Celebrating 175 Years of Appomattox County
Appomattox County, Virginia was founded in 1845 and would become home to one of our nation’s most historic events. On April 9th, 1865, at the Appomattox Court House, General Lee would declare his surrender ending 4 bloody years of Civil War. This event would go on to reunite our country. Located in central Virginia, the county has become an attraction to tourist worldwide. With its historical value and beautiful location, it is easy to understand why so many are proud to call it home. 2020 marks Appomattox County’s 175th Anniversary and we are proud to celebrate this milestone.
Henry Repeating Arms
Henry’s motto is “Made in America or Not Made at All”. This is why we chose the Henry rifle. You cannot showcase American history on anything but an American firearm. The rifle is chambered in the .45-70 and comes with an octagon barrel. This classic Western look is a great addition to your collection.
Limited to only 12 rifles.
Each rifle will receive its very own edition number which will be engraved in the metal on top of the receiver. With such a small number of rifles made for this county edition, the firearm will remain unique and rare. This will make this an heirloom that can be handed down to future generations.
Master Engraver Quality
With over 40 years of experience in the firearm engraving business, our engraver is one of America’s best. Based out of Rapid City, SD, eac h firearm is carefully engraved by a team that knows its trait. Each firearm can take between 10 to 12 weeks to engrave while the artwork design at the beginning take many more. It is a rare find these days to find a product with such attention to detail. Quality is valued instead of quantity.
Selective Plating Metal Work
While other engravers simply plate a thin layer and cut into the layer once, we take the time to plate layers to produce a unique and quality image. The receiver and buttplate are plated 5 different times to create a raised and almost 3 dimensional image. This ensures that the images/details do not wear and blur over time. Utilizing 24 Karat Gold, Nickel and Black Chrome, these engravings are created to withstand the test of time.
Since we take our time to produce each rifle with attention to detail, this allows you to turn the price into a budget friendly payment. You can make a deposit and pay off the balance once it is complete, or simply break it into 6 monthly payments; either way you can own this heirloom item without financial duress.
Supporting the Greater Good
It is our company’s mission to support organizations that go above and beyond for others. This is why we offer special programs for non-profit groups that can turn this rifle into one of their most successful fundraising items. From auctions to raffle tickets, engraved firearms repeatedly produce the highest returns at fundraising events.
