Made of Steel, Now In Rifle And Carbine...

While the people at Henry are fond of the brass tradition begun by B.T. Henry’s 1860 rifle, they do understand that today’s hunter may prefer something a shade lighter on the mountain, and the Big Boy Steel Side Gate 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 1.68lbs. less than its cousin.

The model features fine checkering on the genuine American walnut fore-end and straight-wrist stock, range-adjustable semi-buckhorn rear and brass bead front sights, an automatic in-hammer transfer bar safety, and Henry's best-of-both-worlds side loading gate and removable tube magazine configuration.  The rifles hold ten rounds in the tube.

Together with a trusty revolver in the same calibre, these rifles make the most of Cowboy Logistics, reducing the weight of the ammunition required on the trail. They fit saddle scabbards snugly, with the milder report of pistol-calibre cartridges being easier on the horse ears. 

Traditional in appearance, pistol-calibre Big Boys are drilled and tapped for optic mounts for rapid target acquisition with red dots and longer reach with magnified scopes. Long barrels produce a substantial velocity increase with Magnum pistol cartridges, approaching the conventional rifle levels while offering greater tube magazine capacity and shorter lever throws thanks to shorter cases. Smooth, dependable actions and inherent accuracy of Henry barrels add up to enjoyable handling and effective performance on game and paper targets alike.

A perfect choice with its subdued no-spook-em dark finish and easy-to-maneuver dimensions, this is the brand new deer rifle you’ve been looking for, right here.
