When we brought out the two All-Weather Henry lever action models in .30-30 and .45-70 in 2016, we knew we had another winner in the “Working Gun” category, and you’ve agreed with us to the point of extending the approach into a brand new Big Boy family member- the Big Boy All-Weather.
While the first two rifle-calibered All-Weathers cover the hunting market for those who favor these time-honored classics on big game in hostile environments, not everybody needs the power levels, and there are very few handguns available in the .30-30 and .45-70 for those who may cotton to the idea of toting one caliber in both long-gun and handgun.
So, we took the logical next step, and built the All-Weather version of our popular steel Big Boy, in the same three basic handgun calibers, and the same 20” round barrel. Noticeably lighter in heft than our hardened-brass Big Boys with octagon barrels, while offering the same adjustable sights, the same accuracy, the same magazine capacities, the same magazine tube loading feature, the same sling swivel studs, the same rifle-style fore-end cap, and the same non-slip solid rubber recoil pad.
While it may sound like we’re just gilding the steel Big Boy lily with a different finish, the durable hard chrome plating that just doesn’t give up moves the dependable pistol-calibered platform squarely into “Next Gen” status, and combined with the tough moisture-resistant industrial-grade coating on the hardwood furniture, you can match one up with your favorite revolver caliber, your favorite stainless steel handgun, your favorite truck, or your favorite saddle scabbard, in rain, sleet, hail, snow, or whatever weather conditions your trail may lead you into.
Created for a rough life, when you need something more than a “fair weather friend” this All-Weather Boy is like a faithful family dog; it fairly begs to go along when you suit up for a cold and wet hunt, a stormy day on the ranch, or just an afternoon ride in the country.
When you need a rugged partner that doesn’t need babying any more than you do, the All-Weather Big Boy is your answer.
