One of the greatest things that we at Henry Repeating Arms enjoy doing is meeting customer requests. Our customers have made us what we are today, and we’ll never forget that. When we introduced our first two case-hardened rifles, in .30-30 Winchester and .45-70 Government, they immediately generated so many responses asking for more options that in 2018 we’re answering the calls by giving you a full half-dozen more.
We know very well that no two people agree on the ideal rifle, so we not only give you your choice of Big Boy calibers in .357 Mag/.38 Special, .44 Mag/.44 Special, and .45 Colt, but you can also choose between either a standard 20” barrel and lever, or a compact 16.5” barrel fitted with a large-loop lever for cold-weather gloved use (or just-because style points in general). Both long and short models feature clean checkering on fore-end and straight-wrist stock, our adjustable buck and bead sights, an automatic in-hammer transfer bar safety, and our traditional tube loading.
These steel Big Boys are also drilled and tapped for scope mounts, and coupled with our dependable smooth actions and built-in accuracy, they’re every bit as good on the Fall hunt as they are on Saturday afternoon paper at the range.
