Ummm, I only have a Henry .22 Mag lever w/octagon barrel and bead front site. I REALLY like that rifle because it is dead-on accurate. If I were to search for a centerfire lever, Henry would be one brand I would surely research. 'Just sayin.

Rossi 92 .38/357 in 16" and a 1965 Winchester 30-30. I've had the Rossi for about 7 years and reloaded a bunch of brass from my revolvers for it. It shoots great but the action is not what it will be after I get done tuning it. I'm actually going to put it on the bench and get after it this weekend. I've been putting it off but this thread reminded me that it's time. The Winchester was my dad's that he bought when we moved to Fairbanks, Alaska in 1965. When he got transferred from Cape Canaveral to Gilmour Creek, AL the NASA folks who had lived up there for a while told him not to bring the family up without at LEAST a 30-30. Thank God he never had to take on a momma moose with it as I think he practiced with it at their range one time. It's a fine, non-collector condition piece that spent most of its life in a quilted rifle case until I inherited it 4 years ago. The original box of ammo with 5 rounds missing was kept along side. Since I became its keeper, I've only put 25 rounds down range after I went through it and checked the internals. It has substantial sentimental value for me.

Henry Big Boy

Recently bought a Henry Big Boy 41 mag What fun to shoot. Bought it to match up with my Ruger Blackhawk in 41 cal. Lots of opinions on the 41 cal but love having a revolver and lever action carbine with same caliber. Heading to SC on a wild boar hunt with the 41 at teh end of March. 210 grains at 1560 fps. Will let you know how it works out!

I picked up a .357/.38 Henry Big Boy All Weather (stainless) a year or two ago. Had some issues, sent it back to Henry, they massaged the chamber and it's been flawless since. Same as others have said about their lever guns, it shoots very accurately even with steel sights and is a real hoot.

Get your wallet out. The new X series has a side loading 357/38spl.

Always loved levers and SA revolvers ("too many" cowboy movies as a kid). First gun I asked for was a lever action Red Ryder BB gun (NOT because of Ralphie) when I was 6. Took 2 years of begging. Have a Winchester .30-.30 and a Henry .22. Plan to add something in .38/.357 and .22 mag at some point. Can't help with the accessory question.

41 Mag lever - so cool!

The above velocity sounds like handgun numbers. I suspect it will be trucking (maybe 2100-2300 fps range?) out of a rifle.

41 Mag ... the caliber that I keep trying to resist

I like the way you think, but placing a can on one might be a problem depending on how the front sight is mounted.

As soon as I can get my hands one one of these Iíll be broke. I have the Big Boy steel in 357/38 SPL, large loop, 20Ē barrel and I shoot it more than any other gun I own. I have a 100 yard range at home and itís a pleasure to shoot.

I have a Skinner peep sight on it and itís wonderfully accurate at 100 yards in. The factory threaded barrel on the X is a game changer for me, Iím pumped they put it in production.
