Unlike Glock or other manufacturers, Henry Repeating Arms does not make firearms specifically for law enforcement. It does make decorative, yet functional, pieces that pay tribute to various services performed in the United States, including military and law enforcement.

The Law Enforcement Tribute Edition Rifle is a Henry Golden Boy containing embellished elements to honor law enforcement officers. It makes a great gift for a retiring officer or one who went beyond the call of duty. Here are the attributes of this tribute edition.

The Golden Boy
takes its inspiration from the Old West with a 20-inch blued octagonal barrel, American walnut stock, brass buttplate and Brasslite receiver. It is based on the original Henry lever action rifle designed by Benjamin Tyler Henry.

The Golden Boy Law Enforcement Tribute Edition takes styling one step further with 24K gold-plate engraving and scrollwork. A "God Bless America's Finest" badge is laser etched and hand painted on the walnut stock. The right side of the receiver displays a law enforcement badge among the scrolling with the inscription, "In tribute to those in the line of duty," and the left side displays the patron saint of police, St. Michael the Archangel.

The Law Enforcement Tribute edition has the same specifications as the Golden Boy .22 rifle. It is a lever action that takes .22 S/L/LR caliber. The capacity is 16 rounds of .22 long rifle or 21 rounds .22 short. It is 38.5 inches long with a 20-inch barrel and weighs 6.75 pounds. The website lists the MSRP as $1,020, but it notes that local dealers may charge a different price.

The decorative firearm was reviewed on Officer.com by Frank Borelli. After an inspection, he was impressed by the craftsmanship and beauty. He was also noted that it did not just honor police officers, but also sheriffs (with an etched star) and receivers (inverted teardrop/oval badge with a five-point star within it). There were no manufacturing flaws in the appearance.

All parts from the shoulder stock to the receiver fit well and the brass added to appearance and durability. Borrelli stated that his only disappointment was that it is a .22 caliber, but if it took a .38 Special or .357 Magnum, he might actually shoot it (which defeats the purpose of keeping it attractive for display). Overall though, he called it "an exceptional tribute."

While it is not stated outright, it appears that these firearms are not necessarily available in the inventory of a local dealer. Henry indicates that it is best to contact dealers for price and availability.
