In celebration of the 10th Anniversary of Venturing, Henry Repeating Arms Company, an Official Licensee of the Boy Scouts of America is pleased to present three Special Edition Commemorative Venturing Rifles. These rifles are produced in limited production runs to commemorate a decade of growth, adventure and service by the Venturing program and to honor its code to treasure, preserve and enrich our American heritage.
Henry Repeating Arms is proud that American craftsmen manufacture all our rifles in the United States. Our products are well known for their reliability, accuracy, value and having the smoothest engineered actions in the industry. Henry rifles are a historic piece of America, and are proud to build onto our rich histor y with the Boy Scouts of America, another organization steeped in American heritage.
President Lincoln, who was presented his commemorative Henry rifle nearly 145 years ago, would emphatically endorse today's Venturing Oath, “As a Venturer, I promise to do my duty to God and help strengthen America, to help others, and to seek truth, fairness and adventure in our world.” This pledge is one that is worth celebrating, even more so knowing that hundreds of thousands of young adults have taken these words to heart. Henry salutes these young adults and their adult leaders on their quest to make life a fun yet worthwhile and purposeful adventure.
The three Special Edition Commemorative Venturing Rifles include a .22 caliber Golden Boy rifle, a Henry Lever Action .22 rifle, and a .44 caliber Big Boy rifle. These rifles are embellished using techniques which combine today's proprietary technologies and handcrafted methods used for centuries by armor engravers.
The Golden Boy .22 is laser etched with a specially designed 10th Anniversary Venturing logo on the rifle stock. After engraving, artisans individually hand paint the stock using multiple acrylic shades to match the colors and symbolism of the Venturing program.
The Lever Action .22 is offered with the specially designed 10th Anniversary Venturing logo and embellished with 24 kt. gold plating on the right side of the dark receiver, a true mark of distinction. The Big Boy Rifle with octagon barrels have the specially designed 10th Anniversary Venturing logo, and includes the designation “Founders Limited Edition” as part of the engraving. The Big Boy edition has the special logo laser etched into the right side of the American Walnut stock which is then black filled and lacquered to further enhance the detail.
Each 10th Anniversary Rifle deserves special display in your home or office, or can be given in recognition to a special Venturer. Either way, each rifle will surely be passed on as an heirloom to future generations who exemplify the ideals of the Venturing program.
