If the thought of carrying a rifle up a mountain or through thick brush is weighing you down, take a load off. The Henry Big Boy Carbine is a modern carry-over of the 'Trapper' classics of the past. It combines all the features of Henry's legendary Big Boy rifle with the quick handling of a shorter, lighter carbine barrel length which decreases barrel weight by almost a pound. It's the ideal brush gun for tight spaces, but don't let its compact size fool you. The shorter barrel gives up nothing in accuracy to the regular Big Boy. And like the classic Henry Big Boy, the attention to detail in the design with great western styling including the large loop lever makes holding this rifle as thrilling as it is to shoot. The 16.5" octagonal barrel is outfitted with a classic fully adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sight with a reversible white diamond insert and a brass beaded front sight. The tubular magazine tops off at 7 rounds. Both the straight-grip stock and forearm are crafted of select American walnut accented with a brass barrel band and Henry's recognizable brass receiver. All have that crisp, smooth action that sets an authentic American-made Henry apart from other lever action rifles on the range and in the woods today. Whether you're looking for the perfect gun to saddle up with or to hog hunt across the Florida backwoods, the Henry Big Boy Carbine is the big shot in a small package you've been waiting for. The 44 Magnum will also fire 44 Special rounds.
