recognize the profile and styling of this gun. The rifle has a nice heft and solid feel to it, enough that it will never be mistaken for a toy. Owing to its huge popularity is the fact that the Henry is entirely made in the U.S.A.

There is a lot to be said for a
lever action .22. While still a high capacity repeater, the necessity to operate a lever before firing each round is enough to slow young shooters down and force them to concentrate on proper shooting skills. It is also much safer than a semi- automatic, which can easily get away from a beginner.

Another advantage is the Henry Golden Boy .22 can digest a wider variety of ammunition. Chambered for .22LR, the Henry is also capable of cycling .22 Long and .22 Shorts. The same cannot be said for the majority of semi- automatic rimfires.

At the heart of the design is an extremely smooth action. It is so smooth in fact that many first timers simply cannot believe the gun has any internal parts. The Henry
Golden Boy is fed through a tubular magazine located beneath the barrel.

It is capable of holding 16- rounds of .22LR, 19- rounds of .22 Long and 21- rounds of .22 Short. Loading is fairly straightforward -- simply twist the magazine cap and remove the inner brass magazine tube, then begin dropping rounds in through the loading port. Once fully loaded, replace the inner magazine tube and twist lock it back in place. Admittedly, dropping rounds down a magazine tube isn't the fastest way to load a rifle. However, it certainly beats getting your fingers caught in a loading gate.

An 20" octagon barrel provides excellent down range accuracy. Adjustable rear Buckhorn sights are paired with a bead front sight that tracks extremely well. All steel parts, such as the barrel and lever, wear a deep blued finish.

The aluminum alloy receiver has a stunningly beautiful polished brass finish that the company refers to as "Brasslite", as do the buttplate and barrel band. Weighing in at 6.75 pounds, the receiver does not have an integrated rimfire scope rail like the standard rimfires. Instead, Henry sells a cantilever mount that attaches to the barrel for adding optics.

The buttstock and forend are American walnut that give the rifle a very pleasing and stylish appearance. While the Henry
Golden Boy .22 lacks a manual safety, it does have a have a half-cock safety that acts as a firing pin block, and works effectively at preventing the gun from discharging if dropped or banged.

A transfer bar safety prevents the gun from being discharged unless the hammer has been cocked all the way back, then trigger depressed. The rifle automatically returns to the safe position if the hammer is lowered manually.

For repair or maintenance, this family owned company arguably carries the best no nonsense lifetime warranty in the industry. Overall, the Henry
Golden Boy .22 is exceptionally smooth, accurate and reliable rimfire rifle made entirely here in the U.S.A. by craftsmen who take pride in their products.
