Today we’re going to show you the Henry Big Boy Model X and the Rossi R92, both chambered in .357 magnum. They are both fun to shoot although they’re in different price brackets. The Henry Big Boy X is beefy and well refined, while the Rossi R92 is a little lighter and more budget friendly.
I think it all comes down to 2 things, personal preference and budget. There are some folks out there who are just die-hard Henry fans and to them, there isn’t another lever action rifle that stands up to a Henry. But, there are those other’s (like me) who are budget minded and while a Henry is a good gun, I think more than anything, you’re paying for the name.
I am going to place links to both Henry and Rossi so that you can do your own comparison and make your own decision as to which rile best suits your needs and wants.
First here is a little about the Henry:

Creating the mold and then breaking out of it is something that we take great pride in. It’s how we progress and continue pushing the boundaries of what lever actions are capable of. The Big Boy X Model does just that and marks an evolutionary step in a product line with quite the pedigree. Modern hunters and shooters need a robust platform with the versatility to perform several different jobs and the X Model provides it right out of the box.

Here is a little about the Rossi:
Boasting classic western styling with a flair, the R92 Gold rifles showcase a premium Brazilian hardwood forearm and stock with a traditional crescent buttplate. Providing an elegant accent to the polished black receiver, barrel, and magazine tube finish are gold finish barrel bands, hammer, trigger, lever and buttplate.
