Henry Repeating Arms recently announced the release of its newest rifle, the American Eagle. Moreover, the .22-caliber Henry American Eagle can digest .22 Short, .22 Long and .22 Long Rifle ammunition.
Henry American Eagle Features
Firstly, the Henry American Eagle pays tribute to America’s most enduring symbol, the American bald eagle. Additionally, the rifle features distinct engraving and plating work.
The look begins with the unique ivory-looking stock, a pale, bone-colored finish that is unlike other models in the Henry line. Moreover, that look is achieved through a complex process, where the American walnut receives several layers of primers in ivory color. Additionally, the stock is sanded between each application, highlighting the wood grain. Also, the stock if deeply engraved and checkered, according to Henry. Finally, the Henry logo, and American bald eagle head and leafy vine scrollwork complete the furniture treatment.
Then the receiver cover, buttplate and barrel band receive a mirror-like nickel plating, one that provides a stark contrast.
Because the lever-action rifle is built upon Henry’s popular Golden Boy platform, it earns instant credibility. Additionally, a 20-inch octagonal barrel, fully-adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sight and brass bead front sight provide familiar lever-action features.
Further, the American Eagle’s tubular magazine provides a 16-round capacity. Also, the rifle retails for $950.
Firstly, with its light 6 3/4-pound weight, the Gold Boy platform offers a classic design. Also, it makes this variant suitable for plinking, target shooting or hunting. Also, well-balanced and delivering Henry’s popular lever-action functioning, the new tribute rifle is likely to be a hit. Finally, few firearm designs offer more shooting fun than a lever-action .22.
