While I don't have an opinion on the Big Boy Rifle, my wife owns a Golden Boy chambered for .17 HMR. It is a fantastic gun. The action is smooth, the trigger is crisp, and for the money paid, it was a good investment. The only problems I've had with it were due to it being really dirty and very cold. We were shooting in temps below freezing and the gun didn't like that very well. Coupled with the fact that the action was fouled up with unburnt rimfire powder and carbon, I concluded those two factors to it not wanting to feed properly that day. Cleaned it up and haven't had the problem since.

You can "antique" a bright brass gun with brass black like the CASS guys do.

I'm shopping for a used 1860 Henry repro and that is what this guy did to his.
I think its awesome. Unfortunately, he already sold this rifle.

Looking for different frt/rear sights for a Henry carbine H001 (round barrel).
Can't find anything except tang sights.

I sent one letter to Henry Repeaters but I can't find her answer. I think she thought I was asking if an octagon Golden Boy barrel would fit in the receiver of a carbine. Obviously no.

What I'm trying to find is if the open sight hex barrel dovetails are the same size as on a carbine. Are the "slots" the same?

Can anybody help me?

Its the flashy brass that turns me off. I'd want it as a hunting rifle, not SASS or range play.

I have a Henry BB in .45 LC and it shoots better than I can it is a tack driver in the right hands.
I reload and have had no problems with the rifle clean up is a snap I can get the rigle clean in a half hour and that's after a long day at the range with at least 100 rounds through it.
I enjoy my Henry so much that I recently added another the Henry BB in 357/38 spcl I haven't got to shoot it yet but after cleaning it and running dummy rounds through the action it's as smoooth as my 1st Henry. Can't wait to get it to the range for sighting in.
Some of the replies on here denergrate the Brass receiver cover. Me I like it--- As far as I'm concerned the Henry is a top-notch rifle and made in America to boot can't beat that combination IMO. If you do decide in favor of the Henry you will have bought a fine long gun.
