The “Lincoln” Henry Repeating Rifle
The Henry Repeating Rifle presented to Abraham Lincoln is one of the most important, famous, and valuable rifles in the world. Not only did it belong to one of America’s greatest presidents, but it is one of the few presentation-grade Henrys ever created. The original is a priceless, national treasure in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.
Introduced during the Civil War, the classic repeating rife forever changed battlefield tactics from the days of single shot rifles. The American Historical Foundation is proud to present this firing Limited Edition of Abraham Lincoln’s Repeating Rifle.
Hand Engraved; 24-Karat Gold
This museum-quality issue features full coverage of elaborate hand engraving across both sides of the receiver and across the buttplate. All hand engraving is done in the USA by some of the finest firearms engravers available today. The entire frame and buttplate are plated with 24-Karat Gold, a dramatic contrast to the hand-finished, high gloss stock and blued 24 1/4 inch barrel and magazine tube.
Like Lincoln’s original Henry, this rifle features the rare, early, rounded buttplate and the sporting-type adjustable rear sight, mounted in the frame position. But this is more than just a showpiece; each is a firing rifle chambered for readily available .44-40 cartridge ammunition, assuring it will become the centerpiece of even the finest arms collection.
Limited Edition of Only 250
Due to the time required to hand engrave each rifle, the edition limit is restricted to only 250. Each is numbered between 1 and 250 with the special prefix “AL” for Abraham Lincoln. A Certificate of Authenticity accompanies each Henry Rifle, attesting to the registry number, the edition limit, and the purity of the precious metal.
To hand build each rifle, the Foundation selected a leading expert on historical recreations, A. Uberti. For more than five decades, their master craftsmen have produced reproductions of Classic American firearms.
