Together with Baron Engraving and Davidson’s Inc., Henry Repeating Arms has announced the auction of the first gun in the third edition of the Cody Firearms Museum Collectors Series, a New Original Henry Rifle inspired by 19th-century master firearms engraver Louis D. Nimschke. The auction will be taking place at The Cody Firearms Museum. The museum, located at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, about 50 miles outside Yellowstone National Park, hosts a collection of over 4,000 guns and offers opportunities to purchase limited-edition firearms inspired by pieces in the museum.

For those attending the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Houston, Texas, the rifle will be displayed in Henry Repeating Arms’ booth with a custom heavyweight, hand-tooled leather scabbard included in the auction.

Baron’s master hand engraver Robert Bunting was responsible for adorning the brass receiver with Nimschke’s signature American scrollwork combined with fine European detailing. In addition, the receiver was polished, silver-plated, fitted with complementing blued screws and an exhibition grade American Walnut stock capped with a hand-engraved, silver-plated crescent. The New Original Henry Rifle features a blued one-piece octagonal barrel and magazine, a classic folding ladder rear sight and a blade front sight. The rifle is chambered for .44-40 WCF with a 13-round capacity.
