Big Boy Steel

Big Boy Steel

Made of Steel, Now In Rifle And Carbine

View Rifle Specifications

While we are fond of the brass tradition begun by B.T. Henry’s 1860 rifle, we do understand that today’s hunter may prefer something a shade lighter on the mountain, and the 2015 introduction of the Big Boy Steel carries on the same brush gun appeal of the brass-framed Big Boys in its overall configuration, but with upgraded features for the modern hunter, while weighing in 1.68 lbs. less than its shiny cousin.

The 7 lbs. steel Big Boy hangs its 20” round barrel and checkered walnut furniture on a matte-finished blued steel frame that’s drilled & tapped for optional scope mounts, and uses the same adjustable Western-style sights as the standard Big Boy, with the same sliding transfer bar “safety” system in its hammer. Most of the weight savings is due to the steel frame being lighter than a brass counterpart to begin with, and less steel in the thinner barrel walls than an octagon version.

To make sure the steel Big Boy stays easy on the shoulder in any of its three calibers, the .357 Magnum/.38 Special, .44 Magnum/.44 Special, and .45 Colt; we use a black solid rubber recoil pad. For hands-free hiking up or down, it wears sling swivel studs; and we’ve also added a rifle-style fore-end cap instead of the usual carbine-type barrel band.

A perfect choice for the new 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, we’ve got that brand new deer rifle you’ve been looking for right here.

And, the 2015 success of the Big Boy Steel model led to the 2016 introduction of the Big Boy Steel Carbine, in the same three calibers, with the same blued frame and round barrel, this time in 16.5” length. It comes with our glove-friendly oversized lever, and a seven-round magazine capacity. Nearly a half-pound lighter, and with an overall length of 34”, this is one trim partner to your favorite revolver in any of those three calibers, and it’s a great compact trailgun on its own.

Jeff BabcockDear Mr. Imperato,

I emailed you last week stating I had purchased a Henry Rile – a Big Boy Steel to be exact. I loved the look when I took it out of the box, and I love it even more now that I’ve been to the range (3x)!

It shoots like a dream. You should see what it does to a 1/2 liter water bottle! LOL. The bottle is about 2 ½ inches across. From 25 yards, I hit them 4 out of 4 times. I’m an OK shot, but this rifle makes me a better marksman.

Just wanted to let you know, I think you have a GREAT product.

Thanks for keeping it American!

Mr. Imperato,
This month (March 2016) I took receipt of a Henry Big Boy Steel chambered in .357 Magnum. Being a US Army Commissioned Officer stationed here in New Jersey I am partial to American made products, thus the only other lever gun I own is a Marlin. I take pride in knowing my firearms inside and out and I’ve fired and subsequently disassembled your firearm. My conclusion is that your firearm is a superior product, the Cadillac of American made lever guns. The fit, finish and attention to detail that make up your firearms is the standard that other manufacturers should emulate.

Mr. Imperato,

I am a journeyman stamping die builder with over 40 years of engineering, precision machining and grinding, and die building, so when I tell you that my Henry is as quality a piece of equipment as I’ve ever had in my hands, you can believe it. And I’m proud to say it. Keep up the wonderful work on this American classic.

Greg ScottI just wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed my Henry Rifle. I bought a big boy steel in .44 mag because I thought my grand daughter would be able to deer hunt with it. Do to sports she could not hunt but I did slip out and shoot a doe with it. She does love shooting it and we have had a ball very little recoil and really accurate I think a 45-70 is in my future

Thanks,
Greg Scott


Charles E Clark JRI just purchased my 3rd Henry a Big Boy Steel H012M 357/38. I wanted to congratulate the Henry team for another great rifle.
Outstanding wood to metal finish, the action is smooth as butter.
I can wait to take her to the range and test how she shoots.

I also just placed and order for a Scope mount to help my elderly eyes.

Thanks again! God Bless and have a Very Merry Christmas.
