For those who would like the laser-engraved pictures, but do not want the gun, there will also be 150 limited edition laser-engraved 14" x 21" wood plaques, featuring the same old-time Cherokee photos. The plaques will be sold for an estimated $95 -$99 apiece.
The Henry repeating rifle was first manufactured in the 1860s, and is considered a "classic" by rifle enthusiasts. It was the forerunner of the Winchesteer repeating rifle.
