Henry H004SV Golden Boy Silver 20 Inch 17 HMR Lever Action Rifle. Walnut Stock, Silver Receiver, 12 Rounds. Plating in firearms began initially as a method of corrosion-proofing in the days of blackpowder ammunition at least 150 years ago. Gunpowder at the time was highly corrosive, and working guns lived hard lives. Later on, plating with precious metals also became more important as decorative methods of creating more elaborately-embellished special-order guns. Nickel was the first as the electro-plating process evolved, and with a long history of tradition it’s still the most popular with 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 the new Golden Boy Silvers do, with no special-order delays and no special-order pricing.
Available in two “adult” barrel lengths, three rimfire calibers, and configured with octagon barrels, the nicely-figured American walnut stocks, and fully adjustable Marbles semi-buckhorn sights, this beauty features a mirror-bright nickeled receiver cover you can shave in, matching barrel band and buttplate, and a gleam that’ll get you noticed proudly anywhere you shoot it. Covering the gamut from the plinker-friendly .22 Short through a 16.5” barrel as a starter package for a youngster, on out to the flat-shooting .17 HMR with a 20” barrel as a serious rimfire levergun varmint buster, the Golden Boy Silver can brighten up any shooter’s day.
OK for Left Handed Shooters.
