Staff of Guns and Shooting online reviewed the Henry .30-.30 rifle. This firearm shot accurately and it was considered fun to shoot. It is heavy, weight-wise, so recoil is not pronounced. Reviewers believed the firearm was heavier than it needed to be and complained that it was uncomfortable to carry it. But it was noted that a lighter gun would also have more recoil. User preference would be a big factor in choosing this rifle. If the priority is less recoil, this model would be a good choice. However, if carrying a heavy gun is unappealing, going for a lighter steel model like the Henry H009 might be a better option.

Chris Dumm of the website The Truth About Guns reviewed the Henry Big Boy .44 Magnum. He makes it clear that this is not a replica of the original Henry rifles, but still a stunning and solid weapon. Loading is not easy as it involves dropping cartridges into the tube, but it does allow for loading without getting fingers jammed – a desirable attribute if one is hunting in a remote area. He mentions that aiming is very sensitive, so make sure the sites are tightened or shots will be off.

Cabela's is a major dealer of Henry rifles and it keeps all the reviews of its models on one page. While these are consumer reviews, and not professional ones, they can still be illustrative. The Big Boy .357 Mag is considered accurate and smooth, but needed an adjustment for accuracy at 50 yards. The user rated it five out of five stars. Many also liked the .44 Mag because of its accuracy. Reviews also indicate many repeat buyers and a very loyal following.
