Henry Repeating Arms has announced a release date and time for the launch of its Henry Golden Boy “Silver Anniversary” Edition rifle. Starting at noon Eastern on Thursday, October 13, the limited-edition rifles will be available exclusively through Henry Repeating Arms’ website while supplies last. The company is presenting all proceeds from selling these rifles to various foundations and organizations supported by the charitable branch of Henry Repeating Arms, Guns For Great Causes.
Production is limited to 1,000 units, and 100 percent 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. Anthony Imperato, Henry Repeating Arms CEO and Founder has already begun dispersing portions of the Silver Anniversary pledge to Tunnel to Towers Foundation, American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, and Shadow Warriors Project, with the entire pledge scheduled to 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.”
Built on the award-winning Golden Boy platform, this Silver Anniversary edition features a nickel-plated receiver cover, barrel band, and buttplate. In sharp color contrast, the buttstock and fore-end are fashioned from black-stained hardwood with a durable weather-resistant coating, not unlike the All-Weather rifles found elsewhere in Henry’s product catalog. The middle of the buttstock features an inlaid nickel-plated medallion stamped with the iconic Henry Repeating Arms frontiersman and 25th-anniversary logo. An engraving on the upper tang of the receiver is filled with silver paint and reads, “Silver Anniversary 1-of-1,000.” Other specifications are borrowed directly from the Golden Boy, including a tubular magazine with a capacity for 16 rounds of .22 Long Rifle or 21 rounds of .22 Short, a 20-inch blued steel octagonal barrel, and fully adjustable sights.
