The second in our new Patriotic Series for 2018 is a hard-hitting .44 Magnum Big Boy that splits the difference between a beautiful display rifle, and a hard-working hunting gun. This big-bore God Bless America centerfire lever action is a fine example of the gunmaker’s craft and the engraver’s art, and it’s meant to be every bit as much of a stand-out on the range as it is to be a dependable game-getter in the woods.
Holding 11 rounds of bone-smashing .44 Magnum power all topped up, this new rifle with blued 20-inch octagon barrel, our standard adjustable buck and bead sights, unobtrusive transfer bar safety, and fancy American walnut furniture, adds a highly polished nickeled plating to its hardened brass receiver.
Beautifully setting off that gleaming nickel, cross-hatch and floral scroll engraving on both sides forms an accented background for a 24K gold “God Bless America” banner below a gold outline of the 48 contiguous states of the North American continent on the right side. On the left, the Liberty Bell, first commissioned in 1752 and today one of the most iconic symbols of American liberty and independence, shows in raised gold relief right next to another “God Bless America” gold banner. In a painted mural on the stock’s right rear side, eight Americans from all walks of life stand in silhouette contemplating the proudly waving Stars and Stripes, above a gold banner bearing the opening words to the national anthem, “O Say Can You See.”
With matching high-polish nickeled brass buttplate and barrel band and our Henry no-thumb-scrape magazine tube loading, this rifle effortlessly combines a smooth action with one of the best brush-gun calibers out there, in a package that also clearly demonstrates for all to see both your appreciation for fine quality and your love for our great nation.
