Henry Salutes The American Legion With New Tribute Edition Rifles

A new line of American Legion Tribute Edition rifles from Henry Repeating Arms is now available to American Legion members at discounted factory-direct pricing. Visit henryusa.com/american-legion for more information.

RICE LAKE, Wis., July 11, 2024 – Henry is pleased to announce a new collection of tribute edition rifles to support The American Legion, its members, and their mission to enhance the well-being of America’s veterans, their families, America’s military, and communities through mutual helpfulness. The rifles are now available to American Legion members at discounted factory-direct pricing. Henry Repeating Arms donates a portion of every sale back to The American Legion.

To further support the partnership, Henry Repeating Arms is auctioning a collector’s set containing serial number one of each rifle in the series and donating all proceeds to The American Legion. The auction concludes on July 24 at 9 p.m. Eastern.

The Henry Golden Boy American Legion Tribute Edition .22 S/L/LR features a nickel-plated and engraved receiver cover with 24kt gold-plated highlights for contrast.

Chartered by Congress in 1919, The American Legion has more than 1.6 million members, making it the nation’s largest veterans service organization. The organization is largely responsible for the G.I. Bill, which made higher education, home ownership, and job training accessible to millions of World War II veterans and millions more veterans after that. American Legion members volunteer their time to mentor children and youth, including the Junior Shooting Sports Program. In fact, program alumni have gone on to win Olympic medals in the sport.

 

The Henry Big Boy Brass American Legion Tribute Edition .44 Magnum/.44 Spl features an engraved receiver machined from a solid piece of hardened brass.

The American Legion Tribute Edition rifles are available in three unique models based on some of Henry’s most popular rifles. The Golden Boy American Legion Tribute Edition is chambered for .22 S/L/LR and features an engraved nickel-plated receiver cover with 24kt gold plated highlights. This rifle’s genuine American walnut forearm is engraved with the American Legion’s four pillars: Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation, National Security, Americanism, and Youth. The Big Boy Brass American Legion Tribute Edition steps up the firepower with a rifle chambered in .44 Magnum and .44 Special featuring an engraved receiver machined from a solid piece of hardened brass, an iconic octagon barrel, and genuine American walnut stocks. The third rifle in the collection, the Big Boy X Model American Legion Tribute Edition, offers maximum versatility and usability with durable synthetic furniture, fiber optic sights, and a threaded barrel, and it is chambered for the ubiquitous .357 Magnum and .38 Special cartridges. The buttstock is laser engraved with the American Legion logo.

“We are immensely grateful to America’s veterans and the organizations dedicated to supporting them and their families,” said Anthony Imperato, Founder and CEO of Henry Repeating Arms. “We build these rifles to honor their sacrifices and celebrate the driving spirit of The American Legion, which stands as a beacon of hope and progress for those who have served this country.”

DALLAS, Texas, May 20, 2024 – In a special moment during the NRA Foundation Banquet and Auction in Dallas, Texas, the President of Henry Repeating Arms, one of America’s leading firearms manufacturers and the world leader in the lever action category, presented a limited-edition New Original Silver Deluxe Engraved rifle to retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady, America’s most decorated living veteran.

As the highlight of the patriotic event, the presentation celebrated the extraordinary service and courage of Texas native General Patrick Brady, one of only two living veterans to hold both the Medal of Honor and the Distinguished Service Cross, the nation’s highest and second-highest military awards. The event underscored Henry Repeating Arms’ commitment to honoring American heroes and celebrating their legacy.

The 1-of-1,000 New Original Henry Silver Deluxe Engraved rifle, the crown jewel of the Henry Repeating Arms catalog, embodies the spirit of tradition and craftsmanship that Henry Repeating Arms is renowned for. It features exquisite engraving, highly figured genuine American walnut furniture and a period-correct octagonal blued steel barrel polished to a mirror-like finish. Based on the original patent for the world’s first successful repeating rifle, the piece was chosen as a symbol of the company’s gratitude for General Brady’s contributions to the nation.

“It is heroes like General Brady who inspire us to strive for excellence in all pursuits and to commit ourselves to the values we hold dear,” declared Andrew Wickstrom, President of Henry Repeating Arms, during his speech. “He exemplifies courage and the highest level of devotion to his team and the world around him, which should stand as a model for all Americans. In honor of his service and dedication, I am privileged to present this symbol of our appreciation and unending respect – a rifle that embodies the always-reaching spirit of our workforce,” concluded Wickstrom before handing off the rifle as the crowd rose to its feet in reverence to General Brady.

Henry Repeating Arms is introducing a members-only rifle for Single Action Shooting Society® members and donating a portion of every sale back to SASS in support of its mission to promote Cowboy Action Shooting™.

