Built in line with all Henry lever actions, you can count on a smooth, quiet and reliable action. The Henry Big Boy Steel features a 20" round barrel that will deliver the accuracy you need. The barrel is topped with a fully adjustable rear sight with white diamond insert and a beaded front sight.
The receiver is matte finish and comes drilled and tapped for easy scope mounting using our BB-RSM receiver scope mount, which is readily available from our parts department.
The checkered American walnut stock comes with a sturdy and impact resistant recoil pad. Available in three calibers, .44 Mag, .45 Colt and .357 Mag, capacity is 10 rounds. -
While we are fond of the brass tradition begun by B.T. Henry’s 1860 rifle, we do understand that today’s hunter may prefer something a shade lighter on the mountain, and the 2015 introduction of the Big Boy Steel carries on the same brush gun appeal of the brass-framed Big Boys in its overall configuration, but with upgraded features for the modern hunter, while weighing in 1.68 lbs. less than its shiny cousin.
The 7 lbs. steel Big Boy hangs its 20” round barrel and checkered walnut furniture on a matte-finished blued steel frame that’s drilled & tapped for optional scope mounts, and uses the same adjustable Western-style sights as the standard Big Boy, with the same sliding transfer bar “safety” system in its hammer. Most of the weight savings is due to the steel frame being lighter than a brass counterpart to begin with, and less steel in the thinner barrel walls than an octagon version.
To make sure the steel Big Boy stays easy on the shoulder in any of its three calibers, the .357 Magnum/.38 Special, .44 Magnum/.44 Special, and .45 Colt; we’ve added a ventilated rubber recoil pad. For hands-free hiking up or down, it wears sling swivel studs; and we’ve also added a rifle-style fore-end cap instead of the usual carbine-type barrel band.
A perfect choice for the new straight-walled cartridge hunting laws in Ohio, Indiana, Southern Michigan, and those pending in other areas; with its subdued no-spook-em dark finish and easy-to-maneuver dimensions, we’ve got that brand new deer rifle you’ve been looking for right here.
