Editor’s Note:

Henry has melded the old and new with the introduction of their Big Boy X. Utilizing the classic Henry lever-action platform, the Big Boy X adds some modern features such as M-LOK and Picatinny rails, polymer furniture, fiber optic iron sights, and a threaded barrel. In addition to the standard tube loading, these rifles feature a side gate to allow the rifle to be topped off without the removal of a suppressor. A medium-sized loop allows for ease of use with gloved hands, and as always, you get the proven reliability and accuracy that Henry rifles are known for.

By The Numbers - Henry Big Boy X

We’re certainly not lever-action marksmen, but considering our intended use for the gun is “fun,” this feels pretty damn acceptable for us.
While we don’t think any of the occasional hiccups with the gun were the gun’s fault, there were hiccups nonetheless. Again, it’s likely nothing that training and forming muscle memory can’t address.
While there’s not a ton of aftermarket support for the Big Boy X in the same way as more modern/less niche rifles, it certainly does still exist. As mentioned, optics, lights, lasers, shell caddies, and slings are going to be your bread and butter here, but you can push it further if need be.
Surprisingly, the antiquated design of the lever gun in general is still quite comfortable to run, and although it’s obviously not as sleek and ergonomically-driven as a modern AR build, I didn’t have any biting gripes about it outside of the lever being slightly painful to operate for long periods of time if you’re not wearing gloves.

Henry Big Boy Classic


The Henry Big Boy Classic is a slick-looking entry into Henry’s Big Boy series. It offers a 20-inch barrel and 10-round capacity with a lever-action design. Practically, it’s not the best for defensive situations, but its sheer fun makes up for that.

Henry Golden Boy .22 LR


Classic lines, cheap ammo, and an affordable rifle are all calling cards of the Henry Golden Boy .22 LR. For those looking for some western-style lever-action fun, it is hard to pass up the 6.75 lb brass and walnut beauty of the Golden Boy. Its low weight, adjustable buckhorn sights, and good balance help make this rifle easy to shoot offhand and fun to plink with. A good trigger, a smooth lever action, and the low recoil of .22 LR will be sure to put a smile on your face for hours on end.

final verdict

“If you’re looking to get your Instagram-worthy swag points on with a fully tricked out, modern lever gun chambered in a functional plinking cartridge that isn’t going to tenderize your dainty basement flesh after a day’s worth of shooting, we can’t think of a better base for it than the Henry 357 Big Boy X.” – John Currie
