Henry Rifles: Made In America, For America

“Made in America, or not made at all.”

The Henry rifles are well-loved by gun enthusiasts and known as the fore-runner to the Winchester rifles. Whether buying for the classic look or for tactical arms design, these rifles have developed a following due to the Henry Repeating Arms motto “Made in America, or not made at all.”

Add in that the company runs a Guns For Great Causes program providing charity for various recipients important to gun owners, the Henry rifle has become a symbol of American quality and family. This is a gun made in America, for America.

Abe Lincoln’s Famous Henry Rifle

The most famous Henry rifle is the gold-mounted, engraved rifle presented to President Abraham Lincoln in an effort to obtain his influence in purchasing the rifles for the war effort. It is currently on display at the National Museum of American History’s Kenneth E. Behring Center as part of “Abraham Lincoln: An Extraordinary Life” exhibit.

A number of Henry rifles were purchased for the war effort and gained popularity with both soldiers and civilians. One Confederate officer is credited with the phrase, “It’s a rifle that you could load on Sunday and shoot all week long.”

Although the Henry rifle made a great influence during the war, it did not become the dominant firearm for the western frontier. It still made a significant contribution and became a popular favorite that lasts through today.
