Henry Homestead – A Reminder That Guns Are Meant to Be Fun
Henry’s Homesteader pistol-caliber carbine offers simple yet proven operation in today’s complex world of rifles and handguns, with three versions that accept Glock, Sig Sauer or Smith & Wesson magazines.
This rifle features an ambidextrous bolt handle and magazine release for ease of use by right and left-handed shooters alike, making it ideally suited for small game hunting as well as personal defense purposes.
Early Life and Education
Henry Homesteader offers an important reminder that firearms should be fun. A full-sized 9mm carbine designed with two-piece stock that accommodates for left or right-handed shooters, the Henry Homesteader offers full ambidextrous shooting capability.
Henry was introduced to nature at an early age through Grandfather O’Hern who taught him the names of flowers that lined farm fields, trees in forests and birds and animals that made their home there. This love for nature would remain with Henry all throughout his life.
He kept an eye on the local economy, realizing that its many rivers were impeding his ability to transport crops to potential coastal markets. So he raised funds for a bridge crossing the Monocacy River.
In a world full of powerful long-range rifles, concealed-carry handguns, and AR-style carbines equipped for any disaster–natural or manmade–the Henry Homestead is a refreshing reminder that guns should be fun. An easy-to-shoot, low-recoil plinker with great handling characteristics that makes an ideal partner for 9mm pistol owners or those simply seeking something different than what they already own.
The Homesteader comes in three models that differ by what magazines they can accept: Henry’s proprietary straight-profile removable magazines are included with each Homesteader model, while other versions include polymer magazine well adapters allowing it to use Glock and SIG Sauer M&P pistol series magazines as well as Glock/Sig Sauer pistol series magazines – each version comes equipped with both 5-round and 10-round magazines for maximum reliability and attractiveness.
Achievement and Honors
Henry was recognized for his hard work throughout his life, earning various accolades as a result. As a high school football star he won the city championship as quarterback as well as All-City, All-State, and All-American honors. Additionally he served his community and received various civic and charitable awards.
The Homesteader features a two-piece stock designed to make it fully ambidextrous with centrally mounted tang safety, magazine release located ahead of magazine, and bolt hold-open mechanisms accessible from either side of receiver. Though its charging handle comes mounted to the right from factory, a cutout on its left allows users to move it as desired.
Henry’s innovative pistol caliber carbine features sleek American walnut furniture with well-placed controls for intuitive use. Available in three versions to accommodate most 9mm magazine patterns.
Frick worked to cultivate and preserve his image as an idealized self-made family patriarch who collected heirlooms, donated generously, was generous with charitable causes, patronized the arts and was revered in society. Today this idealized image continues at three museums: West Overton Museum in Pittsburgh; Gayton and Homestead museums in Scranton and The Frick Collection in Manhattan – each serving to reinforce it further.
Frick projected an image of confidence and fortitude in his personal life. For instance, when anarchist Alexander Berkman barged into his office and attacked him with a bladed implement, Frick used his secretary as support to fight back until his attacker had been subdued.
The Henry Homesteader pistol caliber carbine features a detachable polymer magazine well adapter compatible with Glock, SIG Sauer and Smith & Wesson M&P pistol magazines as well as two 10-round magazines for use with its black nitride finish and forged steel receiver.
The Henry Homesteader pistol caliber carbine comes in three distinct versions, one feeding from its own proprietary magazine while the others feature adapters to accept Glock magazines.
Henry was seemingly uninterested in money despite its success at his salt works; even so, a dry cleaner returned a check he inadvertently left behind in his suit pocket.
Homestead was also indifferent to politics. While other wealthy industrialists such as Carnegie and Frick brought unions in at their plants to control costs for workers, Homestead refused to do the same; leading to labor disputes which ultimately resulted in its establishment.
