Henry Repeating Arms Announces American Rodeo Tribute Rifle

posted on December 17, 2018

Henry Repeating Arms has debuted the American Rodeo Tribute Edition lever-action rifle in Las Vegas, coinciding with the 2018 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, Cowboy Christmas, and the RMEF Hunter & Outdoor Christmas Expo. Together the imagery on the receiver cover and the stocks celebrate three staple rodeo events where contestants compete against the clock for fame and fortune.

The .22-cal. rifle is built on Henry’s award-winning Golden Boy platform for an inherently smooth action, a blued-steel octagonal barrel, American walnut stocks and fully adjustable sights. The receiver cover is nickel-plated, engraved and further embellished with 24K gold plating for added contrast.

The right side of the receiver cover features an engraved image of a cowboy in the midst of roping a calf from horseback. The left side displays the words, “Rodeo Tribute,” and a cowboy wrestling a steer to the ground. Both sides are bordered with 24K gold plated leafy-vine scroll patterns.

The walnut buttstock is capped with a nickel-plated buttplate and engraved with the image of a cowboy riding a bucking bull. The stock engraving is hand painted in full color to capture every detail. The fore stock of the rifle features a near full-coverage engraving with the phrase, “Cowboy Up.”

Henry Repeating Arms President and owner Anthony Imperato said this is Henry’s first year in Las Vegas for the rodeo. “ … The fans, the contestants, the atmosphere, and the sense of camaraderie amongst everyone is incredible,” he said. “We’ve been sitting on this design for the American Rodeo Tribute Edition for a few months, but we wanted to hold off on announcing it until we could show it in person to the biggest rodeo fans in the world.”
