During the 19th century, Old World artisans skilled in engraving elevated firearms from simple tools of survival to cherished art forms presented to dignitaries and sought after by collectors. One of the most famous representatives of this marriage of gunsmithing and fine art is the custom engraved, gold and rosewood Henry rifle presented to President Abraham Lincoln; it is now on display in the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History. Today, Henry is proud to continue the tradition of transforming rifles into works of art worthy of display with our Golden Boy Deluxe.
An authentic Henry Golden Boy is a firearm any gun aficionado would be proud to display. But, add to it engraving inspired by the elaborate floral scroll works of acclaimed 19th century New York engraver Louis D. Nimschke, and you have a museum-quality heirloom that will be the pride of any recipient or firearm collector.
Each rifle in this limited-edition series is adorned with a classic Golden Boy receiver festooned with intricate, deeply etched elegant patterns that tastefully complement the rich grain and natural highlights of the select American walnut stock and forearm. Each will bear a special serial number from 1 to 1000.
For more than a century, it has been an American tradition to bestow ornate rifles such as these on political and military leaders. You can continue that heritage by purchasing a Golden Boy Deluxe as an unforgettable gift for someone special in your life. It's sure to be a treasure that any gun enthusiast will be proud to display and pass on to his children and grandchildren.
