Henry Repeating Arms has announced a release date for its Henry Golden Boy Silver Anniversary Edition rifle.
Starting at noon Eastern on Thursday, October 13, the limited-edition rifles will be available for purchase at the Henry Repeating Arms’ website while supplies last.
The sale of these rifles will aid various foundations and organizations supported by the charitable branch of Henry Repeating Arms: Guns For Great Causes.
Built on the Henry’s Golden Boy platform, this Silver Anniversary edition sports a nickel-plated receiver cover, barrel band and buttplate. In contrast, the buttstock and forestock are fashioned from black stained hardwood with a weather-resistant coating, similar to the All-Weather rifles found elsewhere in Henry’s lineup. The middle of the buttstock features an inlaid nickel-plated medallion stamped with the Henry Repeating Arms frontiersman and 25th-anniversary logo. An engraving on the upper tang of the receiver is filled with silver paint, reading “Silver Anniversary 1-of-1,000.” Other specifications are borrowed directly from the Golden Boy, including a tube magazine with a capacity for 16 rounds of .22 Long Rifle or 21 rounds of .22 Short, 20-inch blued steel octagon barrel and fully adjustable sights.
Production for the Golden Boy Silver Anniversary edition lever-action rifle is limited to 1,000 units. All of the proceeds from each sale will raise a total of $1,000,000 for donation to children’s hospitals, military veterans and first responders’ organizations, shooting sports, hunting heritage and wildlife conservation advocates.
Henry Repeating Arms CEO and Founder, Anthony Imperato, recently began dispersing portions of the Silver Anniversary pledge to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars and Shadow Warriors Project. The entire pledge should be distributed by March 2023.
“Thanks to the hard work of more than 600 employees and the support of millions of customers worldwide, we are in the fortunate position of being able to help the causes that we believe in,” said Imperato. “This rifle is the culmination of our 25th-anniversary celebrations, and it’s all about giving back. I am extremely proud of what our Guns for Great Causes endeavors have accomplished in these two-plus decades.”
The Henry Golden Boy Silver Anniversary edition rifles will go for $1,000 each, plus shipping and handling. To purchase, go to the Henry website at noon on Thursday, October 13. Learn more at the Henry Repeating Arms website.
