First Look Henry Long Ranger Express Lead

Building on the success of the original Long Rangers, Henry Repeating Arms set out to create a utilitarian, multi-purpose and capable rifle for the contemporary outdoorsman. More than just a precision game-getter, the new trimmed down and ruggedized Long Ranger Express is equally capable at hunting your property as it is defending it.

Henry Long Ranger Express Lever Action Rifle

For an all-purpose rifle, practical accuracy, mobility and ammunition availability should be prioritized over outright firepower. Henry chose to chamber the Long Ranger Express in .223 Rem./5.56 NATO, fed from a 5-round steel-bodied detachable box magazine. The Express features a quick-handling carbine-length 16½-inch barrel, threaded ⅝×24 to accept a muzzle device.

The most obvious aesthetic departure from the standard Long Ranger is the Express’ weather-resistant birch laminate furniture, which provides increased moisture resistance, durability and stability. Integral sling swivels sit fore and aft, and a solid black rubber recoil pad aids in recoil control and follow-up shot speed, where this lever action excels.

The Long Ranger Express has an MSRP of $1,235. For more information, visit
