The American Railroad Tribute Edition Golden Boy from Henry Repeating Arms is a grateful acknowledgement of the men who kept and keep the iron horse smoothly running. It's an outstanding American tribute to a vital American industry. This .22 caliber lever-action rifle appropriately wears imagery that commemorates the laying of the Golden Spike in 1869. The right receiver plate cover is polished nickel with period-style scrollwork surrounding a 24K gold-plated Jupiter engine behind a gold bannered "THE LAST RAIL IS LAID." The right forward panel carries a gold rendition of the Golden Spike next to another banner inscribed "THE LAST SPIKE IS DRIVEN." On the left side, a 24K gold-plated No. 119 thunders down the line, bracketed by three gold banners proclaiming "A CONTINENT HAS BEEN SPANNED WITH TWO THIN LINES OF STEEL." Cover details were hand cut by engraver Heidi Roos on a master plate and mechanically transferred to each gun. The walnut stock bears the celebrated Promontory ceremonial image, laser-etched and hand filled, above a "PROMONTORY, UTAH MAY 10, 1869" banner, and below the Morse Code letters "DONE." On the fore-end, "AMERICAN RAILROAD TRIBUTE" is printed with a stylized railroad track border. A fully-adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sight with a reversible white diamond insert and a brass beaded front sight make the American Railroad Tribute period authentic and immensely shootable should you decide to pull it off the wall and take it for a spin.
