It takes a man of courage to descend into the shaft each day, and a woman of courage to marry a miner knowing the risk her husband faces. The American coal miner continues to uphold a tradition of bravery, determination and resilience that is their legacy. In recognition of their vital role in keeping our nation powered, Henry is pleased to present the American Coal Miner 2nd Tribute Edition.
Fueled by the Industrial Revolution, coal mining began in Pennsylvania in the mid-1700’s. Although it has become safer and easier throughout the years it’s still full of challenges. From energy policy to environmental concerns, modern mining personnel must be highly skilled in computers, complex instruments, and equipment. It’s because of these advances that coal went on to become a driving force in the world’s economy leading some to consider it the safest and most economical fuel source of all time.
The original art on this rifle is hand-cut by engraver Rob Bunting with foliage inspired scrolls on the nickel plated receiver cover. An outline of the United States of America and the unwavering declaration AMERICA IS COAL COUNTRY is laser etched and hand painted onto the American walnut stock.
This special Coal Miner 2nd Tribute Edition is a symbol of American pride; to honor the brave, hard working men who bring coal to the surface.
