2019 will mark the 100th anniversary of the Cody Stampede Rodeo, one of America’s longest running successful professional rodeos, and Henry Repeating Arms is tipping its hat to the centennial celebration with an exclusive 100th Anniversary Cody Stampede Rodeo lever action rifle in the iconic caliber of .45 Colt.


The rifles are available for sale to the public and all proceeds are applied to the celebration and preservation of the history of Cody, Wyo., as the “Rodeo Capital of the World.”

Baron Engraving of Trumbull, Conn., embellished the rifles with highly detailed scrollwork engraving on the bright silver receivers which is surrounded with a 24K gold-filled lasso motif. The top of the receiver is engraved with the words, “1919 | Cody Stampede Centennial | 2019.” The rifles are built on Henry’s Big Boy Silver platform featuring a blued steel octagonal barrel, fully adjustable semi-buckhorn sights and a brass bead front sight, and fancy-grade American walnut stocks.


“Cody, Wyoming is one of those places in this country that just oozes American history and a distinct Old West frontier vibe, and it’s a pleasure to celebrate that history with them,” said Anthony Imperato, Henry president and owner. “We really appreciate the great folks at the Cody Stampede Rodeo choosing our rifles for their centennial anniversary, and hopefully they will go a long way to preserving this important American heritage for another 100 years.”

The series of 50 rifles will be available for sale to the public for $1,919 through the Cody Stampede office and Rocky Mountain Discount Sports of Cody, Wyo. All sales inquiries and requests for further information should be directed to [email protected] or the Cody Stampede Board Office at PO Box 1327, Cody, WY 82414, (307) 587-5155.
