    Henry Rifles

    I am considering looking into buying a Henry Big Boy rifle but want to get input from people first on this rifle. Does anyone have any good or bad reviews on them?

    and only say nice things about them.

    my big boy is a SASS gun and though it was not 'slicked up' it runs fine and shoots to POA

    Played with a .22 Henry for an afternoon. Very smooth but I don't know what the receiver is made out of. It sure ain't steel. Most like them but construction seemed cheapo to me.

    Cool

    This pre 1899 Henry is for sale. I believe the original receiver was made of brass.

    It is suppose to be a real value at $27,500.00

    My brothers, all 5 of them, have and like the AR-7. The eldest two also have the Big Boy model I think is 44 mag. I have not heard any of them ever say anything negative about them.

    Now I'd take a Civil War era Henry rifle, Old School.
