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
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
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
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.
