Henry Repeating Arms adds new models into its lever action rifle inventory, offering a 6.5 Creedmoor Long Ranger rife and a .22 S/L/LR Henry American Eagle.
The Long Ranger lever action rifle boasts a 22-inch, free-floated blued steel sporter barrel with American walnut buttstock and forestock. The wood is checkered and capped with a rubber recoil pad on the rear while the forestock features a steel forestock cap on the front.
The Long Ranger does not offer an external safety, instead relying on an in-hammer sliding transfer bar safety. Henry says this set-up ensures the rifle will not fire unless the hammer is cocked and the trigger pulled. The rifle ships with a four-round box magazine that is released using a flush-mounted blackened steel magazine release button. The 6.5 Creedmoor Long Ranger rifle features a MSRP of $1,066.
The Henry American Eagle rifle follows the Long Ranger rifle into Henry’s lineup, bringing a .22 S/L/LR model to Henry Arms fans. The Henry American Eagle rifle is built on the company’s famed Golden Boy platform, but uses a wood finish not found on any of Henry’s other rifles.
Replicating the look of ivory, the rifle’s wood finish begins with American walnut that is layered with primer and an ivory color. The wood is then engraved with a checkered pattern, leafy vine scrollwork and topped with an engraving of the head of a bald eagle. The sleek Henry American Eagle is available from Henry dealers with a price tag of $950.
