Henry Repeating Arms has announced a limited-edition series of 50 “Team Jack” rifles to raise funds for the Vancouver, Washington, family of 14-year-old Jack Troxel to provide financial relief for past and ongoing medical expenses.

Jack was diagnosed with an intracranial malignant non-germinomatous germ cell tumor in July 2021, and has since gone through four brain surgeries, seven rounds of chemotherapy, one round of high-dose chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant, six weeks of full brain and spine radiation, and four weeks of intensive physical, occupational, and speech therapy to counteract the toll such treatments take on a developing body. Jack is currently in remission and receives MRI scans every three months.

Henry Repeating Arms Founder and CEO Anthony Imperato donated all 50 rifles, which are now available for sale online. Baron Engraving of Trumbull, Connecticut, donated the artwork development time, engraving, and hand-painted embellishments. All proceeds from the “Team Jack” campaign, including both rifles going up for auction, will be presented to the Troxels.

The Henry “Team Jack” Golden Boy Silver .22 S/L/LR lever action rifle features genuine American walnut furniture, a 20” blued steel octagon barrel, a gleaming nickel-plated receiver cover, buttplate, and barrel band, and a unique serial number range from TEAMJACK01 through TEAMJACK50. Unique to this edition is the highly detailed design on the buttstock, which is laser engraved and painted by hand. The design features images depicting Jack’s love of the great outdoors, a “Team Jack” banner with a “His Fight Is Our Fight” tagline, and two ribbons, one in gold and one in grey. The gold ribbon is the international awareness symbol for childhood cancer, and the grey ribbon represents support for brain cancer.

“Throughout his entire ordeal, we held onto what we call the ‘three F’s,’ which helped Jack get through the most difficult times. Faith, Family, and Friends,” said Ryan Troxel, Jack’s father. “Thank you to Henry Repeating Arms for the donations and support on Jack’s behalf. We can’t believe this.”

“The courage and strength shown by these kids going through unimaginable struggles at such a young age will never cease to astound me,” said Imperato. “To everyone that chooses to purchase one of these rifles to help support Jack and his family, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Sending a big hug to Jack and his parents.”

All firearm purchases must ship to a federally licensed firearms dealer. To learn more about Henry Repeating Arms and its products, please visit henryusa.com
