New for 2023: Henry Repeating Arms Homesteader

Semi-automatic 9 mm pistol-caliber carbines are nothing new—unless you are an icon in the lever-action rifle world!

posted on January 24, 2023

NRA Women editors have long touted the 9 mm pistol-caliber carbine (PCC) as an ideal semi-automatic rifle to embrace, not only for beginning shooters, but for those who want a fun day at the range without having to pack different ammo or other gear for a different setup than their 9 mm pistols. While most major gun makers have at least one PCC in their lineups, we were pleasantly surprised at this unexpected entry into the category by one of today’s most iconic lever-action manufacturers, Henry Repeating Arms. That’s right, while many companies famous for semi-autos were wowing us at with early looks at new lever-action varieties being added to their 2023 catalogs, Henry surprised us all at SHOT Show by going in the opposite direction with its new Homesteader 9 mm pistol-caliber carbine.

The best thing about the PCC is that if you already own a Glock, SIG Sauer M&P9 mm handgun, you can simply use one of the adaptors to accommodate your mags rather than the proprietary Henry magazine. This makes it one of the most versatile PCCs on the market. Another great feature for this rifle is that it’s ambidextrous. A two-piece wood stock, open sights and a 16" threaded barrel round out the basic features on this SHOT Show surprise. MSRP is $928. Check back on this site for a complete review on this rifle, but for now, keep an eye out on for more, and check out the NRA American Rifleman video here.
