Henry Big Boy Classic Model H010B
It’s a caliber that traces its origins from the battlefield to its modern-day presence in hunting camps across the country, and it’s capable of handling even the largest game in North America.
Introduced by the U.S. Army in 1873, this cartridge was first known as the .45 Government. As it made its way into commercially produced firearms the name .45-70 appeared because it was loaded with a 70-grain black powder charge with 405 and 500-grain bullets. Virtually all rifle making companies of the late 19th century chambered their single shots and lever actions for the .45-70. As those companies and their rifles faded away, the .45-70’s popularity did not. Factory .45-70 ammunition has been cataloged continuously since 1873 but never in the variety of loadings available now, in the 21st century. They range from the 405-grain lead bullet, low-velocity loads for deer hunting and target shooting to high-velocity 300 to 400 grain jacketed bullet once meant for large game.
If you need a handy yet powerful lever gun capable of fast repeat shots in the bear country of Alaska, or just a short, light rifle for deer hunting in the mountains of Pennsylvania, our new Model H010 will provide the accuracy and reliability you can count on.
This lever action is equipped with a D4 Paracord Lever Wrap as well!
