Henry Repeating Arms Auctions Special Edition Rifles for 20th Anniversary

posted on October 28, 2017

Henry Repeating Arms is proudly celebrating 20 years of American manufacturing and its commitment to providing quality, reliability and award-winning customer service. To mark its 20th anniversary, the iconic brand has partnered with the Hunting Heritage Trust to auction 20 Anniversary Edition Big Boy .44 Mag. rifles with 100 percent of the proceeds going to a range of non-profit organizations working to support hunting, shooting and wildlife conservation.

“The incredible, positive impact that these organizations have had on the shooting sports industry is immeasurable and we’re proud to have the opportunity to help fund their work for years to come,” said Anthony Imperato, president and owner of Henry Repeating Arms, in a press release. “Collectors and Henry enthusiasts alike will be drawn to the intricate, hand-engraved details these rifles will feature, along with their special Anniversary-edition serial numbers.”

The Anniversary Edition Big Boy rifles feature presentation-grade AAA American Walnut and collectible “One of Twenty” serial numbers. Serial No. 1 features a highly-detailed, hand-engraved custom brass receiver with the manufacturer’s motto, “Made in America or Not Made at All.” The other 19 rifles in the series will be machine engraved and hand-chased. Each rifle will be auctioned on GunBroker.com starting with the first serial number.

The organizations that the auctions will benefit include the National Rifle Association Foundation (NRA), the Boone & Crockett Club, the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, Dallas Safari Club, Ducks Unlimited, the Hunting Heritage Trust, Kids & Clays, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the National Wild Turkey Federation and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, among others.

Henry Repeating Arms’ history is highlighted by countless philanthropic efforts and charitable contributions to a variety of organizations that support the shooting sports, hunting, wildlife conservation and those that serve to protect and defend the second amendment. The manufacturer also supports every national youth shooting sports program offered today through cash and custom firearms donations, and critical event sponsorships. The youth organizations supported include the Youth Shooting Sports Alliance, the NRA’s Youth Programs and the International Hunter’s Education Association.

To further its charitable efforts, the company formed a program called “Guns for Great Causes” which has helped raise significant funds to aid children’s hospitals, individual families as well as national and local veterans and first-responders organizations.

In recognition of its ongoing support of the NRA over the past 20 years, Henry Repeating Arms was presented with the President’s Special Recognition Award. The award highlighted the company’s distinguished charitable contributions and philanthropic leadership, which has helped raise more than $2.7 million dollars and supported a wide range of NRA programs.
