Henry Repeating Arms has announced two additions to its rifle line, a Long Ranger lever-action chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor (Model H014-65), and the .22-cal. American Eagle (Model H004AE), which is built on the Henry Golden Boy platform.
The 6.5 Creedmoor Long Ranger features a 22” blued steel sporter free-floating barrel, and a buttstock and forestock made from figured grain American walnut that is deeply checkered and capped with a solid soft rubber recoil pad on the back. MSRP is $1,066.
The Henry American Eagle rifle is built on the award-winning Henry Golden Boy platform chambered in .22 S/L/LR. The receiver cover, barrel band, and buttplate are all nickel plated with a mirror-like finish. The rifle’s furniture features a wood finish not found on any other Henry models, closely mimicking the look of ivory. The complex process starts with American walnut that gets layers of primers and ivory color that are sanded down between applications to highlight the wood grain and achieve a natural look. The ivory-colored wood is then deeply engraved with aggressive checkering, leafy vine scrollwork, and the head of a bald eagle. After engraving the wood is finished with a fixative to protect the stocks’ color. MSRP is $950.
