Henry Repeating Arms Introduces Long Ranger in 6.5 Creedmoor and American Eagle Rifles

posted on January 4, 2019

Henry Repeating Arms has announced two new lever-action rifles for 2019: the handsome .22-caliber American Eagle and the Long Ranger chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor.

The company’s Long Ranger lever-action rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor uses a 22-inch blued steel sporter-contoured, free-floated barrel with a 1:8″ twist to get the most accuracy out of the high BC bullet. The American walnut stock sports deep checkering, a soft rubber recoil pad and a steel forestock cap. The rifle utilizes a chromed-steel bolt and a six-lug rotary head, worked via a geared action to provide a solid lockup similar to that of a bolt-action rifle. Other features include a detachable, 4-round box magazine and a drilled and tapped receiver. The Long Ranger in 6.5 Creedmoor has an MSRP of $1,066.

The new American Eagle rifle, built on Henry’s renowned Golden Boy platform, is available chambered for .22 Short, .22 Long and .22 Long Rifle cartridges. The rifle’s receiver cover, barrel band and buttplate are nickel plated while the octagonal barrel and magazine tube wear a deep, blued finish.

The American walnut stock features a unique finish to mimic the look of ivory. Deep checkering, beautiful scroll work and bald eagle head deeply engraved into the buttstock finish off this patriotic rifle. The new American Eagle rifle has an MSRP of $950.
