‘Bound for Glory’: A trucker tribute rifle

Updated Aug 17, 2014

This .44 caliber tribute rifle will be featured in a drawing at GATS.

One great American tradition recognizes another.

Henry Repeating Arms is giving away a special trucking-themed rifle, which will be on display at the Great American Trucking Show (GATS) in Dallas Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

The $1,500 American Trucker Tribute Big Boy Rifle, will be given away after GATS. The .44-caliber Magnum Big Boy will be displayed at the Overdrive booth during the show. The contest is limited to GATS attendees.

“The Henry American Trucker Tribute rifle honors not only the driver, but all those along the roads who keep American commerce in motion,” says Anthony Imperato, president of Henry Repeating Arms, located in Bayonne, NJ. “Few other occupations in our country are more critical to the economy and well-being of its citizens than the truck driver.”

Engraved on the right side of the rifle’s receiver is a tractor-trailer, with a banner that reads “TRUCKERS MOVE AMERICA.” On the left side of the receiver is a convoy on a tree-lined highway, with the banner “BOUND FOR GLORY.”

Henry Repeating Arms is one of the top five long gun manufacturers in the United States. All Henry rifles are produced in the United States.
