Benjamin T. Henry developed his lever-action repeating rifle just before the start of the Civil War in 1860. Oliver Winchester acquired Henry’s original design which inspired the famous Winchester Model 1866.
Now it’s your turn to take home a piece of history. The Sheridan County Historical Society & Museum is raffling off a Commemorative .22 caliber Henry Golden-boy Rifle from Historical Armory, Incorporated.

This rifle has custom Sheridan County artwork and engraving on the stock and receiver. Historical Armory has only produced twenty-five Sheridan County Commemorative Golden-boy Rifles. You have the chance of winning #2 of 25. Drop by Rocky Mountain Sporting Goods in Sheridan to see the rifle in person.
