Henry Repeating Arms developed its Long Ranger in 2016 as a precision rifle in the form of a lever gun. Unlike other lever-action rifles, the Long Ranger uses a six-lug bolt that locks into the barrel, providing consistent, repeatable performance for each shot. Now, in 2022, Henry is offering a utilitarian take on the design with the Long Ranger Express.
Standout features of the Henry Long Ranger Express, chambered in 5.56 NATO, include a compact 16.5" barrel with a 1:9" twist rate and a five-round detachable magazine. The barrel is threaded with a 1/2"-28 TPI thread pitch, making it easy to attach suppressors or other muzzle devices. The rifle is built on an aluminum receiver, which is topped by a Picatinny optics rail and mated to a free-floated, tapered barrel. The gun is also outfitted with weather-resistant birch-laminate furniture, featuring sling swivels at the front and rear, as well as a black rubber buttpad to soften recoil.
Unloaded, the Henry Long Ranger Express weighs 7 lbs., and the overall length is 37". The barrel is treated with a blued finish, and the receiver features a hard-anodized black finish. Suggested retail pricing on the new Henry Long Ranger Express is $1,235. For more information, visit henryusa.com.
