Henry's Lever Octagon Frontier Model features a classic 20″ octagonal barrel in place of the round barrel found on their standard lever-action rifles. The octagonal design was favored by many shooters in the Old West as it added mass and extra weight to aid in heat absorption, making it a forerunner to the bull barrels used on modern target and varmint rifles. The barrel on the Lever Octagon Frontier Model comes topped with an easy-to-adjust Marbles semi-buckhorn rear sight and a highly-visible brass beaded front sight seated in standard 3/8″ dovetail slots. Both the stock and forearm are crafted of the same richly grained hand-finished American walnut typically found on rifles costing up to three times as much. A metal barrel band secures both the barrel and the high-capacity tubular magazine. If you prefer a more modern look, the receiver is grooved so you can top off any rifle in this line with your choice of scopes.
