ince the earliest days of American colonization, through the inevitable expansion of the Frontier driven westward by explorers, adventurers, and settlers, and on to modern times, the rifle has played a key role in a part of life as old as mankind himself.
Hunting to survive made it possible for Daniel Boone to become a legendary figure in blazing his Wilderness Road through the Cumberland Gap across the Appalachians into Kentucky in 1775, Lewis & Clark to travel 8,000 miles largely on foot through unknown territories in 1804, for John Wesley Powell’s 1869 expedition mapping the Colorado River as the first white men to travel through the Grand Canyon, for the small homestead farmers of the great Oklahoma Land Rush of 1889 to establish and build on their claims, and for countless men to feed their families through the dark days of the Great Depression of the 1930s. Regardless of wealth or social status, hunting is an American tradition shared by all levels of society, and Henry Repeating Arms tips a hat to that tradition in these Wildlife editions in brass frames.
For today’s hunter who likes a campfire showpiece that still delivers in the woods, we offer two classic calibers in highly polished hardened brass frames- the .30-30 and the .45-70. The H009BWL carries five of the time-proven mid-bore .30-30 rounds under its 20” octagon barrel, while big-bore hunters tracking bigger game can step up to four of the hard-hitting .45-70 bulldozers in the H010BWL’s 22” octagon barrel.
Combine the .30-30 caliber with our famously smooth action, high-polished metalwork, American walnut furniture, fully adjustable buckhorn/bead sights, drilled and tapped frame top for an optional scope, and highly engraved frames featuring American vine scroll and braided borders surrounding the portrait of a stately buck’s head on the right side panel, with the same motif setting off a leaping buck on the left side, and you have a deer rifle that’ll turn heads anywhere.
Where more steam might be needed, the .45-70 undeniably provides it, and the engraving, black-filled to bring out detail as it is on both brass Wildlife models, reflects that with American vine scroll and braided border again; surrounding on the right side a detailed depiction of a moose head in a circular setting, and on the left, a bear in an oval outline. And, this model adds a larger lever loop for gloved use to the package.
Travel with style on your next hunt, and take us with you.
