Long Ranger Express .223 Rem/5.56 NATO
When the Henry Long Ranger was released in 2016, we set a new bar in lever action precision. Combining bolt action accuracy with the speed of a lever gun, the Long Ranger’s six-lug rotary bolt, aerospace-grade aluminum construction, free-floated barrel, and detachable box magazine make for a best-in-class hunting platform. Building on the success of those original Long Rangers, we set out to create a utilitarian, multi-purpose, and exceedingly capable rifle for the contemporary outdoorsman. More than just a precision game-getter, the 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. We’ve chosen to chamber the Long Ranger Express in the ubiquitous .223 Rem/5.56 NATO exclusively, fed from a 5-round steel-bodied detachable box magazine. The Express features a quick-handling carbine length 16.5” barrel, threaded 1/2×28 to accept the muzzle device of your choosing. You may opt for a muzzle brake to reduce felt recoil and keep the Express flat on target in the field, or a suppressor to reduce your signature and keep peace with the neighbors.
The most obvious aesthetic departure from the standard H014 is the Long Ranger Express’ weather-resistant birch laminate furniture set, which provides excellent moisture resistance, durability, and stability when the temperatures and humidity are anything but. 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 the high-speed red dot, versatile low-power variable optic, or precise fixed magnification scope of your choice. Mission dictates gear, and the Long Ranger Express is prepared to be configured for yours.
For the fox in the chicken coop, the hog rooting the crop, or whatever you may find at the edge of your property line and beyond, the Long Ranger Express is prepared to go to work.
