Henry rifles

Hi,new on this part of the forum.
I would like to know if someone know the Henry repeating arms. I have 2 of them 22 LR and they are very nice rifles. The lever action is much more smooth than my 30-30 Marlin. These rifles are made in America and what surprised me the most is that, when I sent questions by e-mail, the president of the compagny answered himself to all the questions I asked.

Hi, sorry for my comment. I did'n realized you were reffering to the Henry Mini Bolt. My translation from French to English and English to French is not always easy. When you'r not a perfect bilingual person, it's always scaring to translate what you'r thinking. Here in Qc we don't have the chance to practice our English.

Hi nortcan,

Your English is far better than my French. I take the easy way out if anything needs translating; I ask my wife. You have nothing to apologize for. Your English sounded pretty good in the coal stove video.

Thank you very much for your comments. I love stoves, firearms and practice my English. A good thing about this forum is the respect for each others.
Salutations to you and your wife, from Qc, Canada

grumpy, I come back to your daughter's Mini Bolt. Is the bolt action easy to work or is it stiff and rough to operate? I ask it because I bought a Winchester 22, bolt action in 2007. In my head Winchester = made in USA. When I arrived home I look more closely at the rifle and saw on the barrel : made in Russia! I called the dealer and he told me that these rifles were very solid and well made...Yes it was solid but very unpleasant to shoot with. The bolt action was rough and very stiff. I told to myself that it's because it's new but it never changed. So last Thursday I sold it and bought a Henry the next day. It's a Golden Boy 22LR. What a difference! My wife hated to shoot with the Winchester but love the smooth lever action of the Henry. OK, a bit long but don't forget my question about your M.B.A.
Thank you,

What part of Quebec are you from? My wife is from Thetford Mines in Estrie. Most of her family lives there or in Sherbrooke, also in Estrie.

I'm from the Mauricie area. It's south of Trois-rivieres. The guy who bought my Winchester was from Danville and is working at the mine in Thetford Mines.

OK now, I hope someone will come back with a Henry Rifle story. Today I just made my Golden Boy more shinning. The stock was a little bit too fade for my personnal taste so I decided to rub it with a pumice stone product. It gaves a brighter finish but not enough so I applied 2 coats of Turtle Wax, liquid wax (the only one I had). Wow, now it's the way I like it :glossy. I know that finish don't please everybody but I love it. Some rare and expensive arms have that kind of finish. When I bought my Marlin 30-30, the stock was looking like a BB rifle, the toy one. I removed the stock and ordered a Macon Gunstocks nice graded American Claro Walnut set. Lot of work to fit but super look. I finished it with Tru-Oil Gun Stock Finish glossy... Super. I don't hunt any more, just target shooting for fun. The Marlin is a 2007 and never shooted a single time. I like the look of that lever action rifle. The glossy finish is a lot more fragile and easy to scratch, more care is needed , not the best finish for hunting...

No it's good, smooth, no problems at all, I really like this gun and choose it over my others for varmint control. Also the bolt comes out real easy, I can then leave it out with no worry , stash the bolt where only I know it is, With a squeeze of the trigger it's back in and ready to go. I have never needed to sight it in either. Made in Brooklyn New York to boot.

Just a note of interest, Henrys have a long history supporting the formation of the US. It all started not too far from where I live, just accost the Delaware River near the current town of Wind Gap PA. Follow the links then scroll down to 'Area Attractions'.

Enjoy!
