The success of Henry's Big Boy Steel model led to the Big Boy Steel Carbine, with the same matte-finish blued steel frame and round barrel, this time in 16.5" length. It has a ventilated rubber recoil pad, sling swivel studs, and rifle-style forend cap instead of the usual carbine-type barrel band. It comes with Henry's glove-friendly oversized lever, and a seven-round magazine capacity. The Big Boy Carbine has checkered walnut furniture, is drilled & tapped for optional scope mounts, and uses the same fully adjustable rear sight with white diamond insert and a beaded front sight as the standard Big Boy, with the same sliding transfer bar "safety" system in its hammer. It is drilled and tapped for easy scope mounting using the BB-RSM receiver scope mount. A perfect choice for the 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, Henry's got the brand new deer rifle you've been looking for right here. Nearly a half-pound lighter, and with an overall length of 34", this is one trim partner to your favorite revolver, and it s a great compact trailgun on its own.
