It’s a state known the world over for its hard-fought legacy, charming spirit, and the distinct pride that comes along with being a Texan. And that’s not to mention the cowboy hats, boots, brisket, and football. Texas is at the heart and soul of what makes our country great and Henry is proud to offer the Texas Tribute Edition as homage to the great Lone Star State.
The inspiration for this rifle dates to a critical point in Texas history in 1901 with the eruption of the first gusher on Spindletop. This discovery of black gold (or Texas Tea) would change the course of Texas forever and revolutionize the progress of our country.
Never seen on a Henry rifle before it, the Texas Tribute Edition features a deep black stain on all the walnut furniture, which provides a stark contrast to the gold and brass highlights throughout the rest of the rifle. The wood is then studded on both sides with inlaid metal 5-pointed stars that perfectly match the “Lone Star Flag” motif that is found on the buttstock surrounded by the Texas state outline. The left side of the buttstock is a bit more subdued with a lone star inlaid towards the buttplate.
There’s no doubt that Texans love their guns. That’s why Henry pulled out all the stops to create a rifle as unique as the state that it represents.
Remember the Alamo and Don’t Mess with Texas.
