Tested: The Henry Casehardened Big Boy 357 Magnum Rifle
Terril gets to shooting the Henry Casehardened Big Boy 357 Magnum Rifle.
USA – -(
Despite this little qualm, fit and finish was excellent with no inlaying gaps, and the checkering was well-placed and well executed. As one would expect from a Henry, the action worked smoothly with a flick of the wrist. No grit, no slop. Nitpicking aside, I was excited. The pistol caliber lever action has always been espoused as handy and easy to shoot. I am no stranger to the 357 Magnum and 38 Special cartridges that this Henry eats, so I had plenty of ammo on hand to test. I was sure it would be a fun time. These blued steel components are matted smartly to a color casehardened steel frame and a corresponding American walnut buttstock and fore end. The buttstock has a traditional straight comb and grip that rides along the gun’s lever action terminating to a hefty rubber buttpad.
