Henry has got that brand new deer rifle you’ve been looking for right here.
While Henry is 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 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 1.68lbs. less than its cousin.
The steel Big Boy with checkered walnut furniture on a matte-finished blued steel frame that’s drilled & tapped for optional scope mounts, 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.
And, the 2015 success of the Big Boy Steel model led to the 2016 introduction of the Big Boy Steel Carbine, with the same blued frame and round barrel, this time in 16.5” length. It comes with our glove-friendly oversized lever, and a seven-round magazine capacity. To make sure the steel Big Boy stays easy on the shoulder Henry has used a black solid rubber recoil pad. For hands-free hiking up or down, it wears sling swivel studs; and they’ve also added a rifle-style fore-end cap instead of the usual carbine-type barrel band. Nearly a half-pound lighter, and with an overall length of 34”, this is one trim partner to your favorite revolver, and it’s a great compact trailgun on its own.
