Henry Rifles Big Boy All Weather

The Henry Big Boy All-Weather won ‘The Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin’ contest with a total of 30,000 votes cast in the final round. The rifle is manufactured in Rice Lake, Wisconsin.

MILWAUKEE, WI – October 10, 2019 – Henry Repeating Arms and their Big Boy All-Weather lever action rifle won the ‘Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin’ competition organized by the Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) from a contestant pool of over 150 different products and companies. The Big Boy All-Weather, which is manufactured in Henry’s Rice Lake, Wisconsin facility, was nominated earlier this year in August and then went all the way through 4 rounds of popular votes. Over 30,000 votes were cast in the last round. The rifle, available in .44 Magnum, .357 Magnum and .45 Colt, is a popular choice for hunters that need a firearm that is less susceptible to harsh environmental conditions.

“It is incredible to see the diversity of products manufactured here in this state, and we are proud to call Wisconsin home.” said Dan Clayton-Luce, Communications Director of Henry Repeating Arms during Henry’s acceptance speech. Clayton-Luce continues, “We would like to thank all of the more than 500 Henry employees from both our Rice Lake, WI facility and Bayonne, NJ facility for being so dedicated to putting out a quality product every day.”

Henry’s 100,000+ sq. ft. Wisconsin manufacturing facility, managed by Henry Vice President and General Manager Andy Wickstrom, is responsible for about half of Henry’s entire product line, which encompasses over 200 different rifle and shotguns.

“This is a very exciting win for us,” says Henry Repeating Arms President and Owner, Anthony Imperato. “We take so much pride in Made in America and it’s clear that our fans and customers appreciate it just as much as we do. I would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote for us.”
