Celebrating One of America’s Greatest Achievements
The Transcontinental Railroad
Signed into law by President Abraham Lincoln on July 1st, 1862, and completed in 1869, the approval and building of a “Transcontinental” railroad dramatically changed the future of our nation and brought us together through “two thin ribbons of steel”. Thousands of workers worked tirelessly to lay these tracks. The railroad carved tunnels into mountain and spanned bridges across rivers. This achievement is a true reflection of the American spirit.
In celebration of this signature event, Wellington LTD is proud to present The Transcontinental Railroad 150th Anniversary Special Edition. Built on a collector’s grade Henry .45 LC. caliber rifle, the barrel, receiver and buttplate are plated in 24-carat gold with the buttstock laser engraved and covered with highly detailed images inspired by the people, places and events from the Transcontinental Railroad’s 150 years history!
There will only be 150 numbered rifles made for this edition however you have the choice of the type of finish you would like. We offer a full gold edition that has 24 Karat gold on the barrel, receiver, lever and buttplate with certain parts of the receiver selectively plated with nickel to accent the subjects. The second option is a brass finish which is only on the receiver with the subjects in nickel.
