After the Civil War it became a custom to present ornate engraved rifles as gifts to dignitaries, retiring military leaders and visiting heads of state. You may not have anyone in your life who has achieved such a lofty position, but we all know someone special who deserves an equally special gift that reflects the lasting impact he's made on his friends, family or coworkers. The Big Boy Deluxe is that gift. With graceful, elegant scrollwork inspired by the work of famed 19th Century engraver Louis Nimschke, this awe inspiring work of gunsmithing art is reminiscent of the priceless Henry Rifle presented to President Abraham Lincoln now on display in the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History. In addition to the stunning engraving on the solid brass receiver, the Big Boy Deluxe is also adorned with an engraved brass barrel band and a select American walnut stock.

My FFL just received my Hinterland order yesterday - Henry Big Boy Deluxe II Rifle H006CD2, 45 Long Colt; so I went in to inspect it , and fill out all the paper work. First of all, this was my first purchase of a long gun from Hinterland; ordering was as smooth as silk, and the customer service was outstanding! So easy!
The rifle itself is an incredible piece of art. I already own several Henry Rifles. including the .45 Long Colt (Non-Deluxe model), so I knew what I was buying! This rifle has surpassed my expectations! The engraving is incredible, and the wood beautiful. 100% made in America! I almost want to use it as a display only; But. in reality, I can't wait to get it to the range!
If you don't own a Henry yet... you are missing the boat!
Again, well done Henry, well done Hinterland Outfitters. Thank you!

First off, the picture does not give enough credit to this gun. Henry is ONLY making 1000 of these hand crafted beauties. the workmanship is beyond anything I have ever seen. The person who engraved my gun did it in a manner which is flawless. If you take a huge magnifying glass and look at the engravings, it will blow you away.
Once again, this gun is a pure masterpiece. All the men in the gun shop where I picked it up were drooling over its intricate details. It shoots wonderfully, dead on target every time, and packs a punch.
The only negative I have found is that the packaging from the factory is sub par, and the gun had a few minor scuffs from transport on the stock. Nothings too noticeable, in fact, no one else has noticed it.
I HIGHLY recommend this rifle to anyone looking for a big boy. I had a regular big boy and the brass receiver was full of scratches within a week. This gun definitely will avoid the scratches because it is entirely engraved.
At twice the cost of the normal big boy rifles, this gun is well worth the extra money. I cannot imagine how much work went into engraving and detailing this gun.
Best rifle I have ever bought.
