The Henry Big Boy Steel 45 Colt Large Loop side gate rifle is an outstanding companion on the trail, at the range plinking steel, or even as a home defense gun. While this rifle has its roots in the old west, it is loaded with upgraded features for the modern hunter. The Big Boy Steel is 1.68lbs lighter than it’s brass cousin making it easier to carry on the hunt. Range-adjustable semi-buckhorn rear and brass bead front sights provide a clear traditional sight picture while a drilled and tapped receiver makes mounting a modern scope a breeze. The Big Boy Steel makes use of an automatic in-hammer transfer bar safety and a best-of-both-worlds side loading gate and removable tube magazine configuration. This beautiful rifle features a large lever action loop and American walnut furniture with fine checkering on the foregrip and grip area of the stock. The 45 Colt rifle makes the most of cowboy logistics by reducing the weight of the ammunition required on the trail when combined with the same caliber revolver. The longer 20″ barrel of the rifle vs a handgun produces a substantial velocity increase with pistol cartridges that approaches rifle cartridge levels with greater magazine capacity. Like all Henry rifles, the Big Boy Steel rifle has a smooth, dependable action and accurate, high quality barrel that results in a pleasurable shooting experience. The Big Boy Steel 45 Colt Large Loop is an excellent choice for a hunting rifle in states where straight-walled cartridge hunting laws are in effect.
