MAINBB Revolver

Expanding beyond the lever-action rifles and shotguns so synonymous with the Henry name, the Henry Big Boy Revolver is a historic release that will appeal even to collectors, as a rare opportunity to own the first bonafide handgun made by the long gun manufacturer. It also makes the perfect sidekick for owners of the Henry Big Boy rifle.

Henry BB Revolver Cylinder Rolled out

Chambered in .357 Magnum/.38 Special, the traditional double-action revolver is available in two different grip configurations—the larger, flared Gunfighter style or the more compact, rounded Birdshead style. The Big Boy Revolver borrows design cues from its rifle counterpart, with deep and polished blueing on the medium-sized steel frame, a 6-round quick-release cylinder and 4-inch barrel, grip panels cut from genuine American walnut, and a polished brass trigger guard that wraps all way around the grip to the top of the backstrap. The fixed notch rear sight and interchangeable front blade sights with different heights provide a traditional revolver sight picture. For more information, check out henryusa.com. MSRP: $928
