An Awesome Gun: The Henry 44 Magnum “Big Boy” Carbine
In the video below, they’re reviewing the Henry Big Boy 44 Magnum Carbine all steel model. Now, I’m not really all that fond of a rifle firing a pistol round, but if I had to make a choice, then this would be the rifle I’d want.
If the thought of carrying a rifle up a mountain, or through thick brush is weighing you down, then take a load off. Introducing the Henry Big Boy Carbine, a modern carry-over of the “Trapper” classics of the past. It combines all the features of their 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. And like their classic Big Boy, the attention to detail in the design features great Western styling including a large loop lever that 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 and the tubular magazine tops off at 7 rounds. And out in the bush, the lighter weight makes all the difference, but it doesn’t sacrifice any power when firing the .44 magnum round.
This is an awesome brush gun.
