The first of the Big Boy auction guns, serialized 20Henry01, recently cleared over $25,000 with proceeds headed towards the Hunting Heritage Trust. The organization is directed at preserving hunting and shooting sports.
“I am beyond pleased that serial #1 was able to raise over $25,000 at auction. There was a bit of a bidding war at the end, and we’d like to congratulate and thank the winner for choosing to own such a special rifle,” Anthony Imperato, President of Henry Repeating Arms, said in a press release. “I think it surpassed everyone’s expectations, and it’s a good sign for what’s to come with the other 19 rifles in the series.”
