Description

Gain priceless experience by adding hand engraving to an actual Henry .22 lever-action receiver cover. Guided by FEGA Master Engraver Rex Pedersen, students learn the process of engraving a firearm part without purchasing the gun first. The cover features a laser-marked period design reminiscent of turn-of-the-century lever-action rifles and, once engraved, can be installed on any Henry .22 lever-action rifle.
