Henry Repeating Arms is resurrecting a firearm that has not been produced by another major manufacturer since 2002. The new Henry Garden Gun Smoothbore .22 is built on Henry’s Classic Lever Action .22 platform, which has surpassed more than 1 million units sold mark in late 2017. This .22-cal. shotgun is purpose built for close-range pest control using .22 LR shotshell cartridges.

“This may be a niche product, but it fills that niche particularly well,” says Henry Repeating Arms President and Owner Anthony Imperato. “For the farmer or the gardener, it’s something convenient to keep close at hand to dispatch pests without using a level of firepower that could cause even more property damage than the pests themselves.” 

The use of .22 LR shotshells are favored for tight quarters or enclosed spaces due to their quieter report, negligible potential for harmful ricochet, and an impact that is unlikely to penetrate walls and roofs.

The 18.5″ round blued steel barrel of the Henry Garden Gun is void of any rifling to keep a tighter shot pattern when compared to shooting the same cartridge from a rifled barrel, which extends the effective range. The firearm also features a 15-round tubular magazine and ash wood furniture finished with a black stain to differentiate it from the otherwise very similar Henry Classic Lever Action .22.

MSRP is $421. For more information, visit henryusa.com.
