An Exciting Collaboration with Henry Repeating Arms,
Made Even Better by Teaming Up with NSSF and Top Shot Armory

(UPDATE: The family of limited edition Henry-Turnbull rifles is now available on the Top Shot Armory website.)

We’re proud and excited to collaborate with Henry Repeating Arms, one of the most revered names in American firearms manufacturing. Together we’ve created a special series of popular Henry large-bore rifles, which are finished with Turnbull Restoration’s bone charcoal color case hardening. And to kick everything off, seven new “Henry-Turnbull President’s Collection” rifles will be featured as 2019 SHOT Show auction rifles.

For the 2019 SHOT Show rifle auction, Henry and Turnbull have set aside Serial # 1 of each of the calibers offered in the new series. We’ve engraved each with a special “President’s Collection” insignia. Serial numbers on the “President’s Collection” rifles are THR44001, THR45001, THR357001, THR327001, THR41001, THR3030001 and THR4570001.

Together with NSSF (National Shooting Sports Foundation, the organizer and promoter of SHOT Show), we considered whether the seven rifles should be auctioned as a package or individually. Ultimately, the decision was made to auction the guns individually so as not to force a collector to purchase all seven guns when he or she might specialize in collecting only one caliber. So, seven individual “President’s Collection” rifles will be auctioned on from approximately Dec 22, 2018 until 5:00 PM eastern time, Friday, January 25, 2019.

Fun Fact: Henry and Turnbull Restoration top the list of SHOT Show auction bid leaders. Between our two companies, we’ve created four special SHOT Show auction guns generating total high bids exceeding $275,000.00. In 2013, a color case hardened Turnbull TAR-10 with Serial # TAR-000001 set the SHOT Show auction record with a high bid of $136,024.00. In 2018, the One Millionth Henry H001 with serial #1000000H brought a high bid $55,025.

To add to our excitement around this collaboration, the seven calibers (non-engraved) are being produced in a limited edition of 250 rifles each. These will be available after SHOT Show exclusively through Top Shot Armory. Bookmark their website to be among the first to know when they become available for purchase. UPDATE: The family of limited edition Henry-Turnbull rifles is now available on the Top Shot Armory website.

These one-of-a-kind MADE IN AMERICA Henry firearms feature bone charcoal (as in authentic, period-correct) color case hardened steel receivers, the legendary smooth Henry lever action, 20” round barrel and 10-round capacity. Each rifle features select walnut stock with checkered grip. They’re new-in-box, and include brochures and factory warranty. There are five Henry Big Boy editions including .44 Magnum, .45Colt, .357 Magnum, .327 FED Magnum, and .41 Magnum. Rounding out the series of seven are the classic Henry .30-30 and .45-70.

We’ll be sure to update you on availability through our various channels, including our newsletter and our social media pages (Facebook | Instagram | Twitter). Be sure to follow our friends at Top Shot Armory as well (Facebook | Twitter).

    Great news! I have been wanting a pistol caliber lever action with class and anxiously await the availability of these!

    • Sara Turnbull

      Excellent! We’ll be posting on social media and in our newsletter when they’re available.

    What no loading gate? Now thats unamerican.

    • Sara Turnbull

      You’ll have to take that complaint up with Henry! Yep, these ones are loaded in the magazine tube.

      • Jeffrey K Sopczak

        I’m trying to understand the major difference between the Turnbull edition Henry and the Henry case hardened edition that now has a side gate? Turnbull is 17 and some change and the Henry is 1000 and some change?

        • Sara Turnbull

          Sure, so the rifles that Henry offers color case hardened through their website are not done in the traditional bone-and-wood charcoal method. The premium price is due to the fact that we’ve added this historically-accurate finish, rather than the modern reproduction they utilize.

  3. Lou Puleff

    Hello is the .41 mag available in a octogan barrel version ?

    • Sara Turnbull

      Hi Lou, thanks for your inquiry. We’re only offering this rifle with a round barrel. If you have any additional questions feel free to email us: Thank you!

  4. Brian Spradling

    Does Turnbull Restoration plan on exhibiting at the Safari Club Int. Convention in Reno this coming February?

    • Sara Turnbull

      Hi Brian,
      No, we won’t be exhibiting at SCI, but we will be participating in the American Custom Gunmakers’ Guild section of Dallas Safari Club.
