Henry Big Boy .357 Magnum Lever Action Rifle




Did this video help you?

Brandon Evans: If you go on the Henry Repeating Arms website they have very informative maintenance videos for their rifles. Go over to wear it says "Own a Henry" and click on Rifle Maintenance Videos. Gives you a basic introduction, goes over disassembly, cleaning & lubrication, Reassembly, Safety, Loading, Sights, and a wrap up.

chexmygold: Big Boy .357 s seem to be scarce right now. Those that are selling, like on gun broker dot com, are going over the "M S R P" . I am still looking! How different is the .38 special in this rifle?

doomedtoindoorranges: Congratulations and enjoy, you should many years of fun with that rifle, take care:)

Dan J: Down side is that you have to load from the front of the tubular mag. That's just not as cool as a side receiver. and the 92's are said to have the smoothest action. So with that logic you should have a Winchester 92 :) But I do agree henry's look nice

Pupil0fGod: Its such a beautiful gun, I'm thinking it will make its place as 5th or 6th in my collection, depending on if I acquire a evil black gun first. 1. Mosin 2. Maverick 88 3. 1851 navy in .36 cap&ball 4. .357 mag (future)

Joe Lewus: I guess the people I ordered from were too lazy I didn't wait long. I did put an order in at two other stores and they didn't deliver. When I picked mine up there was another but it went to an order. usually I only see 45 long colt in stores, never .357. That is odd for a business to not try and stock an item that is an easy sell. BTW it was $869.99 plus tax and back ground check call charge.

baldbollocks: All very nice but lets SEE the target ! !

Joe Lewus: I got lucky, I ordered one and received it last week. If you want one find a store that is identified as a Gold Dealer by Henry and order from them. I have also seen one on Gunsamerica online but it was bought like the next day it was listed.

Lion Phoenix: Man I want one of these so much.

Lion Phoenix: I reload too. One question though. How are these guns with lead hard cast bullets? (with gas checks of course).

doomedtoindoorranges: @ctrlaltWOOT Thanks and Thanks for watching:)

gunman5566: Do the gloves help?

doomedtoindoorranges: I shoot a great deal, so the hands can get a little worn and just the extra added layer of protection against a hot barrel etc., it's really personal pref., but the gloves seem to make a difference for me, but I will say, if I'm going to shoot a pistol match, I would wear only one glove but for rifle or long gun I wear both, Thanks for watching, take care:)

jimmy6stringsroveto: Man, I want one. Such a beautiful gun.

doomedtoindoorranges: Cool, that would be great. I think I remember reading in the manual something not needing to break it down, run a patch thru your barrel and clean the chamber, I could be wrong but I think I saw that, but I do not break it down for cleaning, take care and have a good one:)

olboomer: ...and how much did you pay for it btw

Z71usa: I'll try to get a shooting video next time I make it to the range. Do you normally break yours all the way down to clean it? I haven't been able to find any good videos on disassembly and cleaning.

doomedtoindoorranges: @baldbollocks What target? it's completely blown away;) Thanks for watching and Merry Christmas!

doomedtoindoorranges: In my experiance, the lever action is far smoother on the Henry and the fit and finish is better on the Henry but Marlin is great rifle, if I was going to pick between the two, I would choose the Henry due to the smooth lever action. Thanks for watching and take care:)

Lion Phoenix: Man you lucky duck! I called Henry repeating arms a few days ago and the gave me a phone number to give to the firearms dealers in my area to call to order one. I was told by the person I spoke to at Henry that they are available.The problem is that most of the gun dealers even the gold Henry dealers in my area are a bunch of lazy bastards that just blow smoke in your face. They can't be bothered to order the gun you want.They just want you to buy something they have in stock. Bunch of assholes!

doomedtoindoorranges: I'm a handloader, so from that point of view the .357 would be easier to deal with ammo wise and you could load the .357 pretty hot, however the 30-30 is a great round and has been around for a long time and has alot more punch to it. The other nice thing about .357 is you could match a handgun to that caliber, there are semi-auto's out there in .357 as well as the old stand by, the revolver. For me, I would choose the .357 over the 30-30, if you have any other questions, please PM me, Thanks:)

doomedtoindoorranges: @olboomer I have not fired a Rossi, really want to though, it seems spot on right from Henry, I have not had to adjust the iron sights but I have only fired it at 50 yards, but overall it is a very nice rifle and I would recommend this one or any Henry. Take care ans Thanks for watching:)

doomedtoindoorranges: You made a great choice, Henry firearms are very nice and shoot very well, plus they are made in the USA! Send me a shooting vid when you get time, Thanks for watching and take care:)

doomedtoindoorranges: @doomedtoindoorranges Cool, Thanks to you as well. I love the lever action rifles, take care and Thanks for watching:)

doomedtoindoorranges: @23mrcowboys Where I live at there's no place to hunt without driving several hours, but it's a fun shooter, Thanks for stopping by, take care.

olboomer: Nice, how would you rate accuracy compared to Marlin / Rossi / Handi ?

Joe Lewus: Good luck finding one in .357

Z71usa: I just picked up one of these in .357 I haven't seen one in person before they are absolutely awesome. The store I found it at had 2 in stock. I was awe struck and had to buy it on the spot @699 I felt like I was getting a deal.

doomedtoindoorranges: @olboomer I had to order it because I could not find a gun shop that had one in stock, so I probably paid a bit more but it ran me about 950.00 out the door brand new. Thanks for watching and take care:)

doomedtoindoorranges: @andrew40000 Thanks so much. The Henry is quite heavy and can be a strain to hold it up in the off hand position for a long period of time, but it is very comfortable to fire due to the extra weight, with a bench, you could shoot it all day and not even feel it. I have not fired 38 specials thru it at all but I did notice in the manual not to use ammo like blazers, the aluminum cases might bend when the elevator pushed the shell upward, overall, it's an awesome lever gun, Thanks for watching:)

Lion Phoenix: I have been searching for 5 months.

Z71usa: Great thanks. I remember reading that in the manual also. It just seems a little strange to not break a gun down for cleaning. I bought a bore snake and I'll just start with cleaning it that way. Cheers!

doomedtoindoorranges: You are so right, very nice rifle and a pleasure to shoot, you will not be disappointed when you purchase one, Thanks for watching and take care:)

doomedtoindoorranges: @Pupil0fGod Thank you very much, not only is it beautiful but the lever action on Henry firearms are like butter, so smooth and such a pleasure to shoot:) I know you would enjoy one, I would love to aquire the .44 mag version as well. Thanks again, take care and Thanks for watching:)

andrew40000: Nice shootin, I've been considering buying this gun but I read some reviews regarding it being muzzle heavy? Is it comfortable to shoot for long periods while standing? Also, have you had any issues firing .38 and .357 through this gun at all?

damiion666: Im considering selling off my semi auto black rifles and getting a good lever action to replace my shtf gun. Im debating whether to go with a 30 30 or a 357. What do u think? I believe the marlin 30 30 can only hold 7 rounds. How is the recoil with the 357?

CaptureRapture: Hello, just got this today. I was very disappointed by the fact that mine rattles. If you move yours from side to side kinda fast does it sound like there is something loose inside? It's easily noticeable if you pick it up and turn it or move it from side to side.... I have emailed them asking if this is normal. Awaiting a reply, I just wondered if yours does it too? Thanks!
WorldWarSupply: I had no luck doing it any other way.
