Two American traditions unite in an impressive way with Scouting-themed rifles from Henry Repeating Arms.
Patented in 1860, Henry rifles were used in the Civil War. The Henry Repeating Arms Co. is still producing rifles with the quality, craftsmanship and accuracy of those history-making repeaters right here in America.
Henry has unveiled a collection of beautiful Scouting rifles that commemorate:
- 100 years of the Order the Arrow
- Eagle Scouts
- Philmont Scout Ranch
- 100 years of the Boy Scouts of America
- 100 years of the Eagle Scout award
All are impeccable works of art, but I have my eye on the new Salute to Scouting rifle (seen at right), just released last month.
It features extensive 19th-century-style engraving on both sides of its gleaming nickel-plated receiver cover. It builds on the Henry Golden Boy’s 20-inch octagonal barrel, walnut furniture and adjustable semi-buckhorn sights.
Elegant flourishes make it stand out. A 24-karat gold-plated BSA banner adorns the right hand of the receiver. A depiction of Norman Rockwell’s classic painting “I Will Do My Best,” including the Scout Oath, is laser-etched into the buttstock. On the forearm it reads “Duty to God and Country, Duty to Others, Duty to Self,” encapsulating the lifestyle of the Scouting values we hold dear.
Two Henry traditions set the company apart from competitors. For one, they offer a lifetime warranty that doesn’t require a law degree to understand. Henry corrects any problem immediately and at no charge to you. Second, Henry rifles are — and always will be — “Made in America, or Not Made at All.”
