Americans dial 911 and ask for assistance at the most traumatic of times. In medical crises, the first professionals to respond from dispatch are those of our communities’ Emergency Medical Services system. In recognition and thanks for their immediate and skilled commitment to our medical care, Henry is pleased to produce The EMS tribute Edition Golden Boy Rifle.
The Henry Repeating Rifle was chosen for several reasons. All Henry Rifles are authentically produced, assembled and engraved in The United States by American craftsmen. The Henry Rifle is known for its reliability, accuracy and value as well as having the smoothest engineered actions in the land. The Henry Rifle is an historic piece of Americana.
The EMS Tribute Rifle honors all of those in the system who help to preserve life, prevent further injury, and promote recovery. In visual salute to this vital and selfless role, the American Walnut wooden stock is laser etched and hand painted with various iconic images including a medevac helicopter hovering above the rhythmic horizon, an EMS ambulance used to facilitate patient care, and a depiction of a paramedic and an emergency medical technician after attending to a person’s medical needs. On the wood forearm is the universally recognized EMS blue Star of Life emblem with the Rod of Aesculapius. Included is a guiding principal in text SO OTHERS MAY LIVE underscored by a graphic sinus rhythm.
These images, text and scroll on both sides of the receiver have been cut by hand engraver Heidi Roos on a master plate and through a mechanical transfer the scroll is impressed directly onto the nickel plated receiver cover retaining all of the hand engraved elements and bright cuts of the original. Specific elements are then plated with 24 kt. gold.
This special Tribute Rifle honors our nation’s Emergency Medical Service heroes who provide essential life support to anyone in need 24 hours a day 365 days a year.
