Whether it's marrying hydraulic fracturing with horizontal drilling, tapping into vast new oil supplies in onshore shale fields, or finding deepwater drilling efficiencies, the American Oilman continues a tradition of exploration and technological development that lessens our dependence on foreign oil and reduces our footprint in the field. To honor this legacy, Henry Repeating Arms has created the American Oilman Tribute Edition.
On the right side of the front of the solid hardened brass receiver, there's a one-of-a-kind drawing of a pump jack, the modern and ever-present workhorse of the onshore oil fields. A rig is stunningly engraved in a masculine antique black fill on the rear. The checkerboard patterned border with an open American style scroll is a nod to the country's heritage. On the left side, the front panel displays the mighty image of the derrick towers standing like sentinels in tribute to oilman past and present. On the rear panel, two roughnecks tripping pipe complement the banner text "The American Oilman."
Additional features include: a straight-grip American walnut stock, a fully-adjustable semi-buckhorn rear with an adjustable white diamond insert, a brass beaded front sight. and a hardened brass buttplate and barrel band. The custom serial range starts with OIL00001.
