Limited Edition Henry “One of Twenty” Rifle Auction to Support Mule Deer Foundation
Salt Lake City, UT: Henry Repeating Arms has donated one of 20 Big Boy .44 magnum special edition lever action rifles to the Mule Deer Foundation to support its conservation and shooting sports outreach mission. This is a limited edition rifle designed to celebrate Henry’s 20 years of building its high -quality rifles only in the United States of America. The rifle is up for auction on Gunbroker.com through December 23 and all proceeds will support MDF’s mission.
“We greatly appreciate this generous donation in support of MDF and our mission and thank Henry Repeating Rifles, and its president and owner Anthony Imperato, for all they do for the shooting, hunting and outdoor industry,” commented Brian Fienhold, MDF’s chief operating officer. “Henry has been producing fine quality firearms here in the United States for 20 years and this unique rifle is no different. It is #12 out of only 20 being produced and will be a valuable collector’s item for the discerning gun buyer.”
Henry Repeating Rifles is celebrating its 20th anniversary by creating these 20 rifles to benefit organizations that work in support of America’s hunting and shooting sports traditions. The Big Boy .44 magnum lever action rifle features hand engraving, a AAA-grade American walnut stock, and a walnut display case. The company stands by its “Made in America or Not Made at All” motto which is prominently engraved on the right side of the receiver. The gun will come with a certificate of authenticity with the gun’s 20HENRY12 serial number and noting that it was donated to the Mule Deer Foundation to raise funds in support of America’s hunting and shooting sports heritage.
Supporting the shooting sports has always been at the core of Henry Repeating Arms’ DNA, so Anthony Imperato, President and owner of Henry Repeating Arms felt it would be fitting to continue that tradition as the company marks its 20th anniversary. Henry has partnered with the Hunting Heritage Trust to auction the “One of Twenty” Anniversary Edition Big Boy .44 Magnum rifles with 100% of the proceeds going to non-profit organizations working to support hunting, shooting and wildlife conservation in America. Collectors estimate the “One of Twenty” guns will raise more than $100,000 for the organizations that received the donations.
“Over the past two decades, I’ve come to realize that it’s our customers that make Henry the brand it is today,” said Imperato “Henry is a brand that represents many different things for customers from all walks of life. It’s their stories, their passion for Henry and shooting sports that continue to push us to be the best possible firearms manufacturer we can be.”
