Designed in 1860 by Benjamin Henry, the Henry rifle was a revolution in arms design. The Henry rifle was not the first lever-action rifle, but it was the first that incorporated design elements that we still see today.
The Henry rifle was designed with a centrally located hammer. When operated, the lever would both cock the hammer and place a new round in the chamber. The original Henry rifle was chambered in .44 rimfire that could hold, at the time, an astonishing 16 rounds of ammunition. The Henry served in a limited role in the Civil War, but was never a general-issue weapon.
The current Henry Repeating Arms is not connected to Benjamin Henry in any way, but still produces fine lever-action rifles based on the Henry design. Current Henry rifles are known for their accuracy, reliability, and power. These lever-action rifles are found in the hands of Western enthusiasts, hunters, and those searching for a finely made American rifle. Henry rifles are manufactured in a variety of calibers and cartridges with many special editions released every year.
The Henry rifle was the weapon of choice for Native Americans at the Battle for Little Bighorn. Thousands of .44 rimfire cases were found
At the Battle of Allatoona Pass, Major Ludlow was quoted as saying, “What saved us that day was the fact that we had a number of Henry rifles”
