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.
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.
Atop the black-anodized aerospace-grade aluminum receiver sits a factory mounted Picatinny rail, ready to accept a red dot, variable optic or fixed-magnification scope of your choice.
The Long Ranger Express has an MSRP of $1,235. For more information, visit henryusa.com.
