I was Henry rifles mentioned in the thread about lever action rimfires started by EKC. Rather than hijack that thread, I wanted to ask all you firearm trivia experts out there: What is the connection between the original Henry Rifle and the Henry Repeating Arms company today? They say in their website that they are descended from the original Henry. Did Mr. Henry have his own company? I have heard he was employed by Winchester when he designed the rifle. I'm not doubting the company's claims, just wondering what the connection is. Ten pieces of leftover Halloween candy for an answer!
My sons have a bolt action Henry single shot rifle and it's a nice little beginner gun....Louis
