For their 20th Anniversary this year, Henry Repeating Arms made a “One of Twenty” Edition of the Big Boy .44 magnum lever action rifle. The “One of Twenty” Edition boasts hand-engraving, AAA-grade American Walnut, special “One of “Twenty” serial numbers and Presentation Walnut Display Cases.
The rifle being auctioned here is serial number 20HENRY16. One hundred percent of the auction proceeds will be donated to the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation’s Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP). The auction will be on onGunBroker until January 7, 2018.
The engraving on this rifle is by award-winning Baron Engraving of Trumbull, CT. Baron has provided custom engraving services for America’s firearms manufacturers, and also other organizations including Ducks Unlimited, the National Wild Turkey Federation, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, the National Rifle Association, and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Baron has also designed and engraved more than 25 one-of-a-kind firearms for the official SHOT Show Auction each year.
In 2016, 1,000 freedom-loving shooters simultaneously fired 1,000 Henry Repeating Arms Golden Boy Silver rifles at the NRA Whittington Center in New Mexico. Supporting the shooting sports has always been important to Henry Repeating Arms, so company founder and President Anthony Imperato is continuing the tradition as the company marks its 20th anniversary. Henry has partnered with the Hunting Heritage Trust to auction the “One of Twenty” Anniversary Edition Big Boy .44 Magnum rifles, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to non-profit organizations working to support hunting, shooting and wildlife conservation in America.
“Over the past two decades, I’ve come to realize that it’s our customers that make Henry the brand it is today,” said Imperato. “Henry is a brand that represents many different things for customers from all walks of life. It’s their stories, their passion for Henry and shooting sports that continue to push us to be the best possible firearms manufacturer we can be.”
It is expected that the “One of Twenty” edition will raise in excess of $100,000.00 for programs in support of America’s hunting and shooting sports heritage.