RICE LAKE, Wis., May 1, 2024 – Henry is partnering with the Single Action Shooting Society® (SASS®) to offer its competitors an engraved rifle with a custom serial number matching their SASS member number. To continue the Single Action Shooting Society’s mission of preserving and promoting the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting™, Henry Repeating Arms is donating a portion of the proceeds from every sale to SASS.

Boasting over 100,000 members in all fifty states, SASS is the governing body for Cowboy Action Shooting matches conducted by more than 400 affiliated clubs wherein members are required to dress in period-correct late 19th-century apparel and compete in timed stages with lever action rifles, shotguns, and revolvers.

“As a longtime supporter of America’s shooting sports heritage and organizations like SASS that invite new enthusiasts into the fold with open arms, we are excited to further that support with this unique opportunity,” said Anthony Imperato, Founder and CEO of Henry Repeating Arms. “As evidenced by their matches, SASS members know how to have fun and do so safely. These competitors really are shining examples of what it means to be a part of the Second Amendment community.”

The rifle is an embellished version of Henry’s Big Boy Brass rifle chambered in .357 Magnum and .38 Special, which SASS approves for competition. The engraved hardened brass receiver takes center stage, adorned with period-correct scrollwork and SASS imagery, including the iconic cowboy logo on the left side. The genuine American walnut buttstock features a matching polished brass buttplate, while a brass barrel band securely fastens the walnut forearm to the 20” blued steel octagon barrel. The iron sights consist of a fully adjustable semi-buckhorn sight in the rear and a brass bead front sight. The removable tube magazine accommodates up to 10 rounds of .357 Magnum or .38 Special, and a side loading gate in the receiver enables quick top-offs.

RICE LAKE, Wis., Mar. 14, 2024 – Henry is honored to announce that a matching Big Boy Revolver and Big Boy Rifle pair was selected as the 2024 Friends of NRA Gun of the Year. The set’s inclusion as the flagship of this year’s fundraising package marks the first time Henry Repeating Arms has offered a two-gun rifle and revolver set to the public, and it’s only available at in-person Friends of NRA events.

Friends of NRA is a 100% volunteer-driven fundraising organization benefiting The NRA Foundation, whose funding supports programs and activities that promote safe and responsible firearms ownership.

First introduced at the 2023 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Indianapolis, IN, the Henry Big Boy Revolver is the perfect companion to the Henry Big Boy Rifle, chambered in the same caliber and built with the same premium materials. For example, the same polished hardened brass used for the Big Boy Rifle’s receiver is also found in the trigger guard and grip frame of the revolver, and the same polished blued steel of the rifle’s barrel makes up the frame, cylinder and barrel of the revolver. Setting these firearms apart from Henry’s standard catalog offerings are the engraved embellishments, like the Friends of NRA engraving on the genuine American walnut buttstock of the rifle, the gold-plated band around the revolver’s cylinder, and the exclusive, black-stained gunfighter-style grips also engraved with the Friends of NRA logo. Not available separately, the pair have matching, mirrored serial numbers. Only 750 sets are available nationwide.

“As a longtime supporter of the Friends of NRA and their grassroots efforts to preserve America’s hunting and shooting sports heritage, I am excited that their event attendees will be the first and only group that has a chance to bring home an official matched rifle and revolver set this year,” said Anthony Imperato, CEO and Founder of Henry Repeating Arms. “I urge everyone to look up the events in their area because you have to see this set in person.”

RICE LAKE, Wis., Feb. 15, 2024 – Henry is proud to introduce a collection of officially licensed U.S. Border Patrol 100th Anniversary Tribute Edition rifles in partnership with the Border Patrol Museum and Memorial Library Foundation in El Paso, Texas, to celebrate the agents and employees who have stood at the forefront of America’s security since its establishment by Congress in 1924. The U.S. Border Patrol enters its centennial year amidst an ongoing national security border crisis as unprecedented numbers of migrants continue to flood America’s southwest border.

The rifles are now available to eligible customers at discounted factory-direct pricing, ensuring those who have served can obtain this symbol of their dedication and their agency’s enduring heritage. Purchases are limited to verified active-duty, retired, and former Border Patrol agents and current Customs and Border Protection employees.

“We are honored to continue serving those who serve us by doing what we know how to do best, which is manufacturing firearms,” expressed Anthony Imperato, Founder and CEO of Henry Repeating Arms. “These special Henry rifles are a token of our unwavering respect for the brave men and women who deserve our support now more than ever. It’s a challenging, dangerous job, and my hat’s off to all those who have worn the badge.”

