Davidson’s, one of the nation’s top firearms, optics, and accessories wholesalers, has partnered with Henry Repeating Arms, Baron Engraving, and the Cody Firearms Museum to bring a stunning New Original Henry in 44-40 Winchester to market as a Davidson’s Exclusive. This Cody Museum Collectors Series rifle is limited to 300 units and each comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. This very limited edition Cody Firearms Museum New Original Henry in .44-40 (H011CFM) carries an MSRP of $4150.
The 3rd Edition Cody Firearms Museum Collectors Series Henry New Original Rifle is a highly engraved Henry faithfully recreated in the style of one of America’s most famous 19th Century firearm engravers, Louis Daniel Nimschke. Nimschke, unlike other engravers of his time, did not work directly for a firearm manufacturer but commissioned work from his New York City studio. Nimschke’s style features a combination of bold American scroll coupled with fine European detailing.
To produce this special rifle, Baron Engraving combined the latest in etching technology with the old-world craftsmanship of hand engraving. The brass receiver features 90% coverage, a nickel finish which is complemented by polished screws and a highly figured walnut stock with nickel-plated furniture.
The New Original Henry is true to Benjamin Tyler Henry’s 1860 patterns and patents and is virtually identical, aside from concessions necessary to adapt to the .44-40 centerfire round that replaced the long-obsolete rimfires. This rifle uses a specially-formulated hardened brass receiver with the same tensile strength as steel and is fitted with a one-piece octagonal barrel and magazine, fancy-grade American walnut stock, a classic folding ladder rear sight and blade front, traditional half-cock safety hammer notch, and no modernized manual safety.
“Obviously, we are thrilled to be a part of this project and bring our third edition Davidson’s Exclusive collectors series to market,” said Kane Cannedy, VP of purchasing for Davidson’s. A portion of the sale of this limited production run will be donated to the museum by Davidson’s.
This Collectors Series 3rd Edition carries a special serial number range of 2021CFM001 through 2021CFM300.
Said Anthony Imperato, CEO and founder of Henry Repeating Arms, “It is our privilege to help support the Cody Firearms Museum with this rifle so that they can continue preserving America’s rich firearms history for many more generations to come.”
