Henry Repeating Arms, in partnership with Baron Engraving and Davidson’s Inc., just launched one seriously awesome series of rifles. The Cody Firearms Museum Collectors Series brings a one-of-a-kind, New Original Henry Rifle to market. The guns harken back to a bygone era of gunmaking.
New Original Henry Rifle
Inspired by 19th century master firearms engraver Louis D. Nimschke, the Cody guns feature ornate engraving and custom design. Borrowing from Nimschke’s style, Baron Engraving’s master hand engraver Robert Bunting adorns the brass receiver with Nimschke’s signature American scrollwork. It blends with fine European detailing. Additionally, the brass receiver comes brilliantly polished and silver-plated.
It comes with nitre-blued screws and an exhibition-grade American walnut stock. The stock comes capped with a hand-engraved, silver-plated crescent buttplate. True to the 1860 patent, the New Original Henry Rifle features a blued, one-piece octagonal barrel and magazine. A classic folding ladder rear sight and blade front sight complete the timeless package. The rifle chambers .44-50 WCF, with a 13-round capacity.
Henry’s support of the Cody Firearms Museum proves lasting. The remarkable center, located at The Buffalo Bill Center of the West, resides 50 miles from Yellowstone National Park. It provides arguably the most impressive collection of guns found anywhere. The collection includes more than 4,000 guns and 10,000 artifacts. The Cody Firearms Museum Collectors Series offers the opportunity to purchase limited-edition firearms inspired by the most prices pieces in the museum.
The New Original Henry Rifle will remain available via charitable auction on Gungroker.com through Flag Day, June 14. NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits attendees can view the rifle displayed in the Henry Repeating Arms booth. A custom, heavyweight, hand-tooled leather scabbard comes with the rifle in the auction.
The winning bidder retains the option to display the rifle in the museum for up to one year. The display comes with personal recognition during the rifle load. For even more info, please visit henryusa.com.
