If the thought of carrying a rifle up a mountain or through thick brush is weighing you down take a load off. Introducing the Henry 44 Magnum Big Boy Carbine, a modern carry-over of the “Trapper” classics of the past. It combines all the features of the legendary Big Boy rifle with the quick handling of a shorter, lighter carbine barrel length — losing almost a pound in barrel weight.
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. This is still one hard to come. 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.
