Nickel electro-plating has a long history and it's still a popular finish thanks to its ability to maintain a long-lasting wear and tarnish-resistant finish. It also happens to stand out in a crowd, and that's exactly what Henry's Silver Boys do. The Silver Boy's nickel-plated receiver is easily engraveable with personalized receiver covers available directly from Henry. Small game hunters and plinkers will appreciate its substantial 6¾ pound heft of the Silver Boy .22. It balances well and makes for highly accurate offhand shooting. The smooth action associated with Henry rifles opens and shuts with the effortless slickness lever-lovers long for. The stock is constructed from American walnut and the barrel is blued and octagonal. Adding to the historic authenticity is the adjustable buckhorn-type rear sight. This rifle comes with the original factory box. Its wood, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
