Rice Lake, Wis., Feb. 14, 2023 – Henry Repeating Arms, one of America’s leading firearm manufacturers, announced today the Homesteader 9mm, a feature-packed semi-automatic 9mm carbine cloaked in the gunmaker’s heritage design language built to meet the needs of property owners and weekend range visitors alike.

The Homesteader 9mm boasts premium materials and an adaptable feature set to provide effortless versatility for various roles, including home defense, protecting livestock from the predators that threaten them, and as a fun, approachable firearm for the shooting range using ammunition both widely available and affordable. To provide compatibility for the most common magazine patterns, the Homesteader 9mm utilizes removable magazine well adapters to accept Glock®, SIG Sauer®, or Smith & Wesson® M&P® style magazines, in addition to the included 5-round and 10-round Henry 9mm magazines.

Other notable features include a threaded barrel for suppressor use to minimize noise for neighbors at the range or at home and thoughtfully laid out, centrally located controls that will appeal to right- and left-handed users. Its compact size and lightweight frame provide maneuverability for close quarters and allow the firearm to be stored where some standard-sized rifles and shotguns may not fit. Intuitive, fast target acquisition is achieved with fully adjustable sights and maintained with features like a reciprocating mass inside the forearm to counteract recoil and non-slip leather-like texturing on the genuine American walnut furniture. Durable finishes like deeply blued steel, a matte sealant on the wood, and hard anodizing on the aluminum receiver keep the Homesteader resilient to a hardworking firearm’s inevitable wear and tear.

The manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $928 for the version with a Henry magazine well only and $959 for the versions that include an additional magazine well. All Henry Repeating Arms firearms are purchasable only through a federally licensed dealer.

    At that price and in the anaemic 9mm or even if the turtle velocity 45acp. (except in the price of ammo) It can’t compete with an Ar15 in 350 legend or 450 bushmaster and now with Winchester getting ready to release the 400 legend. The Ar15 hunter is pretty much set for straight wall cased cartridges that can easily make one shot kills out as far as 200 yards. At least the old Winchesters in the 351 and 401 had hunting power and they fell to the way side.

    Ah the naysayers prevail; you still tickle me after all these years.
    Take this little inconspicuous ‘normal’ looking carbine and team it up with one of Underwood Ammo’s 9mm offerings, or better yet, Federal’s 9BPLE and you’ve got a formidable little weapon any member of your family can wield.
    Any of you lamenting the 9mm’s potential out of platform like this have obviously not been on the receiving side of incoming rounds in any caliber.
    I personally prefer the old school look of the wood furniture, and will likely add one to the collection, but whew, $1K? Really?

  • Milt Morris February 17, 2023, 3:56 pm

    The Marlin Camp .45 ACP is like gold on Gunbroker. Most men want more power than a 9mm carbine possesses.
    If Henry makes this carbine in .45 ACP or 10mm, I think they’ll sell like hot cakes.

  • Milt Morris February 17, 2023, 12:26 pm

    It looks like a Ruger PC9 carbine with a wood stock & forend. I hope Henry provides a cheaper version with as many options as Ruger does.

  • Jay February 17, 2023, 12:20 pm

    Nice. I hope that Imperato and his crew will offer the Homesteader in .40 S&W and .45 ACP as well…soon! 😉

    • Milt Morris February 17, 2023, 12:27 pm

      Amen. A .45 ACP would make this a buy.

  • Kevin February 17, 2023, 11:05 am

    Why not make it standard with Glock mags rather than charging extra for an attachment? When I first saw this article, I thought….OBoy, I want one, but not at that price or anywhere close. Maybe $500 or even $600, but not over a grand with tax. Not for me.

  • Ken February 17, 2023, 10:05 am

    Sorry Henry, but I just don’t see a $1,000 rifle when looking at the photo, nor do I see a family-resemblance to your other fine rifles. But others will probably disagree and put it on their short list. In 9mm, I’d prefer to stick with a Browning Hi Power. I’ve taken numerous feral hogs with it, under 50 yds., but would not attempt to go beyond that in either size or distance . . . unless it was two legged. There’s just nothing appealing about the design. It just seems angular, boxy, somewhat like one of Daisy’s old attempts at a plastic BB-gun design. Have I gone too far? Again, sorry I have an opinion.

  • RICKY PRICE February 17, 2023, 9:25 am

    Just not enough power for me in a rifle. Take a coyote if it was not to far out. Too much money for a rifle .

  • The Centimeter February 17, 2023, 8:57 am

    I love Henry and I love the idea of a magazine-fed lever-action carbine. Now, take this concept, and make it in 10mm. Now that would be an all purpose gun suitable for the farm/ homestead.

  • DEFENDER February 17, 2023, 8:39 am

    I understand and appreciate the classic look and simplicity.
    ie “Ranch Gun”.
    BUT – A short top-mounted Rail for a Red Dot, or short say 3×5 scope would be a BIG help
    for versatility, And not hurt the classic look that much.
    Ruger 10/22 has mounting holes for this.

    I shoot an AR Platform 9mm in Multi-gun Competition most every month.
    Adapted(with some creativity)(Adapter) to take Full S&W M&P9mm Mags @ 17rds each.
    So I use 4 standard M&P9 mag pouches(2×2) for matches – M&P9mm.

  • Mike in a Truck February 17, 2023, 8:20 am

    I see this carbine more for its value for training tykes that are ready to move up from 22 rifles to a center fire. Its weak cartridge is not suitable for the farm/ homestead. Better a leveraction in 357 magnum.

  • David February 17, 2023, 7:53 am

    please 45 acp

    • Brian February 17, 2023, 8:14 am

      Would love this in 45, especially with the threaded barrel. Would accept 10mm as well but have to assume neither is likely.

    • Willie-O February 17, 2023, 8:53 am

      Ahh, the “modern” version of the Marlin “Camp Carbine” series, which consisted of (2) classic models – the “Camp 9 and Camp 45”. Both made by Marlin and used common 9mm and .45acp handgun magazines of the period. Sadly they were discontinued primarily due to demand for MSR’s. Very little is truly “NEW”. A new name given to classic.

  • Dwane February 17, 2023, 7:20 am

    Updated version of the Marlin Model 9. It uses S&W 5906 mags.
    Out with the old, in with the new.
