New from Henry Repeating Arms are two compact versions of the Golden Boy rimfire rifle that are intended for youth shooters.
With a shorter barrel and length of pull, the new Golden Boy Youth and Golden Boy Silver Youth lever-action rifles are compact versions of the iconic rimfire that are ideal for most youngsters or for anyone who may find a smaller firearm easier to handle.
Henry didn’t cut corners with these smaller versions. Both the Golden Boy Youth and Golden Boy Youth Silver rimfire rifles sport 17-inch octagon blued steel barrels (1:16-inch twist) and a 13-inch length of pull. The Golden Boy Youth has a Brasslite receiver finish, while the Golden Boy Youth Silver rifle’s receiver is nickel-plated. Overall length for both models is 33¾ inches.
Common to both models are a fully adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sight with diamond insert, and a brass bead front sight. Additionally, the wood stocks of the new Golden Boy Youth rimfire lever-action rifles are made from American Walnut.
Built to the same standards as their full-sized brethren and available in Brasslite or Silver, the Henry Golden Boy and Golden Boy Silver Youth rifles are perfect for youth shooters or any smaller-framed shooters looking for a lever-action rimfire rifle. In addition, the smaller dimensions shed nearly a pound of weight, with both Golden Boy Youth models weighing in at six pounds.