Four unique U.S. Border Patrol 100th Anniversary Tribute Edition rifles are available. Two are built on Henry’s award-winning Golden Boy .22 S/L/LR platform, and the other two are built on its larger sibling, the Big Boy Brass .357 Magnum/.38 Special as a nod to the caliber once widely used in the revolvers carried by Border Patrol agents. Each platform provides the choice of two designs. One version shows the Department of Justice-issued badge used before the agency’s restructuring in 2003, and the other features the badge issued today by Customs and Border Protection under the Department of Homeland Security. All of the rifles feature the new U.S. Border Patrol 100th anniversary commemorative badge, intricate scrollwork engraving, an engraved brick border motif around the edges of the receiver, and genuine American walnut stocks with the U.S. Border Patrol emblem engraved on the right side of the buttstock.

In the last couple of years, Henry Repeating Arms has donated over $225,000 to organizations involved with law enforcement professionals, especially those providing support to the families and children of officers fallen or injured in the line of duty, including $25,000 to the Border Patrol Foundation. To further protect the legacy and history of the U.S. Border Patrol, Henry Repeating Arms is donating a portion of the proceeds from each firearm sold to The Border Patrol Museum and Memorial Library Foundation, which receives no federal funding and relies solely on donations to sustain operations.

NEW YORK, N.Y., Oct. 26, 2023 – During a National First Responders Day ceremony in Times Square, Anthony Imperato, Founder and CEO of Henry Repeating Arms, showed his company’s continued support for families of first responders with a $25,000 donation to the First Responders Children’s Foundation. This follows a $50,000 donation made in December 2022 as part of the firearm manufacturer’s Guns for Great Causes charitable program, which raised over $1 million last year for a variety of organizations in celebration of the company’s twenty-fifth anniversary.

The First Responders Children’s Foundation was founded in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks when 800 children lost a first responder parent in the line of duty. Today, the nationally acclaimed organization provides financial and community support to the children and families of fallen first responders.

“Our mission with Guns for Great Causes and the mission of the First Responders Children’s Foundation go hand-in-hand, and it’s all about the kids,” said Imperato. “These children have parents that dedicate their lives to saving others day in and day out. Not coming home at the end of a shift is unimaginable, especially from the child’s point of view, and I am grateful to be able to lend our continued support to this organization that leads the way in helping to heal those wounds.”

Henry Repeating Arms’ donation is made in recognition of National First Responders Day, which is celebrated every year on October 28th, and the professionals committed to protecting communities all over America with selfless compassion for the lives they serve.

Team Kaia

RICE LAKE, Wis, Sept. 28, 2023 – Henry is proud to announce its latest Guns for Great Causes campaign with the donation of fifty limited-edition “Team Kaia” rifles. The rifles are available online, and all proceeds will be presented to the family of 8-year-old Kaia Lauro to provide direct financial relief for mounting medical expenses.

Kaia was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma in 2019, a rare childhood cancer that formed in her adrenal gland and later spread to her bone and bone marrow. Treatment started immediately following her diagnosis with a grueling 8-hour surgery. Since diagnosis, Kaia has undergone countless chemotherapy treatments, painful immunotherapy sessions, Metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) radiation, focused radiation, stem cell infusions, and blood transfusions.

Mariann Tepedino, a friend of the Lauro family and advocate for Kaia, brought the child’s story to the attention of Anthony Imperato, Founder & CEO of Henry Repeating Arms, who immediately got the campaign in motion.

“Time and time again, I find myself humbled by the unwavering generosity and support from the firearms community for a total stranger whenever we unveil a new Guns for Great Causes campaign, and I am confident that this will be no exception,” said Imperato. “More humbling though is the tenacity and courage with which Kaia forges on with her friends and family at her back and a smile on her face.”

Team Kaia rifle

The Henry “Team Kaia” rifle features a unique brushed metal finish on the receiver cover and barrel band, genuine American walnut stocks, a large loop lever, a 17” blued steel octagon barrel, fully adjustable sights, and a magazine tube with capacity for 12 rounds of .22 LR or 16 rounds of .22 Short. Exclusive to this rifle is the highly detailed, whimsical design on the buttstock, which is laser engraved and painted by hand in full color. The design features the pony that Kaia frequents for rides at a local farm, a tiara of flowers as a nod to her love of fictional princesses, and a gold awareness ribbon, symbolizing hope for pediatric cancer. The words “Never Ever Give Up” are engraved along the flowers. Baron Engraving of Trumbull, Connecticut, donated the artwork, engraving, and hand-painted embellishments.

To purchase the “Team Kaia” rifle, visit henryusa.com/teamkaia. The first and last rifles in the series are up for auction to enhance fundraising efforts. The auctions close on October 11th at 9:00 PM Eastern.
