The Iron Frame Henry, New Haven Arms Company manufactured approximately 275 iron frame Henry rifles concurrently with the brass frame rifles in 1861 and 1862.

The iron frame models had a case-hardened iron receiver, hammer, loading lever and buttplate.

Production of all Henry rifles ended in 1866 with approximately 14,000 units having been manufactured.
