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.

And, the 2015 success of the Big Boy Steel model led to the 2016 introduction of the Big Boy Steel Carbine, in the same three calibers, 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. Nearly a half-pound lighter, and with an overall length of 34”, this is one trim partner to your favorite revolver in any of those three calibers, and it’s a great compact trailgun on its own.

I am super pleased with how this rifle has performed. Right out of the box, this rifle functioned perfectly and smoothly. Although the manual says it may have difficulty cycling .38 special rounds due to the overall length, I have had no problems feeding .38 special rounds through it, regardless of the bullet weight or shape. Within a few minutes and after slightly raising the elevation of the rear sight, I was consistently hitting metal silhouettes at 50 and 100 meters. The windage was perfect right out the the box and provided consistent 1 inch groups at 50 meters with reloaded ammunition. I ended up adding a leather sling to the factory sling mounts and love the way it feels when carried on my shoulder. With its light weight, you hardly know it is there. Like my Henry lever action .22, I plan to get many years of plinking out of this rifle and really like the compact length and lower weight that the carbine model provides as compared to the 20" model or other models from other manufacturers. If you are looking for a great looking and fun-to-shoot pistol-caliber rifle at an affordable price, choose this one, you will not be displeased! And best of all, it is made in the U.S.A.

One of many guns my family has bought from Buds. This Henry is a nice addition to the line-up. It shipped and arrived fast. Can't complain about Bud's. The rifle, however, had a few issues right out of the gate. The ejection of empty shells was weak. They rolled out of the chamber. We had a few failure to feeds. But the most odd problem was when we fired .38+P and .357, if you didn't have your hand on the lever it would drop open about 1 inch. Now for the good news. Henry is taking care of the issues. They were fantastic about getting the prepaid shipping label to me, and actually WANTED to fix those issues. The rifle is well balanced, and light weight. Beautiful fit and finish. And this one was shooting bullseyes at 15 yards right out of the box. This rifle is great, and I have confidence that Henry will deliver a perfect rifle.

The big boy arrived on time and in perfect shape. I eyeballed the sights straight before shooting and first shot was a bullseye at 25yds. Shot a 3" group at 100 yds, one being a bullseye with the factory sights shooting factory 158gr ammo. Trigger is great and cycles 158gr 38s just as well as the 357s. Great lil carbine!

I was very pleased with the first impression of this product. The lines of the receiver were sharp and strait. No bad polishing or washed out screw holes. Stock finish was excellent as was the checkering. Couple complaints. Butt stock fit at rear tangs was off in the vertical about 1/16 . Metal fit between receiver and lower assembly off. Both these things are correctable and I will probably do it in the future (long time gunsmith).
I have a Williams Foolproof receiver sight ordered. My old eyes don/t do open sights very well. However, from what I did shot, it seems accurate. Keep my fingers crossed.
This is my first Henry rifle and I'm thinking it won't be my last.

    David, yes Sir it fires any factory 357Magnum or 39Special ammunition and makes a great companion to a 357/38 Pistol as you will use the same ammunition for both.

    Here is what Buds say about prices "Our website updates every 20 minutes, 24/7, with our current inventory and replacement cost. We do not price our guns manually based on our cost in each, rather we use a live download from manufacturers and distributors to set our price based on our current replacement cost. As our cost changes, the corresponding website price of each make/model will change up/down accordingly. Although our profit margin remains unchanged, our advertised prices will change frequently, sometimes several times per day"
