Boom. It’s right there in the name. Henry’s All Weather rifles are just that. The hard chrome plating covers all metal surfaces, while the hardwood furniture has a “durable, industrial-grade coating.” In a thoughtful move for hunters, Henry makes the hard chrome coating non-reflective so as not to spook the game.
