Alabama Celebrates its Bicentennial
On December 14th, 1819, Alabama became the 22nd state to be admitted to the Union. This year marks the Bicentennial. In those 200 years, the Heart of Dixie has become home to Southern Hospitality and a culture that can’t be found anywhere else. This exclusive heirloom represents Alabama’s heart and soul.
This Henry 45-70 Lever Action rifle is 100% American made. Henry’s motto is “Made in America, or Not Made At All” and all of the engraving work done in Rapid City, South Dakota. Represented on the firearm are key icons and symbols that bolsters the spirit of Alabama. From the Rocket Center that can be found in the Northern part of the state to the USS Alabama sitting in the Southern tip, various industries and achievements make up this great state. The Bicentennial milestone will only ever happen once and this edition will be limited to only 67 rifles. 67 was chosen because that is how many counties there are in Alabama.
In order to truly celebrate Alabama’s heritage, Wellington LTD has pledged a donation for every Alabama firearm sold to Still Serving Veterans. Still Serving Veterans is a non-profit group based out of Huntsville, Alabama, that helps American veterans re-enter the workspace after they’ve completed their service. They have helped over 67,000 veterans since 2006 and each sale will directly give back to this unique Alabama organization.
Henry 45-70 Lever Action Rifle
This American made rifle is one of the finest lever actions on the market. With a 22″ octagon barrel and a large loop lever, this rifle has a classic Western look. Chambered in the 45-70 caliber, this rifle will only add to your collection.
Only 67 Rifles Made
Each rifle will have its very own edition number engraved on the top of the butt plate. There are only 67 counties in Alabama which means there is only 1 for every county in the state. This is done to produce less than the demand to keep the edition exclusive and valuable.
24 Karat Gold
The rifle is plated with 24 Karat Gold which is one of the world’s finest precious metals. It adds a high value to your firearm and highlights the iconic images that Alabama is known for.
Donating Back To Alabama
Wellington LTD is proud to partner with Still Serving Veterans on this project. This non-profit organization helps veterans and their families transition back into the work force. Still Serving Veterans is headquartered in Huntsville, AL and will receive a portion of each sale to support their cause.
The Alabama Bicentennial Rifle is a true collectible firearm. It captures the achievements and history of the state over the last 200 years. These type of firearms are the ones you can hand down in your family to carry on the values you care about most.
Great gift for retirement, grandchildren, graduations, milestones, firearm collectors or simply the person who already has everything else.
