The Heroes of Texas Tribute celebrates those brave men whose names echo through the pages of history – larger than life individuals who figure prominently in the distinguished heritage of America’s 28th state, the grand state of Texas.
Their courage was unmatched, their spirit undefeatable. Between them, they built a might Republic that changed the face of history, and a legend so large only Texas could hold it.
Left side of the receiver features a portrait of Sam Houston, general of the Texas Army who achieved a decisive victory against Santa Anna at San Jacinto, despite being outnumbered by a two-to-one margin. To his right is a portrait of Colonel William Travis, and an image of the Alamo, where Travis and so many others died in one of the most celebrated battles in American history. Also featured is a portrait of John Bell Hood, whose valor in the Civil War elevated him to the rank of General in spite of several crippling injuries.
Right side of the receiver features Stephen Austin who engineered the American colonization of Texas in the early 19th century, earning him the title, “The Father of Texas.” In the center is Juan Seguin, a courageous cavalry leader in the war for Texan independence. Behind him is the eagle-and-snake emblem of Mexico, the land of his birth, which he fought when he joined the Texans in their battle against Santa Anna. To the left is an outline of Texas with the “Lone Star” emblem. Each of the images is captured in a stunning combination of 24-karat gold and nickel with a special blackened patinaed background for maximum detail and contrast.
Complementing the Model 1873 rifle’s handsomely decorated receiver are the laser carvings on the walnut stocks, featuring the legend “Heroes of Texas Tribute” on the forearm and a “Lone Star” surrounded by elaborate scrollwork on the shoulder stock. The gold decorated hammer, lever, forearm cap, magazine cap, and butt plate add to the rifle’s appeal.
