I've been wanting a lever action in .357 for some time now, after searching for either new or used, I stumbled on a new Henry Big Boy...30 mins later it followed me home (Santa was 4 days late!) now just waiting on the weather to coperate a bit, just a bit damp out.

It is a tad bit heavy 8.7 pounds so recoil should be like shooting a 22.

Down side is...I only have about 500 rounds of .357. up side is there all loaded and ready to go!

I've heard nothing but good about the Henry's anyone have expirence with them?

Your so lucky!!! I've always wanted a Henry, but will probably never have one!! No funds!! and no funds means no fun!! I can't explain it, after I held one, one time at a store I just "wanted" one. You got one fine Christmas gift there...enjoy! Oh and Happy New Year!!! (hope I put enough "ones" in this:)

I have a Henry 22. Super accurate out of the box, well made, delight to shoot. Not a big caliber, but if all their weapons are made like that...go for it.

I also have the Henry Golden Boy in .22. I can only speak for my rimfire, but it is a real shooter!
I hope you enjoy your Henry as much as I enjoy mine!!
