Henry X Model
 
Just picked up my Henry Big Boy X Model in 44 mag. I wanted a 44 mag Henry for a while. I have more bolt guns and ARís of every description. No lever gun. So I was thinking about this for the last two months, researched, looked, researched some more and finally decided on the X Model. Very happy with fit and finish, action is like butter, trigger a 4.5 lbs rips pull. Get it to the range soon. Canít waithttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...0dc928790a.jpg

Yep a tactical lever gun. Really sick. Already got the brass, powder and bullets to load for her. Got 100 each of Hornady XTPís , 240 gr and 300 gr. Winchester 296 powder. Thinking 1,775 FPS from the 240ís. About 1590 or so from the 300 gr bullets.

I've got the Golden boy .44 mag rifle. It's an amazingly accurate rifle. Broke the tang on the tube mag a few times due to the recoil and the firing pin twice. But this was after thousands of rounds through it.

You SOB :thumbsup:

.38/357 is on my buy list :) Two local shops I go through cannot provide an ETA on them :(

Lever guns are a just fun and different, Henry puts out a nice product and with some use that lever action will burnish itself and get really smooth.

Drool. Can't wait to hear a range report. I'm seriously jonesing for one in 357.

I tracked mine down on guns America. They have sold out just about every one made. Found this one out in Colorado.

My buddy had a 44 mag Big Boy shot a couple time at the range. I was hooked. What a thumper.

Thinking about putting a Muzzle brake with a blast shield. I got a lot of stuff from Breek Arms. Have to get the 308 and then drill it out. What are your thoughts here guys.
